cheers 2016 - More on MadeByMeggsDOTcome

I hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday, spending time with your loved ones. The last two weeks, I took “off” of posting and most of social media, in an effort to be more present with my family. There are so few opportunities to truly connect with your loved ones, and I hope that you make the most of these moments to do so!

Now that the holidays are over, and we are getting back in the swing of our regular routines, I wanted to share a bit of the past year with all of you. You see this coming February will mark my one year anniversary of blogging. And I am so excited to celebrate with all of you, since you are the reason I keep doing this. My little blog has turned into so much over the year, and I am excited to see where this next year will take us. I love seeing what posts from the blog become the most read, and I thought you might like to see a little behind the scenes. 

My top 5 posts of 2015, as it turned out, were mostly posts where I teamed up with some amazing people. This blog has opened up an opportunity to not only share my voice but also to showcase things that I have found along the way and have fallen in love with. Shops, products, and other parents who are in this blogging niche with me! Which makes what I am planning for my anniversary celebration that much cooler, because I am teaming up with SO many of my “online friends” to bring you something amazing!! (Just wait!!!)

Top 5 Blog Posts of 2015

Liebster+Award+--+Discover+New+Blogs+--+A+Dash+of+Salter3 – Nomination for Leibster Award

This was my first award nomination, which I soon discovered was a way for newbie bloggers to link up and gain new fans. Which I did via 3 nominations in the same month. What I also got was a Blogger Bestie, Cheree was the first to nominate me & we have become close online friends since.

lunch square4 – Replay Recycled Tableware

This review came about because I love their products. Everything from the quality, to the fact that they are made in the USA. You can’t beat that! My kids love using all of their products – which will lead to more posts in the future (with giveaways) so stay tuned!

85 – Silly Sandwich Printable

This was my first DIY kids activity post. Which I showcased what I did with a free ALEX Toys printable from their blog. Frankly, I am surprised to see it on the list! But I am grateful, since ALEX Toys was very supportive and interested when it posted. And I love when I share something and the company recognizes it!
