A Look Back on 2016 + What's to Come in 2017

Wow, 2017! Here we are! Lots of changes happen with each passing year, and I feel grateful to be able to document it all on The Bella Insider even after all these years. As you might know, this blog is almost six years old (say whattt?!) but it's been about one year since re-launching as a college lifestyle blog with exciting, colorful content surrounding the craziness of my college years. 

The Bella Insider Best Nine

Since the beginning of 2016, y'all have built a social community of over 4K+, established a monthly readership of over 10K+, and created an overwhelmingly positive group on The Bella Insider that gets me excited to create content weekly. I can't thank you enough for continuing to push me both technically and creatively on this blog. It is exactly the kind of outlet I need to encourage me to be a role model in my community, continue to pursue my challenging major, and be excited about things happening outside the 40 acres of my college campus. From documenting my time living alone this summer to amazing opportunities to work with Teen Vogue Magazine and even my favorite Texas grocery chain H-E-B, I am so glad to have all of you here on this journey with me.
