This time last year, I was reading Mel's last ever Creme de la Creme list, a list where bloggers nominated their favourite post of the year. This year, she invited people to comment here with their favourite post of the year. I encourage you to read the comments, and click over to some really moving and important posts.
A year ago, I posted about the process I took in choosing the one post I'd submit to the Creme list, listing the posts I'd considered to be my best. This year, even though there isn't an official Creme, I didn't go through such a detailed process. I chose the post that had the most views, and that was, perhaps, the most important of those I wrote last year.
Still, there were a number of other contenders. There were posts that had a lot of readers or comments, and there were a few that were personal favourites, posts that meant (and still mean) a lot to me. They're important to me, because I know what I went through before I could even begin to write that post. Or I know how important these aspects were to my long-term healing.
Here was my list of favourite posts for 2015:
Childlessness, pain and healing: the early days of life after infertility
