2012 Bloggy Best and Brightest Linky

I'm linking up with Christina, from Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge!  She is currently hosting a linky to share (brag about) your blog's best and brightest moments from the year 2012 as well as brag about other fellow bloggers. 

I only began blogging this past October, but I would still like to share my best and brightest moments from the past 3 months with you.  I will share a couple of my most popular posts.  I will also brag about one fellow blogger that has really helped to welcome me into the blogging world.

--More Than Math by Mo's Popular Posts--

This was my very first linky party that I participated in and by far my most popular post so far.  I linked up with Freebielicious to share one of my forever freebies.  Compound Word Cone Creations is the free product that I shared.  It is a 13 page activity set with printables.  I am very proud of how this product turned out and completely shocked at the number of times it was downloaded!!  Click on the picture below to get your free copy from my TpT store.

My second most popular post was about the Leibster Blog Award.  The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  It is to show new bloggers that they are appreciated and also to help spread the word about new blogs.  I was honored (and thankful) to be nominated by Kristin Wynegar for this award.  I like this post because you learn a little bit about the person behind the blog from the information shared on the post.  I had to list 11 random things about myself, as well as answer 11 questions that Kristin created for me.  At the time of the post I had only 2 followers and now I am up to 23 followers.  Although it is slower than I had expected, it is very encouraging to know that people are actually interested in the information I share and products I create.  With that said, please feel free to hop on over to visit my blog anytime.  If you like what you see, I would love to have you as a follower.  My blog will keep you updated on new products I create, sales that I run at TpT, tips from my classroom, and every Friday I share a new FREEBIE with my followers.  Click on the picture below to visit my blog.  :)

This post was my third most popular this past year.  This particular Friday was special not only because it was my weekly FREEBIE Friday, but also because I released my Christmas ABC Order FREEBIE.  Ever since I opened my TpT store this past September and begain selling my products, I have created a holiday/seasonal ABC Order Cut and Paste Activity (these seem to be very popular)for each holiday.  This post let my followers know that the Christmas one had just been uploaded to my TpT store. Click on the picture below if you would like to download this activity.

I appreciate and enjoy any feedback that my customers/followers give me and these holiday/seasonal ABC Order Cut and Paste Activities have gotten tons of positive feedback.  Needless to say I am very proud of these activities I created and because of the positive feedback I have made a commitment to offer a different one for every holiday/season (at the least I will offer a new one once a month) from here on out!  **ALERT, ALERT--check my blog this Friday if you like these activities-hint, hint-Christmas is over and Winter & Snow is next on the list! ;)

Thanks for allowing me to brag about myself but before I end this post I would like to brag about a fellow blogger who has been tremendously helpful and welcoming the past few months as I began my blogging adventure!

The one and only School Supply Addict, Ms. Ashley Hughes has been a tremendous help these past few months and I cannot thank her enough!  Not only does she create wonderful clipart that makes my life easier when creating products, but she is also very helpful in giving me great feedback about my TpT store and blog.  Her blog is a must see for anybody in the world of education.  Click on her button below to check it out for yourself.

What a fun way ro reminisce on 2012 (well 3 months of it anyway)! If you would like to link up and share your best moments from 2012, simply click on the picture at the beginning of this post.
