My 2018 Highlights

My 2018 Highlights
What a year 2018 was! Personally, I didn't think I grew any in 2018 so I started thinking of highlights throughout the year that may have happened on my blog. So, since everyone is sharing their highlights from 2018 I wanted to share my blog highlights with you all today.

BT21 plush crochet series
It was Blogmas 2017 that I published the BT21 Van plush crochet pattern. Every month in 2018 I published a new BT21 character plush pattern and successfully completed the series in July! BT21 was really big in 2018 so my BT21 crochet patterns were some of my most popular posts in 2018. You can check out all of the patterns here.

Fell in love with crocheting again
Can you believe that I've been crocheting for almost 10 years? There were some years where I didn't even pick up my crochet hook but in 2018 I was able to publish 2 patterns each month! Because of this, my love for crochet has rekindled. I even managed to combine my love for K-pop in a few patterns and started a fan stick series because of it! I don't think I've ever been this in love with crochet since I started crocheting.

Started a new fitness journey
Around late summer, I started a new workout routine. The workouts are quick yet effective. Not only that, but I also feel strong, toned, and look forward to my workouts every day.

Started a Patreon
In November, I started a Patreon! I follow a lot of artists on Patreon and it looked like so much fun sharing exclusive monthly projects so I decided to join in on the fun and start my own page. I'm still pretty new but my goal is to grow my Patreon this year because I have so many ideas that I want to bring to life.

MooeysCrochet Instagram
I don't remember why I started a second Instagram account but in 2018 I decided to turn it into MooeysCrochet, a crochet IG where I share everything about crochet. It's grown so much in just a couple of months so I can't wait to see how much it grows in 2019!

Listened to podcasts
Podcasts were a huge part of 2018 for me. I discovered so many new podcasts that I actively listen to now. Even though I'm more of a visual person I don't like watching things as much I like hearing them. haha

Started a Hobonichi and Travelers Journal
After watching Rainbowholic videos for so long I finally decided to start kawaii journaling in a Hobonichi and Travelers notebook. I plan on using these a lot more in 2019 so you can expect more kawaii planning this year.

Made new friends
Another one of my 2018 goals was to share a bit of my personal side to you guys. I'm not an open book and like to keep a lot to myself but thanks to blogging I've managed to make some lovely friends online who I share similar interest with. If you ever feel like chatting with me feel free to message me on Twitter or Instagram, I promise I don't bite! haha

Updated my Etsy shop
I updated my Etsy shop a few times in 2018 which was one of my goals for 2018 so I'm really happy that I was able to complete that. I even posted some 'made to order' listings in my shop which I plan to do more of in 2019.

Completed Blogtober and Blogmas
In 2018 I participated in both Blogtober and Blogmas. Even though it was my last year doing Blogmas I'm really happy that I was able to complete it because I almost gave up a few times.

What were some of your highlights in 2018?
