2018 New Year's Resolutions + Blogging Goals

Happy New Year! I'm kicking off 2018 by sharing everything I hope to accomplish in the upcoming year! I was pretty good about following through on last year's resolutions, so let's hope this year will be equally as productive!


// RESOLUTIONS //

Stop saying "like" // I'm so guilty of saying this word constantly, and that's become apparent to me whenever I edit my YouTube videos and hear myself saying it over and over. I really want to focus on eliminating this word from my vocabulary.

Run 200 Miles // I just picked this as a random number, so I honestly have no idea if this goal is easily achievable or basically impossible. I like to run, but I want run more in order to focus on endurance and speed.

Cut Back On Dessert // As a dessert lover, I hate to add this one to the list, but I've recently noticed that every time after eating dessert, my stomach hurts to the point where I can barely stand up straight. Needless to say, that's not fun, so I should probably limit my dessert to two or three times a week.

Take a Picture/Video Every Day // I really want to focus on capturing the moment more. I plan on taking a picture or video every day so I can look back on 2018 a few years from now and see what a great year it was. I want to do a video where I film a second each day for the entire year and put it all together at the end - I think that would be so fun!

// BLOGGING GOALS //

Hit 5k on Instagram // This past year was such a slow year for me when it came to Instagram growth. I barely gained 500 followers, and my engagement decreased significantly. I attribute most of that to the new algorithm and the business accounts, so I've switched back to a personal account in hopes to increase engagement.

Rebrand // I've talked briefly about this before, but I feel like Live The Prep Life isn't me anymore. I want to create a new blog name, but I've been thinking about this for six months and have yet to come up with a name I could see myself using and loving in the long run.

Improve My Video Editing Skills // I just got a MacBook for Christmas, and with that comes so many great editing softwares! I have no clue how to use them, but I'm eager to start learning and improve my video editing skills.

Learn To Shoot In Manual Mode // I hoped to do this last summer, but never quite got around to it. While intimidating, I want to learn how to shoot in manual mode on my camera so I can have better quality pictures.

I also hope to complete a few more items on my 101 in 1001 list - it ends this September!

Lastly, I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to fill out this reader survey to help me better plan content for y'all in the upcoming year. Your support is greatly appreciated!

What are your resolutions?
