Top Five Posts of 2017

It’s the time of year for Top Somenumber Posts! I’ve enjoyed seeing other bloggers share their top posts of the year. Here are the five posts on that generated the most interaction. As you can see, three of them were reflections on / descriptions of things that happened at Express Fluency 2017. I hope you (re)find something useful!
