A 2017 roundup.

2017 was quite the year for this little corner of the internet.

I started taking it a lot more seriously, though there is definitely still room for improvement, and finally found a route I am happy to go down on, with a little help from the ever so lovely Vix Meldrew (who, by the way, is offering working lunches and photoshoots, and I would highly recommend taking that opportunity if you feel a bit stuck with your blog!). I changed from Blogger to WordPress (thanks to Phil from pipdig, who was an absolute blog-saver on more than one occasion), bought a proper domain and am promoting my blog and its posts a lot more openly. I can’t wait to show you what I have in mind for 2018.

Thank you to everyone who has ever read a blog post, commented on it, showed some love on social media and just generally encouraged me to keep going. Thank you to those of you who took time out of their days to send me private messages about how one post or another helped you – you will never know just how much this means to me. You are the reason why I will never give up on sharing my thoughts and feelings on here. Thank you.

Let’s look back on the last 365 days of lisakristinx.
