2014 year-in-review. (In a nail-biter, Downton wins!!)

Just to tick me off, Google Analytics recently informed me that no one has ever read my blog, which is pretty interesting, because there are bunches of comments and sometimes WHOLE CONVERSATIONS that have taken place at the bottom of a post.  But whatever, Google.  Just because you own the internet doesn't mean you can rain on my particular parade.  You can kiss my big, fat, cellulite-laden  take a hike, metaphorically-speaking.

So what did people read?  (One can never REALLY know for sure, because many times it's just the Russians, looking for whatever it is that Russians look for.  Most of those backtracks involve the word "porn" somewhere in the url.  But I digress.)

Once again, the most-read post was Downton related. Apparently, y'all were just as excite as I was for the season opener!

The post with the best conversation EVER on my blog was after the death of Robin Williams.  While not a light-hearted topic, it was good to see folks talking.  After all, what is the internet for if not for sharing thoughts, ideas, and information?  (That, and the ability to use imdb to look up facts regarding the illustrious career of Johnny Whitaker.)

I'm always surprised when a post about teaching gets a lot of traffic.  Thanks for your support, peeps!

DL was once again popular, and he's slowly working through the pile of wood.

And of course, people wanted to read my fashion critique.

My home d├ęcor project with the most traffic was my guest room, which was my big project of the summer....

but I found it interesting that my most popular posts were not about decorating/DIY/house-related stuff at all!

Let's see what happens in 2015, shall we?

And you questioned whether you should continue with the Downton reviews. I think you have your answer!!! And I'm not surprised about the results. As much as I love your projects, I come here for the witty banter and insightful insights. And the laughs. And conversations!

Happy New Year, my friend!

You funny lady! I had a similar experience on Google analytics a month ago. WTF? I just read Brooke Shields auto-biography. I feel so much better about my relationship with my mother!
