I’m not actually sure if anyone even read my blog this time last year but if anyone did, you may have read my 2016 Goals post in which I moaned on about going to the gym more often and drinking more water (such fun). I’ll save you the lengthy update on those ‘goals’ (they didn’t happen) but I did want to update you on the blogging goals so here I am!
The first thing I mentioned in that post was improving my photography, I’d just purchased my first DLSR camera and had very little idea how to use it. Has this changed? Not particular, I definitely have a better idea on what I’m doing but there’s still so much more I could learn.
Below is a picture I took for a post from about January 2016 and the second picture is from about September/October, the improvement isn’t huge but I’m pretty happy with the progress and I’m looking forward to spending 2017 getting to know my camera even better.
The next thing I mentioned was my blog design, I mentioned I’d like to start learning simple coding in order to be able to customised my blog more during the year but what I actually did was just by a Pipdig theme and leave it all up to him. Since taking the plunge and buying the theme I haven’t once thought about changing the design again, I love the way it now looks and, if there is anything I want changing I know a quick DM to Pipdig and it’ll all be solved within a few days.
Finally, I focused on some good old numbers, I, like everyone, wished to gain a few more followers over on my Twitter and Instagram accounts. My goals were as follows;
On the day I’m writing this I can well and truly say I’ve smashed those goals this year, currently on Instagram I have a total of 282 and a Twitter following of 1018. To say I’m pretty chuffed with this is an understatement.
