2015 was a big year here at Happy Healthy Mama. I grew more and faster than ever before, and this blog is not a baby. It was exciting and terrifying and fun all rolled into one. I have to say, I am proud of what I accomplished this year and I’m also proud of the delicious food that came out of my kitchen. This blogging adventure is ever-changing, and I love it. Let’s take a look back and see what was popular in 2015!
Read below to see which posts were the heavy hitters this year. I’m going to share which recipes and posts were most popular, both overall and just those written in 2015. It’s so interesting to see what resonates with people. Sometimes I know a post will be popular before I even write it (or at least I think I know…I’m sometimes wrong, but often right), and other times a post surprises me with its popularity.
1. 5-ingredient Blender Muffins-15 Ways (2014)
2. 2-ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes (2013)
3. Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Cups (2012)
5. Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls (2014)
6. Anti-Bloat Smoothie (2015)
8. Banana Oat Bars (2012)
9. Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal Cups (2015)
10. High Protein Energy Balls (2011)
I love this list because it really embodies what I’m trying to do. The recipes are quick and easy, simple recipes made with real, whole ingredients that are accessible. There’s also a natural living post in there that has been a huge change in our life this year (going paperless in our kitchen) and I’m happy others are interested in the idea.
It’s also interesting to study the flow of blog traffic. I focused on Pinterest a lot this year and the top 3 most viewed posts are indicative of that. Each of those three posts has been pinned over 100K times. Also, the blender muffins have taken the top spot two years in a row! (Here is the post with the top recipes from 2014)
Those are the top viewed posts on my site for 2015. Now let’s take a look at the top posts that were written in 2015. There will be some overlap since a few from 2015 made the top 10, but I’d love to show you which other recipes were popular this year.
It’s been a delicious year! I’m looking forward to 2016. Did your favorite recipe(s) make the list? What do you hope to see more of on Happy Healthy Mama in 2016? I love feedback!
