Hey guys! Welcome back. I thought I would do a reflection of 2017 for all of you. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being so incredibly supportive. I have grown to really enjoy blogging and connecting with those of you I had the amazing opportunity to get to know. I didn’t really start blogging until June 2017, but it was an amazing few months. My blog grew so much and I can’t wait to see what 2018 has to offer. I hope you are as excited as I am!

2017 brought me 135 followers. I still remember when I got my first follower. I remember when I was proud of having ten. I hit some huge milestones in terms of followers and I could not be more grateful.

I did a really great job at posting. I didn’t post every single day, but I posted quite a bit. So many of my posts were extremely popular, some of them surprisingly so. I kept up with it more than I thought it would.

My blog did really well in 2017. Not only did my followers increase, my posts increased in structure and content. In the last few months I changed the way I approached coming up with content, and I think it really showed. I want to go back to my original structure in 2018 because I want to have some kind of organizational structure.

I was able to fall back in love with writing. Blogging helped me find my voice, my focus, and my drive. I love posting and writing and interacting with you all. My blog gave me a passion and something to work for.

Getting to know you all and read your blogs has been a highlight. Blogging has really helped me and I truly believe that it grew extensively. I appreciate all of my followers that 2017 brought me. From the very first to the last you are all noticed and loved. I still get just as excited when I get a new follower as I did in the beginning.

Thank you to the person who followed me already this year. You have been noticed as well. Thank you to all of my social media followers. Without all of you none of this would be possible. I wouldn’t still be blogging if no one was reading them. Because you are all here and still reading, I keep posting. I appreciate all of you and look forward to the new year. I am excited to share it with all of you.

I cannot believe that I made it to 100 followers. It just shows that people are reading and enjoying what I am reading. It shows that if you really work hard and care about something, the results will show. I am so proud of how far it has come. Three words I would use to describe my blog in 2017 it would be growth, enjoyment, and satisfaction. I discovered that I love writing and creating content.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Comment below what your favorite thing about my blog is. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
