A year ago today I launched Bicultural Mama. Back then I didn’t know what the blog would lead to – I just knew I wanted to write and blogging provided me a forum to do so. Since then I’ve learned so much about social media, the blogger community, and writing. With the growth of the blog, it has provided many opportunities to meet great people and experience new things.
Several readers have asked what posts have ranked the highest in page views over the last year. I’ve summarized the top 5 below starting with the most read post of all time.
Alba Launches Eco-Friendly Children’s Products Line with Home Delivery Service
I had the great opportunity to attend Jessica Alba’s event promoting her
new line of natural and eco-friendly baby products called The Honest Company. Ranging from diapers and
wipes to toiletries for the whole family, I became a fan of her philosophy and
non-toxic products. This post soared to the top because Jessica Alba shared a
link to my post on her Facebook page.
She has 4.5 million Facebook fans, so needless to say I experienced a
huge spike in web traffic. By the way, everyone asks what she was like. I only
talked to her briefly, but she was friendly. Most of all, you could tell she prided herself in being a mom first, and acting came second.

Junior Premieres “Doc McStuffins” Featuring Ty Burrell from “Modern Family”
“Doc McStuffins” is a new animated Disney series that premiered on the
all new 24 hour Disney Junior channel. It’s about a little girl who cares for
“sick” and “injured” toys in the playhouse in her backyard. I like the fact that the main character is a person of color shown in a positive light. My little one has
been watching this show and gets excited when it comes on. She sings the song that
they play on every episode and even pretends she’s a doctor with her own dolls!

Symbolism Behind Chinese New Year Foods
I wrote this post for Chinese New Year this year. I always knew Chinese
food held deep symbolism and wanted to write it all down in one place. It’s a good reference piece and
a reminder about how much food plays a part in certain cultures.

World Trade Center Observation Deck Photos Two Weeks
in August 2001 a friend and I visited the observation deck of the World Trade
Center. Little did we
know that two weeks later the world would change. I am grateful that I was a
shutterbug and took a bunch of photos while there. I posted this for the 10th
anniversary of 9/11.
