2016 has seen another stellar line-up of guest editors, who have shown us around their webs; their favourite blogs, apps, instagrammers and more. We've hosted cookbook authors, fitness experts, designers, bloggers, e-commerce experts and more, making our weekly slot one of those newsletters you're pleased to see in your inbox. More to the point, we've been introduced to new sites and people worth following.
These are the most popular guest edits in 2016, the pages that have been visited most but don't forget that our archive is stuffed full of interesting articles from other like-minded experts. Even if their selections haven't performed as well as the ones below, they too are worth checking out or re-visiting.
We always like to end the year on a culinary note, given that many of us are food focussed as the festive season approaches. Who better to turn to than Diana Henry
, the award-winning food writer, journalist and broadcaster, who recently published her latest book SIMPLE
