Best of the Month May 2014:  A recap of my most popular posts from last month (May 2014)

No chocolate recipes this month but I am happy to see that every post (except the great idea thursdays) got 100 or more views and at least 1 comment, many have more.  The biggest contributor to this, I believe, is link parties.  I changed my link party strategy about 2 months ago.  I now try to post my links as soon as the party opens.  Before I was more lackadaisical and would just link up when ever I thought about it.  Now, thanks to some blogging tips I read, I have my favorite link parties and their start times on my google calendar and I get a notification when they are soon to start.  I'm still working on my social media presence but there is always room for improvement.

  1. I like the idea of the bean and rice taco salad. It's good to be reminded that meat is not mandatory for dinner. Thanks Joy!

  2. Thanks Julie. I agree and with the rice, beans, and avocado sour cream it was delicious. I didn't even miss meat...and my husband was happy too.
