2012 In Review

Happy New Year!

In 2012 I set goals to help me work on my blog a bit more. While it seemed to stick for most of the year, I found it difficult at some points to keep up with my own expectations. I reached some goals. I revised others to be more realistic with my time commitments. What a year! I’m happy with the blogging I was able to accomplish and excited to reach some of my bigger goals on the side.

I hosted my first guest post by, Mel from Ginger Bakes who shared Chocolate Drizzled Mocha Cookies, wrote a cookbook review of Kitchenability 101: The College Student’s Guide to Easy, Healthy and Delicious Food, by Nisa Burns, guest posted on This Dusty House (Chicken, Lentil, and Tomato Soup) and Ginger Bakes (Banana Bread), participated in the Improv Challenge (hosted by Kristen from Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker) and much more!

What’s made this year the most special though, is the relationships I’ve made with many of my readers! Thank you to everyone who reads and to those to make time to leave comments. I love your feedback!

To celebrate 2012, I’m posting a link to the 2012 annual report for this blog (prepared by WordPress.com). Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 12,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 20 years to get that many views.

My blogging goal for the coming year? I’m going to try to post once per week, the continue participating in blog hops and the monthly Improv Challenge. I’d like to write a few more guest posts and host a few more guest posters. And, I’d like to continue cooking delicious and healthy food (that is budget friendly) to share with you!
