Blogger Appreciation Day

I found this on Simply Stacie's blog and though it would be a great idea to recognize those blogs who are helping my little blog to grow. 

Blogger Appreciation Day is a monthly meme where you list the blogs that gave you the most traffic for the previous month.
Here’s how to join in:
  1. Go into your tracking service (ie. Google Analytics) and set the time period for October 1 to October 31.
  2. Find the sites that have referred readers to you and put them in order from most sends to lowest.
  3. Write a post (like this one) listing your top 10 referrers.
  4. Link that post at 3 Boys and a Dog (linky posted around the 5th of the month).
  5. Grab the Blogger Appreciation Day picture and add it to your site.
So here’s the list of the top blogs that referred me the most traffic for the month of October:
  1. Someday Crafts: 70 visits
  2. 25 Motif Challenge: 68 visits
  3. seven thirty three: 53 visits
  4. The DIY Show Off: 49 visits
  5. My Give Away Today: 39 visits
  6. Etsy Giveaways: 28 visits
  7. Craft-O-Maniac: 27 visits
  8. The Thrifty Things: 25 visits
  9. Keeping It Simple: 24 visits
  10. Dollar Store Crafts: 18 visits
This little exercise was pretty fun.  It's nice to see where the traffic is coming from even if the majority of it is from Linky parties.  Speaking of linky parties, I want to acknowledge the number one blog sending traffic to the Native & Pilgrim Etsy shopTools Are For Women Too!  Their linky parties have helped make more people aware of our business and I want them to know I appreciate it.

Thanks so much for playing along! You can find a new linky each month on the 5th of the month. I hope to see you next month, too. :-)
