Spoilers! Blog + Personal Resolutions

It’s been quite a year on A Geeky Gal blog. I re-branded, gained more AND new traffic, found my writing groove, and even started utilizing social media to meet other bloggers. I’ve had this blog for 4 years, and I have never felt as motivated to continue blogging as I do today.

One of the things I’m most proud of is my new branding. I feel like it’s definitely more “me” and more of the look I wanted. There’s still some changes coming though for the look and feel of the site. I also want to expand to Youtube! I really feel like I can reach more people and more geeks by creating vlogs and Youtube content which brings me to my blog resolutions for this year!

Blog Resolutions for 2018

  • Finish website changes
  • Create a Youtube channel
  • Make pinnable images for ALL blog posts
  • Have 150 WordPress followers (91 currently)
  • Have 100 Facebook likes (68 currently)
  • Have 300 Instagram followers (202 currently)
  • Complete a 30 Day Blog Challenge
  • Guest post for at least 2 bloggers
  • Do a ‘Let’s Play’ for Youtube
  • Host a giveaway

 

I usually don’t make resolutions because I never keep them. This year feels different though. I decided to focus on small goals that I knew I could complete so that hopefully it’ll push me to do even more. I have lost almost 40 pounds and want to reach my fitness goals this year. I also want to add to my portfolio and plan on giving it the attention is deserves. Here’s 10 of my personal resolutions for the New Year.

Personal Resolutions for 2018

  • Reach my goal weight
  • Make my Pinterest closet dreams come true
  • Read one book a month (or 12 in a year)
  • Finish the Library
  • Design 10 branding boards for my portfolio
  • Create 5 game-ready 3D models for my portfolio
  • Pay off debt (not including school loans)
  • Generate a second income
  • Learn HTML/CSS
  • Take a vacation

  1. Awesome resolutions! The guest post and 30 day blog challenge sounds interesting!

    I hope to read at least 24 books this year, find some internships, and work more with photography. I always say I’ll try developing my own film but never do πŸ˜› hopefully that will change this year.

  2. I wish you luck with your resolutions for the blog and personally. I’m intrigued by 30 day blog challenges but I also realised I’d probably not finish it. Maybe one day though. I hope you manage all of these.

  3. You’ve set yourself a lot of targets. I love the Library, by the way. Looks awesome. It is possible you have more books than me. Having your own space is good in a house. I converted my spare room into my office/Library, and since I live alone my Living Room became my personal space. It works quite well.
    A 30 day blogging challenge sounds pretty daunting, and I am saying that knowing I have stuff scheduled four times a week, weeks in advance. But, I wish you success in that as with you other goals of learning programming, becoming debt free and all those cool things. All the best!
