I can’t quite believe 2017 is almost over. Part of this year went so slowly (i.e the entire 4 months that Harper was in plaster cast from her armpits to both her ankles), but once her cast was off the rest of the year seemed to go as fast as the speed of light, but not quite as that’s impossible.
The day that I publish this is actually the 1 year anniversary of my first ever blog post. I’m amazed at what I’ve built-in only a year with zero blogging knowledge. I’ve loved sharing reviews and our stories throughout the year, as well as my comping tips, trick and wins. I’m aiming to continue this throughout 2018!
With that in mind I thought I’d share my top 10 most viewed posts here at Glam & Geeky Mum for 2017.
This day was one of the highlights of my 2017. I cannot say that living with a child in plaster cast from armpits to ankles for 4 months was easy but I am proud that we got through it and made it out the other side.
A very popular blog post with a lot of traffic coming from search engines for this post. I’ve done many more blog posts about makeup and skin care as my current tim restrictions usually means I can only get one post out a week. I think moving on to 2018 if I can find more time for blogging I’d like to do a few more posts like this.
A post all about my foray into the world of matched betting. I should actually update this at some point as I took a break from earlier this year to concentrate more on my blog and comping. I think this has remained popular because it’s quite a highly googled subject.
If I actually added up all of the views from my prize unboxing blog posts then this would be sitting at Number 1. I decided to however keep them as separate blog posts for this list. You an view all of my prize-winning blog posts by clicking the title link – but if you want to see my most read then you can skip straight to the March 2017 post here. It’s not even my most successful month but for whatever unknown reason it’s the most read.
A super popular post rounding up all the best tips from the other comping bloggers out there was well as lots of hints and tips myself. December 2017 was my best comping Christmas yet where I won a total of 16 advent competitions (as well as a very decent set of wins from regular competitions too)
The last part of my blog series all about how to find low entry competitions. I’m surprised this is the least read of the three tutorials, but I do realise for some that Tweetdeck can feel like the equivalent of solving a Rubix cube with your eyes shut. My quick and simple tutorial covered everything you needed to know to get going with Tweetdeck
One of my earlier blog posts, and one that I’m still very proud off. The gaming community have loved reading about Chase’s story and I have lot’s of people still frequently read this blog post. We also launched our YouTube Gaming channel ‘Everybody’s Gaming‘ which we’re hoping to have back on track next year – as soon as Harper learns that she’s not allowed to pull out every single cable she see’s on sight…
3. Blog Giveaways
No link here as I don’t currently have a blog competition running, but they were very successful with lots of you entering. Last year I ran three blog giveaways and I’m hoping to double that at least for 2018!
The second in my series in how to find low entry competitions. Twitter lists are not so difficult when you know how they work!
The first in my blog series in how to find low entry competitions is also my most viewed post on the site. This quick guide gives the absolute basics of how to navigate your way round pretty much any search engine to find exactly what you’re looking for. I’m hoping to follow this up next year with a blog post dedicated to my personal favourite searches to find low entry competitions.
So there you have it, my top 10 most read posts of 2017. A massive huge Thank you to all of my readers over the last year. I am so grateful for every single view on my blog, and I hope to see you all in 2018!
