Happy New Year to you all!! With the end of the year comes all of the typical year in review posts, and I thought I’d join in!
It’s interesting to go back and see what were the most popular posts of the year by the readers, as well as to review what my own favorite posts were from the year. So I’ll list both 😀
#1 – This seemed to really resonate as many people are turning back to greens for health reasons, yet didn’t know how to preserve them. You can also dehydrate them!
#2 – My heart truly is in teaching our kids to be self-sufficient, prepared, and have all of the knowledge to help them succeed in their lives. This must resonate with everyone else, as well.
#4: This article was a big hit, and it honestly surprised me, but I think a lot of women are wanting to be more preparedness minded and just needed a little push in the right direction on how to do it without looking like Rambo 🙂
#5 I think this was a big hit because this was a show that America ‘got’. It wasn’t about a bunch of preppers who were deemed weird, but an actual idea of what ‘might’ happen if things were to go bad, and it began to awaken them to what they needed to do.
#6 I write these ‘homemaking how-to’ posts because I feel it’s important for us to get back to our roots, to be less reliant on what we can get on the grocer’s shelves, and learn how to make do when things aren’t readily available.
#7 Taking advantage of sales and coupons and plan can make all the difference in the world on your budget and your preparedness. This series makes it to the top 13 because everyone is trying to learn how to save and how to prepare.
#8 When our kids are away from us, many of us feel the need to make sure they are as prepared as possible – thus the popularity of this post:
#9 My biggest goal for 2014 is to learn to can. Here is a collection of all types of food and how to can them.
#10 This is one of my favorite tricks to using up greens without having to buy protein powders for food. I add it to EVERYTHING!
#11 Who knew how our little games as children really prepare us for down the road?
#12 This one really surprised me!
#13 This one didn’t surprise me, and for only being a couple of week’s old, definitely has been a huge hit.
My Favs: Here are some blog posts that didn’t quite make the top thirteen, but are dear to my heart:
What posts did you find inspiration from?
Thank you, all, for your support over this year as we’ve all jumped into this adventure. May next year bring us peace, continued prosperity, and love from our friends and family, and may we never ever ever have to use our preps 🙂
