This past week marked my second year since Luxe & Loaded went live!
Happy Blogiversary to me! 🎉
A two year commitment is a lot in a relationship. Could be make or break point for some. A big milestone. The deciding factor year to whether something is magical and turning into real love. Or, realizing you’ve developed different interests and don’t love it as much as you did in the beginning.
For me, it’s the first part.
I’m super excited about this blog and I can’t wait to continue to try new things and watch it flourish!
I took some time to read my 1st year post and see what goals I had set for myself to accomplish for this blog. And let me tell you, I pretty much accomplished none of them.
Yes. I suck.
It’s not that they were hard goals or tasks I had set for Luxe & Loaded. Turns out 2018 was a very draining year and I was not prepared to balance work, life, wedding and blog.
Something had to give.
I wanted to write more blog posts than I did the year before. I wanted to introduce more videos to my posts and Instagram. I wanted to start a Youtube channel. I even had plans to do a whole wedding series!
It started out that way… but then I slacked and none of that happened.
Though, surprisingly my numbers were up!
Even with less posts, I actually got slightly more views and visitors than I had the previous year – woo hoo!
And that goes to show me I’m headed in the right direction with L&L. So I’m allowing myself a do-over for my blog goals – No shame.
So once again – Let’s get it done!
What’s gonna be different this year?
For one, I don’t have a wedding to plan in another country.
Secondly, I don’t have a wedding to plan in another country – yes I said that twice because you don’t know until you do it! And I had no professional help, but I digress.
Thirdly, I’m being selfish and putting myself first this year… scratch that.
I’m putting my creative self first.
I miss creative Steph. For a while, I lost touch with that aspect of me. So I’m going to make an effort to pay more attention to that side of me. Plus, I have to be, because I’m broke af this year so not as many shopping hauls or travels – womp womp.
Though I’m feeling good about blogging in 2019.
It’s all about positive energy, perseverance and of course, having fun creating.
Once again, as they say on the Bachelor – we’re going to go on this an amazing journey together.
And I can’t wait to spend another year with you!
