These are my goals for 2017. I’m not a rensolution maker, but I think the term ‘goals’ is more attainable…so by the end of 2017 I would like:
•To vlog more and grow my YouTube channel – and to learn to edit faster, with the aim of uploading twice a week – I also really want a Canon G7X to help with that! Also I want to be able to add my channel to the Channel Mum list of Vloggers – I need to upload at least three times a month for this.
•To learn more about Twitter and how to schedule posts.
•To attend a blogging conference.
•To learn more about my DSLR camera and to get a 22mm lens for it.
•To continue to record our memories but start writing more ‘from the heart’ posts.
•To create a media pack.
•At the moment this seems crazy out of reach, but going self hosted is a major aim for 2017 – I would also like to buy my .com domain name too.
• To have my own workspace in the living room – our house is a squash and a squeeze but this is my top priority.
•To get a better balance between blogging and life – I think my own workspace will help with that, but I need to be more organised too – Rome wasn’t built in a day though!
•To get to grips with Google Analytics
• and finally, I know it’s not all about the stats but by the end of 2017 these would be my stat aims…

I’m so excited to see what 2017 is going to bring for us – since starting ‘seriously’ blogging in October I’ve had the most amazing support and already gained so many lovely followers, and I can’t wait to build on it this upcoming year. Blogging has been great for me personally – it keeps me busy and is a great outlet for me – also recording our memories is priceless. The blogging world has such a lovely community too – I really can’t wait to be more involved in it!
