Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope you all had a fab Christmas, and now don't look like Santa because of all that food you ate! ( If you are here looking for diet advice, you are in the wrong place sunshine) anyway, to start the year of with a BANG ( goodness me, I am great at puns) I thought I would do a ' Blogging Goals' post because it will completely contradict what I did last year which was a ' Disappointing products' post, you know I want to be more festive this year! Never done one of these before, so I am actually really looking forward to doing this! Here's to a positive and successful 2016! ( and me still thinking it's 2015 for the first three months)
#1 BECOME A DAILY BLOGGER ( well kind of)
You know what they say, go hard or go home! Yeah, I am probably going to go hard and then go home! This might be an epic fail, but the thing is I know I have the time to be a daily blogger because I won't have any exams and I am really on top of my college course at the moment! Obviously, my college course comes first but I would love to give it a go, I have got so many content ideas and I want to see my blog grow this year! With hopefully the help of my new iPod touch, I will be on buffer, quicker than anything! If I upload every other day that is always fine for me- I just want to post more! ( PS; Think I am deciding to post every other day, for now, to get me in the swing of things)
#2 DO AUGUEST ON MY BLOG
Unfortunately. blogmas falls at an awkward time of the year for me! Trust me, I asked if they could change it, they said no! So the only month of the year I am free is August, to celebrate I want to do a collab with one of my favourite bloggers each day of the month about a passion or love we share in common! aw, how cute!
#3 START MY SECRET PROJECT
In a couple of weeks, I hope to launch a new project/ campaign on my blog ( 17th Jan is the new launch date)! It involves you guys and me working together to spread a positive message through the power of the blogging community! I won't reveal what it's about yet, so you know it builds up some suspense! I am not sure if you guys will like it, but I am really excited but also bricking it, at the same time for the launch!
#4 BE MORE ARTY
As you have probably seen the image to go alongside this post is quite arty and creative. I definitely want to create more infographics, flat lays and images that are unique and different this year. I think, I have a creative outlet so I should start showing off some of my arty side to build up a bigger portfolio and make it more individual. I am also wanting to improve my photography this year but I thought that was too cliche to have its own goal!
#5 REACH 750 BLOGLOVIN FOLLOWERS
Blogging isn't about numbers, I know, but I would love to reach 750 bloglovin followers as I am nearly at 500 and then maybe I could reach 1000 the year after this one! I don't know, maybe I am asking too much! I am honestly so grateful for everyone who reads and takes time out of their day to comment and follow. It would be nice to reach some numerical goal as well!
WHAT DID I ACHIEVE IN 2015?
I bet you are all sick to death of seeing posts like these in your feed so I thought I would bung it into this post! My blog grew massively this year throughout the summer, which I still can't get over, however, it then stagnated so it's my goal this year to keep going and post more often! I finished school with some impressive grades, I may add! I did more travelling, admittedly I didn't travel the world but it's all about the small steps. I've settled into college pretty well! But most importantly, I think I grew in confidence- not in real life but on my blog. I believe my writing style now portrays this. Blogging makes me so happy and that is primarily why I want to achieve so much with my blog in 2016.
ANY LIFE GOALS FOR 2016?
This year is another big year of milestones, wedding anniverses, birthdays oh and it's my 18th. I look forward to travelling more, finishing the first year of my college course oh and maybe having an idea about where I am going to uni would be good too!
And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this quick run down of some of my blogging goals for 2016 and a bit of a life update! Maybe, I have even inspired a few of you!
Do let know in the comments below what are your blogging goals for 2016!
