My blogging journey so far & goals 2018

Okay, I feel like the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is officially over 😦 well… at least where I live. Everyone’s going back to school and work and starting the new year. I for one, am still in the holiday spirit and feel like Christmas has gone way too fast. But even though I still wanna lay out in the sun on the beach and read a book, I also can’t wait for the adventures and opportunities this new year has to offer!

But before I continue with it all, I just wanna do a quick recap of my blogging experience and journey so far and also what goals I set out for myself for my blog for this year.

Okay, so I started my blog somewhere in August last year and it was just a very spontaneous move I made, but I definitely don’t regret it. I really enjoy writing about things that genuinely makes me feel bliss (hence my blog’s name) and it really puts a smile on my face when other people enjoy my blog and the things I write about.

My blogging experience so far has mostly been positive and it’s definitely something I’d want to continue with. I’ve gathered a few points on what stands out for me in the whole blogging journey and also somethings’ I struggle with.

The blogging community —

My experience with fellow bloggers and just the blogging community in general has been really positive so far. Everyone’s really supportive of one another’s blogs and genuinely kind. I think having a positive blog community plays a huge role in whether or not you want to continue with blogging and also affects the things you post and your general attitude while blogging or replying to comments – luckily I haven’t had any bad experiences yet and I doubt that I will have any, because bloggers truly are supportive of other peoples’ blogs, especially when you’re first starting out!

Interaction —

I love reading other bloggers posts and if it’s something I genuinely enjoyed or are interested in, I’d sometimes leave a comment and interact with the other blogger and I always appreciate it when they reply back to me or just even like my comment, because it makes me feel like they also want to interact back. I just think it’s always good to interact as much as possible with the people who read your blog and for me personally, that is one of the things I have enjoyed about blogging, being able to communicate with others.

Coming up with new ideas & getting creative —

This one has to be something I enjoy, but also something I struggle with. I love coming up with new blog post ideas and if it’s something I can take beautiful photographs of, I get really excited, because I love photography and I can play around and get creative.

BUT… as much as I enjoy it, this is also something I struggle with a lot of times – coming up with new blog post ideas. There are times where I have loads of ideas and I want to write them all and post them and then there comes days where I have absolutely NO clue what to write about and no inspo, but I’m sure I am not the only one struggling.

I have set out a few goals for my blog for this year, and I am gonna try my best to try and stick with ’em and to accomplish them πŸ™‚

Posting more consistently & regularly —

So I am very aware that my consistent posting game has been very off this past two months… and there are reasons for that. I was busy studying and tried to focus more on my studies aaaannndd let’s be real, the holiday season can get really busy and crazy and I just struggled to find time to post, because I do take my time when I write a blog post…

So I therefore I have made it one of my goals, to improve on my consistency of posting. And I am actually starting college at the end of January and I’ll probably be very busy, but I really do want to continue blogging and keep on improving. Planning is key! Right?

Finish my blog’s “logo” —

I am not sure if you can call it a logo, that sounds too corporate, but I guess that’s the right word. I already have an idea of what I want it to look like, I just need to design it and finalize it.

Seeking more inspiration —

Like I said, I have a lot of days where I really have no idea what to post, I think what really happens is that I actually do have many ideas, I just think it’s too much that it then feels like I have nothing to write about, but actually I just can’t choose what to write about? Anyway, I am gonna try and cancel out these days by planning ahead, once again, and also to look for inspo around me or from other people.

 

So there you have it guys! This was just a quick overview of what I have experienced with blogging so far and what I want to achieve this year with my blog.

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

  3. I am not very good at planning out my blog posts. I like just doing up a blog and posting it. I feel it keeps with the feel of our ADHD family. We are VERY spontaneous!
    Keep up the great work!

  4. So happy about your progress and I totally agree with you on the blogging community – everyone is very supportive and it does make you feel good when someone actually took out time to read our blog and comment, like you – if it’s something that really got my attention or maybe something I can relate too, I do leave comments. I struggle too with coming up with content most of the time because you want to make sure you’re posting things that people want to read about. I’m so happy for you and I know you will crush your goals for this year! =)

  5. I am glad to see you are persevering in your blogging. The vast majority of people who read your blog will be those who share interests with you and who like your writing style. In my seven years here, I have encountered only one troll. Trolls can be summarily blocked.
