A recap of my most popular posts from February 2015.
This month (February) I added a most pinned widget to the header of my blog. I must say, it's pretty cool. Blogger doesn't have an already prepared widget so I had to look through Pinterest, find my most pinned pictures, then write the html for this widget. I used many different websites to get instructions to put it together and whenever I had a question I just googled it. I'm super excited about my results and it seems to be useful. The goal is to keep visitors interested and on my site longer (once I get better with analytics I'll let you know if it's working). Most importantly I love the way it looks and I'm proud I made it myself.
I'm still posting to link parties regularly and to google+, facebook, and twitter. I'm gaining followers on all platforms and my page views are increasing. I'll never know everything about blogging, it changes so much, but I'm getting more familiar with many aspects. Most importantly I'm still having fun.
