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.
Year in Review
Happy New Year, everyone! Damn, 2018, what a year it was – honestly, it was a great year, which is relieving because 2017 was just too meh for my liking. I am definitely proud of the year just passed and feel blessed, lucky and privileged for sure. I am so very grateful for the wonderful people I have in my life and of course I am super thankful for all those that have read my blog and left love over the course of the year. I’m glad I made the step to start posting only what I see as value-add blogs with substance and blogs that can help and inspire others as the amount of love I’ve received this year from those that have read and those that have been able to take something away from my posts – both online and offline – has really been overwhelming!
Anyways – with all the fluffy stuff out of the way – follow the jump to read about my year in depth and what goals I’ve set myself for 2019…
