Quite frequently, as a blogger, I'm surprised to see what does - and doesn't - attract readers. It's not always predictable!
My top post of the year was a tribute to my Great-Grandfather, Samuel:
|Grandpa's Last Will & Testament|
Another surprise hit was about my Christian Faith:
|Orthodox Christian Icon Alphabet|
I fully expected this post to be popular - and it was. People tend to like tech tips : )
|How and Why I use Scheduled Posts on Blogger|
But these two were a total shock! Who knew that upcycling & reusing would interest so many people?
|Upcycling the Vinegar Jug|
|About that Coffee Cup|
My individual recipes seldom attract much attention on their own (although some of them are steady producers of hits), but my menus featuring them are a perennial favorite - as evidenced by FIVE super-popular menus this year. I guess people just love variety : )
|Winter Week Menu|
|Chinese New Year Week's Menu|
|Vegan Valentine Treats|
|Lenten & Omnivore Week's Menu|
|Mexican Week of Meals|
|Holy Week Menu|
And, Homeschooling Resources are often quite popular
|History & Geography Fun Homeschool Video Day|
|Rethinking Learning Styles|
|Math Homeschool Fun Video Day|
|English Homeschool Fun Video Day|
|Multiplication Quick Tricks Memory Song|
But, invariably, there's a post or two in a year that I EXPECT to be hugely popular that for some reason doesn't attract attention. In past years, those posts have turned out to be "late bloomers" - attracting little attention when first published, but later becoming hits. That's my hope for my "Stir & Pour Bread Variety" Series. I mean, seriously, who can pass up a homemade yeast bread variety that's easier to make than Just-Add-Water Pancakes? Time will tell, but here's hoping this one will "bloom" later!

I hope you have a Wonderful, Blessed 2018!
