2018 Goals

I decided to do something a little different today.  I have a couple major life improving goals in mind that I want to work toward in 2018, as well as blog goals.

Blog Goals

I started this blog on July 13, 2017 after a long time of wanting to blog.  Creative Writing was my strong point in school, so I figured that I could join the beauty blogging community and write about stuff I love.  I know I’m kinda late to the game.  32 years old and just finding a good hobby.  But makeup is my passion, it gives me confidence I never had before and motivates me in ways I never thought possible.  Gives me an escape from a long history of battling depression and anxiety.  That’s how I am- I have to have something to work towards to keep going.

This blog gives me that.  I love planning my next post or review.  I love learning how to create a bangin eye look, currently working on perfecting my cut crease.

So my blog goals for 2018 are:

  1. Keep growing my audience
  2. Invest in a better camera.  As much as I love my iPhone, I need a better camera!
  3. Purchase my own domain name and upgrade to a paid plan
  4. Get over my fear of hearing myself on a video- this anxiety I have hinders me from ever doing anything on YouTube.
  5. Continue to grow on Influenster.  This is one of my top goals-  I love getting Vox Boxes to review!  Hoping I will get a makeup box soon.
  6. Start scheduling blog posts.  I am bad at this.  I will literally get an idea to write about, start writing, then abandon it.  I need some organization with this.

 

Life Goals

Where to begin?  This has been a really good year for me and my family both financially and personally, but of course there are a few things I need to work on.

  1. SOCIAL ANXIETY has got to go!  I am so sick of being uncomfortable around people.  Whether I am driving or shopping in a store, I always feel like people are rushing me or getting pissed.  What the hell is this???
  2. Health- I need to cut back on the sugar,  I am a complete candy maniac and Blow Pops are my weakness.  Invested in a new Fit Bit and already have a nice treadmill at home, so I am going to get back into that!
  3. Work- I have 2 Associates Degrees, one in General Studies and the other in Health Information Technology.  I work in Health Information which is a glorified Medical Records person, but I would really love to be able to work from home doing remote medical coding, so I will be working on getting an additional certification this year!  It’s so dang expensive to take courses!  But I have my mind set on it and I will do it eventually.
  4. Money-  I can definitely be a compulsive buyer, and tend to hoard beauty items.  I just cancelled my BoxyCharm subscription which is $21 a month because I feel like I am getting too much and can’t use it all.  I am keeping my ipsy, Sephora, MorpheMe, and Facetory boxes because I get good use out of all of those.  I just can’t keep going into product overload.  Also, I have been using the Ibotta app alot lately and have already earned more than $40 this month alone.  Since they give you the option of cashing out through PayPal or a gift card and offer Sephora gift cards, I will be redeeming my earnings for Sephora!

 

Well this turned into a very lengthy post and I got waayy personal there for a minute!  Hope you enjoyed my Goals post!
