Sound The Party Horns!

January 15th is a monumental day my readers.

Five years ago this week, I started this little blog.

(vintage Shot of Brandi header)

Reading back on my past posts, not a lot has changed. I still love Sharpies. I still love polar bears and cupcakes.

I guess a few things have changed – I learned how to add hyperlinks to my blog posts, I moved cities, I now have more than 700 unique readers (in total – not monthly)

So in the last five years, what were the top five Shot of Brandi* posts? Here they are readers:

5. Poppin Bottles – My first VLOG! I hear that the readers like the videos! I may need to add more. I think they just like reader Lindsay!

4. Election Day: 2008 – the recap from attending the election night rally in Chicago

3. Happy Hallow Brady Birth Steelers Rule Election – one of the more longer titles, I think Brady has a little Shot of Brandi fan club that increases blog readership! Maybe we can get him to become a contributor.  

2. Push it Real Good: This one is all thanks to Reader Lauren – one of my loyal readers from the start. She posted a link to Shot of Brandi on Facebook and I got a ton of new readers! THANKS LAUR!! And hi new readers!

1.      My 101 in 1001. I think people were checking in on my list ; )

I want to thank all of you for reading my blog, emailing me ideas, sending me private emails about posts and pictures of crafts that I’ve inspired you to make. I really do this as a hobby to capture things I like to talk about and knowing that some of you look forward to my posts keeps me going. So seriously – THANK YOU.

Here’s to five more (and many more after that) years!
