As a blogger and avid blog reader, there are always posts that stand out from the rest. These are the posts that mean something to me as a reader, and obviously meant something to the writer. As I was reviewing my past Weekly Reader posts, trying to complete the difficult job of picking just a few out of so many great posts, I noticed that the ones that meant the most to me were about being or becoming vegan. I know that the new year is a time that many people consider switching (or at least trying) a plant based diet, so I thought I’d share a few that touched me.
Finally, this post never made it to my Reader because it was just posted a couple days ago. Lisa always writes from the heart, and this post is a gut-wrenching review of a year she’ll be happy to say goodbye to:
Every blogger has their own favorite posts. For the same reasons as above, it meant something to the writer, it struck a chord with the reader. Here are a few of my own posts from 2013 that I’d like to share again.
There is just never not a good time to use this picture.
Many of my personal posts are sharing family events, racing recaps, and fitness updates, but sometimes I do share a little more. This year I wrote about two important women in my life, both of whom have passed away. My Aunt Lois , who died in January, and my sister Susan , who passed 10 years ago. Both women were important to me, and I love introducing them to you. Writing about them also helps me sort out my feelings and work through my grief.
I hope that I’ve had a bit of an impact on your life this past year, maybe made you laugh or cry, taught you something or motivated you in some way.
