I took this template from last year’s post to compare my progress from this year. I’m so thankful for what God has done through this blog and how I’ve grown as a writer. Thank you for all your support!
This year, people from fifty-five different countries have viewed my blog. I’ve always said that I wanted to be a world traveler, and it seems that my writing is doing that for me! Glory to God! Here are the top ten countries that have viewed my blog in 2018:
- United States
- United Kingdom
- South Africa
If you are from those countries or are residing in any of those countries, thank you reading! I pray that my blog has been able to help you overcome anxiety, put God first in your marriage, or dig deeper into His Word.
In terms of views, here are the top ten blog posts of 2018:
- Divorce (In Friendships) is Not an Option
In my marriage, divorce is not an option. We don’t even joke about it. What would it look like for us to fight for our friendships instead of cutting them off?
- Struggles in Marriage
Marriage is hard, but it’s not impossible. What do you do when you’re going through a difficult season with your spouse?
- Dealing with Your Feelings
If you don’t control your feelings, your feelings will control you. Instead of ignoring your feelings, learn to deal with them.
- Your Spouse’s Spiritual Journey
The Bible says not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers. Does that mean I should always be on the same level spiritually as my spouse?
- The Rings
What do our wedding rings symbolize?
- What IS the True Meaning of Christmas?
The true meaning of Christmas can get lost in the mix of everything. It’s really cool that this blog post was among my top read for the year, considering I just wrote it a couple of weeks ago!
- Travel is the Best Marriage Therapy In this post, I share an honest account of what happens when I travel with my husband!
- Decluttering and Anxiety (tie for 8th)
My word that I focused on this year was “declutter,” and in this post, I share why.
- Do it Scared (tie for 8th)
I read a book by Christy Wright that encouraged me to start my business even when I was scared. What is fear keeping you from doing?
- 1 Corinthians 13: Living up to the Vows
We read this chapter of the Bible at our wedding. But what does it actually mean to live out these verses in our marriage each day?
Thanks again for helping make 2018 a great year! I also want to say a special thank you to my ninety-two new followers. For those who have been following, please let me know in the comments how this blog has impacted you this year, or if you have any feedback about how I could improve my blog in 2019.
Honestly, my blog is where I want it to be now. I’ve got a pretty good schedule going, and my topics seem to be attracting people. My writing goals will most definitely involve my Christian dystopian novel, as well as promoting my business. In terms of my personal goals, my word for 2018 was “declutter,” and I cannot tell you how much cleaning I have done to answer this word! Not only have I donated and got rid of a bunch of stuff, but I’ve also decluttered my time, my diet, and my attitude. My apartment feels clean, and I’m at peace mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I’ll be sharing on Wednesday about my word for 2019!
Happy New Year, everyone! May God bless you abundantly in 2019.
