Hey y’all, Mark back again for another year end recap. It has been an eventful year. We’ve added more bloggers to our team which is great, really increased our readership(it seems like you guys like us!) and have made it a full 2 years in existence on the interwebs (beating the odds every day). Not bad if I say so myself. I was going to change this to the 2013 playlist to be more “with the times” but something about “mixtape” makes it sound more romantic. That’s right I just used romantic and tech blogging in the same sentence, deal with it. These posts were all written in 2013, for last year’s mix you can find it here.

That’s quite the list. It also means Charity needs to write more since 30% of this list are her posts. If there was a post you loved that didn’t make the list let us know in the comments. If there are topics you’d like to learn more about please put it in the comments and we will do our best. Comments make this blog go round. Thanks again everyone. You keep reading we’ll keep writing. Also for those readers in the USA except Florida, try to stay warm. I know people on the other side of the world really care about the local weather here but this is seriously nuts. Check the link for some pictures of this madness. We’ll be back Wednesday with an all new post to kick off 2014. Until then….
