I learned a lot about myself this year, as I do every year. Blogging was a crucial resource to me as this year came to a close. With the launch of a new blog and a new brand, I feel more ready than ever to really push myself, and work towards making those dreams in the back of my notebooks a reality.
A lot of the things I want to do require me to step way outside of the limits of my comfort zone. As scary as that feeling may be, the feeling of “what if” is ten times more frightening.
There are a few things that I really want to channel my energies into at the start of the new year:
Creating the ‘And Yes To Joy’ Newsletter. This is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I hope to have my first little dose of inspiration in inboxes by the end of January.
A New Series. After the Learn + Love Your Blog series proved to be such a success, I knew I wanted to get another one together. It will begin at the start of the year, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I don’t want to reveal what the series will focus on just yet, but I’m thrilled about it.
Offering Premium Downloads. I’ve had such an entrepreneurial spirit within me this year. One of the major thoughts I had in mind when I first re-branded was that I wanted my brand and blog to be marketable, and to generate business. It is so important for me to be self-sufficient, and I know that I’m more than able.
Design. I’ve been resisting this for a while, but there is no denying that I love designing, building brands, making blogs feel like home to bloggers. In 2014, I absolutely want to open my own design shop! I’ve been writing and planning and gethering feedback for a while now. I’m hoping to have this launched by late February/ early March.
Are you thinking about your goals for 2014 yet? What’s on your agenda?
