2020 Top Five
I'm rounding up this year's top five most popular blog posts & Instagram posts, as well as your most purchased products and Amazon items... + sharing my top five personal favorite things as well!
2020’s Top 5 Everything
In these next two weeks (the last of this year and the first of the new year!) I generally do a lot of looking back, recapping, and reflecting. It’s how I finish out the year, evaluate what worked and what could have gone better, and set my goals and intentions for the year to come.
I’m already pretty meticulous about recapping things (I have weekly and monthly recaps that I already do, which I definitely learned from my corporate role), but it’s always really fun and extra interesting to examine everything from a year-long perspective. Therefore I always look into my analytics on the backend of my site, Instagram, and affiliate networks, etc. and round up the most popular, purchased, and loved products and topics!
I honestly find this so interesting and this year I thought you might as well, so I rounded up some key insights in this post! It’s very top level and light (I won’t bore you with my YOY percentage increases or anything 😊 ), but with just looking at the below information, here’s what you can take away…
Your favorite blog posts of mine are personal life updates, product reviews, and dedicated pages where I link up a ton of items. Your favorite Instagram posts of mine are also personal life updates (especially ones that relate to my family/home!) and bathingsuit roundups (lol). You purchase the most from J. Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, and Etsy (with masks being a standout product), and from Amazon you like my beauty and book recommendations best!
Looking at my top five personal favorite items of the year (the things I used and loved the most!), it looks like I focused on self care products this year way more than I ever have before, and I tried to make WFH life as cozy and joyful as possible. 😊
Does this sound about right?! Scroll through the below links for the full rundown! xx
