These are the blog posts that attracted the highest number of comments during the year, so hopefully there’s some correlation between how many comments a post received and how interesting, enjoyable or thought-provoking it was.
Anyway, here’s the list.
If you find yourself with nothing to do over Christmas and New Year, perhaps something in these articles will help you pass the time and prepare you and your investments for 2018 and beyond:

Before I sign off for the year, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who read one (or more) of my blog posts in 2017, especially those who left comments. The nature of a blog means it’s mostly me doing all the talking, but I do enjoy the feedback and debate of the comments section as well.
Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and I’ll be back in 2018. Unless I get bored eating mince pies, in which case you’ll probably hear from me next week.
