OOTD: Denim Jacket & Blog Goals for 2018

Back and Better

Ahhh yes, it has been quite some time since I’ve made an actual fashion post featuring myself in real life and pieces I am actually loving and styling. I’m excited to share that I have officially graduated college and while I was only part-time in school this past semester I was also working full time and therefore had zero time for blogging, YouTube, Instagram, and being creative in general. However, I’ve pushed through this past month to begin creating again regardless of my limited time. It felt amazing to get back on the blogging train, to be posting daily on Instagram and making great videos on YouTube. I wanted to share with you a few of my goals and plans for both my blog and YouTube in today’s post. before I do that though, let’s take a look at today’s outfit of the day!

Coming off from a long break from blogging and YouTube can seem pretty daunting. It’s like starting your blog all over again. You’ve got to catch up with new trends, update broken pieces of your website, build back up your following, and frankly just restart your whole brand. At first thought, I was considering giving up on it all together and then I had the realization that blogging and YouTube were something that make me so happy. I love spending my free time creating, photographing, taking videos, editing, and so much more! Which is why I’ve decided to do it. To start over.
I’m making a commitment to myself to build and grow this community and platform. I’m prepared to put in the long hours and focus. I’m ready to bring you all amazing content and do it consistently. It’s time that I take this thing seriously and start working the way I’ve always wanted to on it.
A few things you can expect to see from me and my blog and channel are as follows:
1. 2-3 blog posts per week and 1-3 videos per week. This will be my ideal amount of content that I will be producing each week. I will alternate my blog posts with my videos so that if I don’t have a new blog post I should have a new video or a rest day and vise versus.
2. High-quality photos will become a regular and a must. I’ve adjusted my work schedule to allow me to now have time in the evenings to take photos for both my blog and Instagram and I can already tell it’s going to make a significant change in my content.
3. Daily Instagram/Twitter posts. Becoming more involved on these social channels is another huge goal I’ve set for myself. I will push to create fun and interactive daily photos and posts for both. Head on over and follow me on both so you don’t miss a post!
4. Community Growth. This is one of my main focuses for my blog and YouTube channel. I want to strive to create a community filled with women or men who are both uplifting, positive, and inspired. I want to create a community where we can all bounce ideas off of each other and support each other with advice and friendship.
Well, that’s it for now. I know with the new year just around the corner, I am truly looking forward to making a fresh start here on my platforms. Please head on over to my YouTube channel as well as Instagram and Twitter to make sure you’re getting updated every time I post new content!
