At the start of a new year I always like to assess what I did last year on the blog. Today I FINALLY wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who supported my blog in 2012. I was given a lot of great opportunities last year, and I couldn’t have that without great blog readers and friends. I couple of weeks ago I got my “2012 Report” from WordPress, and I just wanted to take a moment to thank and recognize my top commenter, referrals, and some other folks who really helped out last year!
First I want to say thanks to my top 5 commenters. These ladies have awesome blogs and everyone should drop by and say hello to them!
And I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed, but I actually keep a top 5 list of my to blog referrals each month. It’s my way of saying thanks to people for bringing traffic to my site, and hopefully I can bring a little traffic to theirs in return. In 2012, my top referring blogs were:
Again, these are some great blogs, and you should all go by their places and give them a follow!
Of course, a lot of referrals I get are through linky parties, so I also want to thank everyone who hosts linky parties. I always appreciate the chance to promote my stuff any way that I can, and it’s always so much fun to see what everyone else has in store for us each week.
I also want to thank all of the companies and individuals who advertised here last year through sidebar ads, paid posts, product reviews, and giveaways. Because of your support, I was able to move my blog to WordPress and take it to a whole new level. And I think that last year’s partnerships and campaigns led to some really great content, which I couldn’t have had otherwise.
And finally I want to thank everyone who guest posted here or invited me to guest post at their blogs. I really enjoy the chance to share content and collaborate with you guys, and hint hint…I welcome any and all invites and requests for blog swaps and guest posting in 2013!
