This year I have decided to take the first few days to actually work on my 2013 resolutions one of which includes learning to blog better and for me getting organized is the first step to think about. During 2012, I had mainly relied on all kinds of "calendar" apps on my iPod touch to get me sorted out but have come to the realization that it just isn't a proper blog organizer. (Which on that note, I really wished they made planners just for bloggers. How rad would that be?)
Twiddling through other people's posts I've come across several suggestions of the "sticky note" method to organize blog posts which seemed like the perfect thing for the ever shifting blog schedule. After several days of searching and editing, I've finally put together a satisfying blog binder with large monthly pages (find it from Maia The Bee here) for my stickies and which I can also add project pages for other lists and resource materials that I will be collecting. I love the visual quality of this format which allows me to see exactly what's coming up so I can work on it accordingly.
Some blog and personal goals...
- Buy a DSLR camera for blogging and filming. The camcorder isn't cutting it for me and I am itching to upgrade. This is top priority right now.
- Get educated on the art of filming, lighting, macro photography and possibly even some html so I can do what I love to do but better. There are also so many finer details about running a beauty blog that I need to learn from others.
- Loose the few extra pounds that just won't go away, you may not see where they ended up but I haven't been able to shake those extra 10 sneaky pounds for months! I've also realized I haven't been so happy trying on clothes recently so it's time to find something I love and get fit.
- I want to pick up on crafting again, so I'm setting myself to do one craft project a month minimum therefore I can start wearing the things I wanted to make. Being able to plan them out in advance means I can buy any materials I need ahead of time.
