2016 Goals | Blogging & Life


Christmas is pretty much over now and that means the New Year is officially on it’s way. I’ll probably be seeing it in from the comfort of my home in a pair of fluffy pyjamas that my parents got me. While that fact will probably never change (I swear I was born with a grandma’s mind), the goals I set for myself change each year. I thought I’d do a little run down on here, after all writing it down somewhere is hopefully going to motivate me to achieve them!

– Continue posting every other day on Jodie Loue

I have oodles of respect for those that can daily blog but it just isn’t for me. Every other day though seems to be working pretty well and I managed to stick to it for the whole of December. Here’s hoping I can actually stick to it for a whole 12 months now.

– Stick with University

While all my friends flew the nest this past September, I’m a few months behind. I’m also not moving out either, it just makes more sense to me. A common feeling among every person was ‘so do I drop out or stick with it?’. I’d be a fool to think it won’t happen to me and I’m hoping my impulsiveness won’t get the better of me. It’s the only way I get to be a nurse, so I just need to suck it up and carry on.

– Reach 1000 followers across all social media and on Bloglovin

This is probably such a vain goal, but I’m pretty much over half way across every social media platform I use and on Bloglovin. 1000 followers just seems like a nice number and I’m pretty certain it’s attainable across the year, right?

– Sort my skin out

You’re all probably sick of me blabbing on about my blemishes, and I’m even more fed up of having to see them on a daily basis. I finally went to the doctors through sheer desperation and I’m currently on antibiotics and Benzoyl Peroxide cream. If things aren’t improving by the summer, I’m being referred to a dermatologist. Fingers crossed that blemishes will soon be a rare occurrence!

– Bake something once a month

At least. Baking is always something I enjoy doing and without blowing my own trumpet, I’m fairly good at it. I want to start a baking section on this blog because nothing photographs nicer than food. Plus I get to eat delicious desserts. My grandparents know how much I love Mary Berry and bought me a cookbook of hers for Christmas so expect to see some of my efforts of recreating her tasty treats.

– Improve my photography

I finally understand the mumbo jumbo that is ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. Composition is something I’m working on still but I think *think* I’m getting there. I’d like to believe my photos are improving and I hope they continue to do so. My 40mm lens is sure to help.

What do you think of my goals for 2016? What are yours?
