2015 - Blogging Year in Review!

So yesterday, I brought you my Running Year in Review!  This time, check out my Blogging Year in Review.  And always, don't forget to link up with me and Dani!  You can add your Year in Review link to the link up at the end of the post!

60 Giveaways

Wowee!  Thanks to very generous sponsors, I have had some fun giveaways this year!  Some of my favorites are pictured below!

17 Ambassadorships

I have to name them all and thank them all for a fantastic year full of support, encouragement and amazing products!  SpanditsMedi-DyneFitFluentialFitApproachRevel Marathon SeriesRock n Roll SeriesOrange MudSuperfeetSkratchPony Express MarathonShowerpillprAnaMovin ShoesHeadsweatsPluggz FootwearGone for a Run and Nuttzo!

I have also enjoyed very special partnerships with VegaProCompressionAthleta UTCBzees and Hoka One One.

My Most Read Overall Post

By far, and I was pretty surprised, my most popular post was the OOFOS Review & Giveaway.  It had almost 1000 more views than the nearest competitor.  They are amazing shoes and I am happy to see everyone else thought so too!

My Most Read Non-Giveaway Post

This one was surprising too!  My most popular post was on Why I LOVE Newport Beach!  Maybe my nostalgia for my college days shined through the post?  I know I certainly love Balboa Bars!

My favorite Post

Every once in a while, I go beyond product reviews and giveaways to give you a heartfelt post on my state of things.  And my response to the Zelle article that said No to Marathons was my favorite post ever.  I called the article "Yes Marathon for Me!  5 Reasons I am Opting In!"

My Favorite Linkup

It has to be the Wednesday Giveaway Roundup of course!  I am so thankful that Erica agreed to co-host with me this year and can't wait to see what the New Year brings.  Rumor has it there will be a new logo!

What is next in 2016?
I am definitely holding on to my little corner of the inter webs.  But I am not sure how much.  I will always be around for the Wednesday Giveaway Roundup and always over on Instagram rocking the cute Spandits skirts and the ProCompression socks but beyond that, I will have to see what the year will bring!
I do know that I have met some AMAZING people thanks to being a run blogger and I intend to enrich my garden of friends!  Love these people!
So there you have it.  My Blog year in Review.  Have you ever read my blog before?  What do you like about it  What would you change?  Be honest but not mean!  Can't wait to see what 2016 brings!

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
