Happy New Year! 2014 was a year of hurdles, set-backs, growth, achievement, and enlightenment; thank you for being a part of that journey! I have some exciting projects to announce in 2015, and hope that you’ll continue along with me on this incredible ride. To ring in the new year, I’m highlighting some of my top posts from 2014. Without further adieu, here are my top eight posts of 2014:
I consider myself an aficionado on buying used cloth diapers, in the cloth diaper blogging world. I began cloth diapering by rounding out my stash with used diapers, and have continued to purchase used diapers throughout.
Sometimes you need a little humor to get you through the humdrum of long-term cloth diapering; this is one of those posts.
This guest post struck a chord with readers, as Sara, from Embrace My Space, shared her experience starting cloth diapering when her son was around six months old.
I have a great sense of humor in real life, but that doesn’t always translate into my writing; humor writing is difficult! However, I seem to have hit the mark with this humorous breastfeeding piece, that offended some, but gave many people a chuckle (or two).
The fourth most popular post of 2014 was this detailed (and very informative) guest post written by Jennifer Hill, owner of Re-Diaper.com. Re-Diaper is the retailer I buy used diapers, wipes, wet bags, etc. from, and each experience I’ve had has been amazing. If you’re tentative about purchasing diapers used, afraid of having a bad experience online, you should definitely give Re-Diaper a try, and buy used with confidence.
This post continues to do well, month after month; I guess a lot of women are interested in using menstrual cups! I don’t know what it means that my top posts of 2014 have to do with cloth diapering and women’s hygiene products, but I’ll roll with it!
I had a lot of fun shopping this past year, discovering unique gifts to give friends and family, so I decided to share some of my finds with you. This post was non-sponsored; I let companies know that they had been chosen after the post went live. I’m so glad people found it helpful, and I plan to keep my eyes open for fun and unique items to feature next year!
Can I get a drumroll, please? My most viewed post of 2014 is:
I had fun drafting this post, having had a year of sleep under my belt and able to find the humor in what was once a very difficult time. EVERY new parent has been through the newborn sleep deprivation, which is why this post probably did so well. Even if you’re currently living in a sleep deprived state, you can probably get at least one chuckle out of this piece!
I spent a lot of time researching and writing this piece, originally intended for publication, so it definitely merits a mention.
Thank you so much for being a part of 2014, I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings!
