“Playing favorites”

People have told me they’ve gone back weeks or even months to read my old blog posts that they may have missed or re-read ones that stood out to them. I love when that happens.

In that spirit, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my most popular blog posts from the past few months – and one that’s nearly a year old but continues to show up in my analytics (so I guess I did something right if people are still reading it!).


These are all you need.
