10 Most Popular Posts of 2013


I’m always fascinated to see which posts are popular and which aren’t. Sometimes I’ll write a post that I think is going to get a lot of love and instead, it falls flat. Other times, something I write something quickly or without much thought and it’s a hit. Proof that nearly two years in to this blogging adventure, I still have no clue what the hell I’m doing.

10 most popular posts

Here are my most popular posts from 2013:

1. 9 Ways to Wear a Maxi Dress this Fall – The proof is in the Pinterest. This was repinned hundreds (thousands? I’m not really sure) of times and brought over 38,000 hits to Back East Blonde.

2. Blueprint Cleanse Review – Evidently the BluePrint Cleanse is something people Google a lot. Search engine traffic accounts for most of this. Still, I think it’s one of the more honest accounts of any cleanse or diet that I’ve read. That’s code for “I suck at dieting and half-assed it” and then admitted it on the interwebs.

3. Those Mormons – Big thanks to the LDS ladies of the blog world. We love you.

4. Why I Left California – Exactly what it sounds like. I’m Back East. Here’s the why.

5. Dear Baby Kimye – Let’s just call “this the one I should have bet money on”. Yes, you heard little North West’s name here first, where I sarcastically predicted it. I’ll just be over here patting myself on the back for this. Although really, with those parents what did we expect?

6. How Pinterest Ruined Weddings – Step away from the mason jars and the burlap.

7. How to Successfully Live With Your Boyfriend – A year and a half later, it’s going swimmingly. Here’s my best advice.

8. It’s Just A Blog – Blogs are a lot of things but they aren’t everything. I’m always trying to keep it in perspective.

9. I Categorize You – Mommy bloggers. Twenty-something bloggers. Mormon fashion bloggers. I categorize you.

10. How to Use Buffer for Your Blog – This is still the best tool I’ve ever found for managing social sharing and blog sponsorship commitments. I love you, Buffer. Thanks for being so awesome (and free!).

Most Popular Guest Post:

How to Get into Running if you Hate Running – An awesome guest post by Bri from Back to Bliss! Bri, anytime you want to come back to write part two, you are more than welcome.

    The universal updater used by software manufacturers, would likely accept an insurance governing
    how the device should be used. Some adamantly claim that they cannot possibly improve system performance.
