Recapping the year for you with my Call Me PMc Best Posts 2014. Now all your favorite recipes all in one place on callmepmc.com
2014 where did you go? Seems like yesterday I was sitting here writing my 2013 year in review!! When I think back over the last year, it brings tears to my eyes how blessed I am. My husband and boys are such a blessing. My friends are great. I’m healthy despite being ‘really old, Mommie’ according to Ryder. And then the success of callmepmc.com.
I can promise you, I would have never worked so hard for anybody else. Callmepmc.com is my passion and I hope it shows in the recipes I create and share. Starting a business, this site, from nothing and working every single day on it since March 2012 and seeing it grow, has been so so rewarding. I’ve learned more than I can even describe. Some of the things I’ve learned is computer code, photography, lighting, styling and marketing.
All I knew how to do was cook and write. If I had really known how little I knew about running a website, I may not have started callmepmc.com. But ignorance is bliss sometimes and in this case it’s true. Blindly, I followed a dream and I’m so glad I did.
Just a couple of words. For those of you who leave nasty comments, there’s a real person behind every blog. We make mistakes and errors; we’re human. Keep that in mind when you comment in the future. For those of you who thank me for a recipe similar to your long-lost favorite, leave words of encouragement and constructive criticism, thank you! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I work with food, a camera and a computer all day, it’s nice to hear from you and know real people are really reading!
My stats on 12-23-13 were:
Google Plus 35,285
Currently, my social media stats are (as of 12-22-14)
Google Plus 41,969
How did I grow this year?
- The main thing I focused on was creating good content. Writing entertaining and informative posts with great recipes.
- I also concentrated on my photography. Although I improved, I still have so much to learn about photography.
