Spoilers! 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

Happy (late) New Year geeks! 2017 was amazing for A Geeky Gal, and 2018 was no different. I posted more, commented more, and just feel overall more confident in my blog. It honestly gives me a lot of excitement to see how much farther I can take my blog in 2019!

I couldn’t have done so well this year though without all of you and my fellow bloggers. Matt at Normal Happenings has been instrumental in giving advice and being a sounding board for ideas, and his collaborations as well as him letting me have given me more confidence as a writer/blogger. He also helped me get my first YouTube video up this year so I’m looking forward to doing more of those! All of that brings me to my resolutions for 2019.

Blog Resolutions for 2019

  • Post at least one YouTube video a month.
  • Have 750 WordPress followers (437 currently).
  • Have 200 Facebook likes (138 currently).
  • Have 500 Instagram followers (356 currently).
  • Complete a new 30 Day Blog Challenge.
  • Host a giveaway.
  • Interview 3 geeky people.
  • Post more mental health content as it relates to gaming/anime/etc.
  • Blog daily for one month (not including a 30 Day Blog Challenge).
  • Update photos of myself on the blog.

Make YouTube videos has been a goal for years but I think this year will be the year that it becomes obtainable! I’m also trying to set obtainable goals for my social media, but I have a hard time getting Facebook and Instagram followers so I fully expect not to meet those goals this year. Some of these resolutions are making a comeback from last year as they are still things I want to do like the 30 Day Blog Challenge and hosting a giveaway.

Part of my YouTube channel is going to be interviews so I’m very excited to meet the goal of 3 interviews this year.I’ve also really enjoyed posting about mental health in the past so I would like to start incorporating that into my more geeky posts. Unlike having a prompt for 30 Days, I’d like to try a month of just daily blogging so I can explore myself more as a writer. Last but not least is updating the photos of myself on the blog, because I obviously lost weight and look different now!

Personal Resolutions for 2018

  • Reach my goal weight. Get healthy and fit!
  • Continue to work on my mental health.
  • Finish the Library. Finally.
  • Create 5 game-ready 3D models for my portfolio.
  • Curate my style.
  • Save up for a house.
  • Cultivate one new skill.
  • Take a vacation.
  • Travel somewhere, anywhere.
  • Attend a convention.

If you follow my personal Instagram account, you already know I am doing away with the scale at home for the moment. I got a trainer who is overhauling my eating habits and helping me get stronger and fitter. I hope to continue bettering my mental health this year too. I am no where near close to having the Library finished so that is coming back for this year’s resolutions. I haven’t been able to work on my portfolio as much as I would like so I’m also bringing back that goal.

Instead of an unobtainable Pinterest closet, I’d like to come with my own sort of “uniform” and curate my current closet to benefit me. Alec and I are hoping to have our down payment for a home saved up by the end of the year. I also want to gain one new skill this year. I’m not sure what yet! Leave me some suggestions in the comments. The last three resolutions are about getting away: I want to take a vacation, travel somewhere (maybe nearby), and attend a convention to help get me out of the house and away from technology.

What are your resolutions for this year? What skill do you think I should add to my life? Do you have any vacation or travel ideas for me? Leave me a comment below!

  1. Your post is what inspired me to write my resolutions (which I forgot to link back to in my post, stupid brain farts). Honestly, seeing bloggers like you and Matt and everyone from the Games that Define Us collab inspired me to get back on my game.

    I think you can achieve a lot of these goals if you work hard like you did last year! Now if i can just practice what I preach myself everyone will be happy.

    1. It’s truly inspiring to see what other bloggers that I look up to are doing! It makes me want to reach a little higher and work a little harder. 🙂 I’m going to do my best this year to reach those goals! I’d like to have them ALL crossed off this time!

  2. A Happy Late New Years to you too! Good luck getting that house. The struggle will have been worth it! I also have a goal of cultivating a new skill. So I’m trying my hand at drawing this year, and seeing where it takes me. I’m hoping to get good enough that I can do both digitally, and manually at ease. I still got a lot of work to do, but I’ll stick with it! Hope you accomplish those goals this year too!

  3. If I had given myself proper resolutions this year, I think they’d read something similar to yours. These look incredibly attainable, and if anyone can do it, you can! I’m looking forward to seeing your progress along the way – especially how you curate your style, and your library.
