Our 1 Year Blogiversary
On January 5th we celebrated 1 year since we hit publish on our first blog post, this Overnight French Toast recipe. Looking back we have grown so much since then as writers and have learned so much about the business of blogging. I knew nothing about html codes one year ago. I still don’t know a whole lot but I’m learning everyday!
100,000 Page Views
On the same day that we celebrated our 1 year birthday we also celebrated the milestone of reaching 100,000 page views! For those of you not familiar with blogging, this means that our site was viewed 100,000 times in the first year!!!
Over the past year we have seen our blog traffic increase as well as the number of followers we had on our various social media outlets…except Facebook. No matter what we tried it seemed like no one wanted to “like” our Facebook page and interact with us. However in the past several weeks we have seen a huge change. People are now interacting with us and we reached 500 Facebook fans this week!
Today wraps up our celebration week and it’s also my birthday! Do I have big plans? Nope! I really just want to spend the day in my pajamas and be lazy. I slept late (like really late) this morning. I’m going to do a little blogging and then probably spend the rest of the day with my Kindle and the new book I downloaded. It’s funny how birthday celebrations change once we get older. Gone are the days of big celebrations with friends. I am perfectly happy with a day at home with no one asking me to do their laundry or cook dinner!
We want to thank YOU, our readers, for following us and supporting us this past year. We couldn’t have reached all of these milestones (well, except my birthday) without you. So thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts! Thanks for reading our posts, commenting and following us on social media! We are looking forward to another year!
