I am not only nearing the end of 2015 but also rounding the corner to my second blog anniversary. It’s been fun to look back on the Top Ten Posts and how this blog has grown.
This year was an exciting one for growing my readership. In March I attended a blog conference in Nashville and met many wonderful women. One of them was Brenda Coffee who runs 1010 Park Place.
1010 Park Place
A few weeks after the blog conference, I received a call from Brenda. She loved what I was doing on my blog and invited me to write for her site which I began doing in June on a weekly basis.
Brenda was recently featured in a great book called The Woman’s Wakeup: How to Shake Up Your Looks, Life, and Love After 50. I bought several books as Christmas presents for girlfriends and they all loved it! The fashion shoots alone are worth it! You can find a copy at Amazon.
Here’s a sneak peek of Brenda in the first chapter. She looks fabulous!
My first post at 1010 Park Place was on Scarves and how they make a chic summer accessory.
You can find me weekly under the Voices section.
OMG Lifestyle Featured on the Huffington Post
In November I had the pleasure of being featured in The Huffington Post. The exposure was amazing and I have to admit, it was very exciting to see my post published.
My Growing Blog Traffic
Being the second year of my blog, many of my posts from my first year started gaining traction. I ran a report through my Google Analytics to see which of my 285 posts were the most popular.
My top ten posts get tens of thousands of readers monthly and are re-pinned on Pinterest daily. The numbers are astounding. Thank you to my loyal readers and welcome new ones.
It’s been a fun and exciting two years and I look forward to 2016, sharing more OMG Worthy Food, Fashion, Decor, Travel and Lifestyle articles.
I’ve enjoyed creating this blog so much so that I will be launching a second blog called Step-by-Step Blogging which will go live the beginning of January. If you know of anyone wanting to start a blog, please pass it along.
In case you have missed any of these, here are my top ten posts that were viewed in 2015. I’d love to know which was your favorite.
Top Ten Posts for 2015
In six weeks time, this post has had over 45,000 visits from readers. Two of the most popular links on that post were My Recipe of the Week which were these Spinach Balls from Once a Month Meals. Equally popular was my link on How to Clean Your Make Up Brushes from Lydi Out Loud.
Again, I thank you for your readership and for helping me make this blog a success.
My best wishes to you and yours for a happy and healthy new year.
