The Best Posts of 2017

2017 has been a big year for me on my blog. I started the blog back in 2016 but actually got serious about it this year. I have spent some money on the blog and finally, have started to see a return on it.

I also had a shift in my posts and decided on a niche for the blog, so some of these posts don’t fit with the current theme. I found that I most enjoy writing about my recipes and everything related to the kitchen, so now that’s my focus.

This list is my top-viewed posts for the year based on the number of page views. It’s everything except for recipes, that will be another list.

    I love the giving plate idea and I would really LOVE to try that one out! The giving plate becomes sort of a nomad doesn’t it? I need to figure out whether or not I have time to get a recap post up as this week is particularly busy for me, but it is always fun to revisit old posts, thankfully facebook does that for me with the Shared Memories Feature where you can go back a few years to the day’s date.

    I hate organizational challenges as I am super space deprived. It’s something I need to get better at in 2018.
