Goodbye 2016 Hello 2017

So it seems to be a tradition that over the past two years I would upload a post on the 1st January titled Goodbye “the old year” Hello “the new year”. I don’t plan on stopping this as I have enjoyed putting this particular blog post together each year. 

Goodbye 2015 Hello 2016

Goodbye 2014 Hello 2015

I am currently sitting in bed with a big cup of tea, some Kettle chips and catching up on YouTube videos. On the 23rd December I had over 300 videos to catch up on now I only have 207 which isn’t bad. I only have a few more days off before I go back to work so I’m trying to watch as many as I can. Most of them are Vlogmas videos which is why I have so many to catch up on.

2016 has been a good year for me as 2015 was a really hard one. I have spent a lot of the year working on myself. Sometimes when you work on yourself you can benefit others even more. I have done so many amazing things this year. 

Just a few things from this year:

– I went to my first ever YouTube event which was in Manchester by myself 

– I started an apprenticeship in digital marketing

– I have worked hard on my anxiety 

– I turned twenty no more “teen” in my age

– I have learnt to budget more with money (I’m still working on that)

– I went glamping again

I’m going to be including my favourite blog post from the past year for each month so that you can go and have a look at them if you would like to. As well as this I will be including some goals that I would like to achieve in 2017.

2016 Goals Review:

– Have over 100,000 views on both my blog & channel (I’m 8,539 views away on my blog & 36,618 away on my channel)

– Reach 5k subscribers (I currently have 2,306 which is still amazing!)

– Remember to update my facebook page (This happens every so often haha)

– Meet up with more bloggers/youtubers (I’m still working on this but I have met a few more)

– Try and vlog once a week (This was a firm fail)

– Be more creative with my blog posts/videos (I’m working on this daily. I think I have improved since 2015)
