* * * BLOG STATS of 2012 * * *

Wow, this is amazing! I LOVE WordPress! They have been so good to me this past year & I really find the site to be user friendly. I think at a Q&A I said my WordPress site was free but I recently found out that I actually pay $100 a year for it—not sure why but I remember it was a good decision at the time haha!

Here are some statistics they sent me!:

This blog was viewed 67,000 times in 2012.

The search terms that brought people to me the most!?:
amanda hedgepeth photography blog, amanda hedgepeth blog, amanda hedgepeth photography, and wedding southampton county.
(Thank you Southampton County couples for that! That’s my husband’s hometown!)

FIFTY TWO different countries viewed my blog!!!

My highest view day has 3.162 views! WOW!!!

The top viewed wedding was Elizabeth & Mark’s Sandbridge Virginia Beach wedding!
Part One
Part Two

The second most view wedding was Ashley & Mike’s KEY WEST Wedding!
Part One
Part Two


The top posts? Discounts & Guilt and Lens Cap Problems! This makes me laugh, because Discounts and Guilt was both well received and poorly received…….WAY more on the well received for the honesty and eye opening for people who were unaware of the issues photographers and business owners face on the subject but I had five IMMEDIATE unlikes on my business page after posting! My response to that? See yaaaaaa! 🙂 And “Lens Cap Problems” is one of the funniest series of images of Cammy EVER!

Overall it was a WONDERFUL blogging year, I am so glad people take the time to visit because the blogs I write are from the HEART, honest, real..and hilarious sometimes when involving the WILD little gal in my life! Images look better on the blog, too! Next year– there will be some blogging changes. Weddings will no longer be in two parts, something I did this year because of my lack of organization for FAST turn around times…and there will be more consistency and structure in blogging that people can count on! 🙂 HAPPY NEW YEAR YALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 CHEERS TO 2013! :):)
