The last Fancy Friday of the year! Let’s make it the best!
Looking back at 2016
I had actually planned for today another post, but I thought it would be nice to have a moment to look back on 2016. Not only on blogging area but simply about everything. I got the idea when I wanted to see how my blog looked like a year ago and read the post of the same day a year ago. I remembered I was very disappointed in my social life and that I wanted to change that in 2016. What I did was just let go…..letting go of friendships that don’t bring you anything, only sucking the energy out of me. And suddenly new friendships were made, as if I was more open to it( I think). I was not sick in 2016……at least not for a week ago! I got very sick last week but I feel much better now and my lungs weren’t affected so I was very happy! Further I’m somewhat deteriorated, my energy is less and less, but I can cope better with it. We went twice to the UK and the second time twice as long as normal. England is a real treat for us, we love it there. We can’t wait to go again. We had some great weekend trips and nothing really bad happened with our family and friends. But the highlight for me was the concert of The Cure. Like if I was in a daze the whole time.
And what has changed with the blog?
Well actually a lot! Here is the post from the same day last year. I still love the outfit, but the pictures were taken by phone and this was the free wordpress site and I had never heard of SEO. Pity that I can’t see anymore how many visitors I had back then. I also didn’t host the Fancy Friday linkup yet. That started here. My goal was to have 100 linkups per week by the end of the year. That did not happen, the highest was 87. But I am secretly quite a bit proud. In April I switched to a self-hosted site and I learned so much more! You should know that before I started blogging, I had never worked with a computer. Yes, I could send e-mails but that was it. Before I started the free blog, I went to a four night course about blogging and the rest I figured out all by myself. And I am very happy and proud of my little playground! And now I must see if I can articulate a good sense because I don’t want to sound so cliché. I find it incredibly amazing that I have so many loyal readers around the world. Thank you for reading, participating and commenting! Awesome!
I wish you all a very nice New Year’s Eve!
