Well, hello, 2018. I’m so excited you’re finally here. Ok, finally maybe a little extreme but I love a fresh new year (especially when it lands on a Monday). So now it’s time to fill my brand new agenda with goals, dreams & deadlines. Over the last couple of days, I thought about what I wanted to share with you for the New Year. As I have big plans for 2018. And I came to the decision, to keep it personal and quite simple.
I want to share those posts throughout 2018, to keep track of my goals and what helped me to achieve them. I love looking back and see what I already achieved and what motivated and inspired me to do so.
What I want to achieve in 2018
I spend the last day of 2017 getting ready for the new year. I tidied my desk, prepared a to-do list for January and did a facial (let’s be honest, what is a better way to start a new year than with a fresh face and desk setting?). And however, you spend your last day of 2017 I hope it was a good one and that you’re now ready for a new chapter.
In 2018 I want to make IEB a priority
I’m now blogging for a little over 1,5 years and it has been an amazing journey so far. I love creating content and connecting with like-minded people. I already got the chance to work with some amazing brands, such as Les Sublimes, Nunuco Design Company, and Yogi Tea. And I even got invited to my first ever blogger event with Blume2000.de. I must admit 2017 was a great year for IlkaEliseB. That’s why I want to make it more of a priority in my 2018 day-to-day life. Because I know I can achieve even more and do even better. I want to:
- Take my Instagram serious.
- Connect with more people who think like I do.
- Take better photos and improve my editing skills.
- Get Pinterest to work for me.
- And I want to work more with brands I admire.
I want to cancel out time on my calendar every single day and dedicate it towards my blog. That probably is something many bloggers plan to do, but I saw an amazing growth on my blog over the last couple of months and I’m curious to see what I can achieve in 2018 (blogging wise).
Other things I want to accomplish
Besides blogging and growing IEB I have some slightly smaller goals for 2018 which all lead towards the main goal – making my blog a priority. Those core goals help me to make 2018 a great and successful year. My core goals are:
– Be more adventurous/travel
– Invest in beautiful things
– Love (myself & others)
– Spend more time enjoying the small things
It’s all about the daily things you do and how they affect your vibe. I want to enjoy 2018 and make the most out of every day. That’s why I don’t set goals such as buy a fancy handbag, travel to Spain or lose 5 kilos.
And I can’t achieve my main goal, making my blog better, when I don’t focus on the overall picture. When you take a closer look, all my goals go hand in hand.
Take better photos – be adventurous, maybe invest in a new lens. Connect with others – Love, be adventurous, enjoy the little things. And so on.
So for 2018, I wish you and me that we can accomplish everything we visualize and that it’s going to be a fantastic year. Much love, Ilka x
A special Thank You to my dear blogger friend Victoria from Apartment Number 4. I had today’s post already written but no idea how to call the core goals. Luckily her Goals post for 2018 had the word core goal in it, which described perfectly what I meant. So Thank you V and I hope all you can achieve all your goals and that you have a lovely 2018! xx
