My Yearly Recap: 2022

Happy New Year to my Komal Means Delicate Lovelies! 

Another year has flown by and I am in awe of how quickly it has gone.  This past year has had many ups and downs for me but I kept my spirit high.  At the beginning of each year, I like to reflect on the pros and cons of the previous year.  This reflection exercises me to focus on what type of posts to write about and set goals for my blog.  I have done this each year and noticed that it does indeed help me focus to grow and better my blog for the next year.  If you are curious and/or need some inspiration, check out previous year’s recaps:  2018 Recap, 2019 Recap, 2020 Recap, and 2021 Recap.  Anyway, let us get into my yearly recap for 2022 below!

January

Pros

Cons

February

Pros

  • For the first time, I was able to batch posts on my blog from February 2022- March 2022
    • It felt nice not to have to rush each post and have time at night to do other things.
  • Did my annual Winter Blues post and it performed well
  • Went back to Crosstown Concourse to shoot content and it performed well

Cons

  • By batching my Instagram posts and my blog posts, I still did not manage my time right.
    • Thus, fell behind on other blog tasks; i.e. emails, pitching and working with brands/other bloggers.


March

Pros

Cons

April

  • Most diverse type of blog posts in a month (Fall, Birthday, Diwali, Halloween) and they all performed well

Cons

  • Didn’t have time to shoot for November’s content due to a busy social calendar


November

Pros

Cons

  • Used old/mismatch of pictures thus, Instagram & Blog looked a bit off

December

Pros

  • The holiday content looked amazing on my Instagram
  • Took two weeks off at the end of the month and felt refreshed to create new content

Cons

  • Taking the time off  of the blog and Instagram has affected my views


And that is a wrap of the Yearly Recap for 2022, for my blog!  In conclusion, I believe it was a good year for my blog despite all the ups and downs.  I also had some bigger goals that I wanted to accomplish this year however, I am manifesting those goals for 2023! 

Do you always meet your yearly goals or push them for the following year?

Thank you for tagging along for the past four years of my blogging journey.  I hope to bring more success in the years to come.

Much love,
