What a year it has been. A year that is proving incredibly difficult to put into words. The last 12 months have been quite the ride… there have been so many highs, but met with just as many lows. It’s been a real rollercoaster and it went by in the blink of an eye.
I want to write this post to thank YOU guys. Every single one of you that has taken time out of their day to read a post, leave me a comment, write me an email… it’s because of you that it’s all been worth it. You guys make the Sunday Chapter community so special and I can’t wait to see it grow in 2017.
But before we get into that, let’s get into the best of 2016!
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for so long now and I can’t believe I finally bit the bullet and created a channel. Although it’s still very fresh and there’s been bumps on the road, I am loving every minute of it. It’s so cool being able to connect with you guys on another platform and it’s sparked a whole new creative side in me. Filming has kind of been my escape and kept me sane, so I’m beyond excited to watch our community grow over there. I’ve started off solely beauty, but expect to see some other videos soon on lifestyle, fashion, and my favourite, travel!
But really, how could you not? I even shared a secret spot on the island that I had so many people thank me for! Actually, to be completely honest, I fell in love with all of Greece again. Even Athens (and thank you for all the love on that post).
Sunday Chapter hit 2 million page views
It was my goal at the start of the year to reach 1 million page views, so this just blows my mind! We had over 200,000 page views A MONTH which is just completely incomprehensible to me.
Introduced fashion content
This was a pretty big milestone for me as fashion has always been a direction I’ve wanted to take the blog towards. Sunday Chapter started as beauty, then travel, and now I’ve been so excited to share pieces of fashion as well. Although I would’ve loved to share more over the past year, I’m still pretty happy with what we’ve been able to achieve as it is the first year of breaking out into fashion content.
Most popular posts of 2016
Clearly you guys have a thing for travel too, hey?
So what’s next?
I’m not much of a new year resolutions or anything, but I do believe in setting goals. There are so many things I want to achieve and share for 2017 that I’m just bursting with excitement. I know I’ve strayed away from travel recently and I explained why in this post, but I hope it will become the biggest focus on here again. This time there will be vlogs now that I’ve finally set up YouTube! And on that note, there will also be a bigger focus on YouTube as a platform.
Apart from that, the blog will still remain in a lifestyle category with a focus on fashion, beauty, travel and wellness. I’m bursting with ideas that I can’t wait to get started on and I’m determined to make 2017 the best year yet. I have a good feeling about it so far.
I hope you all had a wonderful year and thank you again for your continuous support. I hope you guys will stay along for the ride this year!
