Personal Goals for 2023

I can’t believe it’s 2023! For the first time since the start of 2020, it feels like life is finally back to normal. I’m eager to put down on paper (or, well, my blog) the goals that I have in mind for this year. I’ve always loved Habitually Chic’s “Write it Down… Make it Happen” posts (and I love that she’s also buying fewer and better this year!), and I was inspired to write my own. Here are my personal goals for 2023.

Get published in print

Okay, this is more of a long-shot, but I’d love for my writing to be published in print somewhere outside of our quarterly journal for work! I’ve had a photograph of mine published in a book before (in the illustrated edition of Bill Bryson’s At Home: A Short History of Private Life*), but never my writing. That’s a dream for this year!

Work with more brands

I have a small handful of brands that I absolutely love and I would love to work with them this year! I have felt so lucky to work with two favorites, Dempsey & Carroll and By Merryn. I’d love to expand the list a little!

Plan a special gathering

The pandemic put a hold on all social entertaining; now that we’re getting back into the swing of things, I’d love to host a little gathering!

Maintain a regular posting schedule

I love sharing my thoughts here–my goal is to continue a regular posting schedule of at least three times a week throughout the year!

Invest in a site redesign

While I like the layout of my site, my coding skills are fairly minimal, and I’d love to work with a website designer to help me with the coding and branding! Nothing fancy, but a little nicer than what I’ve managed to create on my own.

Write every day

I love to write–both this blog and fiction–and I want to carve out a little time every day to jot something down, even just a little.

Get organized!

I feel like I’ve done a great job organizing my wardrobe, but now I have everything else to take care of! From outdated paperwork to, well, just about everything but clothes, there’s a lot. I want to sort through things and get organized for the year.
