It has become fairly customary amongst bloggers to offer a New Year round up post. These posts tend to recap what happened during the year and thank the visitors to blogs across the globe. I don’t normally do a round up post, but I did one a couple of years ago, in fact looking back it was in 2013 for the year 2012 so a bit more than a couple of years ago now! I listed every person who commented on my blog posts and linked back to their own blogs. Having just revisited that post and clicked the links I am horrified at how many no longer have blogs! And it’s a lot of broken links to fix!
Anyway, this year my New Year round up is going to be slightly different. It’s so important to let your readers know how valued they are, and especially those who take the time to leave a comment. So I would like to offer you all a free gift from me to say thank you for your commitment to my blog over the past year. Leave me a message below this post and I will give you free access to my blogging guide, it gives you all the information I have gleaned from over 7 years of blogging effectively.
During 2015 I wrote 47 posts and had over 300 comments during the year. My most popular post was ‘Want More Visitors? Run Your Own Challenge‘, which has 69 comments. You can read it by clicking the link. The whole concept of running blog challenges to inspire other bloggers and create a community that helps and supports each other was something you all loved to read about! I hope some of you took the opportunity to run your own challenge and please leave a comment and tell me how it went for you.
During this coming year I will be participating in more challenges and also have plans to run another, different, challenge. Watch this space! The challenges are open to everyone so look out for news of when you can join in!
Enjoy the journey!
