2022 highlights: blog posts & stats
To be honest, I was not going to do this post this year, because it’s kinda boring…maybe? I don’t know. I actually enjoyed putting it together this time around, so maybe it’s not! Y’all will have to let me know what y’all think in the comments!
It is pretty fun to look back over the year and see what content everyone enjoyed and what all I got to do and share here, so I hope y'all enjoy it as well!

most memorable blogging moment
Hmm. This is tough. To be honest, I have a ton of negative memorable moments, but what’s the point of remembering and dwelling on those? (Not that y’all or my blog is a source of negativity, not at all!)
So…I think that, unsurprisingly, one of the most memorable moments would be sharing about TMYLM and just watching it absolutely take off! Seeing so many people from all corners of the internet come together over this project…just wow. Pure wow right there, folks.
new things I tried
Well, naturally, I tried creating an anthology and hosting a contest for it—and we succeeded, by golly! What an amazing and exhilarating experience! One I’m excited to do again!
I also did two different advice Q&As (one on romance, the other on marketing) that were so. much. fun! I’m excited to debut my next Q&A series this month!
Otherwise, I don’t think I really tried anything else “new,” per se!
My favorite posts? Gosh, that’s tough. I still don’t know why I do this category. 😂 Some of my favorites were absolutely my Q&A posts (you can check out all the romance ones here and the marketing ones here!), and one that will always be near and dear to my heart is my Bound and Determined publication announcement!
What about you? What were some of your favorite posts? What would you like me to share more of this year? Do you blog? If so, how did it go last year? What are you looking forward to doing in 2023? Feel free to share all about it in the comments below!
