This year has been really busy for me. I love blogging so much that I decided to dedicate more time to it in the hopes that someday this could be a full time job. I am not up to that point just yet, but Nourished Simply is certainly grown it’s voice and reach this year. I made a list of all my posts from this year. I really didn’t think I posted that many recipes, but to my surprise I posted over 50 recipes this year.
Fifty to many blogger isn’t much at all, but to me I think it’s great considering that blogging is not my full time job. I work part time (24 hours per week) with a bariatric surgery practice and work part time(16-20 hours per week) as an online health coach for VIDA Health. Plus I am a mom to two older children that have homework and after school activities.
My goal this year was to also do a better job at promoting my posts. I love Pinterest and Instagram, so have focused on those two platforms for the past 6 months or so. I do use twitter, but don’t spend a whole lot of time there. I completely abandoned Google +.
Most of my posts that included recipes were shared at least 100 times, but many were shared even more than that. I rounded up today the 10 Most Popular Recipe Posts of 2015 that were shared on different social media channels.
