The Best of 2017: Reader Picks, Award-Winning Work and Team Favorites
It’s December. There was snow on the deck when I let the dogs out this morning. Snow! I don’t know if you’re like me, but every December I have a moment where I surprisingly ask myself, “how the heck did 12 months go by?” As a person who is constantly thinking about the future, I rarely step back and reflect at what has been accomplished. So, every year, when I ask myself where the time went, I take that moment to do just that. This post is that reflection. We’ll recap some audience favorites, some team favorites and yes, there might be a tasty recipe link. Stay with me, it’ll be fun.
As editor of the blog, I am fortunate to interact with every post before it’s live. And our blog team always has our ear to the ground to understand what kind of stories we need to create to help our members. And we’ve created some really great stuff this year. But I spend more time with this team of super-stars that help put this blog together than my own family, so you might say I’m biased.
These folks aren’t. Check out the awards we’ve won this year.
Digital Health Information Awards
Spring 2017 – Bronze award: Active TV Time

Fall 2017 – Silver award: Supersize Snacks Equal a Supersize You

Those are just a few posts the team thought would be worthy of submitting for awards. We’ve created many more. In fact, more than 100 so far! That includes articles, videos, infographics and even audio with a guided meditation. Now let’s cut to the chase.
