My Most Popular Posts Of 2015

Since we're rapidly nearing the end of 2015, I thought it'd be nice to have a little look back on some of my most popular posts from the past year and share them with you guys. I've kind of lost my blogging mojo over the past few months so reflecting back on the posts that 'did well' was a nice way of reminding myself that I can write decent-ish posts if I actually put my mind to it - and it's also made me want to try and top them in 2016!

 Here's my top 5 most popular posts of 2015 (based on page views)...

1. Soap & Glory Archery D-I-Y Brow Bar Review
As I'm a lifestyle blogger, I find it weird that this is my most popular post of 2015 - a review of the Soap and Glory Archery brow bar. The photography is so bad haha but this was like 9 months ago so cut me some slack, yeah? The only reason I can think of, for why this post has so many views, is purely because it was one of the first reviews of this product - as I did this post pretty much as soon as the product came out. It also comes up on the first page of google when you type in the product name so the views just constantly tick over. Not bad for an SEO noob like me, eh?

2. How To Treat Yo'Self Even When You're Broke
This was definitely one of my favourite posts to write as I love doing posts that are actually helpful and useful to others. Cashback sites, survey sites and discount codes are just a way of life for me as I'm such a bargain hunter but I know not everyone knows about them. So, this was just a way for me to share with you how I manage to treat myself to a little luxury each month - even if I'm trying to tighten the purse strings! I was also really happy with the photo in this post as it's so white and bright (saddo, I know).

3. When You're Too Busy To Blog
I remember writing this post on a bit of a whim when I was (yep, you guessed it) too busy to blog. It just contains a few tips and tricks for when you don't necessarily have time to write a post but you want to make sure your views are still ticking over nicely and people don't forget you actually exist.

4. 14 Reasons I'm Crap At Being An Adult
I think this is probably my favourite post I've ever written so I'm really glad it went down so well! It's basically just a list of all the ways I suck at adulting complete with lots of gifs for your entertainment. 4 months on and not much has changed to be honest. Still failing at adulting. Still wondering wtf I'm doing with my life...

5. 10 Ways To Utilise Twitter For Blogging
I think this was one of my first sort of 'blogging advice' posts which, to be honest, I'm always a little wary of doing as I know I'm hardly a pro blogger so feel a bit of a tit giving advice to others. But, you lot seemed to like it so I guess it must have been of some use! Back when I wasn't a lazy blogger I used to utilise twitter loads for blogging purposes and it really worked - I definitely need to work on this again in the new year as it honestly did wonders for my stats.

I hope you enjoyed this little round up! What are your favourite kind of posts to read?
