This year has been such a great one, and not simply because of all my favorite posts. It been a pleasure to see this site continue to grow, to make wonderful friends, and to challenge myself further creatively.

Without contest, however, the highlight of the year was launching the Business of Blogging e-course. And I am beyond excited for the ways it will be growing in 2013. This year could also be dubbed the Year of Pinterest (or so my Facebook feed would suggest).  It has totally changed the way folks in our industry work, but it has been a blast interacting a collaborating with people in a whole new medium.

I also launched a new business/freelance series here on the blog, that coincided with my acceptance of the editorial director position on the Alt Summit blog. I have many more tips about blogging full-time, crafting and other thoughts to share this coming year.

I cannot wait to show you some of the new series, contributors, and really fun things I have planned for 2013… Here we go friends! Thank you so much for being a part of this last year. You are a treasure to me. xoxo
