I recently updated my About Me page to include some favorite posts I've done. I figured it would give new readers a sense of who I am as a blogger.
But I didn't anticipate how hard it would be to pick just a few! Looking over my posts, I saw so much in each of them. So much of who I was when I wrote them.
I just couldn't pick a handful. So here is the list I ended up with, and explanations for why I picked them.
