We know we’re only 2 months old, but we’re already reminiscing! As 2008 approaches, we felt it would be appropriate to recap our “Best Posts Of 2007”, they are each links that take you directly to the posting. If you are new to our site this is a great place to start!
So what makes them the best? Three things:
–We got a lot of comments
–We got good verbal feedback
–They are still relevant (not holiday- related)
1. A Moms Guide to the New Light Rail LYNX
We got so much great feedback on this, 5 comments on the site plus lots of verbal comments. So many people told me they tried it out because of the story! (That gives us the warm fuzzies) We also found out that someone linked this story on Urbanplanet.com and we have had hundreds of people view it from there!
2. Info and Resources for Toy Recalls
This one made me feel really good because we got a comment from someone who said they searched the lists since we made it so easy and found they had 3 recalled items that they would not have otherwise known about.
3. Review of Good and Bad Parks in Charlotte
This was a post by Jen P. Very honest and we got 6 comments with additional park reviews. Luckily we have not gotten any hate mail from Park Road Park, ha ha. We’ll be doing more park reviews in 2008.
4. Minivan vs. SUV
Wow, lots of comments here. You girls sure are passionate about your cars! Interesting that everyone seems to have an Odyssey – where are the Siennas and others? Great comments, I sure know what I will be looking at when I am in the market for a mini-van!
5. Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Charlotte
This one got lots of good comments on additional good restaurant ideas. We’ll be doing a lot more of this in 2008.
6.Just when you think you’re done, oops, it’s TWINS!
I could read this post a thousand times and laugh each time. Maybe because I remember Jen P going through it. I have had so many people comment in person on this posting. I guess everyone loves the honesty of it!
7. Charlotte activities for your PRE-preschool child
We got 8 great comments on good activities, this is worth going back to and reviewing.
8. Birthday Parties: Pump It Up
We got 7 interesting comments on this posting. If you are planning a party at either place you should read this first!
9. Breastfeeding at SouthPark Mall
Got lots of great comments with more ideas here. One reader commented that we should not worry about finding a place, that in this day in age it’s OK to nurse in public. I agree in theory but I was never good enough at latching and I certainly would have flashed the whole mall. It takes great talent to be discreet and I applaud anyone who can be! I was at Cheesecake Factory yesterday and a woman straight in front of me literally whipped it out (not discreetly), full view of everything. I am just not sure I could do that. Maybe I am just bashful?
10. About Us
Not saying this is a “great” article but we did get 28 comments, mostly congratulating us on our launch. If you are new and do not know who we are this is a great place to start!
HONORABLE MENTION: Christmas DVR Line-up
This one does not count since it’s over now, but wow we got so many thanks on this one!
Thanks to everyone who comments on our posts. We read every single comment and we know our readers are commenting too. If you have experiences to share, please do!
