back at ya, 2012 (+ survey + giveaway)

This year was big for Trusty Chucks–here’s some numbers for you:

-I did my first (super-scary) outfit post on January 21st.

-My most viewed posts, hands down, are always outfit ones.  The five most popular ones I’ve done this year were Two Birds with One Stone, Pastels & Happy Clouds, The Black Maxi, Green Skinnies and the End of Teaching, and Pigeon Toed & Polka Dots.

-Pinterest went a little crazy for this post: pictures from this simple, yet cozy outfit have been repinned over 200 times.  That makes me giggle.  And then sweat a little.  But mostly giggle.

-The only non-outfit related post that got the same amount of traffic as the above posts is Come on Over, a tour of the inside of our house. (part two here.)

-The most commented post was Pigeon Toed & Polka Dots where I’m actually pretty grouchy.  Maybe that’s why so many people chimed in.

-Carly at Texas Lovebirds and I started copycat linkup and have been having lots of fun with it.

-I did a series on money and it started some great conversations. 

-I got to attend The Influence Conference where I met some amazing people, learned about this blogging business, and got involved in some amazing new adventures.

I’m thankful that people continue to come here to read my words and know about our lives.  Sometimes I still find that funny: that people come back here.  That’s very humbling.  Thank you.

For 2013: what would you like to see more of?  What questions do you have for me?  My brother is trying to convince me to do a vlog post, but I am pretty set against it–thoughts?  Would you mind taking a second and filling out this survey–you don’t have to leave your name and it will only take a minute or two tops, I’d just like to know what you’d like to see more of, what you don’t like to see (don’t say my face…), what you’d like me to write about, and any ideas or suggestions you have.  I’m not going to pretend every topic I write about comes from my own ideas, I have some pretty awesome friends and readers that ask questions, suggest topics, or tell me stories that inspire my writing.  So if you wouldn’t mind–tell me what you think! (And as a thank-you, I’ll select one person to send a Thirty One bag [obviously, you'll have to leave your name if you want to win, but participation in the giveaway is optional].)

Take the survey here!

    So I was going to do the survey for you, but the link isn’t working for me. I love reading your blog and like your open and honest real life posts. I was going to say that the one thing I didn’t want to see was your face, but since you said not to, I won’t.

    Happy New Year Mary! :-) Ballard
