Best and Brightest Linky

By on December 24, 2012 in Uncategorized with 4 Comments

I spent my day being lazy today.  There’s so much I need to do to get ready to host Christmas dinner, but I did none of it today.  I guess that means that’s how I’ll be spending my Christmas eve since I’m sitting here blogging (and watching The Sound of Music) instead of cleaning.  I decided to link up with Christina Bainbridge’s Best and Brightest linky party.

My most viewed post of the year (which is all time for me since this is my first year blogging) was the post where I shared my 2nd grade Common Core math warm ups.  My top 3 posts are actually the three posts where I explained the different grade level sets.  It’s amazing to me that the posts with the most traffic of mine were of me sharing products I created.  It’s very ironic to me that my posts where I’m more personal are often overlooked by many followers.  You can click the picture below to see the post about the 2nd grade warm ups.

Two other very popular posts had freebies.  The most popular freebie post was where I shared some of my terms for common phonics “chunks”.

The second most popular freebie post was where I shared my Easter Color by Sight word sets

One thing I’d like to brag about is my new clip art venture.  I never thought I’d be able to sell some of the things I created to use in my products.  After a lot of encouragement and support from some fantastic blogger friends,  I decided to take the plunge!  I shared much of it in this blog post

I also am so happy of many of the friendships I’ve made throughout blogging this past year.  There are some pretty talented teachers out there in this world and I’m happy to call them my friend.  If you want to see some of my favorite bloggers, you can check out my pinboard here.

Thank you so much for finding and following me this year.  Blogging has been such an outlet for me this year.  I’m still in shock that anyone wants to read anything I have to say.  I’m excited to see what 2013 will bring!

  1. I know what you mean – the posts where I talk more about stuff I want to share have less views, but my products tend to get more! I guess we're all hunting for new ideas.

    I linked up, too!
