We’re at Day 17 of the Challenge. I’m doing this with my blogging buddies Maggie and Cheila, so check out their responses to the prompts too!
Day 17 is about the Goals for my blog.
I have a few goals in mind for Life of Angela.
Here are my current ones:
Currently, I want to keep up with daily blogging. I haven’t missed a single day since I started, I’m now also up to two or three posts a day, which is crazy.
I will see through the 30 Day Blogging Challenge with the ever amazing Maggie and Cheila 🙂
I want to finish my A-Z Challenge of TV shows, it doesn’t get as much traffic as my other posts. but I’m committed to finishing it. Once I complete it I can give myself a pat on the back, cause I’m starting to struggle with some letters XD But it’s a challenge! And I will also see it through.
I want to continue doing the Weekly Photo Challenges through Daily Post. I love finding out the new theme, and trying to come up with my own interpretation or spin on it.
I also want to stick with doing weekly TBT posts, it’s fun to look back and decide which story I want to share with you guys.
Keep up to date with reading all of your posts. This is where I lose track of time the most. I get so into reading your posts and stories, that I get annoyed that I have to head back to work, or that I have some errand to do. But it’s important to enjoy life too. I’m starting to find that balance.
Here are some future goals:
I have never been one to aim for many followers, but this blog has surpassed every expectation I had. I thought it would be nice to reach 100, and I’m already past 400 at a few months in! I like the roundness of the number 1000. But that feels far away. For now, I’m enjoying where my blog is at, and the community that I’m a part of 🙂
Go self-hosted. I have been considering this for a while. However, I am trying to keep a tight lid on money because of our current plans. I am hoping towards the end of the year though, I might consider making the change. I will definitely let you guys know if I do, and give myself time to work it all out.
Videos. I’ve posted a few videos on here through YouTube. But I like the idea of one day making videos, on top of posts. I don’t think I would ever go full vlogger, because I am more comfortable typing on a computer, than speaking in front of a camera. But I would like to explore that avenue.
I’m happy to see where my blog will go. I’m still having so much fun, and I hope to keep carrying that momentum!
Kristyn, from Travel Nerd Plans tagged me to do the Smile Tag. She tagged me in her comments which is crazy sweet, as this tag is simply the best!
Bea also did this recently. As have a lot of you, but I didn’t save the URLs, so I will just say that I have seen this around a lot, and it’s such an amazing tag.
Here’s a message from the creator herself:
Here’s how it works…
Ciarralorren, creator of The SMILE Tag, wants to see your smiles! If you are nominated for this tag (which I hope all of you are), then simply post a photo of yourself smiling! There really are no rules for this tag. You can post as many pictures with as many people as you’d like solely under the condition that you are smiling in the photo or looking back at the photo makes you smile! It’s really quite simple. If you’d like, also share the story or stories behind the photos you post to let your followers gain more of an insight of who you are and what makes you happy. Or don’t! It’s really up to you! !Truthfully, it doesn’t matter how you interpret this tag, so long as you spread joy and happiness around the Internet and in doing so within your own life. Let’s all be happy and share our smiles!
Just keep the tagging along and TOGETHER, let’s create a mass movement of happiness! So start posting and tagging people now! Go, go, go!!
How awesome is that!!
Things that make smile:
Let’s start with the obvious, Rory. I’m still so happy that I have found someone so amazing who is thoughtful, sweet, clever, weird, and crazy enough to want to spend his time with me, let alone marry me.
So I’ve been wanting to make a bucket list for aaages. I liked the idea of coming up with 100 things, but that turned out to be a lot harder than I thought XD
I’ve been writing this since I started blogging, and I’ve only just finished it! I’ve included things I’ve wanted to do since I was younger, so I’m already able to start crossing things off. I’ll try to come back to this every now and then and see if I can cross more things off!
