2017: A Year Of Blogging

Hello Everyone!

I can’t believe it! This is my last post of 2017 guys!!! Knowing that makes me feel half excited for the year of blogging to come and half sad that this year is ending. However, today I am going to be talking about the past year and what it’s meant for my blog.

Mood Board

This year has been a bit crazy for me in my day-to-day life; I took two of my GCSEs and started seriously studying for the next three/four. I’ve been through some tough times with friends and had to finally stand up for myself. I also feel that I have come quite far in terms of my confidence. All of this has reflected it’s self onto my blogging and for the first part of 2017 I, sadly, did not blog as much as I wanted to.


This year saw 27 blog posts and the start of an actual regular (or supposedly regular) posting schedule. I discovered the Schedule Blog Post function and boy! has it saved my life 🙂

As well as that, 2017 saw me crumbling and putting on hold (abandoning) the original content plan for StableStoreys.

*Due to my current life situation, I have not had time to pick up my models for so long and as much as it pains me, I don’t think that is going to change for quite a few months. I want to continue my model hobby, but it may become a smaller part of my life. There is no way I’m going to stop blogging because I love it to bits but I just don’t have the copious amounts of time that I used to. Especially seeing as I am aiming to go to college.*

In total 8 posts from this year could be said to be on topic. The rest branched of into other areas such as lifestyle, personal thoughts and feelings and so on. I say this as though it’s a bad thing but I’m not sure. What do you all think?

A very big thing that happened this year was my collaboration with Tabi. That was so much fun, she is such a lovely person and the experience really inspired me to do more stuff like that.

Step Out in Style!

Also 2017 awarded me with two nominations for the Blogger Recognition Award and the Leibster Award, all thanks to the amazing filliefanatic and Pegasus Expert.


In terms of followers, views, likes and comments, StableStoreys has… well. See for yourself:

  • Views: 1,572
  • Likes: 136
  • Comments: 144

StableStoreys has been viewed from 28 countries around the world and gained 27 followers in just one year.

I am insanely grateful for the above stats and I put most of it down to my collab with Tabi as she has so many followers sooo… But yeah, I can’t believe it and when I saw all the different countries that have looked at my blog I was literally blown away.

Of course, StableStoreys also ”celebrated” it’s two-year anniversary this year and the fact that in month or so it will be the 3 year anniversary makes me so excited!

Although 2017 has had its ups and downs for my personal life and for StableStoreys and my blogging life, I am proud of what I and this blog have managed to accomplish and very proud of this months’ posts 😉

The comments that I get are always so lovely and all of my followers are wonderful. Although I don’t blog to get likes or follows, every single one never fails to make me smile and to be part of a world, that a few years ago, I didn’t know existed, means a lot to me.

No matter what happens to StableStoreys in the future, I will not stop blogging. It is one of the few things that I love and feel strongly about.

Thankyou all for taking time to like or comment on my posts and to all of my followers: I love you!

I hope you have a wonderful New Years celebration and that 2018 is full of happiness and greatness.

Happy New Year!!!


See ya all in 2018!
