8 things I hope to accomplish in 2018

A new year means new goals. For the past few years, I have done resolutions and they have always included something about loosing weight. Well, the spark usually fades out by about March, and the resolutions are usually not met. So this years, I am picking 8 goals: 4 personal and 4 blog related.

Personal wise

I have to say that the last six months of 2017 was not my cup of tea. After my car accident, I was depressed and honestly didn't want to do anything. Now, I am starting to feel better mentally (thanks to some meds) and hopefully the physical part will come soon. Until, here's what I want to accomplish personal wise in 2018. 

1 // buy a house
I have had the whole house thing on my goal list for forever. Now that I have a decent paying job, I am hoping to finally get into a house this year. My goal is to be at least putting in an offer and on our way to closing by the end of Summer. I am going to have faith. And my fingers are going to be crossed.

2 // go back to school
I have been toying with the idea of going back to school for awhile now. People think I'm crazy for wanting to, because I already have my Master's, but this time, I want to get a Post Grad Certificate in ABA. I am currently a RBT, so getting the certificate may allow me to get my BCBA and make more money. *If the Certificate doesn't work out, then I am open to getting another Master's degree. Basically I do therapy with children with Autism, and I am wanting to be able to draft and implement behavior plans. AKA: More money :) 

3 // go on vacation
I get that with wanting to get a house and go back to school, that money wise a vacation may not be feasible, but I really want to take my kiddo to Disney; or even back down to Tennessee. Vacation is the one time that my husband and I are able to relax without the stress of the house, family drama, or even bills. 

4 // better myself
I don't want to say "loose weight", because see above; but I do want to better myself- as in get healthier. I am addicted to pop. I would like to break my habit, and maybe go Vegetarian or Vegan. There is a lot out there that I can do to accomplish this goal... maybe I will even take a Yoga class. Or learn hand-lettering/calligraphy.

Blog wise

Over the past six months, I have been tweaking a lot on this here blog of mine. I have upgraded to a new & fresh blog template thanks to Georgia Lou Studios (I am able to change up colors as I please), changed my signature, I am working with more brands and websites, I only write about what I truly feel that my readers would want to read about, and so much more.

1 // grow social media & page views
Instagram is my favorite social media platform and my goal for 2018 is 3500. I would love to hit 5k, but that's a jump from just over 1600. I have some plans in motion to start this goal. Another thing is to grow my page views. I have seen a drop since I took a little hiatus, but that was to be expected. My goal is to put out a new post 2 times a week. If I can't maintain the twice a week, then once is ok. Honestly, I just don't want to go a whole month with only two blog posts. It doesn't help with my views!

2 // professional blog photos
I have been talking about taking actual professional blog photos for awhile now. I have several photographer friends and I am going to reach out to them. I hate having selfies as my profile pics!

3 // clean out my computer
Sure cleaning out my computer isn't a big goal, but it is something that I really need to do. I have been blogging for four years and I have a ton of pictures. I would like to get an external hard drive to store everything on, but I don't know. 

4 // start vlogging
I have a Youtube channel, but I never make videos for it. I want to start filming. I recently grabbed a new camera and my goal is to put out at least 3 new videos a month. I want to film hauls, beauty tutorials, product reviews, and even everyday life.

Do you have any goals for 2018? Tell me about them!!!

blogger goals, new year goals


  1. These sound like great goals! Best of luck to you on them! I really need to work on my blog engagement too!

  2. Great list! I'm always a fan of vacation and think everyone should take at least one each year. I need some professional blog pics done too- here's hoping I accomplish that!


Thank you for commenting! I love hearing from my readers! :)
