Most Popular Articles of 2013

Today marks the anniversary of synkroniciti’s first blogpost, Inspiration and the Perfect Breath. Happy birthday to us! Our style and blog savvy has certainly grown. Thank you for being a part of our journey.

These are the ten most visited articles of the past 365 days. This list favors older posts, since they have been up longer. I will follow them with ten of my personal favorites that have not yet received as much traffic. The next few weeks will see similar lists for photoblogs, quotes and videos. Some of my favorite articles also qualify as photoblogs, so you’ll be seeing them on that list. Happy Reading!
