My Favorite KUWC Post of 2017

My Favorite KUWC Post of 2017

Happy New Year!!!

It’s been a little over a year since I started Keeping Up With Candy (November 2016) and I must say it’s been a complete joy! I’ve had some hits and misses and I’m sure there will be many more in 2018. In spite of it all, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Blogging is very fulfilling for me and I definitely enjoy the engagement with all of you. 😍

I have many things planned for 2018…one being upgrading the blog layout some time this month. So definitely be on the lookout for that. I also plan on incorporating more Travel, Home, Beauty, and Food & Drink posts. And then there will be a few giveaways here on the blog as well as on Instagram (make sure you’re following me here). If you’re receiving my newsletter, you wont miss a thing! So be on the lookout for all of it!

Today, I am sharing some of my favorite posts from 2017 (a couple from 2016). Because KUWC is a fairly new blog, I’m sure some of you probably haven’t seen a lot of my earlier posts. So take a few minutes to peruse through them. And I’d love to know what you think.

As mentioned earlier, I will be adding more posts in the travel, food, home, and beauty categories (all categories listed at the top of this page!), and I’ve found that the home, travel, food and personal/lifestyle posts are some of my favorite to write.  I want to be sure I’m creating content that interests you guys…making it worth taking the time to visit. I know there are so many blogs out there now, so it means a lot to me that you take the time to visit KUWC.

If there is any area of KUWC you would like to see more of from these categories or any specific posts you’d love to see, I’d love your feedback! I had a reader message me she would love to see the rest of my home, so I’m going to be working on that post some time this early spring.

You are the reason my blog has grown the way it has in such a short amount of time. Hopefully by the end of the year it will turn into my full-time gig. So it’s incredibly important to me that you find this content relevant and helpful. Thank you so much for your support, kindness and feedback. I absolutely appreciate you. I am so excited to start this year with fresh ideas and hopefully more of what you want to see!

Thanks so much for reading! I love having you here. And as always, have a beautiful day!

XOXO, Candy

    Pecan Pie bread pudding: say no more! Also, save the ends of bread in a freezer bag for future bread pudding ( i know you aren’t a fan—but in case you need more pecan pie bread pudding). I love your recap—great way to garner interest. I always love a good home styling post! Also, affordable wardrobe capsules.
