Today a question by a blogger was posed on WORDPRESS – “What was your favorite post that you wrote in 2015?” That is a tricky question. The posts I enjoyed writing or felt had the most “impact” were within the “social good or philanthropy”. But, interestingly the post that had the most direct readership (from WordPress directly vs. a “third party”) was a fashion blog – a topic I rarely discuss.
So – which blogs made the list with readers and which were my favorites here on Where Learning Meets Laughter?
WORDPRESS READERS FAVORITES:

Close “runner- ups”:
A Letter to Teachers with Students who have ADD/ ADHD also was very well received. (and similar blogs about learning disabilities were nearly as popular.) I also must admit these blogs were on my “favorite” list, too!
MY PERSONAL FAVORITES
Dear Burlington Times was written in March 2015 as a response to a published letter to the editor titled: “Signing Specialists are a Distraction”, by a Mr. Muccolini. Apparently their reader had taken issue with sign language interpreters who help convey information during public and media events, but “distract” hearing people. (Sigh) After Mr. Mussolini authored his letter to the editor my Signing Families inbox was beyond full with requests to “do something” – so I did.
My response was passionate and very well received. Sadly, Mr. Mussolini or the paper issued a response to my letter to the editor. At least I had the gumption to “do something” – social good triumphed!
YouTubers with hearts of gold and mad social media skills!
When you get to spend time at a Vanity Fair event with iJustine, Tyler Oakley and Joey Garceffa it is a day like no other! These YouTube sensations taught me a lot about social media from the eyes of millennials. Have to admit I bow with respect to all as they are accomplished authors on top of having loyal fans and profitable YouTube channels. It was a pleasure to meet them during OSCARS 2015 (actually, I had met Justine prior, but we didn’t have a chance to really connect until last February.) Here is my blog about this fun and funny experience!
When I get an opportunity to promote a #SocialGood cause or company that is dedicated to helping others, it makes my heart sing. Here is a list of many of the social good blogs I penned from 2015. Please take a minute to get to know these fabulous people dedicated to helping others in our communities and worldwide.
