2018 Blogging Goals

Supposedly, you could say I'm relatively new to the whole blogging scene, just under 6 months ago I entered the wonderful world of blogging. However, in the little  time I have been part off this incredible community, I've learnt so much and struggle to remember my life before I started being a part of this. It's had such a positive impact on my life which is entirely down to you guys and I'm immensely thankful for it. 

It's surreal to me that we've managed to gather such an incredible and supportive community of people in the previous couple months, taking into consideration that I've only been religiously active on this blog for the past two to three months. What baffles me the most is the fact that even one person would be remotely interested in something I do, let alone consider hitting that follow button. 2018 is the year I want to progressively take things on here that extra step forward. Here are a few of my aims for the fresh start:

Invest more time into planning
Having my content planned out somewhere is nothing short of a life saver. I've tried various ways; calendars, online documents, post-it notes but none of them seem to serve their purpose. Come the new year my mission is to invest in a planner to assist me with all my organisational needs.

Boost in motivation.
In general, I'd say that I'm fairly decent as far as motivation is concerned. I feel very passionately about blogging as writing has always been a big part of my life, the one place where my mind finally allows a hint of creativity. Saying that, it doesn't mean lazy days are out of the window for me, that by no means is the case. My motivation lacks the most when I struggle to get out of bed and the thought of being productive tires me. But that's not the mindset I aspire to have from now onwards.

Get Organised
I'd love to say that 'I've got everything under control' but realistically that statement doesn't apply to me. From the start of next year I aim to create a new and improved blog schedule to aid for my new year needs.

1ooo+ on Bloglovin'
Ater analysing my blog statistics I have concluded that if my blog continues to steadily grow at the same rate then 1000 followers isn't looking too out of reach.

Better photographs
Easier said then done when you know next to nothing about photography (which is probably apparent if you've ever looked at my photos). However, there are little things I can do to improve them that one bit more. For Example: better lighting, more blogging props, etc.

So there we have it. I didn't think that I'd have to be sitting down and writing this so early but as always the time has flown by. 2017, why are you so eager to leave?



  1. Hi Lily, thanks for stopping my blog! Although I've been blogging off an on for the last 12 years (?! Eek!), my current lifestyle blog is only a couple of weeks old, and I can't believe I put off starting it for so long. It's so good to have a creative outlet, so I definitely know where you're coming from.

    Good luck with your blog in 2018!

  3. Thankyou so much! Yes, the photography and planning can definitely be difficult and certainly time consuming at times but as long as you power through it everything seems to work out! Checked out your blog too - It’s incredible;) deserves more recognition!
