TOP POSTS | My 5 most popular blog posts

top 5 viewed posts

I’ve officially been blogging for almost 10 months and have 600 followers! I can’t believe it… I had to triple count those two numbers. It seems like I just started blogging yesterday and the boyfriend and roommate were my only (forced) followers :)

To celebrate this exciting milestone I thought it would be fun to see how things have changed from then to now! For example… this was the first image ever posted on Anchored to Sunshine (sad, I know).

Yeah, since then my photography skills have greatly improved (but don’t get me wrong, I have SO MUCH MORE room for improvement… hint hint the new camera I’m looking for)

With every new post I learn a bit more about my followers (YOU!) and what you like to read.

Here are the top 5 posts that have received the highest number of views:

1. THREE INGREDIENTS | Crock-pot Sriracha BBQ chicken

2. BOOK REVIEW | Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

3. SAY YES | June Adventure Birchbox

4. BOOK CLUB | The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain

5. HOLIDAY GIFT | Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Lady watch

Now I want to hear from you (all 600 of you)! Let me know what you like to read on Anchored to Sunshine. I would love to know if you prefer recipes over book reviews, or local DC posts over life hacks…. etc., etc. All feedback is greatly appreciated :)

Thank you for all of your love and support over these last 10 months and I look forward to all the new things this blog has coming. Happy hump day, everyone!

    Yay! It’s so neat to see how we evolve as bloggers. I shake my head at some of my first posts and photos, haha. But, that’s the beauty of it – we can physically see our growth and it gives us something to be proud of! Congrats on 10 months…a year will be here before you know it! :)
