Back in the day, when I was starting out in childcare, I was a nanny for three boys all under the age of five. At the time, Elsa was but an imagined icicle and the closest we had to Minions were the insides of Kinder Surprise eggs!
Instead, the animated heroes for the two oldest boys were a cowboy and an astronaut, with the middle child frequently leaping off sofas to the cries of ‘Finity Bond!’
So as we head light-speed towards the end of the year, what’s in store for 2016 and ‘finity bond’ for Aloada Bobbins? Well, I’ve consulted the crystals, sloshed around some tea leaves and shuffled the decks and they all point to one thing: Nobody knows!
My little break over Christmas has told me that whilst having a schedule was beneficial in organising my thoughts, it was equally as restricting. Not feeling like I HAD to post has been great, plus I don’t want to run out of things to say (unlikely with how much I babble, but…!)
So for 2016, I’ve decided that if I post a recipe or about photography, they will still go out on their respective days (Monday Munchies / Wednesday Lensday) with the weekend being left for more random posts. However, I may not post all three every week. Then again I might.
But what would you, as my wonderful readers, like to see more of on the Bobbins? Guest posts? Reviews? A vlog?
Maybe you already like the format and just want more of the same but as much as I value and appreciate your interactions 😀 ❤ I also value your opinions. So any suggestions are welcome!
The end of the year seems to signify an obligatory ‘best of’ line-up (yes I know I’ve only been blogging for 6 months) so I was happy to see on other blogs that WordPress had helpfully collated all figures into an infographic to post.
Well, let’s just say that when I received my email, I was less than impressed. It was naff – in fact it was nearly as boring (and impersonal) as the Facebook ‘Year in Review‘ which seemed to indicate the only things I’m interested in are Game of Thrones, cake and afternoon tea.
Okay, okay, Facebook knows me pretty well…
It shows your top five posts based on views but that doesn’t mean likes and as far as I’m concerned, likes and comments are much more important to show whether a post is popular. As I’ve said before, statistics are like a bikini…
Weirdly, my most viewed post is also one of those with the least likes (I don’t think it’s that bad!) So, I’m flipping the review on its head with the underdogs: here are a few that time (and the blogosphere) forgot!
My FIRST EVER post!
Spiffing pots of scrumptious-ness!
Always looked at, never loved…my top VIEWED post.
Everyone has a favourite CANNIBAL..right?
Being locked up has never been so much fun!
BEE nice, BEE kind
Book, game, TV, film, theatre – a set of reviews!
That just leaves me to wish each and every one of you a fabulous New Year’s Eve and massive thanks to everyone (readers, followers, commenters, bloggy lovely friends!) who has helped kick start my blogging journey in a myriad of ways!
See you next year folks after I’ve chased the fireworks around the globe. Here’s to a healthy and happy 2016 and to learning to be thankful for what we have.
To FINITY BOND!
