2012 Review

I have always loved those "Top 10 or 100 Whatever of the Year" countdowns that come out after Christmas.  They count down the top songs, commercials, books, celebrity events - you name it!  To me, it's a fun way to remember all the stuff that happened over the past 12 months.  So, I did a little Top Ten of my own for the Blog!  First, I started by checking the stats to find out which ten posts were the "most viewed" during the year.  They are as follows:
  1. I've Created a Monster
  2. Cleaning is Like Eating Oreos
  3. Sausage, Spinach, and White Bean Pasta
  4. Tightrope Walking
  5. Beach Vacation
  6. Five Reasons We Do Not Have An Elf On The Shelf
  7. My parenting Dilemma
  8. A Little Gem
  9. Christmas Toys 2012
  10. Why I Love Online Grocery Shopping
Even though the google stats say these are the top ten, I don't feel this list is truly representative.  For example,  I'm sure the first two were mostly viewed because of the pictures I included in them - and probably #4, too.  I got loads of spam comments on #3 and #5 which, I'm certain, account for a very large percentage of the page views on those two.  So, I decided to come up with my own top ten list - My Top Ten Favorite Posts from 2012.  (Not surprisingly, only one from the above list made my list of favorites!)

  1. Dear CeCe (a good one to re-read today - Happy 17th Birthday Squirt!!!)
  3. The Devil is in the Details
  4. Accomplishments
  5. Tightrope Walking
  6. Encyclopedia Punishment
  7. Seizing the Moments
  8. Walking with Megan
  9. Skunked (because now I can laugh about it!)
  10. Paris: Part 1
The first ten may garner the most views, but these last ten are the ones that really represent my blog.  I had lots of fun going back through the posts to create this list.  I hope you will enjoy reading or re-reading some of them, too!

Happy New Year!!!!!

What a fun year end review. Does Blogspot put one together for you? Wordpress makes up an annual report for all the blogs rather like you did using the running stats they provide.

Hope your 2013 is an amazing one. Have a very safe and happy New Year!

Thanks! With Blogspot, I can view how many page views each post has gotten. I can also see a list of the most viewed based on day, week, month, or all time.
