It’s New Year’s Eve! Did your year go by as quickly as mine did? I can’t believe 2015 is already over.

It’s always interesting to look back on the past year. Checking out your favourite articles of the year also helps me decide what I should focus on writing about in the upcoming year. I hope you enjoy reading your favourite articles again or perhaps discovering something you’ve missed this year.
