I had this all worked out in my mind how I was going to write a Buzziversary blog this year, and then I got sick and January 4 came and went! Yes, as of January 4, 2014, I have been on Buzznet for SIX years! I am feeling rather accomplished, so I decided to go ahead and write a blog ten days late! I hope you don't mind! I am also going to include something that I have never talked about before! I am going to show you my stats, and here they are:
- Total Posts: 1,560
- Featured Posts: 839
- Comments on my posts: 35,900
- Buzz on my posts: 15,876
- Visits on my posts: 1,160,593
- Comments by me: 54,682
Most of the time I forget that we even have stats on our page! However, when I do occassionally check them out, they floor me! I have had 839 features and that is what I am most proud of! It proves to me that you like my photography, and my photography is the most important thing to me besides my precious family! Sometime during this past year, I surpassed over a million views! I think that is also something to be proud of! It makes me so very happy that people want to see what I post!
Along with my stats this year, I want to mention the groups that I have started or been an Admin to here on Buzznet! They are as follows: Buzznet Family Members, Buzznet Pets, A Story Behind Every Photo, Nature Lover's Photography, and the biggest group is, of course, Buzznet Storyteller's Group or BSTG as we like to call it! I share responsibility for the Buzznet Storyteller's Group with my co-admin Jane (janebecameinsane)! In addition to our regular posts and such, we have managed to do 39 assignments (and counting) where you members have told us your stories! What a honor that is! It is a lot of work for Jane and I from time to time, but reading everyone's stories make it all worthwhile! It has just been so great! I feel like my words don't do justice here! *shameless plug* If you are not a member of these groups or have forgotten to tag your posts to these groups, please do that now! (: It would make me ever so happy!
In that spirit, here are my favorite family and my favorite nature shots of the year!
I know I am not as talented or savy as all of you, but I truly appreciate with all of my heart each and every time you view, buzz, suggest, and most of all when you leave me a comment on my posts! I love my Buzznet Family so very much! You inspire me to be better and keep on going! I try to always let you know how important you are to me without sounding too sappy or creepy! I would love to write something individual and special to each of you, but that would require a book! Plus, I might get all hasty and forget someone and that would just be sad! So, I am only going to give one shoutout! Bestie, you know who you are! ( :
THANK YOU ALL FOR ANOTHER WONDERFUL YEAR
