A Year in Review: Kristina Driskill’s Blog Posts from 2016

The end of the year is often a time for reflecting before looking forward. This past week I’ve been appreciating the triumphs and trials of 2016, as both can provide a multitude of information one can use to learn and grow. I’ve also reflected on my first year of blogging, where I’m proud to have produced 48 (maybe useful??) articles. And for this last post of the year, I thought I’d wrap up by providing a complete list of articles I’ve written in 2016, arranged by general category as a reference for you.

So in case you missed some of these or want to visit them again, here’s a post you can bookmark to find everything from my blogging in 2016.

And regardless of whether you’ve had a good year or a tough one, I hope you will join me in looking forward to 2017!
