Welcome to the new year. The year of success! But to make this year a success, we, of course, need to get some things ready in this first month that will help us.
Like many people I started this year with some wild plans. And like may people some of those plans I will probably forget within the first few weeks and not think about again until the next year. But I really wanted to make and effort to get my business, blog and art goals going.
Therefore, I made sure I did these things in the first month (even the first week) that will help me make these things come through.
These things work for any goals, but I will be mostly talking about business and blogging.
New Year is the time for new years resolutions. If you are a well-organised person that has their life together, you probably did some actual planning and instead of me you already made some great goals already.
But I like planning at the last possible moment. And thus I write my goals in this post on the afternoon of the 31 of December. But then again, you should never wait for a specific time or date to start a new habit. (But if you are writing blog posts for the coming Monday, your name is Sofie, and you are busy for the entire next month, you should have started earlier.)
You just started up your new art or illustration blog. You are sharing all your new works, creating incredible content and getting ready to sell some work.
But then you run out of content ideas. You don’t draw fast enough to make a post every week, let alone more times a week. You are getting behind and not posting enough. Maybe even your social media is starting to lag.
You need more topics. You need more ideas, more options to fill your blog and editorial calendar with new content.
Ever get jealous looking at the perfectly styled pictures on other people’s blogs and Instagram? Because I do. And for the longest time, I didn’t know how I could get perfect blog photos myself.
Now granted a lot of those bloggers have better photography skills and better cameras, but they also have gorgeous stuff. I might not have the practice yet, and those cameras are expensive. But I can and will have pretty blog props that allow me to beautiful style my pictures.
Everybody deserves a break these holidays. But to actually relax and take a break can be hard. So how will you prepare and have a good relaxing break these holidays?
Imagine this; It is the last day before my break and instead of working on said break I’m running around stressing because I still need to make sure everything is done for the holidays. Not the most relaxed ways to start a break.
But when I am finally finished I want to have the most relaxing break I could possibly have. I have a whole bucket list of things I want to do! These will be great to relax a little and I hope you can too with the help of this list.
