My post about fixing a Dyson cordless vacuum has drawn huge readership for two years. I regularly receive emails from people thanking me for helping them fix their expensive vacuum when they were afraid they’d have to trash it. The post drew more than 230,000 page views last year alone. It’s also my most viewed post of all time, going back to when I started LivingWithBeth almost four years ago.
Another old favorite is my low carb pumpkin pie recipe. I continue to make and enjoy this fabulous recipe myself, too.

My post featuring Amazon Alexa tips was semi-popular during most of 2017 and then really took off around Christmas. I assume that’s because so many people received Alexa-enabled devices under the tree.
