Blogging Goals for 2017


This is my first post of 2017 so I would like to begin by wishing you all a Happy new Year.

Now it’s that time again that we are all making resolutions and setting goals for the year.  I have been thinking about what my goals would be for 2017 in relation to the blog.  My goodness there is so much I could write in this post but whether I would be able to achieve everything would be questionable due to time constraints.  Instead of writing a long winded post I though the best things to do was sum up my main goals for the year to give me something achievable to work too as I of course need to also allow for time with my lovely little family, friends, cooking, unforeseen circumstances, school shows, sleeping – I stayed up until all hours to complete blog posts in 2016 so need to learn to turn off the computer, and other things that may arise in my daily life.

One of my aims is to increase my daily views of the blog by bringing you all great content on a variety of subjects including recipes, fashion (adult’s and children’s), restaurant reviews, toy reviews, health and beauty posts and more.  I also hope to add some more great competitions as we all love these.

I would also love to increase the range of companies that I work with to bring you news about great new products (new to my blog at least).

I am also hoping to include guest posts from other bloggers as well as write guest posts myself where appropriate and haven’t really done anything like this so I’m not sure how it will work just yet.

I am looking forward to eating my way around more London Restaurants and tell you all about them or at least the good ones anyway.

I have been working on my photography but still want to improve this further.

I want to try and do video reviews on a more regular basis.

With these in mind and an inbox filling up with some interesting collaboration requests it’s set to be a fun and busy year.

Have you set yourself goals for 2017?
