The LadyBug Year In Review 2013

Dear friends,

As you very well know a few "moments" ago we passed into the New Year and as the New Year is always a moment of remembering and recalculating ones year of his/her life I believe it is normal that I shall do the same. This is not my first try-out as owner of a blog and I must admit last time I was not sure where and how I was going or who was following me or commenting me - if ever! But this year I have learned much more about that from my fellow bloggers. I have grown slowly but steady and I have made friends and found out blogs that are now very dear to me and I do not miss any of their post. When another door closes another one opens and so I began my journey with this blog and started telling you the stories of The LadyBug. On the 14th of June 2013 I did my very first post as The LadyBug :)

I can proudly say that since 14th June 2013 until this date I have over 30.400 views. My top 3 reffering sites are Facebook (of course, I am posting the links there on a daily basis... I have that even automated for my Facebook Page ;) ), Google and Bloglovin. The below printscreen was taken on the morning of 30th of December 2013 and as I have a daily count of at least 150 views (going up to 300 even, on good times) I believe it will not change much as my guests do not change that much ;) - here are the top countries that visit and the operating systems that they use:
This was a really fun and educational year when it comes to blogging and I hope I shall be sticking to this track :) Keeping my fingers crossed and wishing for an awesome New Year! 

Yours truly,
The LadyBug
