I’ve been wanting to write this post ever since the turn of the new year but frankly, getting motivated to do so was difficult. It’s not that I didn’t want to blog, it’s more I struggled with my goals for the year and what I wanted to happen.
It took me a few days to come up with some core goals that were realistic and not way above achievable, but were also not completely time-consuming now that my priority is my child. No longer can I be selfish, I have to put my beautiful little girl first and my goals come second especially when it comes to blogging which is a hobby.
I’ve read lots of these post in the past and finally have opened my laptop to write my own goals post. I’m going to share some of my blog goals as well as personal goals as well to hopefully make it a little bit different from some other posts you may have read.
Thank goodness January is over! Not only does it always feel like the longest month but I decided to give up alcohol for the month in order to detox. (always a great idea in my head on Jan 1st but not by Jan 21st!) January has also been the month that I decided to really give my blogging a go and make an effort to try and post regularly and also interact with fellow bloggers. I gave myself 3 main goals to achieve and also maintain not just give up after the first month.
- My first goal was to try and post more frequently – Done (I managed 16 posts in Jan which is 1 every other day!)
- My second was to try and participate in blogger chats on twitter as its a platform I only really got into in December – also done. I check every night for the latest blogger chat and if it’s a topic I have an opinion about, then I love to be involved and also find some amazing blog links.
- My last goal was to put myself out there and be confident with what I am writing. My skin gives me huge problems and although I have great days with makeup and it doesn’t look bad, I hate talking about it with people as I worry they will then stare!!! I wanted to post about it as I thought it would help me with confidence about my skin and also find out new ways to help combat breakouts. I can safely say I have blogged and learnt and feel proud that I haven’t avoided the subject.
I will be keeping you lovely lot updated as I go throughout my blogging journey and if I have managed to stick to my own goals or if I add more to develop my little blog. Thank you to all the wonderful people who have been looking at my posts and have commented, it always spurs me on to provide more posts.
I hope you have enjoyed this short and sweet post, I have some exciting posts which will be coming up this week including some reviews and a tips and tricks post, so keep your eyes peeled.
