My photographer asked me recently – “what are your plans with your blog in the new year?” The question sort of took me aback – it’s similar to when people ask me where I’m going with my career. I realised that I’d given it no thought (blogging in 2019, I have thankfully given my career many thoughts), and actually, I had no idea where I was going with my blog in the new year.

Over the course of 2018, I feel like I found myself in a good place with my blog. As I’ve mentioned before, I started focusing on writing blogs with more substance, blogs that I would like to read myself, blogs that were honest, raw and little less fluffy around the edges. I liked writing these blogs, and actually, people seemed to like reading them too (grateful)! Towards the end of 2018, I became a bit fatigued with my blog. I mean, blogging isn’t what is used to be. Stunning photos on Instagram is where the focus lies right now and a number of names have been slowly dropping out of the blogging landscape. I guess it felt like tumbleweed was blowing across the blogging world as we know it and I decided to go with it.

That said – it’s a brand new year and, like many other bloggers, I’m setting some goals and changing things up around here a little bit in 2019.

I guess looking objectively, it might seem as easy as – i) come up with an idea for a blog post, ii) type it up, iii) hit publish and hey presto. Perhaps iv) the occasional Instagram upload with an unrelated caption. Maybe. That said, there are, without a doubt, a few behind-the-scenes nuggets required for everything to slot together before that “publish” button can even be hit.

Here are a few of the things you don’t see…
