My Blogging Resolutions for 2019?

Blogging Resolutions

Hmm… resolutions! These sound so determined. So full of positivity. Almost sounds like everything will be alright, we just have to follow a path. But, is it really this easy? I used to make some good 3-4 resolutions each year while in school. I will try to be a morning riser – I will study hard -I will sleep less; are a few I remember. And… of course, not even 15 days in January, I would start losing it. Not knowingly, of course. I’d tell myself each morning- just five more minutes, or that I will definitely, 100% start from the next day. And, as they say, tomorrow never comes, and so it never came for me. So, perhaps, no blogging resolutions too, eh?

Wait a minute, did I say no Blogging Resolutions?

Well, to clear the picture, I still haven’t made any resolutions, per se. But, I have made some reservations for my blogging. It’s been a year I have been blogging. And must I say it has been fantabulous. Surrounded by an amazing blogging community, running through challenging campaigns, and working my way up and up, has been rewarding in ways I hadn’t anticipated when I started.

So, despite the many good things blogging gave me in 2018 I did not set resolutions. Because I have stopped believing in them. Resolutions, I have realized are not for me, these, in fact, stress me out. Pull me down. Make me feel more bad, that I can’t keep up what I think.

But, but, doesn’t mean I am not heeding my blogging goals.

I have simply listed down the very main and vital things I want to do in respect to my blog.

  • Garner more visitors
  • Monetize my blog, eventually

That’s it! Just two things I’m gonna focus on this year.

And if God blesses me, I would be able to achieve if not both at least, the first part. Why I am doubtful about the Almighty’s blessings? Of course, what more can I expect after being a mom? Oh, of course, I love my children to the moon and back, every mom does. The elder one is just lovely with being independent already and the infant is so damn adorable, I can’t take my eyes off her. But, you can’t blame me if I say that every mom has that moment during the day when she just wants to run away. ‘

Hence, my primary reason why no resolutions, because I know I won’t be able to keep them, not even for two days. So, better set realistic goals. Better give myself a target I know I can achieve, rather than setting the unachievable and than blaming myself for not living up to it.

So, all fingers crossed on working towards the only two things I want for my blog this year. Although I have a confession to make…. I haven’t even started working on these… because I am still busy digging in kindergarten books, sharpening pencils, cleaning the poop, and ordering wet wipes and diapers.

    1. Thanks you guys, Vartika. Had it not been this amazing train, I won’t have made it in the end. Just two minutes remaining for the train to pull over and I finally linked the post. Phew. Thanks, once again. Didn’t know you’re a mommy to an infant too. I can do with some tips. 🙂

  1. I hear you Rashi. You are very honest and clear what can you do. I liked you very sweet and short list of resolution. Totally understand how it feels when we are not able to finish the tasks that we have planned. I am sure this blog train has contributed to your first resolution to some extent. What a fun last read of the blog train.

  2. Lovely post Rashi, and I hope you are enjoying being a second mommy phase. I know, its hard to make any promises for yourself when you had tons of responsibilities as a mom. wishing you all the best and hope you will get all the success and happiness in your life, in the upcoming year. #NYR2019

  3. Lovely writeup with good doses of humour
    The two goals are indeed great- sometime less can be more as is the case of just two goals by really rewarding
    Hope you acheive it despite all busyness:)

  4. You can get more visitors if your writing is meaningful, unique, and in one way or the other helpful to readers. Monetizing a blog leads to content that is hardly ever creative. Please think about these points.

  5. once you get there please do share your tricks of the trade, even i would want to have them both. and you would know my pain better we r in the same phase of life the elder one has to study and at the same tie the younger one wants to se chuchu TV 😉
    good luck!!

  6. I like this no-nonsense, ‘to-the-point’ approach to blogging goals. Just two clear-cut targets, both realistic and totally doable.

    Wishing you all the very best with these.

  7. Hey is it true that you’ve been blogging just for a year? Coz when I think of popular people in the blogoshpere, I always think about you too. But glad that you have decided to take a step ahead in your bloggin journey and monetise your blog. All the best to you for the same.

  8. So true!! Setting realistic goals is much more important than actual resolutions!! Hope you reach your blogging goals and achieve success!! Wish you all the best!! Great post!!

  9. I hear you Rashi. Knowing you from our earlier interactions, one thing I know about you is that you are a brave heart, very creative and one with lot of patience. I’m sure you will achieve both your targets this year, that u hv set for urself.

  10. Wohoo that’s a ambitious list for your blog future. All the best ❤️🙏. I know it’s a lot when one does blogging. Writing, working, doing errands, dealing with unwanted creative or writing blocks and many such things come hand in hand with blogging. P. S. Mommy world is all together different but interesting and handling kids with a blog, I feel like saluting those super ladies. I have these 2 things for my blog as well. I wish you to achieve it soon.
