Blogmas Day 14: ‘This Time Next Year’ Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Emily from EmaalyMaae to take part in this tag, thank you! With 2017 fast approaching I thought it would be the perfect time to set out my goals for the new year. I have a post coming up soon which talks about different goals I’ve set before my 25th birthday, so look out for that too!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Write your goals for next year.
  • Write how you’re going to achieve your goals.
  • Tag at least 5 of your blogger friends to share their goals.
  • If you wish, in 365 days write a post about whether or not you were successful!

My Goals for 2017:

  • Grow ‘TheLissaWay’
    Possibly every bloggers goal for the new year or throughout the year! 2016 saw me pluck up the courage to create my own place on the internet to share my love of all things beauty. I feel that I am a little fish in a very large ocean. I created my blog in the hope to talk beauty, fashion and lifestyle. I feel that I have been pretty beauty heavy and hope in 2017 to expand my blog with a variety of posts. Obviously, growing also means growing my audience and I hope to gain some more followers, in 9 months there are currently 167 of you (at the time of writing this anyway!). I am over the moon that that many of you are interested enough to follow and read my posts but hope to build on this number next year!
  • Figure out my Career Path
    Over the past year I have been thinking more and more about where I want my career to go. I’ve toyed with the idea of taking a course in the field I currently work in to help me gain more experience and widen my career options. I hope to make a firm decision early in 2017 and hopefully enroll!
  • Be More Confident in Myself
    I’ve hidden my blog from my ‘real life’ since I started it. There are only a handful of people who know about my blog! I feel that in 2017 I need to have more confidence in myself and share my blog on my TwitterInstagram and Facebook. I’ve not shared anything on these platforms about my blog, apart from adding it as my website on Twitter! Part of not sharing is because I’m not confident that what I’ve written is good enough! I worry about what people will think too! 2017 has to be the year I merge blog life and real life!
  • Take Chances and Risks
    I’m not one to be that spontaneous. I like to have a plan and stick to it and I like to know when I’ll be somewhere or doing something well in advance. I feel that I need to drop this attitude and be more up for being spontaneous and not saying I can’t go somewhere because I hadn’t planned to at that time. I feel that life will therefore be a lot less boring and structured! I need to take a chance on spending that extra bit of cash on something if it might help me in the long run – yes, I’m looking at you blog domains! So, maybe 2017 will be the year TheLissaWay gains its!

Those are my goals, pretty short and sweet. I feel that if I had anymore I’d be overwhelmed and probably wouldn’t work towards them all and would give up! But, as I said previously, I have a similar goals post coming soon to Blogmas so I recommend coming back for that!

The Bloggers I Tag:

I can’t wait to read all about your 2017 goals!
