Auntie Venom’s Most Popular Posts in 2016


By: Stephanie

It was a great first year for Auntie Venom blog and Morgan and I thank you for your support. We were still finding our footing for the first few months (and I was calling Morgan Emmi before she became a full time collaborator) but we got into a groove and now have a clear vision for 2017. We also have a brand new advisory board called the Aunt-bassadors, 40+ women of all ages who will share their unique perspectives on topics like career, health, body positivity, college, money, feminism, relationships and adventure. We’re excited about what’s ahead but before we end the year, let’s look back on Auntie Venom’s most popular posts for 2016.
