As the year winds down, Jasmine and I decided to put together a “Best of Purebebe” list for 2011. This list was generated based on the number of times readers viewed these articles during 2011.
Although we had planned to have a resolutions post done for 2011, we have simply run out of time with the holidays. So we’ll take a minute to share our Purebebe resolutions with you.
First, the really fun news…
This year we have seen a drastic increase in search engine traffic, mainly because we weren’t getting any love from search engines for the first year and a half that we were blogging (long story, but many thanks to Jasmine for figuring everything out and fixing the issue).
Next, the “what we’re working on” stuff…
One of our objectives for 2012 is to work on generating more comments from you – our readers. By the end of 2011, traffic to our site has more than quadrupled from what it was at the beginning of this year. And we are VERY happy about that! As you may or may not know, Jasmine and I currently don’t make any money from this site. We do a ton of research (research that we’d probably be doing anyways as parents) and publish that research and knowledge so that others can benefit from it. That being said, we’d like to hear from you more often (your thoughts, your ideas, your suggestions)! Please leave comments at the end of the posts, and if you try one of our recipes and like/don’t like it, please come back and let us know.
You can search for anything on our site in the search window, located in the right navigation panel on your screen, directly above “Recent Posts.” We also have a “Blog Archives” link at the top of this page, which allows you to search for articles based on topics.
If you are a new reader to Purebebe, welcome! And if you are one of our faithful readers who’s been with us for a while, well, we wouldn’t still be here doing what we’re doing without you.
