Blogging in 2014




Just a few of my favourite photos from the blog this year.

Statistically, my blog has improved loads in 2014, especially in the last few months. In October I got the most amount of page views in a month ever, and then I went onto smash that in November and again for December (and December isn't even over yet). I put so much more effort and thought into my posts this year - I blogged more passionately than ever and made schedules each month from about July onwards. Six posts from 2014 are now in my top ten viewed posts so I thought I'd share those posts here with you!

This is now the most viewed ever post on this lil blog here! I wrote it at the start of November after reading Louise's post about it, although she was praising it and saying it's great and body positive, she even wrote out the full lyrics which is how I picked out what's totally wrong about it. And it's something that I hadn't noticed any other blogger write about, despite the many posts on how much they hated it.

I haven't seen another post like this before, contact lenses aren't really something that comes up in conversation, at least not in interesting conversations! There are certain things though that can be frustrating for us lesser-sighted beings, what else can we do but laugh!

Rather unusual and stand out leggings from Black Milk. Leggings like this can be hard to style, now that it's winter I wear my leggings with lots of layers and huge huge baggy sweaters.

Blogging becomes cool
I noticed that people I knew, not through blogging, were all starting their own blogs. And while I am totally supportive of my friends having a go, I won't forget when blogging wasn't cool and how people made fun of that. In this post I just comment on how people seem to "forget" that they've made fun of certain hobbies when said hobby becomes a trend, this applies to everything out there really.

Art || developing style
I braved it and posted some more of my art from recently! Only little sketches and pen drawings. I've been trying out new things this year and figuring out what works for me, which I talk about in this post.

There are so many more posts I am proud of that I want to talk about but I don't want to overload this post! I really pushed myself the last few months, I figured things out. My photography has improved and so has my writing and I braved it and started writing about things I feel much more strongly about as well as happy things in life and clothes! I hope you enjoyed reading amber love in 2014, if you've been here all year or are new, I love you all, like I actually do I'm not even just saying that! I've had some great chats with you, got to know some of you really quite well! Now if I could just meet you all in person, we'll have some cuddles, some a lot of wine and chat even more! And if there's anything you'd like to see more of here please don't hesitate to let me know! Big love! xo
