Periodically, I like to touch base with my readers. I don’t want to continuously post things you aren’t interested in. Sometimes I’m wavering between what to post, and knowing what you’re interested in could make the difference. If you don’t see the options you want listed (i.e. parenting, coping with grief, encouraging messages, etc.), feel free to mention those to me. I’m very open to suggestions, and enjoy writing about a wide variety of topics. I’m just doing my check in with y’all to see which topics you would most like to see here.

Top Posts of 2015

2015 in review

It has been a year of change for my family.

There have been countless changes this year! We made a big move this spring. Our third child was born healthy and sweet in July, after a stressful couple of months of premature labor and followed by a prolonged recovery for me due to extreme blood loss. I had numerous injuries and sicknesses since then. There has just been a ton going on in our personal life, which I won’t bore y’all with.

For my faithful readers, I wanted to share the highlights from 2015 here at Penny Pinching Peach with y’all!

A pretty exciting thing was that my pregnancy announcement with my third child- Another Thanksgiving Blessing!- was featured on, as linked at the bottom of that post!

I am also a new contributor with Millennium Moms.

I added the option to follow me via Twitter and Pinterest, if you would like to follow now at the links on the side bar! Of course, I still have Facebook and the option to follow via emails. All of these venues have different neato additional content, such as giveaways & freebies I share and great content from my fellow bloggers.

It was very interesting seeing what you liked best this year, so I’m excited to share my top posts in different categories from this year! If you see something here that you really like, please do me a favor and share!! It would make me so happy!

2014 With My Blog

Just me. My little girl took this photo. :)

Just me. My little girl took this photo. 🙂

WordPress sends out a yearly review with interesting random facts about your blog, and I also researched a few things in my statistics because their review didn’t list them and made me curious. 🙂 If y’all wanna know about my year in the wonderful world of blogging, here’s a quick overview:

My top eight most viewed posts were:

Grandma's Sunday Special Ritz Cracker Chicken

Grandma’s Sunday Special Ritz Cracker Chicken

By the way, the post about my great-grandma’s Ritz cracker chicken was the number 2 post for 2013, barely dropping to number 4 a year and a half after it was first published! If that doesn’t convince you it’s a doggone good recipe, it has held a special place in the hearts and tummies of at least five generations I’ve personally witnessed gobbling it down in my family. Y’all miiiiiiight wanna try it! 😉

My most commented upon post, not surprisingly for me, was What Lung Cancer Can’t Do It wasn’t surprising for me because it was one of the most deeply heartfelt posts I wrote in this past year, and cancer touches so many lives.

My Facebook page was barely a blip until midway through 2014, when I finally actually started utilizing it for more than just auto-publishing my posts. I now also use my Facebook page to share related posts of interest, extra awesome deals I don’t want to flood my actual blog with, one day flash giveaways I stumble across and more. If you’re not a follower, it’s definitely worth becoming one! I limit my posts so that it doesn’t become too spammy, so no worries about my flooding your feed with a bunch of junk! 😉

Thanks to all of you who read, share and comment here at Penny Pinching Peach! You make this possible and worthwhile! Are there any topics or issues you’d like me to talk about this year? What kind of content would you like to see more of? Suggestions are welcome! Don’t forget, y’all matter! 🙂
