Hello my friends.
Have you been staying healthy?
I sure hope so because I’m just getting over a terrible cold and cough that seemed to last forever. Somehow I always seem to be sick around New Years …although the optimist in me thinks it’s not actually a bad way to begin the year. I figure it’s got to get better from there, right?
Anyway, today I began to feel like my old, energetic self. and after spending two awful hours trying to fix my email issues with my server, I decided to take a look at the most viewed posts from 2013. I don’t usually look at my stats because personally I think it sucks all the fun out of blogging. But it was interesting to see what the readers liked.
If you’re curious, here are my top viewed posts by the month:
In January when I was on the verge of a change readers were definitely interested in whether I would paint my fireplace.
February was the first time I shared my kitchen before tweaking it a few more times. And thanks to Hometalk and Pinterest that post along with my White Chalk-painted Fireplace both got 20,000 views which is a lot for this little blogger.
In March, I wrote a post after I heard Oprah interview Nate Berkus and readers liked this topic,
But an equal number also clicked on What We Remember in the End.
In May… 10 Simple things… was the most viewed post.
Although THIS POST seemed to resonate with other mothers.
In June readers liked getting some
readers enjoyed seeing how a pile of old wood became a rustic plank table
which got almost the same
number of views as one of my most sentimental posts ever.
The most viewed post in August was my 7 tips for creating a festive, fun birthday table.
and in October my chalkboard art on my Fall mantel was the most viewed alongside
In November readers were interested in painting projects
and in a love letter to my Body which elicited a lot of thoughtful emails…
while in December …well that’s easy. Everyone seems to enjoy seeing homes decorated for the holidays and so my Christmas Home tour got the most views at the end of the year.
And that’s it.
2013 is over and our home is still for sale. And there’s still a big move waiting to happen and lots of unknowns about our next home in a new city. Which makes 2014 a rather significant year for me.
Sigh, it’s so nice to have you along for the journey.
