Top 10 of 2013

While I was going through old post for the Review Extravaganza (who's winners will be announced Thursday) I saw my Top Ten post and definitely wanted to do it again this year.  So here are some top 10 of 2013.

My top ten posts helped reinforce the importance of Pinterst as every single one of these posts was something "pinnable".  At first I thought the birthday post might have been the anomaly - but then I realized I had pinned the picture of the the cake I made for Ryder, which has been repined a lot.  Though not totally sure about the Happies and Crappies post- guessing the pictures of my kids.

Top Reffering Sites
 1. Pinterest
 2. Google
 3. Stumble Upon
 4. Mobile Pinterest
 5. www.pinterest.com (so yes seems the same as the first, but ranks it separate)
 6. Facebook
 7. www.thetaylor-house.com  (this site I submitted my Grandkids Picture Sign for a Christmas gift round-up post)

Where does most of your blog traffic come form? 


  1. I'd like to know what my top 10 posts were for 2013. Very cool that you did this!!

    1. Yes it was fun, it took a bit to figure out as there was no “year filter” (and my top ten overall are not my top 10 grin 2013) but it is fun to see.

  2. That's cool. I still love your school lunch idea post!

    1. Thanks! It is quickly climbing to a top ten of all time

  3. Pinterest is my top referral too which tells me that I need to get better at making pinable images. I loved the lunch box ideas, I'm already sick of making lunches and my poor daughter ends up with the same few things every week.

    1. Yes it is so easy to get in a rut with lunches- I often refer back to that post myself as even I forget and start doing the same things.

  4. China and Ukraine! How cools is that?

    1. Yes China was a new one to the list this year- at least as high as it was

  5. Very cool! Very fun! I remember all of those posts too and love pinterest, though I haven't been on much lately. I blame my very cute and busy 15 month old. I'm sure I'll get on more when he's a little more self-contained! :)

    1. Yes 15 month olds do like to take a lot of time :)

  6. I still need to look up where most of my blog traffic came from last year, but I know Pinterest is a big source for me now! I remember the broccoli salad post - I pinned it!

    1. Thank you for pinning it! It is definitely a favorite recipe
