Some goals for 2013 is to increase my traffic by 2 – 3 times and not be so “funny”!  I want to get better search word pick ups.  I am grateful for the traffic and that so many people enjoyed those posts, but my site is not supposed to “funny” per se.

    I would like to start a blog, you all make it look so easy.

    • It is actually a lot of work. lol But it is a lot of fun, and there is a great community of bloggers. My husband, however, just tells me I’m playing on the computer, even though it is helping us financially. grrrr I think he just likes to give me a hard time!

  5. Laura Lane says

    I wouldn’t begin to know how to get numbers like that.

  6. Good numbers, but are you still having fun?

    • I am having fun! There is a fantastic community of bloggers, plus I really enjoy working with the brands and people in general. Thank you for asking! Happy New Year!!

  7. Congrats..I wish I knew how to start a blog and make it work. Your numbers are amazing and so is your blog!

  8. Terri Herman says

    Looks like you are doing well! Keep up the good work and 2013 should be as good if not better!

  9. Tina Seagraves says

    I just started using twitter and stumble.

  10. Brandy Horton says

    Congratulations!! That’s amazing!! 🙂

  11. Stephanie Larison says

    Pretty cool how you can get all the numbers like that. Congrats and I hope this year has even more visitors!

  12. I so want to know how to make money blogging!! Any good tips?

    • I would say start with something you enjoy writing about. If you are writing about topics you enjoy, you will never run out of things to say. I love writing about things with my children and parenting…and it is a never ending learning process. Good luck!

  13. Nena Sinclair says

    You’re doing fantastic! Congrats on your great year and here’s to an even better 2013!

    Wow! Great job! You’re very inspiring. Would you consider doing a post/series on how you got started blogging?

    • Thank you Marthalynn! I guess that is something I should consider. I still feel like there is so much I am still learning that I hadn’t really thought of that before. Happy New Year!

  16. Congratulations. Those are some GREAT numbers! Can’t wait to see what they’re like next year.
