I took a break for the past few days to spend time with friends and family, practice self-care, and map out how I want this year to go. Last year I set goals and pushed myself to Do Better and it resulted in me becoming [somewhat] more consistent and realizing the value I have on the platforms I’ve created. I decided that my goal for 2017 will be Growth.
Grow /ɡrō/ verb
- to become larger or greater over a period of time; increase.
- cause (something, especially a business) to expand or increase.
On Social Media
Since starting photo funday at the end of the summer, I started posting better quality photos and saw more engagement online. I finally hit milestones on Twitter and Instagram and hope to continue the trend of gaining more followers through my online platforms.
While I do blog for fun, it has developed into a business for me whether it be through a sponsored post, becoming a brand ambassador or hosting an event. I get tons of social media and travel questions offline, so I’m looking to grow a business out of it within the coming months.
Contrary to most bloggers, I am not looking to quit my job and blog full time anytime soon. I enjoy writing about my experiences, but I love working in the technical field. This year I’m looking forward to new responsibilities that are being presented to me on the job; hopefully, a new position will come out of it.
What goals have you set in place for 2017?
