Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookies

And last but certainly not least, here we have protein cookies from Lenny & Larry’s! I know, I know, these are cookies and not bars but I do believe they earned a spot on my top 10 list! This variety pack of Lenny & Larry protein cookies features 16 cookies in 8 different, fun flavors! These protein cookies are gigantic and you can actually split them into two servings if you would like. That is what I usually do with these because they are very filling! Each Lenny & Larry’s protein cookie contains 16 grams of protein. Err with caution here if you are watching your sugar! Each serving (1/2 a cookie) has 15 grams of sugar. That’s fine though… just have a Lenny & Larry’s cookie on one of your “cheat days”!

Grab a 12 pack of their best-selling Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor! Or you can go with my personal favorite Birthday Cake!

Year In Review – Top 10 Posts At Give It A Whirl Girl For 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY READERS!

It has been a great year for 2018 over here at Give It A Whirl Girl! I started up this blog in early June and it has been one hell of an awesome ride! At the start of 2018, I made a new year’s resolution to start a blog. I am so happy to say that it was one of my new year’s resolutions that I actually stuck to and accomplished.

On June 6th I was at home and I was recovering from an umbilical hernia surgery when I got the idea to follow through and fire it up. I had no clue or idea what the heck I was doing when I started (I don’t think anyone knows lol). I started to read and research how to do this whole blog thing. Still to this day I am feeding my brain with knowledge about blogging. Seems as though there is always something new to learn if you are going to make a job out of blogging.

I am so happy and pleased to say that I absolutely love blogging and this is something that I will definitely be sticking to for a very long time. I have always been passionate about food. I live for the thrill of trying new foods (giving them a whirl) and I am also very much in love with cooking. It made perfect sense to take all of this into consideration and start blogging about these passions of mine.

And here you have it, folks! Here is my top ten list of the most visited posts for 2018.

Really am envious of the winner of this prize pack because all of these chocolate confections are out of this world amazing. Really am hoping that they are loving their chocolates!

It is kinda sorta hard for me to believe that one of my very first posts at Give It A Whirl Girl has generated so much traffic. This post gets a lot of traffic from Google search. I had zero knowledge at the time on how SEO worked but somehow I managed to get this post to show up well in the results.

I had a great time reviewing the Yasso Frozen Yogurt. I ended up making a delicious sundae with the Party Animal flavor. For the topping, I added some marshmallow to it, candy sprinkles, and three frosted animal cookies. And let us not forget about the cherry on top! Every splendid sundae needs to be topped with one of those!

Give It A Whirl Girl Blog Goals For 2019

Improve photography

I know, I know! One thing I need to improve upon here at Give It A Whirl Girl is my photography and I am going to make it a priority to get better at this in 2019. I need to get the funds to improve my equipment first. I would love to get some proper lighting equipment and a new DSLR and a great lens to go on it. Anyone want to send $2000 my way because I think that is what it will take to be where I need to be!

Better blog design

Honestly, I am not 100% in love with the blog design over here at Give It A Whirl Girl. I play around with different themes every now and then to see if I can find a better style. In 2019 it will be a top priority to get a better design here, a logo, and also a nice photograph for my short bio.

More giveaways

As you can see in my top 10 list, the giveaways generate a good amount of traffic. Traffic is great! I also love hosting these giveaways and partnering with brands that I love and endorse. I feel like the giveaways are a great way to give back to my loyal readers. To me, they are a great way of saying thanks!

More restaurant reviews

You can also see that in this top 10 list there are some restaurant reviews that received quite a bit of hits. I enjoy doing those as well and I admit, I have been slacking on doing them. They do make me a bit nervous to do. I am going to attempt to come out of my shell more and bring more local hot spots to my readers.

More reader engagement

One thing that I need to improve upon also is that I would love to gain more reader engagement. Comments on my posts bring a great amount of happiness and joy to me. I love knowing that someone took a few minutes out of their day to read a post of mine. In 2019 I will be investing more time in blog promotion so I can spread the word about my posts far and wide!

 

Question Time!

What would you like to see more of over here at Give It A Whirl Girl in the new year?

Also, do you have any new year’s resolutions you would like to share?

Leave me a comment and let me know.
