I hope everyone’s 2015 started off well, and whether you believe in starting resolutions at the beginning of the year or not, I thought I’d just share my blogging goals for the year.
1. Topic diversity
I enjoy writing about green beauty a lot, and it will remain the focus on the blog. However, I want to incorporate more personal thoughts and more “lifestyle” articles, such as travel posts, tea posts (one is in the works), and everything else branching towards eco and green living.
2. Finish the blog layout once and for all
Last year, I decided to take the blog layout into my own hands, and while I learned quite a few bits about coding, my blog is still a work in progress. There’s something really satisfying about doing it yourself, but time is an issue: it takes me hours (or even days) to figure out how to change a setting. So I think I might look for the services of a tech whiz, so that once and for all, the blog looks the way I envision it.
3. Create a posting schedule
Possibly the most challenging resolution of the bunch for me. I find myself posting 3-4 times a week (mostly during the holidays and off work), but when things get too hectic I happen to let a week gap between two posts. I’ll try finishing up several posts at once on Sundays, and see if it works for me or not.
4. More collaboration
As we say, strength in unity. Blogging wouldn’t be as fun without the supportive and inspiring green community. When I first started, little did I know that I’d meet/connect with wonderful, kind-hearted people during my blogging journey. I thoroughly enjoy the group challenges (NoBuyJanuary, Beautychallenge10, GreenSurvivor), the swaps, and I had a blast at the Field Trip Tour, so this year I’m longing for more blog collaborations.
5. Try at least to stick to one of these resolutions below 😉
Action over words. I used to write down big lists of resolutions, but to no avail. Several year ago, one of my resolutions was to get my driver’s license. For 2 years in a row, I planned on doing it, yet nothing happened. Something would always get in the way. And then one day in September, I just walked into a driving school and sent my application, and within a few months I finally passed the driving test and got my license. Easy as that. Just do it, as they say 😉
