It’s time for our annual re-cap. Our task is to go through the past year and add up all the traffic counts, the likes/loves/pins/shares/etc./etc, and read through the comments again. Of course, we love all our projects, so it’s always hard to limit the number. But, no one is probably interested in a Top 200 list to wade through! That’s what our Project Index is for. Hard as it was, narrow it down we did, and we invite you to take a trip down memory lane to see them all. Each and every one is linked, so you can jump over to the project page to make sure you’ve added new favorites to your must-make list… just in case you missed them the first time around.
This year, one of our personal goals is to be more inclusive, less judgmental. To that end, this year’s Top 20 list is organized in alphabetical order rather than by any kind of ranking. Like we said, “we love all our projects.”
We also love to hear your opinions! If you are so inclined, leave us a comment below to let us know which of these were on your Most Popular list, which you think we missed, and as always, give us your thoughts on projects you’d like to see in the future.
