The most loved, most views and clicked blog posts of 2020 chosen straight by YOU.
I always love to dig deep into my analytics at the end of a year. I spend hours perusing over my site and finding out what did well, what didn’t and what posts SEO really loved this year.
I think the industry of blogging has evolved so much over the years that having a specific site to view all your posts isn’t necessary to have a blog anymore (even though it is super valuable in my opinion). The truth lies in the analytics and you’ll always be able to dive deeper into those on a website than an Instagram page. Having a blog website is so important to me one, because I love long form content and getting to share all the things with you and two, SEO. Some of my most popular posts are from 2019 because they have been around long enough for them to become commonly stumbled upon posts year after year. The internet isn’t going anywhere and lot of people who find my blog find it through a Google search.
I really wanted to thank you for reading my blog this year. Seriously you have no idea how much it means to me that you are here and reading the things I write and put out there. I really feel like I learned a lot about my blog and the direction I want to take it this year. I found my footing and I think it showed in how popular each blog post I wrote was this year. I talk more about this in my YouTube video on goal setting here.
So thank you for being here reading and caring what I have to say. None of this would work or be possible without you! Let’s get to the good stuff.
Note: I am not including any of my holiday posts, gift guides, Sephora sales, Amazon Prime day posts as those are some of my most popular posts year after year.
