Wow! Choosing my top five posts of the first year was harder than I expected! The first three choices were easy. There was no question what those first three would be. But the last two picks were harder. I wrestled with questions, like how do you pick a favorite child, anyway? What makes one post better than another? How did I feel when I was writing each piece? How much of me was invested in each one? Does the number of readers who liked each post matter, and, if so, how much?
There were several close runners-up, including this post about my nephew’s cute fishing story and this one about developing “real” relationships with our friends. And then there were posts that started conversations and made a difference to people, like “A Letter To My Son’s Soccer Coach” and “Yes, I’m a Christian. No, I’m Not Like That.” However, the posts that I chose as my top 5 are posts that are so close to my heart that all kinds of hidden emotions start swirling when I read them. You can click on the infographic below to go to the “live” version. It has links that will take you to any of the posts that you want to revisit! (Aren’t these infographics FUN?!?!?)
Now it’s your turn! I REALLY want to hear about your favorite posts on Still Chasing Fireflies in the past year. Please comment, here or on Facebook or both. Let’s create a conversation. Thanks for chasing fireflies with me this year!
