Top Posts of 2016 for The Morrell Tale

It’s always so fun for me to see what posts were popular throughout the year. I love looking at both WordPress’s Jetpack as well as Google Analytics. I don’t really read much into them or use them as a marketing strategy. But, I do just love looking at the results. So, I thought I’d share what the top posts of 2016 for The Morrell Tale were this year.
