Originally I was going to post links to my ten favorite posts in 2009. Truth is, I'm pretty full of myself, so I would've ended up directing you to every post I wrote this past years, so instead, I looked through and decided to judge by comments. Let's be honest... comments are the fruit of blogging. Although I write mainly for myself, comments are like presents (and as I'm typing this, I'm noting to myself that I need to comment more because I'm so bad about reading and not commenting!). I love to get them. I love to respond to them if I can, and I promise that I treasure every single comment almost as much as I treasure all of you.
So instead, I categorized the ten most heavily commented posts of 2009 (excluding giveaways), which I suppose is a sort of reader's favorite list. I hope you'll read them and comment if you haven't. Or comment again. Just comment. And most importantly, I hope your last day of 2009 is enjoyable and this new year brings you nothing but blessings and happiness.

I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone that Tommy's birth story was the most heavily commented post! Although I don't pay attention to stats or anything of that sort, I admit that I check my analytics once or twice a month just to see how many hits Tommy's birth story gets. Since he was born, it remains my most heavily viewed posts, still averaging about 500 unique views a month. That to me is what blogging is about... the chance to share not just the ordinary, but the extraordinary. I can't wait to see 2010 brings.
