I’m going to put my hands up right now and say I have not stuck to the schedule I set myself at the beginning of 2019, nor have I been all that pleased with my blog. I guess I’ve still been trying to figure out what I want to do with this blog and I only figured that out November/December of 2019. I didn’t stick to my schedule of posting every Wednesday and Saturday, although I did try my very hardest to start off with. Life had gotten in my way, some good, some bad and I was totally off my game, however, I’m ready to make something out of my blog this year and I can’t wait to see where it goes!


At the beginning of 2019, my confidence with regards to emailing authors to interview on my blog was at it’s lowest point and I never thought I could do it. However, that being said, I set myself a goal of five authors to interview throughout 2019 and I ended the year interviewing nine and probably could’ve squeezed more in if I had the time, so I am super proud of myself! That’s one blog goal of 2019 achieved, yay!

See all my author interviews here.


I haven’t collaborated with any bloggers, I have to admit and I set myself a goal of three, oopsies! However, I have communicated a lot more with bloggers this year and have made some wonderful friends so, maybe I have sort of hit this goal? 


I didn’t really go out searching for collaborations with brands in 2019, as life got in the way and I was concerned about being unable to stick to deadlines. In 2019, I told myself I would be proud of myself if I was able to collab with just one brand and I managed to collab with two – yay me! Both of these collabs came at times I really wasn’t expecting and I had so much fun with both. I would definitely love to work with them again in the future and many more!

    Although you did not make as much progress as you would have liked, it’s clear that you have paved the foundations for a successful so well done! (ps. I’m always up for a collaboration if you would like!)
