I'm very pleased to say that Lovely Witches has just turned one! I am so happy to have kept this blog going for a year, and to still say that I love writing it. I want to say thank you to all of you who read my blog, send me wonderful comments and tweets and always make me smile. The cruelty-free and blogging communities are absolutely brilliant and I am always inspired by what other bloggers are creating. Writing this blog has made me more motivated, more self disciplined and always pushes me to try harder. So I thought that now might be a good time to look back at my blogging goals for 2015 to see what I've achieved.
Improve my photography
I would definitely like to say I've improved on this! After many months of borrowing my sister's camera for my blog photos, I hope to get my very first DSLR camera of my own soon. I also really like editing photos, it's a relaxing thing to do in the evenings whilst listening to music and podcasts.
Write varied content
I'd completely forgotten that I had set this goal! I'm actually quite happy to be beauty focused, particularly as my aim is to help others find cruelty-free products they love. But I would like to throw some more lifestyle posts into the mix as I really enjoy reading them on other blogs.
I feel like I'm actually starting to get a handle on this now and that I'm getting a lot more done than I used to. This means getting up earlier, enjoying my free time more and spending less time procrastinating on my phone. Small habits build up to make a big difference!
Find a style
This is another goal I'd forgotten about?! Earlier this year, I bought a new blog template from Pipdig that I love (I'd certainly recommend them). Now I get to spend more time writing blog posts instead of trying to fix the endless little things on my blog layout that I wasn't happy with before. Hooray!
Go to a blogger meetup
This is the only goal I set that is super specific and the only one I haven't really achieved - yet! I did go to a blogger event in March to do some crafting which was really fun, so I'd certainly like to go to more creative events like that plus a blogger meet-up this year.
And now over to you guys - I'd really love to know what you want to see more of here on this blog, what you want to see less of and any other feedback you have for me. So I've set up this little questionnaire to find out! I will be forever grateful if you fill it in :) Also this week I'll be hosting my second ever giveaway to celebrate my first year of blogging and say thank you, so check back for that!
