What a year this has been. I began the year with a little blog that had near zero visits and absolutely zero comments for almost 6 months, then something happened and people began to embrace the ramblings they found here. My stats tell me I ended the year with 28,000 views. Thank you all so much for embracing me this way.
Here are the top 5 posts of 2012 in reverse order:
5. Let’s redefine poverty: This post was written from my heart. I shared the story of my amazing great-grandmother and how she sacrificed her wealth during the depression to save other people from a life of uncertainty in a trying time.
4. No stove, but I have a rice cooker: I was so used to having a stove, had one my entire life, until I made the move a year ago. Heidi at Lightly Crunchy mentioned she’d like to know how I used my rice cooker, so this post was written for her.
3. Remembering to be grateful: This was probably my shortest post yet. I was having a busy day and posted a quote on gratitude which started my month of gratitude inspired by Kathy of Smart Living 365
2. One lovely Blog Award: This was my first blogging award. I had no idea what to do with it. I wasn’t sure if this was some sort of chain letter in the blogging world, if I should write a post to go with it, or pretend I knew nothing about it (which I really didn’t). My thanks go to Heather at the Homestead at Spring Creek for my first introduction to awards.
And the most viewed post:
Warts of any kid, forget the doctor: It’s hard to believe a blog about simple living in a small space hit a nerve and had a post about healing warts (including plantar warts) would be my most viewed post of the year.
