My Favorite Pieces from 2012

My Favorite Pieces from 2012

It”s pretty much impossible to embrace a new year without looking back at the year that just ended. The same questions always arise: What did you do? What did you learn? Where did you go? Who did you meet? What changed? And what stayed the same?

A new year is also a great time to look back at the work you did–a practice that is particularly easy for those of us who put much of our work into print (virtual or actual). With that in mind, here are a few of my favorite espnW pieces from 2012.
