The Best of 2014: My #1 Blog Post of the Year

It’s been fun counting down my top blog posts of the year as the sun sets on 2014. It was a unique year of blogging between a stable life in California and an anything-but-stable life on the road. Interestingly enough, all five of my most read posts of the year came from that former time of stability. In case you missed any of my countdown, here’s a quick rundown of the top-4: At #5, it was “Donald Miller Hates Going to […]

The Best of 2014: My #2 Blog Post of the Year

To celebrate the close of 2014, I’ve been counting down my top-5 blog posts of the year. It all started with some Donald Miller empathy at #5. Then some #RunningTo foreshadowing at #4. Then some Enneagram goodness at #3. Today, I reach the #2 post on this countdown: a post from February 14 called “The Real Reason Why I’ve Never Dated.” Valentine’s Day is that lovely/obnoxious season of the year when you’re either reminded of the romance in your life or […]

The Best of 2014: My #3 Blog Post of the Year

I’m in the midst of an end-of-year countdown featuring my top-5 blog posts of the year! If you missed #5, click over here. If you missed #4, click over there. And if you missed #3 . . . PSYCHE, you didn’t miss it. Because here it is! It’s from April 15, and it’s called “I’m an Enneagram Type 4: An Introduction.” This past spring I wrote a four-part series on the Enneagram, a personality system that splits humanity into nine distinct types, […]

The Best of 2014: My #4 Blog Post of the Year

I’m currently counting down my top blog posts of the year. Yesterday, I revealed #5 on the elite list. Today, I climb the ladder to #4; after nearly seven months of this nomadic life on the road, this particular post hits me hard. It’s a post from January 29, and it’s called “Why I’m Sad and Why I Might Run Away.” Back before #RunningTo was even a thing, I was feeling beyond restless and despondent in California. I wanted to cry, I wanted to quit, and […]

The Best of 2014: My #5 Blog Post of the Year

As 2014 winds down, I thought it’d be fun to look back on the wandering year that was and countdown my top blog posts of the year. And what a unique year of blogging it was, split between 5 months in California and 7 on the road. Interestingly enough, all five of my most viewed posts occurred prior to my #RunningTo starting line. Not sure what that says about the quality of blog posts since my journey began in June, but OH WELL. So it […]
