My Favorite Posts of 2016

I hope that the first Monday of 2017 greets with you a little more optimism than a typical Monday can bring. As I mentioned in my last couple of posts, I wanted to begin the year with a bit of reflecting before sharing my goals for the year to come. In all honesty, when reflecting on blogging, I have an excuse to read back through all of the posts I've written for the year. After making a compilation of my favorite posts last year I just knew that I wanted to do another one this year.

Before I dive into that I want to take a moment to thank each of you for making Prep In Your Step a part of your 2016 and now your 2017. It's so crazy to think back to when I started blogging five years ago and see how much I've grown and in turn PIYS has too. While oftentimes I feel like I can get caught up in comparing myself to other bloggers who may seem more successful despite having blogged for a shorter amount of time, I am reminded of how cool it is to have a platform and people to share my ideas and life with. I am so thankful for each of you and your support, comments, and loyalty. Just like it was in high school, Prep In Your Step has remained that creative outlet that I crave coming back to each day. And while I'd like to think I'd be doing it regardless of whether or not people stuck around to read y'all being here makes it that much more exciting to hit publish on posts.

I tried to narrow down my favorites to one post per month but indecision got the best of me during a few months, and I just couldn't choose a favorite. That's a good problem to have if you ask me!













I shared My Favorite Posts of 2015 here so feel free to look back at those as well especially if you're newer to Prep In Your Step. Also, according to Google Analytics my top five most viewed posts of this year were:

  3. I just published a piece on how to have a great semester. The tassel bag is adorable. I love your what I learned in ___ posts. Your guide makes me excited for when I visit Greenville. I constantly drive through it on road trips. I would love to see what the city has to offer. You inspired me to get a Day Designer. I love it. Hearing about how you slept in a tent for charity was amazing. I can't wait to see what this year will bring for Prep in Your Step.

  4. Happy new year! I love your blog and can't wait to see what you will do in 2017!
