Happy New Year everyone! I went slightly off the grid during Christmas and those dead days before New Year’s Eve. I had good intentions of at least posting something once, but all that slouching around got in the way.
No more! I was very keen to get a post up on 1st January, start as I mean to go on and all that. I get a bit excited about making New Year’s resolutions, despite the fact that yes, I could make them at any time of year; it does not have to be the arbitrary day where we mark the fact that the Earth has completed one orbit around the Sun. But I like making them, maybe I should have a review on 1st June to see how I am going and perhaps make some more.
I will think about my New Year blogging goals first. When I did Blogging 201 in December the first assignment was to set out some goals, but then another assignment had me making a new twitter account and I just got distracted by that. So maybe I should review and renew my goals now.
First off, I actually achieved one of my goals, I got to 100 followers! I was pretty chuffed with that, I do not have 100 followers on anything! So thank you to anyone who has followed me, and an extra thank you to anyone who follows me and reads my posts. I do a little dance each time I get the email to notify me of a new follower, and get pretty excited whenever get a new comment because it means somebody actually read something I wrote.
So, now I guess I will resolve to get 200 followers!
I will also keep my other two goals of commenting on at least one blog a day and scheduling three posts a week.
I am also thinking of doing some kind of 365 photo challenge and taking a picture everyday, then posting it to my instagram. Then maybe I could start doing my Weekly Wonders again but make it a summary of the photos I have taken.
Right now, I am quite excited about this. We will see how I feel a couple of months down the line when I have taken a picture of every photogenic thing I own and there is no pretty weather to take a picture of. Maybe I’ll have to get good at taking selfies or something…
That’ll do for now, I will have a look at how I am doing with these goals in a couple of months.
When I started this blog back in March I was not really sure what I wanted to do with it and I was a bit worried I would stop after a couple of blog posts. Luckily I stuck with it and I am very glad I did. It has been so much more fun than I thought it would be and I am excited to keep trying to make it better.
On a separate note, I am 24 tomorrow! I’m not freaking out about it or anything, I promise.
