6 Blogging Mistakes I've Made & Need To Change ASAP

I have made my fair share of blogging mistakes, and I think it's time for me to admit and rectify them.

As much as it's important to highlight all the great things you've archived and the goals you've met, it's also as important to talk about things on the opposite scale of the spectrum. There is nothing wrong with admitting what you've done wrong, or haven't done so well, as long as you take the time to understand them and work to make them better. Whether you ask for feedback, or you can be brutally honest with yourself, it's always a good thing to think about how you can make improvements, big or small. It's all part of the growing and learning process.

I've already written about how I'm going to help myself this year, now it's the turn of my dear blog. As we reached the end of last year, I surprised myself a little and really thought about how I'm going to make myself, and my blog better. I'm not saying I turned into a Negative Nancy, but I could clearly see how much I grew as a person in one single year and didn't want to cloud myself with too much positivity to stop me progressing. I don't want to nitpick at the small aspects of change that wouldn't really create a big impact. I'm going straight to the parts that I know I've been putting off and trying to forget about, but it's time to make those changes.

Why I'm Making 2018 All About Me

Why I'm Making 2018 All About Me

New year, new me.

New year, same me... just with some improvements.

What I love about a new year is how we have a significate amount of time to reflect on. Personally, I always think about who I was at the start of the year, and who I'm taking with me into the new year. I look back over the year and pick out the memories that stand out for me the most; the good and the bad. The things I said I would do but didn't, and the things I said I would never do, but did. The people who have come into my life, and the ones who have left. My proudest moments, and those times I felt amazing.

On The 24th Day

On The 24th Day

On the 24th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

..one hell of a proud blogger!

I have completed 24 consecutive posts; 8 food posts, 8 diy posts, and 8 lifestyle posts. Having seen the result of 3 months of planning, writing, making, baking, photographing, and editing come together has given me a sense of pride and accomplishment nothing else in blogging has ever done.

Blogmas for me was more than just blogging. I wouldn't say it was a test to see if I could do it, it was more of a challenge to see if I had enough focus, drive and ambition to complete something I've been trying to do since I started blogging in 2014.

5 Books I'm Hoping Are Under My Christmas Tree

5 Books I'm Hoping Are Under My Christmas Tree

My aim was to read 20 books this year, and I failed.

Miserably!

I started the year off and ended it with a good reading pattern, but it was the bit in the middle that had zero reading. I say the "middle" like it's nothing. 7 whole months of very little reading. Not good. Just like having new stationary makes you want to work that bit harder, having pretty interesting books makes me want to pick up a book and read. I am not the fastest reader but give me a good book and I'll have a lot of trouble putting it down. I'm not going to lie, half of my brain is currently focused on a book I recently started reading, and wish I was reading right now.

Mini Santa's Sack Place Cards

Mini Santa's Sack Place Cards

I've taken out my needle and thread once again, but sadly, for the very last time.

This is the very last diy for blogmas, and I'm finishing it off in the best way possible.

We've made decor for our home and tree. We've sewn cards and embroidery hoops. We've wrapped our gifts, prepared crackers, and now there is only one last thing to prepare for our Christmas tables; the place cards.

The Ultimate Christmas Popcorn Mix

We are only a few days away from the big day, and hopefully, you have bought and wrapped all your presents, have finished all your work commitments, and have now found a place on the sofa that you’re not going to move from for the next week, while you're watching your favourite Christmas movie. Well, what is the best accompaniment to a movie... popcorn!

Of course, I would have a popcorn mix dedicated to Christmas. Why would you expect anything less?

DIY Christmas Crackers

DIY Christmas Crackers

Today we are making a Christmas tradition; crackers.

I don't want to complain, but have you noticed how much the price of crackers go up every year?

And the gifts are always the same, and that red fortune teller fish has never been right. That's why I made a promise to myself to make my own, and here they are.

It might take a little longer than buying a pack from the shop, but at least you can fill them with what you want.
