top blog posts of 2017

Happy January everyone! Now that 2018 is officially here it’s time to take a look back at my posts from 2017 and see what was most popular with my readers.

It’s always interesting for me to see what really resonated with people, and this year was no different. As someone that started out as solely a DIY blogger before branching out into more of a lifestyle blog, it’s funny that although a DIY post did hold the top spot this year, it’s the only project in the whole bunch. Also, there are no recipes in the top 10 this year.

It was pretty nice to see that apparently y’all like what I have to say though, as most of the top posts were just me sharing my thoughts or being real with you. This also seemed to be the year where you enjoyed hearing about all things baby, big surprise, wink wink. So without further ado, here are my top posts from 2017.

And of course, I have to share some of my favorite posts with y’all. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of everything I put on this little space of mine, but there are a few that I loved for one reason or another that didn’t make your list. So in addition to the ones that you enjoyed last year, here are some of my own personal favorites…

    I’m pretty sure I read most if not all of these posts, but I definitely want to go back and revisit some of them. I’m still super jealous that you guys got to go on a cruise this year and I’m hoping my husband and I can do one in the next few years (without kids *wink*).

    I went to check your post about Instagram unfollow since it’s a big issue nowadays. That’s a very good post actually. It’s good to know. In my whole instagram “career” I think I unfollowed maybe 2 people so I really had no clue why people would do it. Thanks!
