2016 in Review and Looking Forward

Well I can’t believe Christmas is over! It seemed to fly by so quickly this season and I’m not looking forward to taking down all our decorations, I would be fine with another month of Christmas! :)

With only a few days left in 2016, I thought it would be appropriate to look back at some of my favorite memories this year and top read content. I went over a few of my milestones with my 3 Year Blogiversary post. This is more focused on 2016 and what to expect for 2017. Ready?

My top 5 most read posts of 2016:

1. 12 Days of Gifting

This is where I hosted a gift card giveaway to my email subscribers for 12 days beginning December 1st. I will definitely be bringing it back next Christmas season due to the success, but I will also be finding ways during the year for fun giveaways specifically for my e-mail subscribers.

2. How to Grow Your Instagram Following

This is still one of my top read posts even though I wrote it last year! This breaks down everything I did to grow my Instagram up to that point. This also makes me excited, because soon I will be releasing more in-depth content specifically for my e-mail subscribers first, along the lines of everything Instagram- so make sure to subscribe if aren’t already! :)

3. Top 5 VSCO Filters

Which filter I use on Instagram is something I get asked quite frequently and here are some of my favorites! Again, soon I will be releasing filter content more in-depth.
