I had more readers in 2013 than ever before, and I am so grateful for every person who stopped by to read a post or make a comment, and to those who shared Red Shutters with their friends and family. Thank you!
What do I know about you, my readers? I know that the vast majority of you hail from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. (This is when I start singing “Oh, Canada”–be lucky you’re not sitting next to me.)
I know that, other than coming directly to redshuttersblog.com (which many of you do), the top four sites that brought you Red Shutters are Facebook, Boston.com, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Red Shutters welcomed 103 (including this one!) posts in 2013, which meant I averaged about two posts a week. The day with the highest number of views was June 20 when this post, Our Summer Bucket List: Ice Cream, was discovered by you and other readers, proving, as I suspected, that everyone loves ice cream.
The posts you’ve read the most are:

- I forgot my son at school
- Getting Ready for Kindergarten: Back-to-School Tips (and a Giveaway!)
Nearly 800 of you follow me on Twitter and close to 200 of you like my fan page on Facebook. These numbers have grown a great deal in 2013, and I’m glad for the opportunity to be connected to you.
Most of all, thanks so much for reading, for encouraging, and for finding value in what I write and share here on Red Shutters.
Wishing you the best in 2014!
A happy accident of hostgator being down today on New Year’s Eve was that I got to discover new Twitter buddies. So happy I found Red Shutters and looking forward to reading more from your blog in the new year.
Have a very happy one!
