As the year draws to a close, we’re looking back at what’s gone on through the particular prism of our own writing. You’ll find other lists that are contain more news-worthy events, sure, but you won’t find one seen through our particular words.

And if you’re a relative newcomer to htxt.africa, this is a great chance to acquaint yourself with our favourite features and style of writing. That way you can work out if you want to stick around. Also, since the chances are you haven’t read these early features yet, it’s a neat way to relax during your time off.

We begin our annual review in June, not because we especially dislike the preceding five months, but rather because that’s when we started work on htxt.africa. Our initial plan was to spend a little bit of time on the site every day in addition to our day jobs and just see what readers took to. That didn’t last too long.

Did we miss anything? Were there other stories of import in June? Let us know below.
