2016 Blogging Goals


Hi guys! I hope your New Year's celebrations were fun.
I just posted my New Years Resolutions, but today I thought I'd post my goals for CandyflossOverkill.
  1. Post more regularly: Lately I haven't blogged as much as I was during summer, and I miss it. I want to try and get back to daily posting if I can, although I don't want to force it. 
  2. Take ootd posts again: CandyflossOverkill was originally a fashion blog, after all. OOTD posts are some of my favourites to read, and I still love fashion, so I want to start documenting what I wear again. I would ideally like to try and go shoot them in locations, but it's winter and I'm a uni student, so for now my tripod and my room is what it's probably going to be. Also, my boyfriend (who is probably the only one I could guilt into taking outfit photos every day) lives 500km away in Tokyo. So yeah.
  3. Write more "lifestyle" posts: again, these are some of my favourites to read and they were fun to write. I don't want CandyflossOverkill to turn completely into a travel blog, because I'm not going to be here in Japan forever.
  4. Having said that, I do want to write some more Japan focused posts about life in Japan, and advice for exchange students and the like. I couldn't get enough of them before I moved here, and I'd love to be able to make some useful content.
  5. Get a good camera (yes, I just took the plunge and bought myself a DSLR for Christmas) and learn photography I guess I just need to practise, practise, practise.
  6. Use social media more: have a purge and unfollow all the things I liked in year 10. I also need to use social media for its actual purpose and get talking to more people.
  7. New layout I want something that is responsive and has a minimal, easily navigable design.
  8. Buy a domain 
  9. Make my travel posts more useful like I said before, I'd love to produce more useful posts. I want to include things like how to get to places, and maybe a little about history etc.
  10. Get Pinterest (?) It seems like another massive time sink (like how addicted I got to Tumblr back in the day) but also a place where you can get loads of inspiration.
So there you have it, my goals for CandyflossOverkill this year. I don't have any grandiose goals in terms of bloglovin followers or anything, I just want to produce better content and have fun making it. Wow, I'm cheesy.

Thanks for reading! What are your goals (blogging or otherwise) for 2016? 
-Amy xoxo
