Top Blog Posts of 2016

It has been exactly one year  and one month since I started my blog. Previously I was thinking of celebrating this milestone by arranging a giveaway but since I do not have that many followers yet I decided yo do a top blog post of 2016 post to give recognition to the posts that had the most views
