The Best of 2016

Happy New Year everyone!

I’m finally back from London and ready to get the new year started. First, I just wanted to share a change that I’ll be making in my writing.

Last year I wrote two posts every week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. It was a great way to build my writing habit, but I also felt that my posts were at times lacking and I didn’t have enough time to truly flesh out the ideas I was exploring.

On the other hand, it was a great way to learn to write against a hard deadline and bang out work no matter how uninspired I may have felt.

This year I want to try something a little different. I’m going to reduce my writing down to once a week on Wednesdays, but also aim for higher quality, long form pieces that are well thought out and researched. The first one will be next week and I hope you enjoy it.

Now, on to my top 10 posts of 2016!
