If there’s one thing we love about January (no, it’s not the short, grey days and cold weather), it’s the chance it gives us to take a look back over the previous year and assess what we’ve done best.

So take a look back with us, and enjoy the Top 5 blogs from 2012.

Our response to the programme became our most popular blog in 2012. And your responses — all 141 of them — are the most we’ve ever had on any blog.
