It’s hard to believe a year has gone by since the first post was ever published on Picklee! It was after lots of soul searching, furniture flipping, and DIY experimenting that I decided I absolutely had to create an outlet to share my passions and love of all that is DIY with you all! On January 31, 2012 (which coincidentally happens to be my own birthday as well, I turned the big two-seven today =)), I shared my first post…a skinny pasta recipe!
It was my passion that kept me feverishly posting for months, and it’s my many loyal readers (XOXO to you all!) that keep that very same passion going on stronger than ever today! In just one short year, Picklee went from 1 visitor to 1.6 million visitors and over 600,000 impressions a month; we even opened up a revived furniture & home decor shop in Newport, RI…it’s all truly a blessing! It’s with many thanks and love for you all that I bring you Picklee’s Top 10 Reader’s Favorite’s over the first year…enjoy!
