Happy New year everybody!! I hope you all have a wonderful year. I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and write out a list of blogging and personal goals for 2016. I’m hoping that this will motivate me to keep on track, especially my personal goals since they’re always harder for me. Let me know what your goals are/if we have any in common.
Lose weight – I don’t have any particular number in mind. I’m just going to eat healthy and exercise until I’m happy with my reflection *thumbs up emoji*
Go out more – It’s no surprise that I’m a hermit who lives in her dressing gown and changes from one set of pyjamas to another but I’m really hoping to go out more and socialise. I’m also going to make more time for friends and actually reply to texts the same day instead of my usual 3 months later (lololol).
Learn to drive – Yes I’m 21 and have yet to learn how to drive. Well I had other priorities when I was 17 so I need to get on to that. I have 12 months so I should be fine, should.
Read more – I have like 20 books on my to-read shelf and another 30 in my Amazon wishlist so I need to get through them all. I’m looking forward to just chilling and reading but I need to find a job as well.
Get a job as a midwife – It’s been pretty scarce for posts where I live which don’t require a car (since I cannot drive) so I’m now looking for odd jobs in the town to keep my going and pay for driving lessons. I might just bake a bunch of pies and sell them at the car boot. [PIES! PIES FOR SALE! ONLY £300 EACH]
Now for the gritty part of my goals.
500 Instagram followers – I currently have 200+ but I’m super lazy with Insta so I’m going to start utilising it properly because it’s a fantastic tool for blogging. Gotta up my photography game first.
500 Bloglovin followers – This may be a long shot as my blog is quite small but who knows, maybe my writing skills will improve dramatically and draw in a big crowd. Or maybe my family will make accounts and give me sympathy follows.
Purchasing my own domain – I’ve been meaning to do this for ages but I just don’t have the money right now so unfortunately it’s just going to have to wait until I have a job/regular income.
Improve my photography – I think I’ve been getting better but I’m super picky when it comes to things like that so I’m trying to branch out so others will be drawn to it too (so far not good), so fingers crossed. Throw me your tips posts!
Improve my writing – I need to get better at writing. I used to be great (or at least my primary 5 teacher thought so) and I want to get back in to writing poems and short stories. I used to love writing children’s stories when I was younger.
All the best for 2016! Let’s all make it a good one!
