2016: A Year In Review

2016: A Year In Review

Well guys, Christmas is over (insert heartbroken emoji). Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas weekend. I can’t believe that its over and now we have to wait 365 until Christmas. But on another note we have 5 days until 2017. With that being said today’s post is all about “2016: A Year In Review”; personal and blog related. 

Also have you noticed that I got a face lift on the blog. I wanted to bring in the new year with a bright look since I can see my future looking bright. 

2016: A Year In Review

My Blog – I’ve worked with so many brands this year and majority of them were sponsored which made me very thankful because all my hard work was definitely paying off. So just know that if you’re a blogger and haven’t been paid yet for your post, DON’T GIVE UP! It’s going to happen. 

Social Media – At the end of last year in 2015 I had over 1,000 followers. Now that 2016 is coming to an end I have over 19,000 followers all together. I’m so grateful for all of you who continue to read my blog and continue to follow me on social media. I truly appreciate it. 

Relationship – Brian and I have been together for 2 years now and I can honestly say that I’m really looking forward to our future together. He’s so amazing with the boys. Maybe in 2017 I’ll be seeing a ring.

Income – Has been great and more things are looking up for 2017 for my family. Being self employed can be hard but with my blog business and my freelance work, I can honestly say that I’m praising the Lord for the blessings. 

Blogger Collaborations – Because of collaborations I was able to gain so many NEW friends. So thank you to all of you amazing bloggers that I collaborated with this year.
