2014 Recap

blog recap 2014

Just like every other year around this time, I cannot believe that we are entering a new one, only in a few short days. 2014 was a great year, full of major changes and happy moments, but I’m ready to say goodbye, ready to welcome even better things and even happier moments in 2015.

Today I decided to have a little recap of my most popular posts published in 2014. My passion for blogging grew even stronger this past year. I started blogging on a much more regular basis, met some amazing people and even got to work with one of my favorite brands: Asos.

One of my personal favorite posts this year was the “5 Things to Tell Yourself When Feeling Down” post. I’ve received so many lovely comments and messages after publishing it, and I have to say that it felt pretty awesome to have written something that so many of you found helpful!

As Thirteen Thoughts celebrated its second birthday back in September, I held a Photography-themed week, which turned out to be quite a success. I always get asked in emails, Instagram and blog comments from other bloggers about my photography setup, equipment, etc. and because my photography posts were so well received, I’ve decided to make Photography a permanent category on the blog.

 This year I also finally worked up some courage to shoot some OOTD posts. Even though I only published two, I’m still very happy about that as It was something that I’ve always wanted to do. I had so much fun working on these, I can assure you that you’ll be seeing a lot more fashion and style related posts on the blog this coming year.
