It's been quite a year! At the start, I set myself the goal of writing one meaningful blog post a week. On the whole, I'm pleased to report that this has been achieved - with varying success. It's sometimes hard to keep writing at the top of the to-do list when things get busy with client work. However, I'm quite happy that this post will be the 48th blog post of this year - and with 3 weeks to go, it means I am only off of my target of 52 blog posts by four.
However, I know it's not simply about numbers. It's about quality. That's the real challenge. But there is always fresh brand and culture ideas and tools to share.
Below are the most popular of this year based on visits. I hope you enjoy a look back at 2019 and any posts you may have missed that might be helpful to you...
