2015 in Blogging Tips, Tricks and Discussions

2015 is fast coming to a close, and never has there been a better time to reflect on the last years offerings, seeing what you've managed to achieve, and what you maybe need to make more time, effort and umph into next year. I've seen my blogging direction change dramatically this year in terms of content, design and what I want in the future, not only by seeing the signs and dropping my book blogging label, but by seeing how a cohesive design has managed to help forge a brand out of absolute nothing, and I'm nothing more than proud.

However, I've seen a lot of new visitors, followers and readers check out Nellie and Co. in the last few months, people who may have never seen or read some of my older content, and there's never a good reason not to promote your own content, especially not at this time of the year, so today, I'm taking you through 2015 by sharing every blog related posts I've written this year, right up to my Free Goal Planner.

You can really see when and how my blogs direction changed, and there's nothing wrong with that, I found what I love talking about most, and I'll always talk about books every now and again, but you can at this point see where Nellie and Co. is headed next year, and hopefully there'll be bigger and better things to come when we do this next year.
