2012 in Review

Leave a comment

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for our blog. Isn’t that cool?

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Reading their report got me thinking about our year-end, and some of the highlights of 2012. Besides starting our very first blog that had over 1000 views (WOO HOO!), we celebrated 18 years as a shoppe. That’s a really long time! I could have raised a kid in that time… oh wait, I did!

Another thing that stuck out in my mind was the wild popularity of metal art this year. Both indoor and outdoor art flew out the door all year long. I could barely keep up!

We had quite a few sales and events this year, but by far, our most popular was our first ever Black Friday/Small Business Saturday Facebook coupon for 50% off one item! It was a huge hit! We’re so glad that many of our loyal customers and Facebook fans could find a deal for Christmas.

Speaking of Facebook, 2012 brought hundreds of new fans, literally! As of right now, we have 419 fans of the shoppe. That’s over a hundred more than in 2011. I really enjoy sharing photos from the shoppe with all of our fans and being able to communicate about specials, changes in hours and general decorating info. I hope you’re enjoying it too! I look forward to what 2013 will bring! If there’s anything you’d like to see more of on Facebook, on the blog, or in the shoppe for that matter… just leave a comment!

Another year on the books, and another one on the way! What a blessing to be able to help amazing customers make their houses into homes every day!

See ya next year!
