As another year draws to a close, it’s a time of reflection about the accomplishments and challenges that punctuated 2016.
Thank you for joining me on my blogging journey since 2010!
I look forward to sharing more swatches, reviews, and sprinklings of humour in the coming year. I’m excited to plan new goals for 2017 and to see where the ongoing adventure goes!
Because of the support and encouragement from readers like you, I am happy to say that a lot of my blogging dreams have come true in ways that I never imagined! Thank you so much for visiting and for leaving comments.
I have learned a lot from all of you, and I hope that Swatch And Learn has become a place on the internet that provides you with a little sunshine, especially on those difficult days! *Hug* Together, let’s continue to improve and grow while sharing our passion for nail polish. 🙂
If you’re addicted to Instagram like I am, you no doubt have seen the trend of posting the #2016BestNine collage, which depicts an Instagram user’s nine most-popular images based on the number of likes.
Above is the collage generated by the 2016 Best Nine website, which shows my most-liked images on Instagram.
I am so honoured that, in 2016, I received 59,935 likes on my Instagram!
Also, for my Pinterest for 2016:
- 1,616,971 people saw my pins
- 10,422 people saved my pins to their boards
- 6,170 people clicked my pins
It really floors me, and I’m so pleased that you have been enjoying my photos!
In this post, check out the links. They’ll lead you to the reviews and/or swatches that I published on here earlier, in case you want more information and details about a certain nail polish.
