So 2018 is finally wrapping up, and we are so close to stepping into the new year, God willing! This is going to be my last post of the year, and I must say that I’m so proud of how far we’ve come together. When I decided to start taking my blogging a little more seriously, I set myself the target of posting a blog every Friday of the week. As challenging as that was, it surely kept me inspired and on my toes! 26 blog posts later, I am stoked at the progress of my blog and I’m more than excited for what’s to come in the new year.
Some of my highlights of this year were receiving 746 views on one of my reflection posts – a milestone!! I received so much feedback on how relatable it was and several people even shared their personal going-back-home stories with me which filled me with joy.
Another blogging highlight came from the women who directly messaged me to tell me what an impact my big chop and natural hair journey had on them. Women who had used relaxers and chemicals to straighten their hair for years who told me that they had decided to stop and embrace what God gave to them naturally. It was amazing! My mum and sister shortly also hopped on the bandwagon and chopped their relaxed hair off, a big step for both of them. The mere fact that I inspired some people motivates me to keep on going and to step up my content in the coming year. You guys are all great and I look forward to reaching more milestones with you!
New Year Updates
I revealed on my Instagram story that I have some exciting plans for the new year! These are just a few of the things you can look out for from me:
- Silk Thoughts will now have its own Instagram page, so go ahead and like, and follow it please! I will be posting brief natural hair and other tutorial videos on this page, something which I have currently been unable to do since I don’t have (and honestly don’t wish to start) a YouTube channel. If you have any suggestions for what you would like to see, let me know in the comments or through the Contact page and I will gladly make it happen!
- White Wine Wednesday is a brand new relationship series which I will be posting up every second Wednesday of the month, beginning in January. It’s basically a time we can sit back, have a glass of wine, and chat about dating, and the different issues affecting relationships and friendships. Make sure you follow my blog to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the exciting series updates!
- I will be hosting a giveaway in February! Be on the lookout for this as I will post a blog with the instructions of the giveaway closer to when the time comes.
And that’s it from me beauties! Thank you for the wonderful year and I wish you a very prosperous 2019 free of negativity and filled with joy.
