2014 Traffic Report: Most Popular Posts

Bloggers dig this stuff. So bear with me as I dig around in my blog’s Google Anaytics for 2014 …

Top 5 Most Popular Posts of 2014

1. Hot Cars Kill: 5 Low-Tech Ways of Remembering Your Child in the Backseat of Your Car

This post brought, by far, the greatest number of visitors to the blog this year (25,500+). It’s intended to be an educational post. At its core, though, it comes from a place of sadness. I wrote it thinking of the grief and gut-wrenching anguish of parents who have lost a child by accidentally leaving him/her in the car. I can’t really even bring myself to think of what the child experiences.

2. Makeup Primer, Arbonne, and My Cosmetics Quest

The Arbonne consultants really came out of the woodwork to blast me on this one. Granted, I didn’t blow rainbows on Arbonne’s ingredient list, but I thought it was (and still think it is) a balanced review. This post was written in 2012 and the fact that it still consistently brings in traffic tells me that many a consumer is trying to find out more about Arbonne.

3. My Cosmetics Quest: Favourite Shampoo and Conditioner Brands

This collection of safer shampoo and conditioners still stands. I wrote this in 2013 and we still use these products regularly. I especially love the Giovanni 3-in-1 (shampoo, body wash, and bubble bath) in pink grapefruit scent. The smell is so fresh and awesome! I use it on my son in his baths but also bring it to the pool for after-swim-lesson-showers.

4. A Latte for $2. Need I Say More?

This was a sponsored post from 2011. Tim Hortons was launching espresso-based coffees, including lattes, for the ultra cheap price of $2. I helped spread the word and was also able to give away two $25 gift certificates out to readers. I love when I get to give stuff to readers!

5. A Trip to Acray Campground in Algonquin Park

This is another one from way back in 2011. I love that people still love this post. It’s all about our family’s (now) most favourite camping spot. It shares little tidbits about keeping the kids happy and busy, as well what to eat beyond hotdogs and baked beans.
