A Helicopter Mom has had an amazing year! I’ve had over a million unique visitors and 1.5 million pageviews according to Google Analytics. We’ve grown to 23,000 Facebook fans, 20,000 Twitter followers and 3,200 Pinterest followers. I’ve started to really love Pinterest and Instagram and will be concentrating on them for the first few months of 2013.
In 2012, I was chosen to participate in some truly wonderful campaigns, including Nike Moms and Maytag Moms, and traveled to some amazing places including several conferences, the Real Whirled House, the Nike Campus and on an awesome Brandcation. I’ve made new friends and learned many new things and can’t wait for whatever 2013 will bring!
As you’ll see from my referring sites statistics, a large number of my visitors early in 2012 came from Stumble Upon. Once Stumble Upon changed their system, that traffic slowed and I was able to concentrate on other forms of social media and marketing. Since then, I’ve been pleased with the traffic I’ve seen coming from other sites, continuing from current readers and even new ones from those Stumble Upon posts.
I’m starting some great new habits and working with some awesome new companies and people in 2013, and can’t wait to see where A Helicopter Mom will go!
