A shout out

WordPress sent to all bloggers a little wrap up of your 2012 Blogging Year in Review. It came with some fun facts like this one: 19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 100,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

It also told of best days (over 3,000 visitors in one day which is a few more than my average 300 visitors!), most popular posts {this onethis one, and this one} and it also lets you know who posted most comments on your blog.

Today I’d like to send a shout out to a particular few who I didn’t know at the start of this crazy blogging journey, but are people (and 4-legged friends) whose lives I now share.

It’s those top commenters I’d like to say a huge thank you to today. I love all of your blogs too friends, and although I sometimes find myself playing catch up rather than reading each and every day, I always check in to see what you’re up to. If you don’t already subscribe to these blogs, you should. Particularly if you’re a dog lover apparently!

Sage (with a little help from Mom); Cupcake and Genevievethe Misty Shores crew; Chuck and the Collies; DogDaz; and 2 Brown Dawgs! Last (but by no means least) Bassas Blog (Bassa dictates and the Tall Person writes). Exciting news from Tsilbi: they’ve published their own eBook. You can buy it here. I’m about half way through and it’s a great read!

I wonder what fun this year will hold for all of us? I’m looking forward to it unfolding and hoping every day is this much fun: sitting on  the kitchen bench, wearing fairy wings and licking the cake batter from the second of your 2nd birthday cakes.

yum yum

Does it get any better?
