We tend to reflect when the calendar turns over to another new year. This year has been an interesting one for us - in our regular life - and in our blogging.
We don't often talk about the business end of things, but this year was a stinker and a rose. The stinker was being fleeced 6 months worth of ad revenue when our main ad company
Writing here has never really been about the money for us - we really, truly love sharing ideas to help other families do more with their money - but being taken advantage of was a bit of a punch in the gut. We felt cheated and discouraged and found it hard to write and share.
The rose! That terrible experience lead to us joining an amazing network who are supportive, professional and proactive. Joining them has helped us to get inspired to write and share with you all here. Heck, we even started a newsletter!
We thought it would be fun to cap off the year with a recap of what readers like you read most on our blog. There's a real variety here! Which speaks to the variety of topics we share about - our real life and projects - all with a spending-smart viewpoint.
We've got 2 lists here. The first is the ten most-read posts of the year - regardless of when they were written. The second is the ten most popular posts that we penned in 2016.
Thank-you so much for spending some time here with us! We know your time is important and we try hard to respect it. We hope our posts give you ideas to spend your money and time the best way possible - and entertain you at the same time. Without your visits and comments, we would have given up this little blog a long time ago - so thanks for your encouragement!
