2013 Resolutions

Jumper - Mina

At the end of 2011 I made a few simple resolutions or goals to achieve in the year 2012. (This year has absolutely flown by I can't quite believe it's time for more new years resolutions.) I saved a Word document to my desktop with all my 2012 resolutions so I could keep checking on them throughout the year.

I'm pleased to say I have actually surpassed some of my expectations - I was hoping to reach 1,000 GFC blog followers in the year 2012 and I reached this milestone in July, not only that but I've gone on to gain 600 more. I can't thank my readers enough - I understand follower numbers are not everything, but the more people that come to the more I want to impress and produce better and bigger blog posts. I've also seen my Twitter numbers rise past the magic 1k so thank you, thank you, thank you!

My blog goals for 2013:

  • To show my Bloglovin account some much needed love. I tend to ignore my presence on bloglovin but recently I have been drawn in by it. It's a great way of keeping up with blogs that are not using the Blogger platform too.
  • To post often, with more thought and attention. I'm not a full time blogger - I'm balancing a University degree and a part time job along with running this blog so I do not have time to post every single day but I do want to make a little more effort with getting good content out to you guys regularly. 
  • Keep going with the DIYs - although they can be a huge effort to do I get the most positive feedback about them.

My personal goals for 2013:

  • Embrace change and explore new options, from little things like clothes and hair to big things like life choices and experiences.
  • Get an early nights sleep much more often
  • Continue to work hard towards my degree
  • Document 2013. I'm always pretty camera ready anyway but this year I'd like to take more short film clips as well in order to gain an overall 'mini film' of the year by December.

Using life lessons learnt in 2012 to shape the way you live 2013 can make a big impact and change things for the better. I'd be happy to hear your resolutions either for yourself or your blog, so feel free to leave me a comment below...

Adios 2012!
