To boldly go…

#330: An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2015 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self improvement!

Good question! Last year, one of my resolutions was to complete WordPress’ 365 Days of Writing Prompts challenge, which I think (minus the odd missed days – thanks Norway press trip!) I’ve managed to achieve.

Since I love self improvement, I’ll no doubt set a quite few various resolutions. Amongst them will probably be – to travel abroad at least twice (I’ve never had two holidays in one year); to finally move into London (it’s been a dream ever since I started working in central back in 2012); to progress in my career – whether it be in magazines/publishing, video editing/presenting/producing or even PR; to take part in more video interview/junkets and video projects; and no doubt to learn something new – whether it be mastering photography, finally learning British Sign Language through official tuition or even taking classes on a particular video editing software… I just love being a sponge!

#141: When you started your blog, did you set any goals? Have you achieved them? Have they changed at all?

To be quite honest, I didn’t set any goals when I started this (my first) blog! I simply wanted to create it as a method of improving my writing ability – it was to be a bonus if anyone liked it enough to follow it. All I can say, is thank goodness people have! It has given me such a confidence boost to see my stats increase day by day, through views and the occasional (much appreciated) comment 😀 I could never thank my followers enough for the support they have shown me!

I guess, when I think about it, the only goal I set in relation to this blog, was to complete 365 Days of Writing Prompts challenge without missing a single day. So far, so good! Fair enough, I have substituted some of the prompts with my own rebellious content but I have still published a post every single day, since the 1st January and I don’t plan on finishing until 31st December!
