Best of 2016!

With 2016 coming to an end, I did a look back to see what my most popular videos made in 2016 were.  Interestingly enough, 8 out of my top 10 viewed videos this year were videos made in 2013-2015.  The top being my Meal Prep/Freezer Meals video from 2015.  This year had so many great moments, and I am so happy I was able to share them all with you!

#10... Weekly Vlog #6
The Weekly Vlog was a new addition to my channel this year, and I am so happy I took the risk to try it.  I love vlogging a bit of each day, and then sharing it with you on Monday mornings.  The weekly vlogs will all be back in 2017, starting Monday January 2nd @7am EST.

#9... Weekly Vlog #3

#8... I Am Never This Productive
This particular DITL did very well.  I am guessing it is because the title is attracting.  Click Bait is something I avoid, however having an enticing title always helps videos keep a lasting impression.

#7... Breakfast Freezer Meals
From any feedback I get, recipe videos/cooking videos are something viewers are REALLY interested in.  I enjoy making them, but they take a TON of work.  Also I always get negative feedback about not having precise measuring or instructions.  That's just not my style of cooking and I always warn people of that at the start of cooking videos.

#6... Time Management For A Stay At Home Mom
Sharing tips I've learned along the way is something I LOVE doing.  Connecting with other moms like me is one of the best parts of doing Youtube.  This video was also a collab with Cas, one of my favorite Youtubers.

#5... Making Hard Decisions
Let me tell you.... opening up and really sharing emotional things is not easy.  Especially online where you are open to criticism, and you never know who is watching.  This year I made a really hard decision to leave a GREAT work from home opportunity to focus my time back on family.  It was not easy.  When I say it was a great work from home position, I mean PERFECT.  It turned out to be the right decision, and my family is better for it.

#4... A5 VS Personal Planner | Which is Better
Planner videos are always a big hit.  The foundation of my channel started with planner videos back in 2013, (A look back at my planner from 2012) planner videos are still a favorite for me as well!

#3... How To Meal Plan | Strategies and Tips
This may be one of my favorite videos of this year.  It was one that was on my "to film" list for months.  I felt so accomplished when it posted.

#2... How To Prep Freezer Meals | With Easy Recipes
The thing that sticks out for me is the thumbnail photos from this video.  Photographing food is not easy!  Creating a thumbnail that will attract people to click to see more is very important when going through the upload process on Youtube.  I love the entire process of Youtube from brainstorming the idea, to filming, editing, adding music, doing the description, creating a thumbnail, promoting on social media, I really do LOVE IT!

#1... Planner Set-Up 2016
It's funny that I am starting 2017 back in the planner I started 2016 in.  I LOVE showing you all what works for me, what doesn't, and all the in between of my planner process.

There it is my top 10 of 2016!  Let me know in the comments below which was your favorite video of the year!

I also recently did a video on my Top 10 Favorite Youtubers and IG accounts!

I got the idea for this post from Diana, be sure to check out her top ten post as well!

Wishing you all the best in 2017...
