So, now that I've officially been around for an entire calendar year, I thought I'd do one of those round-up posts I see so often.
I feel like I've arrived!
In all seriousness, this year has been awesome. I started off not knowing what the heck I was doing and just in the last eight months or so I feel like I've grown leaps and bounds as a blogger. In the past year I've found my voice. I've found so many other great blogs that I read every day. I've made blogger friendships with people I hope to meet some day. I am more sure now than ever that this is what I want to be doing.
So let's take a look back, shall we? First up, the top nine from a statistical perspective. Here are the top viewed posts to date:
I'm proud of everything I make, but these are, in fact, some of the ones I'm most proud of. Why? Because a few of them were my own recipes, and the others were ones that I changed a great deal. It also happens that these were all recipes that were featured by one of the linky parties I joined, so thanks so much to all you hosts out there!
While my favorites from the year are definitely represented in that collection, here are a few that didn't statistically make it to the top, but are ones I love just as much:
You know what is curiously missing from this list? Pie. Crust. My passion.
Which is why in 2012 I am going to (try) to focus more on Crust. My goal is to give every treat I love some of the crunchy good stuff. I've got a few recipes saved you'll flip for. Be sure to stay tuned.
Thank you all for making 2011 such a great year. Let's hope 2012 is even better!
Happy New Year everyone! I'll see you next year, with some great new recipes.
