Readers, we can’t thank you enough for your support this year. And while we always strive to do better, I’m pretty proud of the content we created this year. My goal for The Mom Edit has always been to be helpful. To create content that is really and truly useful — and to be a nonjudgemental, fearless place for others to try and find their own sense of style….to find, really — a piece of themselves.
As a fun little look back, here are our top articles from 2018, based on traffic. I’d love some feedback — which of these would you love to see come back in 2019? Which of these were your favorites, and which ones did you think missed the mark?
According to numbers, you guys love
our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage, especially our dressing room selfies
. We’re glad our hard work pays off, because if there is ONE THING that has us re-evaluating our life choices, it’s this darn sale. We literally work around the clock, several days on end. (Fun fact: it always falls on Gwen’s birthday. At best she gets a grunted, ‘happy birthday’ from me and then Back. To. Work.)
Is there anything worse than shopping for swim? NOPE. Glad you find our edited list (and dressing room selfies) helpful. We’ve always focused on cute one-piece suits (and rash guards)…but I’d love to hear your thoughts on including more bikinis next year.
I don’t always do this article, I typically save it for years when I think the Fall trends are different enough to be worth talking about. How did I do? I think most of these are still on point, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. (Except for the chick on FB who called my outfits “hideous” and the fall trends “laughable.” I’ve heard about enough from you, THANKS.)
Know what this proves? Our readers are NERDS WHO LOVE CHARTS. And we love you for it.
Funny, this was one of my favorites, too. Probably because it involves sneakers and black jeans and basically everything I do really wear everyday.
Tiarra isn’t the only one still trying to ditch her flip-flops. Can I see a show of hands of those of us who refuse to part with them? [S raises hand]
Cam rocks the simple-and-chic vibe. This was one of my favorites, too.
Another sale period that juuuuuust about kills us. Thank you guys so freaking much for reading and clicking. Your support means a lot.
These are always such fun posts to work on — who doesn’t like a flirty, twirly dress that is also comfortable. Again, I’d love to hear some feedback on how I did — anything you’d like me to change for next year?
One thing became very clear this year: you guys LOVE Linzi and her comfort shoes. (And so do I.)
More swim coverage, but this one included complete looks — the suit, the cover-up, the shoes, the bag, the sunnies. More like this next year?
Clearly, I’m not the only one drooling over these seriously cool jeans. And I love that you guys don’t seem to mind some silly mirror selfies. While we love having fancy photos…sometimes these just convey more (realistic) information. Thanks for hanging with our special brand of crazy.
YASSSS. This one was is so crazy good, and a reminder that I need to re-read as I try to recover from holiday craziness.
Anyone else planning a detox in January? This might help.
This post from our newest contributor, Lex, gave us plenty to think about. I’m super-excited about what she has up her sleeve for this year — there are some seriously cool interviews coming up.
Happy Happy New Year to you and yours! We’re soooo grateful you’re here with us, and we can’t wait to see you in 2019 (mwah)!
