Here’s a roundup of the most popular posts on Simplify, Live, Love during 2013! I was glad to find no giveaways listed in the Top 13 spots! I do enjoy giveaway posts – but it’s nice to know that content type posts are more popular.

A few the posts listed here were written during 2012 and were also the Most Popular Posts in 2012. So methinks I need to get busy writing some more killer posts – got any ideas for me? 😉 And some of these are just begging for a redo – prettier pictures etc.

    What a great idea! Did you choose top status by number of views or comments?? Just curious. I would have to do some sleuthing to figure out mine but I did do my top book list today! Does that count??? :-)http://bethannchiles.com/2013/12/30/whatcha-reading/

    I think it’s a hoot that a grammar post made the list, too! 🙂 I weeded out the popular posts from year’s past so I could highlight just those from 2013 – I figure all those others had a lot more years to gain views and I wanted to highlight just the past year. 🙂

    And I SO hear you about the photos that need to be redone…I’ve got quite a few buried in the archives I don’t want to see the light of day until I can update them, ha!

    Wishing you a Happy New Year, Michelle!

    I just discovered your blog, this is a terrific recap of the year. It makes me look forward to adding you to my reader. I learned many things from this post. I never knew you could dye eggs with koolaid, or that you could freeze avocados. The gutter garden is really genius, going to keep my eyes open for some salvage gutters. Thanks for such great writing.

    What a wonderful year, and such interesting topics you post on. I have got,GOT to try that queso dip with real cheese!

  6. blankLinda Kinsman says

    What a great list of posts! I am glad I finally stopped by from Instagram to “meet” you. Happy New Year! I now want to see what my top posts of 2013 were… bet there will be a giveaway or two because I fizzled out on writing around September.

    I, too, love that your grammar post was in the top of the year! It drives me nuts when bloggers make awful grammar errors, even more so when they don’t learn from them. I look forward to seeing more in 2014!
