I’ve had too many attempts to be active in blogging and posting on social media. Although I don’t post that often, I’m still happy and grateful for those who stick around & looked back to see which are the most popular blog posts that I published in 2019.
This year, I wrote about my life and experiences while living in Stockholm, my travels, my first midsummer celebration, and, basically, anything under the sun.
I also moved from Squarespace to WordPress, defined the purpose of my blog, and attempted to be active in blogging and social media. For a month or two, I uploaded more frequently on Instagram, but it wasn’t for me. Haha.
Anyway, I’m proud I published quite a lot of stories in 2019 and found mixed categories on my most popular blog posts!
The top 5 most popular blog posts that I published in 2019
1. US Tourist Visa Application Experience
When Miguel and I got our US tourist visa for 10 years, I felt the need to write about our experiences immediately! We have different circumstances and we also applied in different US embassies but our overall experience is the same.
In my US Tourist Visa Application Experience post, I shared what it’s like to apply for a US tourist visa in Manila and Stockholm. To be honest, applying for the US tourist visa is easier than a Schengen visa.
2. A Letter to the Most Annoying Person I Can’t Live Without
One of the most personal posts I’ve written. I’m thinking that a lot of people get redirected to this post because it’s a letter to the most annoying person… it’s either they want to read a letter to the actual annoying person, or they just want to read something romantic.
3. How to Start a Blog
My friends often ask me how to start a blog because they want to write for fun and document their travels. Blogging is not yet dead, people! I love reading blogs and while I enjoy watching YouTube videos, I sometimes prefer to read.
Starting a blog from scratch is very easy, and you don’t need to be so technical to start your own blog!
4. 11 Things I Love About Living with My Boyfriend
When Miguel visited me in Stockholm from the Philippines, we got the chance to live with each other for 3 months. We never lived together back home so this experience is totally new for both of us.
I enjoyed living with Miguel because we still have our own personal space and even if we’re together in one roof, we don’t necessarily have to talk to each other 24/7.
5. 10 iPhone Apps I Use Every Day
I’m happy that a lot of people enjoyed reading 10 iPhone Apps I Use Every Day! I’m one of those people who cannot live without a phone! I literally do almost everything on my phone so you will rarely see me not holding my phone.
#1 on the list is my favorite because it automatically categorizes everything for me and it gives me a weekly, monthly and yearly overview!
And those are my most popular blog posts of 2019. I also like how my old posts are still on top of the list! Some posts were published way, way back in 2016, but it’s still one of the most-visited posts.
I keep everything updated as much as I can so thank you for still referring to my blog posts. ❤️ 2020 is another chapter and a lot is going to happen. I cannot wait to share it with you.
Thank you for sticking around in 2019!
I want to get to know YOU!
