Top 5 Posts of 2014

by Jamie Sanford on December 31, 2014

So here we are, at the end of 2014. The year was filled with blog posts that I really enjoyed creating and worked very hard on. None of those ended up being in the top 5! I will admit though, that the ones I love are also the longest and maybe a bit harder to digest.

So here are the top 5 for this year!

1. Broadway Lighted Vanity Makeup Desk from Vanity Girl Hollywood

From October 2012, I feel like this is a completely unhelpful post for most people. However, the title and such make for happiness in Googleland.

2. Product Picks #3: Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Hydrating Keratin Masque

This is from March 2013. Actually helpful though, I give my honest review of this hair masque.

3. Video Shopping: Adam Savage – Everyday Carry

From April 2013, the Adam Savage Everyday Carry post was sparked by watching Adam’s video on Tested.com and looking up every single thing.

4. Product Review: Aura Paint by Benjamin Moore.

Way back in January 2010, I reviewed Aura paint, and it is STILL my most visited blog post. Benjamin Moore should be paying me for this.

5. Product Pick #6: OPI Natural Nail Strengthener

From August 2013. Another product review that hopefully is helpful! I do love the product.


Is this a bad sign for my content? Everything with the most activity is pretty old. Which means it has had more time to be indexed. I am happy with the content in 2014 and intend to continue on the brand experience journey in 2015.

Top Posts of 2013

by Jamie Sanford on February 3, 2014

I forgot to do a recap of top posts on JamieSanford.com at the beginning of the month, but I did check out my Google Analytics and decided to share.

Here are the most viewed posts of 2013.

1. Product Review: Aura Paint by Benjamin Moore.

This was written in January 2010 and is still by far my most popular post. It was indexed by Google and people are looking for reviews of this paint, and they keep coming back. I wrote it on a whim, which makes perfect sense.

2. Video Shopping: Adam Savage – Everyday Carry

I created 2 video shopping posts and they both featured Adam Savage. I hope to make more of these in 2014.

3. Broadway Lighted Vanity Makeup Desk from Vanity Girl Hollywood

This was posted in October 2012, I had seen the Vanity Girl Hollywood products on YouTube and discussed which ones I would like for my future dream home. Again, another post that was picked up by Google and has continued to send people my way. It’s not a review, so I am sort of worried that it is completely unhelpful for someone looking for one.

4. Gifts for Ancestry Research Buffs

Another old post, this one from 2011. I wrote this as part of a gift challenge for The Daily Wishlist.

5. Product Picks #1: Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Intense Moisturizing Treatment

Another post from another year, this was written in March 2012. I am still a huge fan of this product, so hopefully other people go out and try it after reading my thoughts.


This does not give me a particularly clear view of what to do with content in 2014 to increase readership. I’m still the most pleased with the evolution of my content to the Brand Experience Project, which feels like the most important and authentic content on the site. I have written about many things over the life of the blog, and I’m pleased that all of the writing has led to this one topic that I enjoy and am passionate about.

Let the blogging continue!
