Yesterday’s post was all about 2018’s top performing posts in general.
Today’s post is about the top performing posts written this year.
You can see that the posts that performed well this year are a little more varied in format and topic. Part of that has to do with the fact that posts that stay evergreen for years are more likely to be highly “pinnable” and answer a question in Google searches. I am always happy to see those posts performing well, but what’s the fun of a blog without some personality? It’s nice to see some reviews, personal style posts, and essays in the mix.
This year in blogging is such a blur. I worked on some wonderful freelance projects and sponsored posts with brands I love and have an ongoing relationship with. But the freelance life never gets easier – I think it’s actually getting harder! And some days I feel like the old lady who doesn’t have the advantage of being a “digital native” in a space full of incredibly savvy women.
When I’m down on myself, I try to remember that I am proud of what I’ve done, and it might not answer all the questions or pay all the bills, but it is enough.
