Top 3

I was interested to find out what my top 3 posts of 2012 were.


#3




I'm not going to lie.  This was a surprise to me.  Yes, the jean jacket is way cool :-) but I'm not exactly sure why this post got as many page views as it did.  I'm thinking it hit social media just right that day.



#2



I received a lot of great feedback from this post, and think I'll run with this idea more often.  We're all trying to maximize our current closets, right?  Do you have any item in particular that you'd like to see remixed?



#1



I love that this was my most viewed blog post of the year.  A post about my babies (!) and something I spent a lot of time on...(writing out and with experience)

And there you have it!  Top 3 of 2012.  


Also...a few things...

*I'll be taking a break from blogging for a week.  I'll be soaking up all the Christmas I can get, AND I'll be working on a new blog design with the fab, Colleen.  So I'll see you next Thursday, the 27th.

*My Favorite Things link up will be the last day of December (Monday the 31st).  I can't wait to read your posts about December!

*If you are interested in sponsoring Dancing with Ashley in January, I'd love to have you!  Click here for more information.  

*Have a very Merry Christmas, my friends!! 

Make sure you enter to win a beautiful necklace and a Sephora gift card here.
Linking up with Katie and Jena today.

Sometimes our top-viewed posts seem so random, and then sometimes you do feel justly that a certain post deserved a lot of views. Funny how that little bit of blogging goes.
And one of these days I'll have to start researching everything I should know about babies before having one...but baby fever hasn't hit yet in this house....

LikeWhat YouWearing said...

love your post in which you style your sweater to go with 3 different outfits, great idea of maximizing your closet!!
Thanks for dropping by our blog, would you love to follow each other?

I love this idea for a post, looking back at your top three biggest hits for your blog. I loved reading the "11 things you should know before having a baby" post! And the 3 outfits remixed is always a good idea for a post! I know chambray tops are always popular! Would love to see how you style that ;)
