Now is the perfect time to pause and reflect upon the work we’ve done together this year. The purpose of this post is to showcase some of our best stuff from 2014 (and there was a lot of it!). And what about 2015? We’ll share what we have planned for Affaircare and for January and the new year.
The Affaircare Community grew in 2014–and we are so thankful! Last year (2013) we had just 135k visitors, and this year we had 735k!!! Our likes and comments increased exponentially, and so did our Facebook page likes, our Twitter followers , and our newsletter subscriptions. THANKS!!
You Ask, We Listen
We try to add new ways for you to connect with or interact with us and with each other, so this past year, 2014, we released several enhancements for Affaircare. Major highlights include our YouTube Channel, our podcast available on iTunes or Stitcher, our Affaircare App so you can stay connected while you’re mobile, and our new Affaircare Forum. We also created a new program “90 Days to Save Your Marriage and Save You“.
Building an online community is more than just creating a website—Affaircare needs people like you to return to our website over and over. We offer quality content addressing all the various stages and questions about infidelity. Providing the opportunity to engage in continual learning is a priority for Affaircare.
Our three favorite pages were:
- ALL of the Signs Your Spouse May be Cheating
- Before you cheat… 14 things you need to know
- Understanding Your Loyal Spouse
Our most popular blog posts were:
- Infidelity and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (July 2014)
- Why some couples just can’t seem to reconcile–Part 1 (February 2014) NOTE: Here’s Part 2 of that series … and here’s Part 3.
- Clues that a Disloyal Spouse Has Really Changed (May 2014)
In addition to our blog, we have added articles (“The Divorce Busting 180“), quizzes ( “Just Friends” or Infidelity? and Heart Chart), information (Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy worksheet) and series like “Ask Affaircare” and “Recovering After an Affair” in 2014.
WHAT’S COMING IN 2015
In January we’ll be starting an all new series on “Helping Your Kids Survive an Affair” all about the things a parent can do to help their children survive when one parent has been unfaithful.
We are going to update and improve our “90 Days to Save Your Marriage and Save You” program so that it is completely an online class you can take at your own pace.
We plan to develop a new series “Affaircare: After Divorce” to help those whose spouse had an affair and the marriage ended in divorce, even though that was not their plan. Our ideas include addressing topics like growing, grieving, emotions, esteem, transforming, transparency, and loving again.
And in 2015 we hope to initiate a “Affaircare Gift Giveaway” program two times a year: in summer and for the holidays. We will ask fifteen of our friends and colleagues who are Christian bloggers, writers, podcasters and marriage supporters to offer you a very special gift of their choosing–a free white paper, report, PDF, ebook, or webinar–just as a way to say we appreciate you!
SO … a huge thanks to all of you: our community, partners, and team for helping us make 2014 happen. What happened in your online community this year you want to celebrate? Happy New Year from all of us at Affaircare!
