A recap of my most popular posts from March 2015.
I implemented many new changes in March. They seem to be working too I have many more views than I had before.
Most importantly, I've started sharing my recipes/posts on Yummly. I believe that Yummly is bringing the most viewers to my blog. It quickly became my leading referral site.

I've started adding click to tweet bars to each post too. I don't see them tweeted all that much, but it's just another easy way for viewers to share my recipes. Along the social sharing line, I also added a new floating social share bar.
I've been making the most out of my link ups to link parties by tweeting them and this has seemed to bring me more twitter followers and a few more views.
I changed some og tags (open graph protocol) in my blog template HTML to make my site more facebook share friendly. I really have no idea if that is making any difference in my views, but I feel good that it's done.
Lastly, I started adding a search description to each post. On blogger, it's at the right under 'Post settings' in the post editor. This is another thing I don't know if it's making a difference or not but I was surfing the web/blog info and saw that I should be doing it and I had not been. Now I am.
Overall, I am always tweaking my blog and I believe this is something I will always do because the blog world is constantly changing. Whether it increases my views or not I feel good about trying to make my blog better.
