2017 became the year I fell back in love with Blogging. I started the year with a blog revamp and redesign to kick things off. I really started to put more effort into my content and took blogging a lot more seriously, and it paid off. Not only was my blog now a form of income for me, but I saw an increase in stats and landed myself some pretty amazing collabs if I do say so myself.
But not only that, I found myself full of new ideas and directed my blog down a different path by creating more varied content. I'm now at a place with my blog where I feel like I am not restricted, and I can talk about a variety of topics I am passionate about.
And now here we are, 2018. A new year brings new goals and resolutions.
So, what can you expect this year from me and my blog?
More Frequent Posts
One thing I've noticed is that the blogs I read the most often are the ones that post several times a week, if not daily. Having new content to share more frequently seems to keep people interested and coming back for more.
There's no way I will be able to manage posting daily, but I am going to try and post at least three times a week on my blog.
I'm also gonna strive to post daily on Instagram, which for the most part I'm already managing to do with the exception here and there.
More Fashion & Travel Content
2017 was the year I branched out in terms of content. I started creating more Lifestyle based posts. So continuing with that, I would like to do more in depth Travel posts. With any upcoming trips I'm going to go into work mode and spend part of my trips thinking up some hopefully amazing ideas for content.
As for Fashion, I've actually always done Fashion Posts, and for a while it was what my blog was solely focused on. However, I fell out of love with outfit posts in 2017, and I think it was purely down to the fact I wasn't happy with the shots I was getting.
In December, I treated myself to a new camera and lens to hopefully bring back my love for fashion posts and get some new and improved style of shots.
A More Professional Stance on Blogging
As I mentioned previously, last year I landed myself a lot of great collabs and sponsored opportunities. I began earning a decent income from blogging so obviously would love for that to continue. Therefore I'm not going to wait for opportunities to come to me. I'm going to put myself forward more.
Don't worry, this doesn't mean every single post on my blog or instagram is going to be sponsored. Especially if I'm posting more frequently. I'm going to find a nice balance of the two whilst still creating quality, honest content, whether it be sponsored or not.
There are various other things I want to dabble in this year in terms of blogging, but those are more side projects which I may cover in a post another time.
