There are only 9 days left of 2014 and of course it’s a time for everyone to start looking back and reflecting on the year. What did 2014 bring? Did I accomplish my goals? Well, for me here at Lipstick and L’Attitude the reflecting moments have been frequent occurrences. A year ago I made myself some blogging goals and not only did I reach them, I doubled what I had expected. I’ve had such a successful year compared to what I expected and what I had hoped for after only a year and a half of blogging. And 2015 is already looking great with some cool collaborations to come (shh….more details later).
So while reflecting back on 2014 I took a look into the stats for my top 5 posts to get an idea of what you guys like and to help me plan a little bit for the coming year. And you guys didn’t make it easy! Each of the 5 most popular posts were completely different topics, categories and products. So I guess that means continue with a little bit of everything? This is what you guys liked this year:
Coming in at number 5 was the ‘Last Minute Gift Ideas for Valentines Day’ which, can you guess, I posted on February 13th. A surprising amount of you procrastinators checked this one out and it achieved a great number of google searches. Lots of procrastinators out there. This was the first post to shake me into “hey! I can do this” blogging mentality! That followed a very close number 4 with my review of the Nyx Wonder Pencil. I’ll have to admit it’s not my best photography on this one and I was quite surprised at the post’s popularity. I still hold true to my love of this wonder product.
Now not so close at number 3, gaining a considerable amount more attention, was my little blurb about my adorable Zara Mini Messenger Bag, which I think stays true to the ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ saying. Great picture, very few words, many hits. It IS a great bag. Even further up there in the stats, at number 2 was one of my favourite posts of the year to write: the Style Guide: Get the Look from ‘Begin Again’. More than double the amount of views of the 3rd top hit. This wow’ed me! I was a little blown away and awed! I certainly can’t wait to write more of these ‘Get the Look’ posts! So much fun.
And my number 1 post of 2014…..drumroll…..was my review of India Hair-Yurvedics from I.C.O.N. A certainly surprising winner as it is probably my most negative review of all time. Products I did not quite enjoy in any way. Interesting. All in all, I was blown away by your views this year and each and every day is seeing more and more. I’m truly thankful to each and every follower and loyal reader, and even to those of you who stop by just once and awhile. You’ve given me hope for a positive internet world and you have stoked the fire of a passion and a hobby (lord knows I needed one). So thank you guys!! Keep reading and stay posted for some exciting stuff in 2015!!!!
