Top 10 Blog Posts for 2014

I am joining Sally over at Elementary Matters for her linky and so in lieu of doing a Top 10 Book List for January, I am doing this instead (I hope you forgive me).
This was a year of getting back on track, it was the first year of my new normal (my mom died 11/13). Looking back on my blog posts, I certainly did not do as much as when I first started, but what I did post I am very proud of. This year I blogged about more than just books, and many of those "other" posts are in my top 10.

So without further ado, here are my most viewed blog posts for 2014. I actually included an 11th, because it did not make it to the Top 10 but it is near and dear to my heart.

If you click on the picture, it will take you to the actual blog post.
