Happy Monday everyone! I don’t know about you, but despite all of the weather related issues we had at the beginning of the holidays, they turned out to be lovely. And with temperatures plummeting to the high minus teens, it’s rather wonderful to have power back! I believe that now power has been restored to everyone in Toronto, thank goodness!
2013 was a year of change in a good way. I celebrated a benchmark birthday (I still can’t believe I’m THAT old!). My almost ten years of working with my dear friend came to an end and I decided to embark on a new career path in food! Little did I know that way back in 2007 when I began blogging it would eventually redirect my career path! I’m really pumped about 2014 and all of the opportunities it will bring! Happy New Year indeed!
As you WordPress users are already aware, WP sends us a synopsis of the stats at the end of every year. Even though i see my stats day to day, this synopsis still surprises me! My humble little blog was viewed 51,000 times in 2013, can you believe it! And for whatever reason December 24th garnered a healthy 728 views (I still can’t figure out why!). Here’s a quick review.
The five most popular posts were:
- Titanic Peaches in Chartreuse Jelly
- Quinoa Energy Bars
- Best Beef Tenderloin Ever
- Super Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes
- Titanic Dinner Party Invitations
The lovely ladies and gentlemen who were my top five commenters:
- Maria at A_Boleyn
- Sissi at With a Glass
- Norma at Garden to Wok
- Lorraine at Not Quite Nigella
- Charles at Five Euro Food
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and kind words, without you this blog would be a meaningless collection of recipes floating about in cyberspace. Thank you for you support and encouragement, I can’t express how much it means to me.
May 2014 bring you all joy, health and all the best wishes!
