Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season spent enjoying great food, fun events, and time with friends and family. With the hanging of  a shiny, new calendar, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my blog and some of  its highlights since I started it 8 months ago.

Here is a roundup of 2010 that I received from my blog host, WordPress.  I found it to be very interesting and encouraging. My favorite post is still the very first one that I wrote for KristinPotPie and it remains the most viewed still today! How very gratifying to me! Thank you all for reading – I really couldn’t have done it with out you!

Here’s to many more adventures together in 2011  – maybe even the piece on Pot Pies (and how the name KristinPotPie came to be) that many of you have asked for 🙂

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how I did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of my overall blog health:

Healthy blog!
