Why hello, 2019.
New Year, new me? Not quite. More like new year, same me… working on becoming a better version of myself than I was last year!
Personally, I don’t like to set resolutions. I feel like once you call something a ‘resolution’ it puts a ton of pressure on it! Instead, I like to set goals for the New Year! 2018 was such a roller coaster year for me, but I’m determined to have more ups than downs in 2019! I’m a big believer in speaking things into existence. If you want it, put that positive energy into the atmosphere! I have several goals for 2019, both professional and personal. In this post, I’ve chosen to share my 2019 goals for Simply Anjhanee.
In 2019, I would love to grow my blog and overall social media presence! I started my blog last year after putting it off for years. I’m not entirely sure what kept me from starting sooner! I suppose it was a multitude of things, but I’m so glad that I finally just went for it. If you wait until the perfect time to do something, then you might not ever do it. Life happens, but it shouldn’t stop you from living it to the fullest. Taking the plunge was the best decision that I could have made!
Towards the end of last year I wasn’t nearly as active as I’d hoped, but this year I’m determined to be consistent. Consistency is definitely key! I want people to enjoy the content that I’m putting out there, and keep coming back for more. In my opinion, developing an audience all starts by being consistent.
I also plan on doing my research this year! And by that I mean, knowing exactly what it is that people want to see! Putting in the work, time, and energy to find out what’s going to make people visit my blog is at the tip top of my to-do list! I’d love to fine tune my niche, and really develop my skills as a blogger. My interests are vast, and I plan dabbling in them all. I don’t want to just do one thing, because that’s not me. I want to give ya’ll different pieces of me, and my personality. That’s what Simply Anjhanee is all about! I for sure don’t have this whole blogging thing figured out! There’s still so many aspects of running a blog that I’ve yet to learn, but I’m up for the challenge. Everything that I’ve learned thus far has been from researching, or simply just asking someone. There’s no shame in admitting that you need a little help from time to time! I plan on utilizing every tool within my reach to mold Simply Anjhanee into what I envision in my head. I have so many ideas, and dreams for this space. I hope that ya’ll will continue to join me on this journey!
One main element that I’d love to explore more this year is, collaboration. I hope to collaborate more with other creators in 2019! I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of the most creative, supportive, and talented individuals in 2018. Together, I feel that we could create really great content that people will genuinely enjoy. I’m still contemplating on how to implement this, but If I have to start sliding in DM’s – then so be it! The way I see it, all you can do is ask someone. Either they’ll say yes, or no. But hey, at least you tried! I’d also like to start a YouTube Channel sometime in the near-ish future! This has been a goal of mine for awhile, but somehow I always talk myself out of it. It’d definitely be a learning curve, but I’ll never know until I try. Those of you who are on YouTube, what would your advice be on starting up a channel?
Ultimately, the biggest hurtle for me last year with my blog was time management! I honestly think that’s what caused me to step away for awhile. I just began to feel so uninspired, and rushed with everything else going on around me. I felt that I had to post, but would draw blanks when it actually came time to write. I knew that starting a blog would require a lot of time, but I do feel as if I underestimated it. This year however, I’ve been prepping more and coming up with plans to keep the inspiration and consistency! Of course I want my blog to flourish, but I also have a whole life that needs me present. Balancing both can be a bit of a challenge, but I’m going to try my hardest to make it all work. I’ve worked extremely hard on my blog, and I’m so proud of how far it’s come in so little time. I know what I want for my blog this year, and I plan on achieving it. I will achieve it, watch me! Let’s do this 2019!
What are your goals for 2019 (personal or professional), and how do you plan on achieving them? If anyone would ever like to collaborate, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
