Celebrating New Year’s Eve last night…

Please let me know in the comments if there is anything in particular you’d like to see more of here on G&G. I’m going to get off my you-know-whatty and try to make it happen!

    Happy New Year, Vahni!

    I really loved your personal posts this past year! My favorite ones were on your tinnitus and being in your 40s.

      Hi sweets! Thank you. Will try to do more outfit posts in 2014. I think I’m kind of scarred seeing so many cheesy fashion blogger OOTD photos…I almost feel I’ve outgrown it. But I will try!

    Hey V,

    Happy New Year hope you have a good one. I’ve gone through your archive from this last year and pulled out some of my favourite posts. No surprise that there’s plenty to choose from as your probably my fave blogger. I can’t put my finger on why but everything on your blog seems a perfect balance theres never too much of one type of post but just enough to wet the appetite. I didn’t mind either that your post frequency slowed down in the second half of the year as it just made me look forward to each one a little more.

    But anyway I hope this works, this is some of my favourite content from you over the last 12 months:

    The Personal:

    This is Middle Age
    The Journey to Self Acceptance Series

    The Fashion:

    Are You A Heels Kinda Girl?
    Aussie Bloggers Do It Best

    The Health:

    Strong is the New Skinny
    Stepping Away From The Scale


    10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Be a Pro Blogger
    Responding To Comments: Why it Matters
    Tips for Balancing Social Media and Your Relationships

    And finally the deadly sins series which I didn’t know where to put 🙂

    Also just realised this will be your 9th year blogging, which is a huge achievement! Just the other day I was clicking through my old posts and checking out comments left on there. When I clicked through on to a lot of their blogs most had either given up or just slowed down to one post every six months.

    Keep up the good work!

      Wow, Arash, thank you so much for the time you put into this comment, and for the feedback! I’ve actually been at it 8 years, but I will take the congrats because as you said, a lot of bloggers bail after a year or two. I never thought I’d be at it this long, believe me! It’s been a ton of work, but it’s my baby, and I can’t just quit it!

      I love that the posts you chose are most of my personal faves too, and that they are more editorial than pictorial. Most of the ones you chose took me hours and hours to write, but the fact that they resonated not just with you, but many others, means it’s all worth it. I will endeavor to bring you all more depth, more of my discoveries, more of what we both like to see here on G&G.

      Now I’m over to your blog to say Happy 2014!
