The Top Blog Posts of 2020

Happy New Year, can you believe that we're in 2021 already? How crazy is that! Although 2020 has been an unforgettable year, it was also the year that I started up my blog again. For that reason, it's been such a great year as I have loved watching my blog grow and becoming a part of the blogging community. However, I have definitely realised that running a blog is hard work and all bloggers work incredibly hard! There is so much more to a blog than just writing a post and publishing it. Bloggers have to juggle multiple social media sites, content creation, photography, SEO and so much more. I thought that seeing as 2020 has been an *interesting* year, to say the least, it's time to celebrate some of the amazing bloggers I know and who have been working hard all year with their top blog posts of 2020. Be sure to check their blogs and social media as they are all amazing people with incredible blogs!

A Girl with a View - 21 Things I've Learnt in 21 Years

I'm guessing if you're on this blog then you know who I am but if not, I'm Tash and A Girl with a View is a lifestyle, student, travel with a bit of everything thrown in for good measure blog. I thought I'd add my favourite post of the year as well though I struggled to decide what my favourite was of 2020. I think the post I wrote around my 21st has been one of my favourites. I loved spending the time to reflect over the last 21 years of my life and include some serious and funny things I've learnt along the way! I think it'll also be a good one to add to and look back on as the years go by and putting something more personal on my blog was something I really enjoyed doing too!

Wool of the King - Sculpture by the Lakes

My name is Lauren and I am the author behind Wool of the King. I’m also a third-year Communication and Media student at Bournemouth University. I love to write about all things travel, lifestyle and a little bit of everything over on my blog. My favourite post that I’ve written this year would have to be my Sculpture by the Lakes post. That’s because it was all about the first and only blogging event I’ve been to so far. I’m hoping to do a lot more like this when the coronavirus has died down a bit. Sculpture by the Lakes is a beautiful sculpture park in Dorset where I had the best time walking around and taking pictures for my blog.

Mind and Body Intertwined - Clean the Air in your Home

With my blog, Mind and Body Intertwined, I always try to help people by finding ways to make their mind and body healthier by them working together. Usually, the topics I write about are things that I've figured out that have helped me to find more balance in my life. What was special about this one, was that during research, I learned a lot myself. I found all kinds of new ways to implement things in that post into my own life. This was the first time I learned what a difference my blog can make for others. That feeling is what still motivates me to this day.


Teaspoon of Adventure - Falling in Love with Seville

I had such a hard time choosing my favourite blog post of 2020 and actually really enjoyed the opportunity to look through my year of posts. So many stuck out to me as either pivotal moments of the year or posts I just really enjoyed writing and sharing. But I went with this one, Falling in Love with Seville. Visiting Seville in February was one of my favourite travel experiences not only of the year but of my entire life. I completely fell in love with this little city in Spain's Andalusia and was so lucky to visit with my fiance, sister and brother. It was also one of the last trips we got to take before the pandemic shut things down, and one of the only times I've travelled with my siblings, so it's extra special. 

I loved writing this post where I could share not only my itinerary for Seville but my love for the city as well. Reading it transports me right back to that square in the old town, admiring the architecture and eating good food with my favourite people. I can't wait until we can make more memories like that again!

Female Original - 5 Ways to Find New Music (When You're Stuck in a Music Rut)

My favourite blog post that I’ve written this year is definitely my post about 5 Ways To Find  New Music (When You’re Stuck In A Music Rut). What made this such a special post for me was just how much time went into writing it. I wanted to write a post that I thought was really going to help people who were stuck in a music rut. It’s something that I think we’ve all experienced in the past…being stuck listening to the same songs over and over again with no idea how to shake things up and discover some new tunes. So I wanted to write a post that’d be a sort of ‘one-stop-shop’ for music discovery and that was going to actually really benefit anyone who found themselves lost when it came to finding new music. And I think I managed to achieve that with the post!

Female Original ( or F O ) is the award-nominated food & drink, music and lifestyle blog by Liverpool based 20-something, Faye. First beginning in 2017 as a hobby alongside  Faye’s studies in Fine Art at university, F O has developed into a source to discover something new across food, drink and music all in one place. Whether that be through sharing a new legendary artist in her ongoing music series ‘The Legend Slot’, or giving you the lowdown on a new organic red wine or a must-try cocktail recipe.

Life Through my Dark Brown Eyes - 7 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting a Blog

My favourite post of 2020 was definitely 7 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting A Blog. It’s a collaborative post with 10 other bloggers where we shared the things we wish we knew before starting a blog. From SEO to going self-hosted… everything that gives you a head start in the blogging world! I really wanted this to become a post with lots of useful tips for starting bloggers, so that they don’t make the same mistakes I did. The post is super long but really informative and I just love the way it turned out! 

My blog is called Life Through My Dark Brown Eyes and I mainly write about lifestyle, blogging and work life. I used to write about travel, mental health and recipes too, so you still might find some of these posts on my blog. I really want to provide useful information for bloggers who combine their blog with a 9-to-5, just like me, and show that the combination is possible! The lifestyle posts are mainly related to fun things to do outside of work.

In the Flux - 6 Reasons why People Should Ditch Dairy

Hi, I'm Payton! I run the blog In The Flux, a vegan + cruelty-free and personal development blog.
My blog went through a lot of changes this year. In 2020, I decided to focus on vegan and cruelty-free living, which is something I am so passionate about. I have been vegan and cruelty-free for 8 years, and I wanted to use my experience to help others live a more ethical lifestyle.

My favourite post that I did this year was on 6 reasons why people should ditch dairy. It was a very interesting topic to research, and I hope it gave some people inspiration to go dairy-free.

Bee Money Savvy - Sustainable Swaps

I’m Emma, the one-woman team that created Bee Money Savvy. I’m a 20-something, recent graduate and first homeowner. My motivation for creating Bee Money Savvy and blogging about money comes from my parents who worked hard to pay off the debt that they accumulated following some bad financial advice. I’ve spent my whole life admiring the money-saving mentality of my parents and want to share the money-saving tools and tips my family have learned on our journey to improving our finances.

My favourite post of this year is my sustainable swaps post! While I’m viewed predominantly as a money blogger, I’ve always been really interested in sustainability and finding ways to incorporate a sustainable lifestyle on a budget. In my ‘simple sustainable swaps’ post, I show the small changes that I have made to reduce the impact that I’m having on our wonderful planet. I hope that it encourages more people to start introducing sustainable habits into their lifestyle.

I'm Kayleigh from kayleighzaraa.com and 2020 has been a wild year for my blog, I write content on navigating life, and growing your blog. When Tash asked what my favourite blog post of the year was, it was really hard to pick.

But, it ultimately came down to my Blogging In 2020 And Why I Loathe It Post, blogging has some downsides and really I needed to vent about it. I ended up loving the post so much, and it's quickly become one of my most viewed posts.
