The 20 most popular posts of 2015

What’s something I’ve learned from blogging over the last couple of years? You can never quite tell what is going to resonate with readers and the greater Internet. When it comes to posts published here on A Lady Goes West, fitness topics are a clear winner. And some of my early posts about Les Mills group fitness classes continue to get the most traction around the World Wide Web and drive people to this little spot.

In fact, half of my most clicked-on posts in 2015 were actually written in 2014 (the first year that A Lady Goes West began featuring regular weekday content about fitness).

    1. Hi Megan! I started my blog three years ago when I moved to CA as more of a journal for friends and family — I became self-hosted and blogged regularly starting in March 2014. So it’s been 1 year and 3/4 I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Agreed! Sometimes the open, personal information posts are the most commented, but not shared. And bland and generic advice posts go viral. Who knows hahah! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for being my blogging buddy, Susie!

  1. I love reading about people’s trips or fun things they do! You can just tell that they are so happy and I always get tips for my upcoming trips or events! Happy 2016 lady – glad I met you this year!!
