Lifestyle blog roundup

2018 roundup

As this year draws to a close and I reflect on the last seven months of blogging, I’m sharing a 2018 roundup of my top posts. It was a year of learning and personal growth, which I hope continues into 2019. I could do with less turbulence, but I’m sure all of us would appreciate coasting on smoother waters. 

I enjoyed connecting with new friends and followers, both on the blog and through my other social media channels (I’m most active on Instagram if you’re trying to find me). I’m planning to be more organized in the new year because, to be honest, I’ve been in a slump these last few months and it’s time to shake it off.

I’m not a new year’s resolution person because I believe change can (and should) happen throughout the year, but I’ll take the excuse to press reset. In fact, I will share my new year’s promises with you next week (everyone breaks resolutions, but most of us strive to keep promises). Hopefully they can inspire you to make some healthy changes too!

  1. I always love personal posts! But, my favorites were your writing posts. I really appreciate them, and I need all the help that I can get! Here’s to the end of 2018, and the beginning of a wonderful New Year!

    1. Thank you, my friend. I’m spending a few days of my vacation filling up my library with writing and craft posts 🙂 I’m going to spend mornings writing my novels and, hopefully, have blog posts written in advance so I can just click publish. Do you prepare your posts in advance? Your blog is far more organised than mine, lol.

      1. That sounds like a great plan. I definitely prepare my posts in advance. The Schedule feature on WordPress saved my life! Haha. It’s been a great tool for me. Less pressure! I strive for organization, so thank you so much for that compliment!
