2018 Goals and New Year Resolutions + Collab

Happy New Year! 2017 was such a phenomenal year and brought so many great experiences. With the new year here, I’m joining others in making a list of goals or things that I want to achieve for 2018. My good friend Caroline from The Georgian Prep  will be sharing her 2018 New Year Goals on her blog as well! Make sure to take a look at her list and blog. Lastly, be sure to follow her Instagram for creative shots featuring some preppy brands. These goals I will (attempt) to uphold during the year in order to impact my life positively. I have a lot of new ideas and plans for 2018 that I cannot wait to share on my blog and Instagram. Bring on the new year!

BLOGGING:

1) Reach 2,000 followers

Over the summer, I received many views on my blog and likes on my Instagram posts. Towards the end of summer, my account was barely receiving any engagement and it was realllllyyy slow. I haven’t gained followers in around six months, but this is all about to change.

2) Collaborate with Bloggers 

Many girls in the blogger community like to do collaborations, which I would love to do more of! I’ve done a few, but I would love to incorporate more into my blog for a change.

3) Incorporate Videos / Youtube?

Recently I’ve been getting into incorporating videos onto my blog. As much as I hate to say it, sometimes it is easier to lean back and press play as opposed to reading a blogpost. As it’s already been proven, the generations’ attention span is getting shorter. I have done two travel videos on the blog and they have received positive feedback, which makes me want to do more!

 

PERSONAL:

1) Spend more time with those who make me happy

Though I already do this, I want to put this goal up as a reminder that I have to take each day for granted and live to fullest. I want to spend more time with people who raise me up and make me feel good about myself such as my grandparents, family, and friends.

2) Be more confident

I don’t lack confidence, but I want to gain more of it. Not only the basics of confidence, but to be more confident in school. Whenever I walk into a test (even if I prepare for it a lot), I get nervous and that makes it harder to take the test. I usually end up doing well, so the nervous bugs shouldn’t get to me! In the new year, I want to become more confident in myself.

3) Be more open-minded / open mind set

I like things organized, and to be the best that they can be. That doesn’t mean that I never change my mind based off other’s opinions or don’t listen, but I do like to have some control on a project or event. This goal goes along with my confidence goal, I want to have my limits expanded. What I think that I can’t do, I can!

 

Thank you for reading today’s blogpost and I hope you have a wonderful New Year! 2018 is the time for a fresh start and to make new goals. Let me know some of yours!
