2012 In Review

2012 has been the best blogging year so far and I hope that 2013 is just as great!  Before we ring in the New Year, I thought that I would take a look back at some of my favorite blog posts from this year. 


Game Day Glam – Super Bowl Edition:  I love taking outfit photos (although I don't do it nearly enough).  This is one of my favorites, because colored jeans took over my closet in 2012 and at one point I had to say enough is enough – no more colored jeans.  I also like these photos, because it shows me how much my hair has grown since the beginning of the year. 


The 400M Diva: My One-On-One Interview with Olympic Gold Medalist Natasha Hastings:  This interview was so much fun, because it was like chatting with one of my friends.  The last time I was in Atlanta, Natasha and I met for lunch and did a little browsing in the mall afterwards.  I look forward to catching up with her again soon.



The 21 Do's & Don'ts of Instagram:  When I created this post, I had no idea how popular it would become.  As of this time of this post, it is my 3rd most viewed post ever.  Since creating this post, I've thought of a few more do's and don'ts that I would add to the list.  Maybe you'll see a part 2 in 2013.


BlogHer 12 Recap: Speakers & Sessions:  This was my first BlogHer conference and it was in one of my favorite cities – New York City!  I keep trying to determine if I actually enjoyed the conference itself or if I just enjoyed hanging out in the City with some of my blogger friends.  Regardless of the answer, there were some great speakers at the conference from President Obama to Martha Stewart and Katie Couric.  Oh, and I have all of my live tweets from the conference embedded in this post.  There's some great info there!


BlogHer 12 Recap: Expo Hall & Events:  Outside of the sessions and speakers, I met some cool people, visited some neat places, and took part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 


NFL & Nike Back To Football Photo Shoot:  This was by far my favorite experience of 2012!  I had SO much fun participating in this photo shoot in New York City for Nike and the NFL.  I also met some other pretty cool football fans and I got to take my friend and fellow blogger, Trina, along with me.  Check this post out to see all of the behind-the-scenes photos plus the ones that made the final cut.


NFL Fan Forum, Kickoff Concert & Viewing Party:  So, when I was in New York for the photo shoot, I also got to attend a Fan Forum with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, the Kickoff Concert featuring Mariah Carey and No Doubt, and the viewing party at Rockefeller Plaza for the kickoff game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys. 


What I Wore: New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers (2012):  Anytime my teams comes to town, I'm there.  Despite the rain and my team losing, it was fun because I got to go with my friend Susan, my sister, and one of her friends, Natasha.


The Saints Style Lounge And Monday Night Football:  The NFL flew me and my friend, Loren, down to New Orleans for the Saints Style Lounge and to see the Saints take on the Eagles in Monday Night Football!  It had been years since I'd attended a game in the Superdome, but it was as much fun as I remembered.  Plus, I got a chance to finally meet one of my social media friends (and football wife), Erin, in real life.  Fun, fun fun!  I can't wait to go back next season!


As you can see, all of my favorite posts are those from events that I attended and experiences I had throughout the year.  I love taking you guys along for the ride, so in 2013 I will be bringing you more of ME – more events, more travel, more outfits, more photos, and more videos!  Don't forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram @BlitzAndGlam to see tweets and photos as they happen.  So, what do you have planned for 2013?

    I think your year in review is awesome! I just posted ours earlier…although you were far more hardworking with the pictures! I always like looking back at the previous year and seeing what was accomplished. I absolutely loved your Instagram post and still look back it. I am still learning Instagram…what a shame for a blogger to say. I need to be sure we're following you. Happy New Year Tamara!!
