Happy New Year, everyone! I hope the first day of the new year has brought hope, peace, and excitement into your lives! Today’s post will be a short one. As it is New Year’s Day, I figured the best thing to write about would be my New Year resolutions for the year!
- Post every single week!
Okay, this might seem like an easy task, but it most certainly is not for me! I honestly don’t know how you bloggers do the whole “blogging every day” thing. For real, I can hardly keep up with my Monday postings! Granted, I could put a lot more effort into scheduling posts and what not, but for now, just posting every single week is my first goal!
- Reach 1000 followers!
I finally hit the 500 mark a little over a week ago. It has been an absolutely incredible experience! I did not think my blog would ever make it to 100 followers, so this was a big jump! My next big goal is the big 1k! As I’m sure you can guess, there will most certainly be a giveaway along with it!
- Try one new thing every month!
I’m not sure what these will be. I’m not even sure what this month’s “new thing” will be. However, I plan to do a monthly series apart from the weekly Monday posts to give an update of which new thing I did and how it went! Some might be great, and some might not, but you may just get some new ideas to try, yourself!
- Visit 5 completely new places.
Notice I didn’t use the words “cities, states, countries, or continents.” This may end up being travel destinations, or they could also be science museums, coffee shops, restaurants, train stations, etc. It may seem boring, but I’m trying to be realistic here. Realistically, the nonexistent money in my wallet is telling me that I will likely have to stay small for this. But I will do my best to keep them exciting!
- Do more of the things I love to do!
This is another broad resolution. I feel that I spend so much time focused on work and getting things done that I forget to enjoy the journal and doing the things I love whenever I can. Now, I am an easily pleased person. Things I love include: sleeping, reading, watching Netflix, herping, hanging out with friends and/or family, blogging, photography, learning, etc. Even if I could just spend a little more time sleeping or reading, life would seem so much better!
So there you have it! A list of my 5 New Year’s Resolutions! What are yours?
P.S. If you have not yet entered my 500 follower giveaway, it is very easy and can be done here!
