I can’t believe that 2014 is just a few days away! Seriously, 2013 has just flown by. It has been a wonderful year full of lots of ups and downs, growth and changes.
This time of year, I like to look back and evaluate what’s working well in my life, and what’s not. One of my favorite things to look back on is which blog posts were most popular in that year. It helps me understand what you enjoy reading, so I can bring you more content that you’ll enjoy.
If you’re a newer reader, it’s also a great way to give you some ideas on which articles you should read to get to know what Happy Mothering is all about. I can’t believe this is our 4th New Year around here! Thank you for being a part of the Happy Mothering community, and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
