Top Posts of 2013

2013 has come to a close, and I thought I’d share a round up of the top visited new posts on my site for the year. It’s always fun for me to see what was most viewed, and in case you missed some things that I shared, you can catch up! Last year I shared Top 12 posts in 2012, so I thought I’d share the Top 13 posts in 2013!  I’ve also got a little giveaway and link to my bloggy friends top posts of the year, below. It’s a great way to get to know some FAB bloggers, and their best posts!

Now, for my top 13:

Now I have to list a few of some other posts below. Though they weren’t created in 2013, they were HIGHLY visited in 2013. They even beat out a few of the top 13, so they had to be mentioned.

A few of my favorite posts that weren’t TOP (disadvantage being posted later in the year for some):

  4. Kristin I have to tell you how excited I am because I just got you “Say No to Auto” book today for my birthday! It’s been on my list for a year but the hubby didn’t get it for me until I actually had a DSLR (yes I wanted it before I even owned the appropriate camera). I’ve been reading your blog for years now and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it! I love learning tips and tricks from you and just hearing about your everyday life! I can’t wait to start reading your book!

    Happy New Year!

      Karyn, You are the sweetest! THanks for the note, and thanks for hanging around all these years! Yay for the book, and to better pictures!!!

  5. I am new to your blog, I am very glad to have found you in this hop. I am terrible at taking pictures- I can’t wait to ‘update’ you later in the year to tell you how much I improved from your posts. 🙂 Happy New Year!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Wonderful! THanks for commenting, Raine, it means a lot to me! I can’t wait for your update on the picture taking, too;)

  6. Marianne B. in AZ says:

    I enjoyed your post about choosing clothes to wear for a family photograph. Thank you for being a part of this fun hop and for your generous giveaway!

  7. Amanda Christensen says:

    Love this post! Those Vanilla Fudgy Brownies look incredible.

  8. Your Walt Disney World Tips post really was a key one for me this year. We are planning to take our family hopefully in 2014 (maybe ??) and it was nice to see someone who didn’t spend 2+ years to plan out every minute of the vacation.

    Cheers to a great 2014! Looking forward to it!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      OH yay, glad that was helpful! It really was last minute, and Facebook questions were very instrumental for sure! It’s a great resource!!

  9. Fudgy vanilla brownies? Are you kidding me?!? Those look amazing! I love the window turned photo frame, too 🙂 It was so fun to be part of this hop with you!

      Yeah, a.k.a. White Sheet Cake, but that title just doesn’t do it justice. Someone commented on the recipe that it didn’t have vanilla in it–ha! Well, it’s vanilla to me, even without the ingredient.

  10. I don’t think there’s a single post of yours that I’ve looked at, where I haven’t learned something. You are seriously soooo talented! Thanks for being such an inspiration!

  14. hanuman temple gutunr . govt atleast decided to arrest the culprits of the temple. if the govt, takes immediate steps , people remembers the timely action. All other temple in the dist. are all in the same line. some temple pujari (priest) WORKS ONE MOTH AND HIS TURNS COME AFTER THREE OR FOUR MONTHS.(DUE TO HEREDITARY) SO THAT THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED TO KEEP THE TEMPLES CLEAN AND NEATLY. EACH PRIEST WOKRS IN HIS OWN STYLE OF FUNCTION AND EVEN CELEBRATE IMPORTANT FESTIVALS HAS THEY LIKE IT.Due to this the devotees are disappointing who comes from far of distance palces.OUR SENIOR MOST MEMBER IE MLA HAILS FORM THIS DISTRICT
