A Look Back at 2012
2012 was a great year for my blog! I gained a lot of great new readers, got to have some awesome giveaways and wrote a lot of posts that apparently a lot of your liked!
I started posting more crafts and activities for kids this past year. My top viewed post this year was my “Beary” Special (non-candy) Valentine treat idea!
Be sure to check out these other great Valentine craft posts also:
And another craft was in my top five most visited posts – Kid’s Frugal Fun Paper Towel Roll Airplane
I did a few posts on What $5 Can Get – Couponer vs. Non-Couponer. My second post in that series was my second most visited post in 2012! See it here.
Also, check out the other posts in that series:
I also gained a lot of Fred’s shoppers as readers this year! My fourth most visited post was about the new SmartBucks/SmartCard program Fred’s started early in 2012!
Here are some fun facts about my blog traffic in 2012:
About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 170,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
In 2012, there were 4,907 new posts (that’s an average of 13-14 posts a day), growing the total archive of this blog to 7,253 posts.
The busiest day of the year was February 18th with 2,063 views. (That day is my wedding anniversary. A ton of people visited to read this post about my anniversary. How funny!)
I got to do a lot of reviews this year. Here’s some of my favorite products (and places and events!) I got to review this year!
Jake and the Neverland Pirates Party Supplies from Discount Party Supplies
And on a personal note, I lost 33 pounds in 2012!
Thanks for being a reader! I can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store!
