We’ve hit some interesting milestones!
I debated posting this today because I missed the opportunity to say it when it happened. In fact WordPress missed it too, because they somehow forgot all the email subs! Regardless, I am extremely grateful for each and every one of you who reads my posts, gives feedback, disputes my logic, etc. It is really amazing to know that there are people across the globe that read my content. Also, knowing that I have never met 99% of you, it is such an honour to have your continuous support!
I don’t know what the future of GWS holds, but I know for sure that I would want to have you in that picture.
For fun, here are some of the highlights of the past few months:
Most popular posts:
It is interesting to see that most people were more interested in posts about blogging and mental health than anything else. This may be because of the year we had, or the fact that I have many newbie bloggers in my GWS family. If this is what you guys want to see more of, that can be done! Just drop a comment below 😉
Least viewed content:
I have my theory on this – these posts came out before the majority of my present followers subscribed. Either that or no one cares about the face behind GWS 😛
Posts I enjoyed writing the most:
This series will forever hold a piece of my heart because of what it meant to me. For those who don’t know, I lost my mom when I was fourteen. She was my biggest cheerleader, my best friend and my comfort. Losing her was devastating and I decided to stop writing after she passed. Mainly because I lost my desire to write but also because she was the one who got me started int he first place. Writing this series was the most therapeutic thing I have ever done to overcome the grief I felt. It may not have been popular on the blog, but it is the work I am most proud of.
Best month – two milestones in one
December – This is most likely because I participated in Blogmas, and published a whopping 28 posts in total! I don’t think I will ever do blogmas again, but it was good to have experienced at least once.
Most supportive blogger friends:
Firstly, I want to mention that every single one of you has supported me in more ways than one. Just the fact that you have read my content, subscribed to the blog, liked a few posts, or written some comments has meant the world to me. Of course, I am highlighting 3 bloggers (of the many) who have gone above and beyond. 3 Bloggers who support me day in and out both on the blog and offline.
This girl is insanely supportive and the main reason why I didn’t give up on blogging a few times. We have taken our blogging relationship to the next level and have gone through quite a few months of speaking every single day! We have even partnered on a 30 Day Blogging course that she dreamt up, put into action, and kindly brought me onboard. There are definitely a few more things in the pipeline for us going forward. So be sure to keep an eye out!
Amy and I don’t speak as much as I would like (because of the time difference and my crazy work schedule) but when we do, it is always such a blessing. We are worlds apart and living in different realities, but she is like a big sister to me. Her blog covers her rare medical condition, but she has such a positive air about her that does not make any sense!
Toni first reached out to me by email at a time when I was considering closing down my blog. The timing was so incredible that I will remember it forever! We don’t speak as much as we used to because our lives are pretty hectic. And we are in different time zones. But she is always giving her support in terms of views, likes, comments, promotion, etc. Her blog speaks to me because it is a quick hangout spot for young wives and moms trying to make it through.
Just to reiterate, there have been so many bloggers that have supported me through this journey, but it would be difficult to list each and every one of them. I will go back to highlighting my monthly favorites so that each blogger knows that they have a special place in my heart.
For now, my shoutout goes to Crispy Confessions – thanks for digging into my archives and reading most of the posts I wrote!
