As the year comes to a close, I'm sharing with you the most popular posts I've written on my blog in the year of 2017. It's time for the end-of-the-year in review post. It's time for the cream of the crop.
O-My-God. And by O-My-God, I mean, O-MY-GOD !!! I can't believe 2017 is (nearly) over. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and you're getting some rest before big New Year celebration. Whoo-hoo 2018 here we come!!!
For me, 2017 was one hectic-crazy-amazing year, full of challenges and new exciting things - in personal and in business terms. It was a year filled with wonderful family moments, love, health (above all and so important) and happiness. It was a year of big change for us. We moved to the big city which was a huge deal for us, and something we planned for a long time. We are now closer to my family that I've missed so much. My mom is bursting with joy and enjoys every minute spent with her grandson and we adopted to new city life fast and we love it. It was also a year of great friendship moments - with my RL friends and virtual ones - y'all.
In 2017 I seriously committed myself to blogging. Since summer I'm officially a full-time blogger. I worked hard this year (sometimes even overdoing it), cooked a lot of healthy meals (and by a lot I mean A LOT). I've learned a bunch new blog-related stuff (I'm starting to sound super techie).
The most exciting thing for me this year (besides moving) was publishing my first cookbook - Healthy Christmas Cookies. I committed my time and poured a lot of energy into it and feedback was AMAZING! I didn't expect such a HUGE success. It gave me a boost, and I'm really thankful for this experience.
The first oh-so-delicious recipe that I shared in 2017 was Orange Carrot Persimmon Smoothie, and you guys LOVE IT. In 2017, Natalie's Health reached 2 million+ page views, following with almost 20.000 fans on Facebook. My motivational posts inspire more than 100.000+ people a month, and my recipes were published on some of popular portals: PureWow, Men's Fitness, HuffPost, PARADE Magazine, ELLE.
The most popular recipe Lemon Turmeric Energy Balls reached 400.000+ views. All this, I mean, WOW!!! I'm overwhelmed and soooo grateful. I'm pouring so much love into my blog, into creating recipes as well as writing about a healthy lifestyle. It is my true passion, and I'm happy to see that my energy and enthusiasm reaches you. For all your love-back, I give you one big THANK YOU!
