Hey everyone! Notice anything different around here? Healthy Helper got a new look for the new year! This has been a long time coming and I am so happy it’s finally far enough along to share with you all. There are still a lot of kinks to work out so bear with me over these next few weeks. I accidentally published this post on Friday in the midst of the redesign so I don’t think a lot of you saw it! So check it out for my year end wrap up and I will be back tomorrow with my first post (and RECIPES!) of 2016! Also, if you have any feedback on the site, PLEASE email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks in advance.
Happy New Year, friends!!! I truly can’t believe how fast 2015/the holidays/THIS WEEK came and went.
I sort of missed the boat on doing a year-end review/wrap up post and I also haven’t done a Link Love post in a while. (Side note: one of my blog goals for the new year is to do link love roundups more often! I love sharing all the awesome content you guys are creating because there are just so many insightful, wonderful things being shared! Not to mention a lot of delicious food!) So why not combine the two to kick off the New Year? 🙂
Today’s Link Love will be a little different as I am going to highlight some of the Top Posts from Healthy Helper in 2015. So it will be a little internal Link Love for this roundup!
But before we get into it, I have to acknowledge to the cool new digs around here! Did you notice the makeover? Healthy Helper got an upgrade just in time for the New Year! New Year, new look, right? I’d love your feedback on it and anything you like/dislike. Please let me know! You can email me at Kaila@HealthyHelperBlog.com or leave a comment here. 🙂
Right then, on to the (inexcusably late) year in review…

Personal Favorites of 2015
Mind Body Green|
Overall, it has been an amazing year of growth and change on Healthy Helper! The community we’ve created here has grown so much stronger and I’ve connected with some incredible individuals. I’ve opened up and shared more personal details about my life, discussed some controversial topics, and created some pretty incredible food! Healthy Helper has really become something I’m proud of and I hope to continue it for many years to come. 2016 will be another year of growth and change both for the blog and I, but I am looking forward to tackling anything that comes my way! Lots of excitement to come, friends. Thank you for all your support and love as always. <3
And while we’re on the subject of 2016, here are some blogging goals for the New Year…
+improved photography (I’m taking two photography courses next semester!)
+using my CPT and Fitness Nutrition Coach certifications more to bring you some useful fitness content
+juggle my last college semester/grad school prep with blogging
+continue to improve my relationship with brands that I have come to love
+get more involved in the blogging community as a whole (I have a project in the works with this one!)
+COLLABORATE COLLABORATE COLLABORATE! There are so many amazing people I want to work with out there (bloggers and readers alike!)…so I hope to pursue some partnerships very soon.
Above all, I want to keep helping others on their own journey to healthy and happiness. I am by no means there myself, but I believe we are all a work in progress and can walk this path together.
Cheers to an even better year than the last!
