2014 – Recap

Here it is – the last day of December 2014. The last day of the year. New Year’s Eve. It’s been quite an eventful year for me. After much deliberation, I finally decided to start blogging. Yes, this one!  I’m really glad that I finally took the plunge and started to blog. I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I hope that you are too!

Although I’ve only been blogging since September, it feels as though I’ve already accomplished so much.  I learnt a lot from Blogging101, and also Photography101. Thanks, WordPress! I’ve made lovely blogging buddies, and also found an array of healthy recipes!

As this year comes to a close, I’m looking back at all that has happened, and would like to share my highlights with you.

My highlights for 2014, include:

My recipe for a chocolate Mug Cake, was re-blogged on Cassie Kelly’s blog, Soy-Free Soul:

Justine, from OddsnSods made my Matcha Smoothie recipe, and also featured it on her blog, along with her tasty adaptation:

I also received my first blogging award – ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’, which was kindly awarded to me by Terri Webster Schrandt:

I created new recipes and wrote my first (of hopefully many more to come) recipe book – ‘Cozy Gluten Free Christmas Recipes’

This week, WordPress also informed me that I’ve received 500 Likes!!  Wow!!  That is totally amazing!  I’m so glad that I’m doing something right! 😛

 

My goal, when I started my blog in September of this year, was to have 100 followers by the end of the year. On this very last day of December 2014, I currently have 103 followers!   Hooray!!!  Thank you so much!  I really appreciate you following my blog!  Do try some of my recipes, and remember to leave a comment – they are free!

I do like the fact that on WordPress, I can see which recipes were popular, and received the most ‘likes’. This is a list of the Top 5 recipes that you have fancied so far this year:
