I don't want to spend a lot of time on this section but I did want to put some things in writing in hopes of forcing myself to follow through. I wanted to write a few goals down for this blog and also home projects that I hope to complete. I'm not making resolutions, but rather goals as goals can be ongoing.
As far as the physical blog goes, I'm hoping to do a site redesign soon to make it a little easier to navigate and show off my personal style a little more. Most importantly though, I'm relaunching with a new name. I know that's risky to re-brand but I don't feel this name reflects me at this point in time. It served well for my first attempt to start a blog but it doesn't work for me anymore. I assume I may loose a few visitors because of the change, but I'm not interested in just the "number" of visitors, I really want to connect with others that have similar interests. I'm hoping the new name will allow me to build a brand that I love and am passionate about.
I'd like to connect more with social media. The blog community is on Instagram and I'm hoping to connect with them and expand to Facebook as well. I love the idea of filming some video tutorials and honestly just chatting with people about cooking, DIY, and home decor.
I am super excited at the potential of revamping an old camper. While the campground won't allow us to change too much about the outside of the camper, I'm hoping to make it my little beach cottage as the campground we will be going to is right across the street from the ocean. Can you put cedar shingles on a camper? Just kidding...sort of....
Finally the she-shed. I'm sure bf would argue that I've taken over my whole house so I probably don't need more space, but I'm envisioning an office space where I can work and make my mess from my DIY projects. This will also give us our guest bedroom back. Depending on the camper situation this may be more of a fall project.
I can't wait for the snow to melt so that I can start to tackle some of this stuff.
I have come really far this past year cooking, and I hope to continue learning. I really want to learn how to cook seafood. I'm not a big seafood fan, but bf is... and I mean I live in New England so I really should figure it out.
As you can see there's a lot going on there, not to mention I'm very busy at my day job. This little passion project though has really brought me a lot of joy, and I'm excited to see where it can go.
I'm hoping to hear from more of you this year. What are some of your goals for 2018?
