I published 94 blog posts in 2021. That is something I am proud of, esp. considering that I had 3 months when I published almost nothing. Those were March and April when my right arm was in a giant cast after breaking my wrist, and July when we moved into our new apartment.
Having blogged here now for over 11 years, I still enjoy it immensely. Blogging has obviously changed much over the years, but I love the creative process. I just wish I was a bit more strategic … But that is one of my goals for 2022.
When it comes to what you like to read here, it seems that personal posts are very popular. But the favorite posts over all the years turn out to be mostly recipes, which I find interesting.
For the new year I have already started to set up a proper content calendar. Now it is up to me to stick to it and prepare posts a little more in advance. That will be particularly important for the time when the baby is born and all “new” because I have really no idea what life will be like with her then.
In any case, I hope you also join me on this journey to motherhood and whatever other surprises this new year has in store for us.
