Happy Blog-O-Versary!

Well, I MADE IT!  A year ago today, I launched Ma Petite Maison Verte with no real expectations, hoping that blogging might be a fun way to channel my love of writing and all things home.  I had no idea that my decision to blog daily for an entire year would have such an impact on my life.  I have sincerely enjoyed sharing experiences, recipes, tips, and crafts with my readers over the last 365 days.

I am delighted to have 60 followers of the blog as of today and 15,724 views as of the writing of this post!  I thought it might be interesting to share a few statistics and a photo collage that I created using a great website called ShapeCollage.com.  I didn’t include any of the grainy photos from the early months before I bought a digital camera — visit the archives for those!!

A few of my favorite images…

And now, for a few fun blog stats:

My most popular posts of all-time are: Apple Ramekin Mini Pies, Great Kitchen Tools: The Spider Skimmer, and Cake Pop Disaster.  Another post that is in the top ten or so that seems to get a lot of views is Homemade Yarn Bows.  I have been pleasantly surprised by all the messages I have received from bakers who have had a bit of trouble making cake pops too!

As you readers may know, I will be cutting back on my posting a bit after today.  I intend to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with an occasional weekend post thrown in.  I know that not blogging tomorrow will be an adjustment for me, because blogging has become a part of my daily routine.  I am also removing the post-a-day buttons from my home page, since I have reached my goal.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to all of my supporters, subscribers, and commenters.  I read each and every comment and rejoice in every “like” I receive.  I am very grateful to everyone who has visited my little piece of cyberspace so far — now onto another wonderful year!
