1 Year of Blogging & 2019 Goals!

Hey lovelies! On December 29th Foundations and Fairytales turned 1! I can’t believe I’ve been writing this blog for a whole year already, I knew I wanted to start a blog so I took the plunge straight away, I didn’t know what to expect at first but I’ve enjoyed every second of it!

I want to thank every single person who has supported this blog, the whole blogging community on Twitter is so kind, I’ve made some lifelong friends through blogging and I know I wouldn’t still be doing this without you guys helping me through the harder days!

I’ve had some great achievements this year including:

  • Reaching 1K blog followers
  • Reaching over 2.5K Twitter followers
  • Getting over 23K page views
  • This post getting over 1K views

I’ve also learnt some things in this past year such as:

  • Everyone feels ‘blogger guilt’ at certain times, I wrote a post on it here. If you don’t feel like writing or life gets in the way then don’t force a post just to stick to your ‘schedule’ because when you look back you probably won’t think it’s as good anyway!
  • 99% of the blogging community are super supportive, if you find someone who isn’t then just try to stay out of the drama they create, it’s not worth your time or energy!
  • I can be super unorganised most of the time when it comes to blog posts but having a plan of what you’re going to upload and when makes it so much easier
  • Scheduling tweets can be b o r i n g and very time consuming but it does help so I’d still recommend doing it every so often

There are still so many things I want to achieve in regards to blogging and just life in general which takes me on to my goals for 2019!

2019 Goals

Blogging

  • Get my head around Pinterest and start using it to promote my blog
  • Work with some brands I love
  • Be more organised with planning posts!

Reading

I don’t know how much time I’ll have for reading in the coming year, especially with the house move so I’m going to set my reading target lower and then I can raise it if I’m getting close!

  • Read at least 25 books
  • Clear my Netgalley shelf and give feedback for all of the books
  • Read at least 1 ‘classic’ novel

General Goals

  • Start running again and go as much as possible (I’m not setting a certain number of runs per week because I never stick to it)
  • Move into our own home
  • Stop buying so many takeaways and eat healthier!

I just want to say a big THANK YOU again to everyone of you who reads this blog! Let me know what your goals are for 2019 in the comments!
