Change and consistency

I have loved watching my blog grow and develop over the last fourteen months and am really happy with the progress I have made from my original posts. I started this blog as a way of documenting all the different things in my life that make me happy, something I would be able to look at in fifty years to remember all the different things I had done and achieved. I have also used it as a platform to make new and amazing friends through out the world. However 2011 has started with a little bit of a blog identity crisis.

I want more consistency in what I am blogging about. Not only for people who read my blog but I feel it will make me a better blogger if I have weekly goals and am setting out to produce specific posts that run with the overall theme of my blog.

So what can you expect in 2011.....
From Sunday the 16th January I will be starting a weekly feature which in essence is 'a week in review'. I have attempted to introduce this a number of times but think I may finally have found a format that will allow me to make it a constant feature.

In late January early February I will be starting a series called "Celebrating friendship" which I am really excited for. The posts will be running on Wednesdays and a number of wonderful bloggers are already on board.

In the pipeline is a once a week fashion post this wont be starting until May/June and is a twist on the traditional fashion posts.

Other then that the same old thing will be happening on the blog- mail, book reviews, obsession posts, reflections, shopping, personal posts etc I just wanted to add some weekly posts that I can work on and develop.

Wow this has been a wordy post congrats if you made it to the end.. It is something I wanted to write more for myself to get my thoughts out and my goals written down. If you have any suggestions I would be happy to hear them.

  2. This is a great idea to help you focus, Megan. I'm going to try to do the same. I've got a few weekly features, but I want to be a better blogger (and hit at least 100 followers) this year!

    Can't wait to be part of your celebrating friendship series!

    Happy Weekend!

  3. I love that you're being so organised with your blog - sounds like a great way to structure the year ahead. Think I'm going to do something similar and make my own list of weekly features and plans for my blog in 2011, as I've got a few ideas but they haven't really taken shape yet!
