2014 Blogging Goals

Happy 2014, everyone! I hope y’all had a fun & safe time ringing in the new year! I sure did. Around this time each year I begin reflecting on the past 365 days. What was good, what was bad, and what could use improvement. 2013 for me was one of the best years. It included a lot of changes, but most of them were positive and uplifting ones. I honestly cannot complain about the past year. I was blessed beyond measure. I was certainly blessed on this blog. I have been writing here for almost three years, and each year it has become more and more of a happy place for me to come and share my life and my fashion with y’all.

In 2014 I want to devote even more of my time to this blog and my readers. I want to open up and share more of my life with you! While I will be the first to admit I am absolutely terrible at making goals and sticking to them, I have a list of Blogging goals that I am determined to stick to this year to really make 2014 great here! Stay tuned for some fun posts and a new look coming pretty soon to start Life with Emily off right for 2014! I’m ready for some good change in 2014, how about you?

What are some of your New Years Resolutions? (Blogging or otherwise?)

  1. I love your list! It's totally inspired me to write my own. I definitely want to get more organized and make more connections and friendships too. 🙂

    Hope you have a great New Year! I've so enjoyed reading your blog in the last year.

  5. Thanks for sharing your goals! It's fun to read what's on your mind in the background of all the lovely outfits. I would love to hear back in the future what books you read about blogging and which ones you liked or didn't

  10. This is such a great idea for a blogging resolution. One of my goals is to comment more on the blogs I like reading which is why I'm no longer lurking. Happy New Year 🙂

  11. I love these, i'm totally with you in terms of your blogging goals. I hope to do the same! I have a few NYR's this year some of which are to learn the basics of coding, learn 1 new recipe each month, and to join a book club!

    Happy New Year!

    Love these goals!! I definitely want to grow my blog in 2014, learn more about the business, build more relationships and I really want to attend a blog conference! Also learn to use my remote I just got for my camera. I started making an editorial calendar last year and it has been such a help! I just made a blog book that I am going to do a how to next week on my blog and that has made a big difference for me as well as far as organization (another blog goal – stay more organized).

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
