Welcome back! Today I am sharing a few of my New Year’s resolutions for 2017. I am so sad that Christmas has come and gone, but I am looking forward to a fresh new year and new beginnings and goals! I really want to accomplish some big things in 2017, and I really feel that life has a lot in store for me this coming year. So, with out further ado… let’s get into my resolutions! I hope I can inspire some new goals for you & please don’t hesitate to share your resolutions in the comments below!
I have so many resolutions for all of the aspects in my life. I can’t wait to spell them out and share them with you here so I have something to come back to when I lose track 😉 .
How To Start A Blog – A new series coming to Poised Avenue in 2017. What I love most about blogging is being able to share what I love with my readers, and that includes blogging. When I first began blogging about a year ago, I was obsessed with reading other blogger’s opinions on blogging topics. So, I want to share what I have learned with aspiring bloggers! I am by far no expert, but I think that adds a charm to what I have to say. It will be raw, honest, and a learning process for me, too. I also want to interview bloggers with large, successful followings, bloggers who have turned blogging into their career (my dream) to share their own tips and tricks here on Poised Avenue! I am so excited for this new project… stay tuned and be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a thing!!
Sponsored Posts – An opportunity for growth. Like I mentioned above, I would love to run Poised Avenue as my full time job. I have completed a few sponsored posts in the past, but never paid. I really want to journey into paid sponsorships and create an income for myself that I can eventually live off of. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I was up until 3am last night creating my media kit (it’s now uploaded to my contact page). It’s small steps like that that keep me so motivated and excited to see what comes next!
Grow Traffic – and social media following. I would love to grow my following and readership, ultimately strengthening my engagement. A loyal readership is the basis and foundation for a successful blog, so I thank each and every one of you who have subscribed and read what I had to say! I can’t wait to see how big the Poised Avenue family will be in the future and how much it will grow in 2017. I have recently learned how important setting qualifiable goals is, so I look forward to spelling those out for 2017 very soon and sharing them with you in my series, How To Start a Blog.
Shop Poised Avenue – Selling my favorite pieces. Some of you may now that I started Shop Poised Avenue a few months ago, but it came to a halt recently. I purchased a URL specifically for the shop, and am still working on designing it. I want to have more than just a few pieces to put up and am still deciding on what way is the best way to photograph the items. I really want to work on all those details in 2017 and hopefully have Shop Poised Avenue back up and running!
Eat Better – And exercise more. This is something I struggle with every year. Basically… I love food and hate exercise lol! But, in high school I was all about eating light, healthy meals and small portions… so I know it’s in me! I didn’t even eat butter in my early teens. Yeah… I don’t know. I want to incorporate some healthy meal options and a few of my favorite juice blends into my blog, so keep checking back for more yummy recipes! Last weekend Shaun and I were in Lake Arrowhead and I had a grilled caesar salad. Like, the lettuce was grilled. It was super cool and really yummy! I might recreate something similar soon 😉 .
Be The Best Me – In all aspects. Not only do I want to go after my dreams and take care of my body, but I want to be, overall, the best me. The best daughter, sister, girlfriend, nanny, blogger, student. I love self-help and inspirational reads, so if you have any recommendations leave them below, please!
What are some of your New Year’s resolutions?
