Top posts & pics – 1 year anniversary Authentic Chica

It’s a small milestone for me, because this week, exactly 1 year ago I started my blog and social media accounts, so that calls for a celebration, right?!

I may still be a small fish in the big pool that’s called the internet and social media, but I am happy to see that I am steadily growing, meeting and inspiring more and more likeminded people and can help others with travel, hotel and social media tips. Also I have done many great collaborations already the past year and am having lots of fun.

Those are exactly the reasons why I built this website and started my separate travel accounts for Authentic Chica on social media 1 year ago, so yay for that!

As the analytics addict that I am I check my stats and figures almost every day and love to see growth and compare what’s working and what’s not. So naturally I was curious to see which posts on my website have been read the most, which turned out to be an interesting list.

Just for fun I rounded up my top 10, and in short it seems that you guys like my blog posts about my own country, Thailand, iconic cities and about me, Instagram and my favourite hotels the most…Who could have guessed, but great taste!:)

Click on below links to check my top 10 yourself and really curious to hear if you agree…

My anniversary is not complete when I don’t mention my social media top 10 as well though. I have several social media accounts for Authentic Chica to complement my blog, for instance you can already find me on:

Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Bloglovin and Stumbleupon.

But as you could have read in my previous blog post the Positive Power of Instagram, IG is my favourite platform of choice! As I am on there every day and focus most on Instagram I was very curious to see which pictures have been liked the most. I was happy to see the following top 10, rounded up below from 1 to 10.
