This week my blog reached 100,000 hits. I've had this blog going for 3 years yet while the shop was open I only ever really posted little updates. When the shop closed early this year I decided to put a lot more into it and as we all know, what you put into something is what you get out of it. At the beginning of this year I thought it was a good idea to keep the blog going to promote the online store but I quickly realised the most popular posts were the ones where I decided to delve a little into the background of Turquoise Flamingo and my personal life too. In less than a year I've had 60,000 hits which I never thought would happen. I was shortlisted in four categories for the Blog Awards Ireland and it became the catalyst to start up another business.
Blogs are funny ol' things. Some days I don't feel like sharing too much of what's going on with me and other days I feel like writing my experience as a new mother, working from home or just general rambling. I try not to think about it too much. All I know is that I really enjoy it.
So I've decided to share the 5 most popular posts this year. Take a look.


Here's to the next 100,000.
