Welcome to this week’s Thursday Favorite Things!
Jetpack sent me a nice summary of my 2015 year in blogging. Chances are you got one too if you are a blogger. I’m not big on keeping an eye on my stats but, nevertheless, it’s nice to have an overview of my best work and my fans. It couldn’t come at a better timing – you see, All that’s Jas is taking a break from The Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop and also from blogging for a while. You can still linkup with our hostess Katie or other co-hostesses and tell them I sent you.
Why the break? It’s in my name – All that’s Jas. There are many things I like to do (writing and photography to name just a few) but lately all Jas has been doing, for the most part, was recipes. My other interests have been shoved in a corner waiting their turn for when I have time.
Sure you have heard me complain about the time (or a lack thereof) before? Since the beginning of a new year is popular for resolutions, I’m deciding to shift my priorities and pursue my other interests. I will be taking classes too. I’m excited about new possibilities. You understand, right?
Although my stats have improved from last year’s, my numbers are not nearly worth reconsidering. So, whether you were my loyal follower because you liked my recipes or because you’re my family or a friend, I want to thank you for your support and urge you to stop in occasionally. Cooking is my passion and I know I’ll still share a recipe or two. Remember, I’m taking a break not quitting!
My Thursday Favorite Things
You, my readers, are my favorite this week.
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. My blog was viewed about 53,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 20 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The busiest day of the year was April 29th with 637 views. The most popular post that day was Meatballs Stroganoff.
That is a very tasty dish, if I may say so myself.

Perhaps I will – in an e-cookbook. Wait and see 🙂
