It's that time of year again! Everyone is counting down the "Most or Best or Whatever" of 2014. And I'm joining in. Here are my five most visited blog posts in 2014.
4. Headband Organizer-I created this for a blog hop for Buttons Galore and More. I guess a lot of people need to organize their children's headbands! But seriously, since I created this project in December 2013, it has withstood the test of time. Not just on my blog, but also in my daughter's room. She still uses it to hold her headbands and it is still holding up.
3. Kitchen Aid Mixer Makeover-Gosh this is a pretty project! I love how it looked. But, if I'm going to be honest, it didn't work for very long. Even though I removed the decals when I needed to clean it (which, admittedly was a pain), the ink still ran just from using the mixer and getting wet ingredients on it. I still love the idea though and will probably try to find another way to make it work. Maybe some printable, cut vinyl? (Silhoutte-call me!)
2. Crafts for Kids: Pipe Cleaners-I have to say, I'm at loss as to why this one was so popular. I mean it as some cute photos of projects my daughter and I created using pipe cleaners, but I didn't share a tutorial. Maybe it's has really good keywords? I'll take it though and hope that it introduced some new readers to my blog.
1. How to Survive the Stomach Flu-Again, I'm guessing I did a good job of using keywords on this post, but I would also like to think that it has some really good information. I worked hard on this post and I wrote it because I really love to help people heal themselves and their children as naturally as possible.
What's interesting to me about this list is that none of the posts I wrote in 2014 were the most popular! Which makes a girl wonder…am I losing you? I'm taking this list to heart and studying it because I want to offer content that interests my readers and is helpful to them. If I have failed in that this year, I want to win you back. If you want to help me out, let me know what your favorite posts are. Or tell me which ones you hated.
And, if you have a blog, I highly recommend doing this exercise for your blog too. You learn a lot about your writing and the reading interests of your readers. It's a great launching place for some new business goals! Happy New Year!
