If you blog on WordPress, you are familiar with the annual report WordPress.com sends out at the end of the calendar year. The report gives you a nice snapshot of what you did with your blog over the course of the year.
Looking at my 2012 WordPress stats and those on Google Analytics, I am amazed at how much this blog has grown over just one year. My pageviews grew over 241% from 2011. A lot of the growth, I believe, has to do with consistency, – I blogged 248 times in 2012 – the power of social media, and commenting on other blogs.
Since it is National Thank You month, I wanted to take the time to thank you, my readers, for sticking with this blog.
I especially want to give a big shout out to my top 5 commenters on another jennifer for 2012. I read all of these amazing women’s blogs on a regular basis and encourage you to do so as well.

And since nobody gets handwritten letters anymore, I thought I would honor National Thank You Month by offering real thank you notes to my readers. Seriously. Just leave me your address in a comment or via email, and I’ll send you a real handwritten note. One that I will actually take the time to write with a pen. I have some cool notecards I can use, and I’ll even throw in an another jennifer magnet and sticker.
Because, you know what? Taking the time to show your appreciation is also a simple way to give back.
Who will you thank this month?
