Let me guess.
Right about now you’re looking back and wondering where the hell 2014 went.
Seriously, how can twelve whole months disappear so damn quickly?
Regardless, it was an interesting year for us bloggers.
In January, Matt Cutts announced the death of guest blogging (although it still seems to be in rude health almost a year later).
In the summer, Google killed off its Authorship project, which sucked if you wanted more recognition for your content. (But, hey, at least you didn’t write a 15,343 word guide on the topic.)
It was also the year that blogging platform Medium gained some serious momentum (though you know you still need your own blog, right?)
And a brand new social network called Ello created a lot of buzz in a short space of time and then faded into the background almost as rapidly.
But as another blogging year approaches, it’s important to celebrate the highlights of the one about to pass.
So let’s get started.
