Now this is something I have never done before because I never thought anything special had ever happened to my blog before for me to warrant writing this type of post. However 2016 was the best my blog has been to date and I am so fucking proud of that.
I also saw that The Mini Mermaid had written something like this so she inspired me to do this too.
From having a look at my stats I discovered that the views of my blog in 2016 more than doubled in comparison to 2015! WOW!
Views – 18,683
Visitors – 12,608
Views – 39,951
Visitors – 30,987
Top 5 posts of 2016:
Lush Halloween 2016 – 2,560
Lush Christmas 2016 – 1,351
I’m not going to lie when I say I am a tad disappointed that not more of my varied posts weren’t on here… But meh I can’t complain! To be honest I am known for my lip product reviews, as well as Lush reviews as well so these seem apt to be fair.
Since me starting There Might Be Coffee in 2011 my blog has grown and here is how much.
I have written 597 posts.
I have had 91,224 views.
I have had 64,427 visitors.
Finally my best views ever were on the 13th September 2016 with an amazing 597 views on my blog! The post that was live on my blog that day was Big Beauty haul.
So what would I change about my blog in 2017?
I would love to attend more events to be honest! I loved attending all the events that I did in 2016 and it was lovely to meet some amazing bloggers along the way.
I would also love to write more reviews and start doing my look book posts again as I really miss doing those.
To be honest towards the end of 2016 my blog wasn’t as active and posts weren’t being written and published as often as I wanted them to be. Why? Well I work in retail/hospitality and with that comes working all over Christmas and dealing with people getting ready for “the most wonderful time of the year” (didn’t just sing that as I typed it…) so as soon as I came home from work I would be shattered and just want to eat, order presents online, wrap presents, read, play games and chill out.
I have noticed since moving into the house that when I lived at home the first thing I would do other than get changed into my pajamas was turn my laptop on. I don’t do that when I get home from work in my house. I still get changed into my pajamas but more often than not I’ll start doing some housework. My laptop gets put on a back shelf and it’s because I have better things to do now and as boring as I sound, more adult matters.
However I am going to try my hardest in 2017 to keep my blog updated and posts published as often as I can because I genuinely missed writing throughout November and December.
I now have a daily journal I use to write down blog ideas and when I’ll be writing them up etc. I also intend to use a notebook to write blog posts in whenever I don’t get the chance to get on my laptop to type up ideas etc.
What kind of posts would you like me to write in the future? Once a month I might pop a little voting panel up on my Twitter so you can go and vote.
Until next time all take care and I hope you’re having a lovely week so far.
