We love it when someone boils down the best into a chewable list. Trim away the fat and just serve us the meat and potatoes. (Don’t you wish preachers did that?) This post does.
I’ve done a little boiling, trimming, and analyzing, and I found two groups of “Top 5” posts for you. As we close out 2015, I’ll share:
- The top 5 posts from my blog this year
- The top 5 of all time.
I’ll even give you my personal top 5 favorites from this year. Check them out.
