A Look Back: My 12 Most Read Posts of 2021 (And a Few More!)

Originally, I’d planned to power through all the posts I’ve had in draft form this week, but, since most people are taking the week off from life, I figured it makes more sense to spend this time taking a look back. New content can start next week. For now, I want to share what you may have missed . I started yesterday with a recap of my travel content from the past year and, today, I have the most read posts of 2021.

I set a goal for 2021 to publish two blog posts a week. That didn’t happen — and I’m totally fine with it. Reaching 84 out of 104 isn’t so bad in the big scheme of things. That’s a solid B, right? Plus, I took on so many exciting writing and design projects that I simply didn’t have the bandwidth to publish here as regularly as I would have liked to. Will that change in 2022? Hopefully not because I absolutely loved every project I took on. But I will make sure to adjust my blog goal accordingly.

The 12 Most Read Posts of 2021

A caveat before we begin: I split this list out into two sections. The first has the posts that were published in 2021 and most read in 2021. There may have been posts that ranked higher than these but, unless they actually went live between January 2021 and today, they aren’t on this first list.

Without further ado, let’s get into the published and read in 2021.
