Link Roundup: Best of Sage Grayson Coaching 2012

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I am so grateful for the support, encouragement, and love I’ve received over the past year from you, my kick-ass followers!

It’s because of you that I was able to blast through my old limitations and start my own life coaching business, Sage Grayson Coaching.

Some of you have been with me from the beginning when I had a little fashion blog (ha!—remember that?), that morphed into an advice blog, that went through another transformation into this collection of self-empowerment, sweetness, and wisdom that you see now.

So, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’ve got some big plans for 2013 that I can’t wait to share with you! I’m using my word of the year, focus, to hone in on the types of blog posts, videos, products, and services you want to see.

And one thing that’s really opened my eyes to who you are and what’s important to you is my yearly review of the most-viewed content on my website.

Wowzers! I was blown away by my Google Analytics report.

Some things I thought would be a big hit completely fizzled (apparently, no one loves brackets). And other things I thought would get no traffic ended up being crazy popular (good to know you’re music fans).

So without further ado, here are the most-viewed freebies, videos, and blog posts of 2012.

    Well, first and foremost I have to say I’m so incredibly proud of you Sage. You’ve really done amazing things this year, as we can see by your link round up! Nor only do you provide amazing advice for us, but you are an amazing example for us as well. You are so brave to leave your job and follow your passion and start you coaching business. Seeing that example has been just as valuable as all of the amazing advice you give.

      Sarah, I think you were the only person who read my brackets post and watched the brackets video. Whatever, people! I love brackets, so there. 🙂

      Thanks for being such a great frogger (ha ha!)! I love reading your comments. You’re going to have an amazing 2013 and have lots of fun pursuing your dreams!

    Your blog content certainly has changed, but it’s still as good as ever! Google Analytics can really be helpful and so interesting, too. I hope that 2013 is a great year for you!!
