2015 was the year of giving thanks. After nearly nine years in business, I recognize that I'd be nowhere without the readers who connect with us, the brands that support us and the bloggers that work with us.
Since it was the year of gratitude, first and foremost we tried to serve our community by giving you awesome features. We invested in better photography and made an effort to post less frequently but with better quality. I think the site looks pretty sharp! There were other things too. For the readers, oh did we deliver some amazing giveaways, and we put our blood sweat and tears into our special guides to make life easier for all the parents out there.
When it came time to thank all the bloggers in our orbit we headed to Minted to spread cheer. For years, families have been relying on Minted for holiday cards, but what about your brand? Why not make a pretty effort to let those you work with know you appreciate them.
We picked the Fresh Thanks Business Holiday Cards and personalized them--we even added a photo on the back with a photo of the team. I was so happy with the results AND I was able to quickly upload my address list to get fancy-schmancy addressed cards. While I would love to hand-write each card, my writing has gotten pretty shabby over the years. What fun it was to see the tweets and instagrams from our blogging friends as they received their cards.
