There’s nothing like looking back to see how far you’ve come. We feel pretty proud of how far we’ve come at Albuquerque Moms Blog!

2017 was quite the year for Albuquerque Moms Blog. We truly value you, the fantastic community of moms in our city and region. We love creating content and events with you in mind. It truly is an honor to be able to do what we do.

One of the big focuses of 2017 was to grow our page views and unique visitors to the blog. We’re happy to report that from 2016 to 2017, we’ve seen an 80% increase in page views and unique visitors. It sure does excite us to be able to reach and connect with more moms. Our social media following has grown as well with over 3,000 Facebook likes and 1,000 Instagram followers. 

New Contributors and Team Members::

Our contributors wrote 248 blog posts in 2017. I am super thankful for the committed contributors who put in time and thought every month to deliver content to you. And it’s been such a joy to welcome many new contributors to our blog. New voices. New perspectives. New ideas. New content. These are always great things!

New Partners::

We’ve partnered with over 65 different Albuquerque businesses in 2017. We love introducing brands we love to our readers. 

Fabulous Events::

We had a great time planning some fantastic and well-attended events this year. Our Moms Night Out and our Breakfast with Santa went so well that we plan to do them both again! And guess what else? Lots more events are on the horizon for 2018. Get excited! (I know we are!)

Lots of Local Resources & Guides::

Another goal we’ve had is to put together more guides and local resources to make your life easier and promote some of our favorite places and spaces in ABQ. We’ve added guides to local photographers, consultant-run businesses, pools, summer movies, restaurants where kids eat free, holiday shopping, and so many more! We can’t wait to add to these in 2018.

Without further ado, we want to share our 10 most popular blog posts from the past year. We hope you enjoy re-visiting them as much as we did.
