My Top 10 Blog Buddies of 2010

by hookedonhouses on December 31, 2010

Thank You sign

I’ve been traveling all week and haven’t had much time to blog or respond to e-mail (sorry!). I’m on road again today, driving home from Indiana where we’ve been visiting Dave’s family, so I didn’t think I’d have a chance to post anything. Then I saw that some bloggers are thanking their Top Referrers, so I’m totally copying them (thanks Nester and Melissa!).

These are the 10 awesome blogs that sent mine the most traffic in 2010. I can’t thank them enough for all of the new readers they sent my way (you might be one of them!):

1. Cote de Texas

2. Thrifty Decor Chick

3. My Sweet Savannah

4. Young House Love

5. Casa Sugar

6. The Lettered Cottage

7. Centsational Girl

8. Nesting Place

9. Between Naps on the Porch

10. Things That Inspire

I am so grateful to all of you who linked to me this year. I wish I could list all of my blog buddies here!

I am also very thankful for all of my readers who helped spread the word about Hooked on Houses and sent their own friends and family members my way. You guys are the best! Looking forward to getting to know even more of you in 2011.

You’re the best Julia! Keep blogging we love it! Happy New year to you and your family!

If I couldnt list them all I wldnt list any. Seems like a slap in the face to ppl who try very hard & they get ignored. Consider one follower gone.

Wow. If this offended or hurt anyone, I’m sorry. I am always trying to find ways to express my thanks to my readers and supporters and this seemed like a way to give back to the ones who mentioned my blog throughout the year. -Julia

Hello, Julia!

I’d like to thank you for all the posts, for all hard work that we had to put in a blog sometimes, for so much laughter and to be a person that inspire me.

I wish that you, your family and your devoted readers have a really BLESSED NEW YEAR! Don’t we all need a little more of that? :-)

Many hugs and kisses!

Happy New Year to you and your family! Safe travels too…we are getting some crazy weather here in the mid-west – be safe! Thanks as always for this gift of a blog. It is a spot I can sit down with a cup of coffee and visit. You always find interesting things to for us to look at and read about. It must take a great deal of time and effort…
your readers appreciate it!
best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2011! -Melissa

Happy New Year Julia!! I am such a fan of Hooked on Houses!! It makes my day and makes me smile to see a new post. My sisters and I have been ‘hooked on houses’ literally since we were young, and this blog showcases exactly what we love about houses and homes. You are a talented lady! Keep the awesome posts coming!

I just wanted to tell you how much I LURVE LURVE LURVE your blog! (Since this looks like a gratitude thread LOL). I am officially hooked. I stop in multiple times a day and I’m still finding great ‘new’ posts to read (new to me anyway). So thanks for a great blog!!

Now I’ll have to go check out your top referrers, too. I may not have any time to sleep at this rate.


hookedonhouses January 3, 2011 at 11:03 am

That’s so nice! Thanks, Cindy! :)
