No-Photography-Required Blog Post Ideas

Being a blogger in the winter can be a rough old job. The late sunrises and early sunsets make photography a nightmare. With so many of us leaving the house when it's dark and coming home in the dark, those light and airy images of spring and summer feel like a distant memory. But fear not! Today I have compiled a list of blog post ideas which require no photography whatsoever, so you don't have to neglect your blog when the light conditions just aren't going your way.

12 Health Goals For The 12 Months Of 2016

As I mentioned in my 2016 new years resolution post, one of my aims for this year is to look after myself more. I received some difficult heath news towards the end of last year (which I will be talking about in a guest post soon) and so I really want to do all I can to make positive changes for my body. Instead of loading it on myself all at once, I've set out 12 goals for me to work through in the 12 months of 2016. As we all know, as humans it takes us time to form a habit, so I'm hoping that introducing these things gradually throughout the course of 2016 will make me more likely to achieve them and maybe even sustain them for longer.

How To Survive Blue Monday

So tomorrow is 'Blue Monday', supposedly the most miserable day of the entire year. How uplifting! With the holidays out of the way and the consequent lack of cash, short daylight hours, cold weather and failed resolutions, it's not hard to see why the third Monday in January has built itself such a bad reputation. Here are a few ways to make the whole ordeal a bit more bearable...

My 2016 Blogging Goals

2015 was my first full year of blogging, and I feel like this space has come such a long way from what it was just twelve months ago. Aside from making me cringe a little, looking back on my old posts makes me proud when I see how much my content has improved. I'm feeling optimistic about 2016 too, and so I've set myself some blogging goals to help me push it even further...

My 2016 Resolutions

Happy New Year lovely people! I found myself in two minds about whether to write this post or not. Maybe it's because every man and their dog blog writes a resolution post, or maybe it's because there's so much cynicism surrounding the whole idea of new years resolutions. However, when I thought back to my 2015 resolutions post, I realised that the very act of publishing my intentions for the year ahead for all to see was the thing that motivated me the most to complete them. In committing my goals to (virtual) paper, I managed to successfully achieve 5 of the 6 goals I set myself last January (sorry art skills - drawing more fell by the wayside a bit!).  So with that in mind, I've decided to go ahead and set myself some new goals for 2016, these will be my personal resolutions and blogging based ones will come in the next post...
