This week, I have really been focusing on the “new year, new me” concept. That sounds completely cliche – I know…but New Year’s resolutions can be a good thing. I make them every year and even if I don’t stick to them, I still feel it is important to have some sort of direction. If I didn’t, then Pearls and Polkadots would not exist (that was my resolution last year)!
Today, I want to detail some of the things I hope (and will!) bring to you in the next year. We are at the beginning of a brand new year and semester, which means I am really going to try and put 110% into quality posts!
1. 5 Posts per Week
On July 1, I took up the #30Dayblogging challenge, which required me to post every day for 30 days. I got so into it, that I carried it past July and ended up writing every day until mid-November. Once I began school, I started to get extremely busy. Posting every single day became tedious and my post quality quickly deteriorated! For 2-0-1-6, I am focusing on quality posts on weekdays only.
2. Outfits, outfits, outfits!
Style blogging requires outfit posts – so I am hoping to bring you regular outfit posts to beef up the style side of Pearls and Polkadots. Not to mention, I love a good photo shoot! Hopefully I can do several in a week, but we will have to see!
Bloggers support bloggers. That is a motto to live by in this world. Without each other, we would get nowhere. So expect to see more collabs with different style bloggers, communities, etc. I am really trying to focus on this aspect of my blogging career.
One of my favourite things to do is go back a month or two (or three!) and see how my blog has evolved. As you become more experienced and get to know your blog (and your niche), you seem to improve your writing skills, standardize your format, and get better at what you post. I am slowly revamping each post to be consistent with my writing style now, and for the next month or so, I want to reflect and flashback on those old posts.
Follow my journey with me as Pearls and Polkadots grows.
It’s going to be a great year and I can’t wait to have you follow along with me.
