My 2016 Blogging Resolutions
Welcome to 2016! Last year was my time for falling in love with blogging and in the upcoming year I intend to keep that up, and then some. Here are the four resolutions I'm putting in place!
Put my all into everything
Straight to it, what's the point in doing anything half-assed? I want to be proud of everything I produce, I want to be content with my content. How I'm gonna do that is abolish a strict schedule, which the plan-oholic in me fights the idea of but I think it's the best way and I'm excited to embrace it. That, and I won't be letting any emails promising 'great exposure' sway me into working for free. Hopefully a happy writer will mean a happy reader. That's you!
Finally starting my Youtube channel was something I loved doing last year and a huge bonus for me was reaching 100 subscribers before the end of it! I want to continue making videos but maybe expand on the kind of videos I make. Y'know the way I do Weekly Reflect blog posts every Sunday? Well I'd quite like to make weekly vlogs from time to time and incorporate them in those!
Create a more interactive space
Hand on heart, it's not numbers that mean most to me. Interacting with people does. That's why I blog! Sure, I feel good when I reach milestones but getting '1 new comment' emails fills me with way more joy. Whether it's here, on Instagram or Twitter or wherever, I'm gonna do my best to inspire and invoke engagement with whoever wants to read. I'm also gonna comment on other blogs a lot more too!
I love learning. This year I want to absorb as much information as I possibly can, be it photography, html, video editing - whatever it is, I'm gonna learn it! If I need to do that by reading everything ever written, asking someone for their advice or taking a class, I'm up for it. You can bet your life I'll be writing blog posts sharing what I learn if I can!
And that's what I'll be working towards in 2016! I wanna know if there's anything you'd like to see from me this year, get involved in the comments below and let me know!
Do you have any blogging resolutions?
