2017 Plan of Action – No more ‘Winging It ‘

While most people were recovering from hangovers yesterday I was giving the house a good spring clean and chucking out all the old Cr*p we have acquired over the last year. Out went all my old size 8 jeans.I’m a healthy size 12 and quite happy with it so why keep on to things I don’t need. Next went all the kid’s old toys, ready for 1st charity bag that comes through the door this week and finally the baby clothes I have been hanging onto ‘ just in case’. I have been blessed with 2 healthy children and it’s time to give birth to something else, a new career. So far I have just been ‘winging it ‘ where my blog is concerned but if I ever want to make writing into a career I’m going to need a plan. So taking inspiration from the lovely Aby from You Baby Me Mummy I have written out my plan of action for 2017. I’m sharing it with you all so I can’t back out or slow the pace. 2017 is going to be the year of change for me with a new house, new career & new way of living ( fingers crossed I still have a husband)

    This sounds really achievable! Great goals. We are now going into my fifth calendar year of blogging and I still feel like I’m winging it. I’ll be making some clear goals this year! x

      Thank you. I wanted to set some realistic goals based on still working & travelling 4 days a week and having 2 under 5’s to look after on top of blogging. I hope to overachieve on everything but as long as i stay on track i will be happy 🙂 Thank you so much for commenting X

    Such a great idea to break it up into quarters. I love your goals. They’re al definitely achievable, you can do it! I really want to do a photography course too. I love the sound of your parents night out series. x

      I’m just coming into my 6th month of blogging so I didn’t want to bit off more than I could chew and set myself up to fail. Would i love to have made 10K by the end of 2017 , hell yes but if i get to 1K i will be happy. Thank you so much for commenting and i will send you an e-mail with the details of my blog series. If you want to join in them just pop it back to me 🙂

    Great goals and so well thought out. I’ve realised that I need to improve/include photos in my blog so a course may be a good option.

      I have a great fancy camera but sometimes it’s just easier to snap away on my Iphone. I do need to include some more quality shots 🙂

    I really need to do this! Love how you’ve broken down your goals so much, makes it much easier to put a plan in place to achieve them. x #TheList

    Sounds like some reasonable goals and well thought out. I still need to work mine out. Like Donna, I’m in year 5, and still haven’t got specific goals in place #thelist

    I love how this is broken down, it all seems much more manageable in chunks, I am going to do the same albeit a little but late!
