Renovation project - Top 100 Renovation blogs on the web

Renovation project - Top 100 Renovation blogs on the web

This week I received an amazing e-mail. The blog has been selected by Feedspot as one of the Top 100 Renovation Blogs on the web.
Yes that is right, one of the top 100 on the entire web!
I am still in a bit of a state of shock as even though I know the blog is popular and we have e-mails from around the world, we even have visitors from around the world. The furthest so far was a couple from Canada, that had actually come to view houses here in Huelgoat after following the blog!
But after the excitement, I started to wonder if it was legitimate, after all we had not entered any competitions, I have not even been blogging as much as I used too.
I decided to e-mail Feedspot and ask how and why, the response was fantastic, it wasn’t a case of applying, they found us.
Here is the reply:
We have considered following factors to rank the blog.
·         Search Engine ranking
·         Social media influence
·         Social media buzz
·         Alexa Ranking
·         Post frequency
·         Quality score by our editorial team
It really is a case of the blog has become award winning and one of the most widely read renovation blogs on the web.
We may not be number one but at 63 worldwide, I am happy.

I still marvel at how my blogging career has come about, I think back to when I first set it up, it really was just a way to let family and friends know what we were up to. I had no blogging experience, though I had written a lot in previous jobs. But now here I am, an award winning blogger with a book under my belt and a weekly article in an online magazine.
I think I can safely say I am a very happy bunny
So there is nothing left to say other than thank you to everybody that has found us, followed us and read us.
Thank you we could not have done it without you.
