Did you guys like that wrap-up? I LOVED doing it, especially because I got to search up interesting things that happened! That was probably my favorite post, so I’ve decided…

NEWS [?]

I’ll be doing Monthly Wrap-ups! I’ve seen it on many blog since.. November I think? (Credits to anyone that’s currently doing it) And I’ve been wanting to start EVERY since. I was thinking Weekly Wrap-ups, but what if I don’t post that week? Conclusion: Monthly Wrap-ups it is!

On New Years, everyone is making resolutions, but I never really achieved them and/or I’d forget about them. Then I read a blog post about someone who instead of making resolutions would make goals, and I did some major thinking. Then I decided that’s what I wanted to do: Goals. I believe it will be much easier.

My blogging goals were up there but I’ll just explain them:

– Collaborations with many bloggers.

I haven’t done many collaborations but they look like fun! 

How I’m gonna do it: I’m thinking of doing a Collab-o-week, where that week I’d post about a collaboration I did with an other blogger. If you would like to collaborate with me (I’m too boring, aren’t I?) then please comment down below ⤵

– Learning and doing more DIY’s

DIY’s are what form this blog, and I’ve recently done lots of DIY’s that I will post about soon, but I want to learn more and be more creative. I think my DIY’s will mostly be centered around fashion because that is my favorite thing (Tied with DIY’s, obviously)  

How I’ll do it: I’ll find more DIY ideas with my Pinterest account (Go and follow it if you haven’t yet!) http://www.pinterest.com/OurLittleDIYCorner

– Get around 80-130 followers in total.

I got about 55-60 more followers this year and I’m super proud of that, generally because my first blogging year was very  slow🐌 . If I can get 50 more followers in 2017, I would be at about 120 followers [!] and I would be more than  happy ☺  

How I’ll do it: I think I might be writing lots of guest posts (Because they are so much  fun!) and discovering many new blogs. I will also be adding lots of Social Media, like Facebook. I only have Google + and I currently added Pinterest. I tried Twitter, but I have to give my phone number (And I am NOT doing that because I know my parents won’t give me permission, and I don’t want too.)

– Blog at least one a week.

 This one is totally achievable😄 because I got a new mint turquoise PLANNER! I’ve been wanting one FOREVER and I was bugging my mom about it, and I finally got it! 

How I’ll do it:  I’ll write down my ideas for posts, and write which day I’ll be posting. I’ll also be scheduling post wayyy earlier to make SURE I have Motivational Monday and Freaky Fridays once a month (Forgive me if I don’t post the Freaky Friday post) 

– Start/Continue: Blogger Of The Month (Hosted by Nathalia generally) Surprise Saturday (Book reviews, outfits: Anything that’s not related to DIYs) or Freaky Friday (Freaky DIY’s getting tested) or Motivational Mondays (Because no one likes Mondays, and I will turn that  frown🙍upside down.

I’ll continue Blogger of the Month for sure but I don’t know which one to choose. Freaky Friday? Surprise Sundays? Or Motivational Mondays? Maybe I could go by month? I think that I’ll do Motivational Mondays every week, and Surprise Sundays when ever I feel like it, and Freaky Fridays every month (once). Does that sound good👍? 

How I’ll do it: Uh, scheduling?

– Get Nathalia to blog more

She dosen’t really blog much (And I think I should be busier with setting up my new blog that will be debuting on January 1rst. I’m so excited!!) so I want to get her more motivated. 

How Ill do it: ILL FORCE HER MUAHHHH 😈😈😈😈

*Before I continue: The reason I’m doing 12 goals 🎯 is because I’m going on 12 years old! And twelve is my lucky 🍀 number ^ω^.

12 Lifestyle/Personal goals:
