This has been an incredible year for How Do You Do It?, if I do say so myself. Let’s take a look at 2013 in review.

2013 Year in Review at hdydi.com

HDYDI got involved in modes of social media beyond just the blog, from Facebook and Google+ to Pinterest and Tumblr. We even resurrected our Twitter account with the help of our new Twitter Moms. We freshened up around the blog, adding some snazzy icons, thanks to the very talented Nicole at the Pixel Boutique.

We added a number of new features and resurrected old ones, including Foodie Fridays. We started some other weekly series, targeted especially at providing inspiration and support to the newest MoMs, those with infants and toddlers. The ever-creative Dory kicked off Make-It Mondays, while Katelyn got our Monday parenting link party off the ground.

I dug up old gems From the Archives, remembering that many parenting questions, tips and tricks remain the same year after year.

The HDYDI Moms also ramped up our theme weeks this year. We participated in a Breastfeeding Blog Carnival, blogging about all aspects of nursing multiples, from tales of success to stories of heartbreak and loss. Our Back to (Pre/Home)School Week focused on beginning a new school year, while the How to Afford Twins Week spoke to one of the very real challenges we all face. Prematurity Awareness Week was both inspiring and heartbreaking.

Check out some standout posts from what our 37 contributors this year have had to say. That’s right. Thirty-seven contributors just in 2013! We wrote over 400 posts this year.

A huge big thank you to Priscilla of Wheelchair Mommy for inspiring this post with her year end review.

Which post stood out to you this year?
