2014 recap

We’re now 2 weeks into the new year and I’ve been completely neglecting this little blog of mine.

Why? I’m still soaking in the unplugged time I enjoyed while in England with the Hubs over the holidays (but I did plug in from time to time to load a few pictures to Instagram – follow the hashtag #JandJsBritishHoliday – I promise to post about the trip soon!).

And, frankly, it’s been tough getting back into the swing of things.

But, I’m back! And I want to wish you a very happy new year! I hope yours is off to a great start!

Over the hiatus, I received an email from WordPress with a link to my blog’s “annual report” which sounded super fancy so I was excited to get home and dig in!


As a data nerd, it may be a shock that I don’t regularly track my site’s statistics. To be honest, this blog is a creative outlet for me and I try not to worry about who’s reading it because I figured the incredibly low number would probably depress me 😉 Let me also be honest and say that for those of you who read it: it really means the world to me that you care what I have to say in my little corner of the internet and I’m so happy to have you here!

All that being said, I was pleasantly surprised with the stats in the report!

So what did it say?

  • In 2014, this little blog of mine was viewed around 3,400 times! WOW! Thank YOU for being a part of that number!
  • Visitors landed here mostly through Facebook and Twitter – which should be no surprise because I do love my social media 😉
  • Those visitors were from 68 countries (WOW!).
  • My post about My Mission to Live Small received the most comments (yay for Tiny Living!).

Below are my top 5 posts in 2014:

1. Vegan & Raw on Main Street – they’ve since added Sunday brunch to the menu!

2. Noodlehead Super Tote – which I’m happy to report I still carry to work daily. 

3. Vintage Charlotte – I can’t wait to go back! 

4. My First Blog Post – a great place to learn more about the vision I had for this blog in the beginning (and have tried to stick with!). 

5. Thrifted Thursday: Sailor Skirt – I’m hoping to do more refashions this year so stay tuned!

Which one is your favorite?

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
