With this year coming to an end I find myself in a rather reflective mood. And looking back on my 2017 blogging ventures is easy because it was a big year for the old blog!
I switched my site to self-hosted this year, I committed to a posting schedule, I started to work with brands, I wrote an e-book. Woah, what a year! I have learned so much about blogging, writing, collaborations, working with brands, marketing, and problem-solving.
It has been a stressful and fun 2017 with lots of planning and creativity. And the reward is the wonderful feedback I have received from anyone who has stopped by and took the time to read something I have created. There is really nothing sweeter.
To end this blogging year off right I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my all-star posts of 2017. These are the posts that were shared and viewed the most and I am very proud of how they turned out.
If you are wondering what posts you should read on this site, I would certainly start with these ones. Please let me know what you think. And as always share any suggestions with me in the comments on what you would like to see on scaleitsimple in the future.
Happy new year.

An ode to my former apartment. I moved out in October of this year and wanted to share my feels and some memories from my first bachelorette pad. I am happy that I wrote this while memories of my apartment were still fresh in my mind and was glad to be able to share a little of myself with you all.
