Well crikey it's that time of the year again, and I'm dropping the old cliche of how quickly 2015 has gone and here we are entering 2016. It's fair to say I've really had my ups and downs this year with getting engaged to James back in August, meeting some of my closest blogging friends, a new job which I start next week and the downwards spiral of my health towards the end of the year. But enough of my highs and lows, and instead lets lighten things up with my blogging resolutions for 2016 and here's hoping I'll stick to them this year!
Become more organised
Now I started off well going into 2015, becoming more organised with my blog and content but then I fell off the bandwagon and jumped back into the old un-organised me. So this year I want to stick to it - this means putting my pretty notebooks to use to create lists for post ideas whether this be in the middle of the afternoon or just as I'm going to bed - whenever inspiration strikes, take bulk photos on a weekend until we get better light and just generally put my thinking cap on and maybe even schedule a post or three!
Blog about more than reviews
If you are a reader of CharmedCharlee you will know that my blog is around 80% reviews, and only towards the end of last year I began to scope new topics that meant I wasn't keeping up with the Jones' and buying new makeup after makeup but instead shopping my stash and thinking of features using products I already own. This year I want to do more of this as I think it helps break content up because I know as a reader there are only so many reviews you can read of the latest beauty launches.
Focus on Instagram
Towards the end of 2015 I started really getting into Instagram and I want this to continue in 2016! This means looking into the idea of Instagram themes and regularly uploading content, searching tags and finding new users to follow without taking it all too seriously and just having fun. As photography is something I really enjoy I know the passion spreads into Instagram, as I not only love to take great looking pics but I also love discovering gorgeous photos.
Another failed resolution, I'm so bad at keeping them aren't I? Well 2016 will be the year that I sit in front of the camera and upload something to YouTube, whether it be a haul, tutorial or even just me rambling - I will do it! I've really enjoyed watching videos over the past couple of months, beauty videos especially and I'm hoping to give myself the kick up the butt I need and hit the record button.
Attend more blogger meet ups
During 2015 I was able to not only meet some of my close blogger friends, but I was able to attend more blogger meet ups. This may sound like a cheat resolution, but this is something I'd like to continue during 2016, I've met some of the most loveliest people through blogging and events and some of whom I'd consider really close friends and talk to everyday - so I cannot wait to see what 2016 brings venturing to new locations and discovering even more of your friendly faces.
So there we have it my short and hopefully sweet blogging resolutions for 2016. I'd love to know if you've set yourself any blogging or personal resolutions!
