2020 New Year’s Reflections and Resolutions

I missed you guys so much! A lot has happened since I took a forced hiatus in November. My laptop that was my baby died, I did A LOT of traveling, and I was diagnosed with tendonitis in my wrist. I have a new laptop now, you will get lots of travel posts, and the tendonitis… well… I hope it’ll stop bothering me soon.

The time off has given me a lot to think about in terms of this blog and my goals for the New Year. I’ve noticed I don’t get as much done as I would like to and I think a large part of that is fear. So, I’m doing this post to have something to reflect back on, but also keep myself accountable.

On the blog

There are some other things I want to do on the blog:

I’ve been afraid. Since moving to Wisconsin I’ve been afraid of myself and my abilities and I’ve been undermining them for the last year. I’ve also been hiding my truth and things that need to be said from loved ones. I’m stuck in a job that doesn’t treat me with the worth I deserve because for the longest time I thought I deserved it. It stops now.

Personal Goals for 2020

So personal goals for 2020: find a new job, monetize this blog, and actually pay attention to my Patreon. It’s time to stop TALKING about these projects I want to do and start acting like the #GirlBoss that can achieve them.

I also want to start going to the gym again, get back into a therapist’s office, and focus on my wellness because nothing else is more important.

So, I pose the question to all of you:

What do you want to see happen on this blog in 2020?

Are you excited for merch? If so what type of merch are you interested in?

Are you sad I’m moving away from a more strictly “book blog” and moving into lifestyle?

What kinds of content would you like to see more of?

Tell me everything and let me know your New Year’s Resolutions are in the comments!

To keep up with these new projects:

I would also be eternally grateful if you guys signed up for my Patreon (if you can, if not I totally get it) as it will help me achieve all these goals and dreams and make this blog even more amazing for you all! It also allows me to give you all awesome perks!

Happy New Year!
