2019 Recap: Your Favorite Posts + My Reaction

In the spirit of being transparent, 2019 was my biggest year for blogging! My traffic reached levels I’ve never seen before, you guys are leaving amazingly thoughtful comments more and more, and I really feel like I’m coming into my own more and more as a content creator/influencer/what have you. Exciting! Because of this, I thought it would be fun to dig through my analytics and see what your favorite posts of 2019 were. Not only does this help me see what kind of content you want to see MORE of, but it also fascinates me to see what resonates the most!

How to Pick Kitchen Cabinet Hardware

I am truly shocked that this is the #1 post! To me, this means that I need to share even more useful, nitty gritty posts about how I make design decisions for our home. Also, I think you guys liked this post because I also shared actual product recommendations based on the tips I shared… then applied them to my own home! It’s one thing to offer design tips, but it’s an entirely different game when I take my own advice and show you how they work in real time.

Given just how long this kitchen project took, I am thrilled to see that you all responded so well to the reveal! I absolutely adore my new kitchen and have a lot of kitchen-related posts coming. This renovation has inspired me to get even more interested in cooking and food, so I am looking forward to sharing even more of that.

I’m always on the fence about sharing round up posts that are packed with affiliate links (but a girl’s gotta pay her bills!). I work really hard to brainstorm and plan round up posts that are for products that I myself need or that friends have requested. This one was suggested by a good friend and I’m so glad she asked! I’m going to share more round up posts like this in 2020, with specific product focuses.

The Craftsman House Makeover Reveal

Last, but not least is #10 and I am so happy you loved this makeover! I was worried it wouldn’t resonate as much because the project wasn’t in my own home. There are still so many projects to do in Sean’s dad’s house, too. Stay tuned for even more old home makeovers, before/after reveals, and a more traditional, approachable style.
