A Year in the Life of A Cornish Geek

Yesterday I reflected on my 2017 goals and today I want to focus more on the blogging side of things.

Last week I sent out an email to all of the brands I’ve worked with this year, thanking them for supporting the blog and giving them a heads up about what to expect in 2018. I also thought they’d be interested to see what blog posts have been the most popular this year. Curious? Check them out:

I made an unconscious move this year to focus more on books and stationery – and you can expect to see more of the same next year. But I’m still passionate about lifestyle posts and they can be my favourite to write. Here’s a look at ten posts I’m particularly proud of:

As for 2018, I don’t want to give everything away, but I’m hoping that 2018’s National Stationery Week coverage will be my biggest yet (I’m even booking the week off work!) and I’ll be launching my first 12 Days of Christmas giveaways, as well as celebrating other nerdy events throughout the year.
