Spoilers! 2021 Blog, YouTube + Personal Resolutions

Happy New Year, geeks! 2020 was hard year for all of us, and I know I’m not alone in saying that I hope 2021 is kinder and that I’m so glad 2020 is over. We’re not out of the woods yet with the pandemic, and many of us are still struggling, but I’m choosing to look forward to what else 2021 will (hopefully) give us. I hope you will too despite the hand we’ve been dealt.

In the last few years, there has been immense growth on my blog. This past year has been steady with a slight uptick in views and visitors compared to the year before last. I even gained about 300 followers! My YouTube channel also passed 150 subscribers! For someone who blogs and makes videos as a creative outlet and for fun, I feel very happy with the growth I’ve seen. I’ve had to think long and hard about what I want to focus on this year and how 2020 has shaped my future personal and blog resolutions. So let’s look at those 2021 resolutions now.

Spoilers! A Look at 2020 Blog + Personal Resolutions

Spoilers! A Look at 2020 Blog + Personal Resolutions

We have finally made it to the end of 2020. Back in June, I chatted about where I was at with the resolutions I made at the beginning of 2020. This year has been full of ups and downs for everyone. 2020 has by far been one of the hardest years for my blog and my mental health. I’ve had more breaks and hiatuses than planned. Regardless, I wanted to take a look at my 2020 resolutions that I set at the beginning of the year to see how far I’ve come, how my goals have changed, and what I want to work on next year! 2021 resolutions are coming January 4th! (Please let 2021 be better!)

My break gave me a fresh perspective on my blog, YouTube channel, and my personal life. I’ve made great strides towards some of these resolutions, but others have fallen to the wayside (as they do sometimes), and that’s okay!

Spoilers! Mid Year-2020 Blog + Personal Resolutions

It’s that time of the year where I check in on all of the resolutions I made at the beginning of 2020! I like to do these mid-year refreshers to see what I need to continue working on and what is near accomplishment if it hasn’t already been completed. Like last year, I took a break in May to focus on my mental health and self care. Like everyone else, I have been struggling with self isolation and needed some time away to care for myself.

My break gave me a fresh perspective on my blog, YouTube channel, and my personal life. I’ve made great strides towards some of these resolutions, but others have fallen to the wayside (as they do sometimes), and that’s okay!

Spoilers! What’s On My Bucket List?

Spoilers! What’s On My Bucket List?

This post first appeared on a very old blog of mine several years ago. In the spirit of the New Year, I decided to update it, and post it here for everyone to see. Maybe it will even give you some ideas for your own bucket list!

“Carpe Diem – to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future.” Or “seize the day.” Or “life is too short.” Or “when in Rome”. Or “you only live once.” Or “now or never.” So many names for just one word: live.

This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness. Mainly, my own happiness. I’ve always have had a hard time focusing on myself. I always feel bad, like my attention should be elsewhere, like on work or school or family or friends. While those things are important, I am still important too.

I’ve shared a lot with my readers, and I’m not going to stop now. I’ve made myself a bucket list of 100 things I want to do before I “kick the bucket.” There’s no time like now, right? I’m working on a few of these presently, but I’m honestly excited to start marking these things off. I know these things will make me happy, and I hope after reading my bucket list, you’ll make your own.

There’s been immense growth on my blog the last few years. I have so many new and returning readers! My YouTube channel even passed 100 subscribers! My latest 30 Day Challenge has been my favorite challenge so far, and I can’t wait for this year’s 30 Day Challenge. I’m officially ready for what the year has in store for me and my blog! Now let’s talk resolutions for 2020.
