So… technically, Create & Thrive is having a holiday this week *blows party horn*.
However, I decided that I really wanted to do a ‘best of’ post to highlight the most popular and most useful posts we’ve published this year.
I can’t quite believe I only started Create & Thrive at the end of January this year. It feels like it’s been around so much longer, and the feedback you have all given me and the writing team this year has been nothing short of amazing. Never does a week go by that I don’t get at least a few emails from readers who say ‘thank you’ for what we do here at C&T.
So, as we wrap up our first year, I want to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU for being here!
Thank you for reading what we share.
Thank you for sharing what we write.
Thank you for taking our advice and putting it into action.
Thank you for daring to dream a business into being.
Thank you for every comment, tweet, facebook comment, pin, +1 that you’ve taken the time to do – honestly, we wouldn’t be where we are now without your support.
I have big plans for C&T in 2014 – we’ve got a whole lotta amazing writers coming on board – women who have done what you want to do: created a successful creative business. You’ll learn a LOT from them.
So, to celebrate our first year, here are the 15 most popular posts of 2013 : the ones YOU found most useful!
And… bonus… here are 5 more posts that are more recently popular, so haven’t had the time to rank as ‘most popular for the year’ yet, but that are relevant for right now:
Finally, I want to finish off the year by saying my biggest THANK YOU of them all – to my kick-ass, amazing, inspirational Assistant Editor – Megan Eckman, and to foundational writers Katia Donohoe and Danielle Spurge. Ladies – thank you for taking a chance on me and this blog and for being there right from the beginning!
I hope you have a most fabulous holiday time – we’ll be back next week to kick off 2014!
P.S. If you have a favourite post from C&T this year that doesn’t appear in the lists above, please share it with us in the comments!
