Another year is coming to a close – can you believe it?!

The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on the past while setting plans for the future. We want to extend our gratitude to all our readers who frequently visit our blog. You motivate our team to continuously produce a variety of thought-provoking, educational, and valuable content.

There are a variety of ways to break down ‘the best of the blog’. We could do a single list based on the most visited post, most shared, most likes on social media, etc. We decided to break down ‘the best’ into several categories: the most popular based on visits, the most popular on each social network (ie most likes/shares/comments), and our most popular infographic.

Without further ado, the winners are….

Unfortunately, we were forced to reset our Google+ profile in September. Our headquarters in Connecticut moved to a new office and through much pain and turmoil of trying our best to have Google simply update our profile, they forced us into deleting our old profile and creating a whole new Google business account. It was very disheartening as we had put a lot of work into building that brand account for close to a decade. Although we are disappointed, we will rebuild! If you could give our Google+ profile a follow, we would be so grateful! It is the season of giving after all 😉 Drop us a link to your profile in the comments and we’ll return the favor!
