Welcome to Voluptuous Chatterbox - Goals & Plans for the Year Ahead



Welcome to Voluptuous Chatterbox, I thought I'd write a little intro for 2021 with what to expect on the blog this year, my goals, and what I learned last year. 

First things first, what did I learn last year? 

Blogging: 

That DA scores apparently mean alot to some brands and not that much to others. It just all depends on the brand itself, my DA score fluctuated so much last year that I became slightly obsessed with monitoring it until I told myself to let it go and continue blogging. 

I make that sound alot easier than it was, it seemed almost every place I looked though people were always posting about it and I even saw one comment that basically said if you didn't have a certain figure then just stop. It felt so disheartening but in all my years of blogging that's never been something I've been interested in nor do I understand most of it, my little space has always been a place for me to share my thoughts, feelings, and daily goings-on. I do want to look into what it all means and try to understand it abit better though. 

What to expect this month:

I've made a start to 2021 by organising my posts and ideas for the month ahead and so far I'm more prepared than I've ever been, which I hope will continue. I'm focusing on week to week instead of month to month, something which Katie from Life with KTKinnes recommended back in December to do. It's less stressful and allows time not to feel overwhelmed or stressed. I've always been someone that tried to plan so far in the future that I hardly got any writing done as I was so busy writing lists and ideas before realising the month was nearly over.

This month includes tips for when you're meeting the parents, a couple little early (and easy) Valentine's Day baking treats as well as the ultimate Veggie Friendly Hot chocolate at home! 

What to expect this year? 

Continuing on from what I mentioned above, I'm not going to try and plan out what to expect this year apart from more dating and relationship related content, more beauty and fashion and hopefully days out in the summer! I would love to go on some summery dates and trips away with Lee to enjoy the sunshine! 

My goals include 

- posting regularly on social media
- taking time out to read blogs 
- to focus on writing things that I want without worrying about others opinions 

Personal: 

What I learnt last year? 

I learnt alot about myself and the people around me, I'm stronger than I've ever been and I will no longer tolerate those that don't have my best interests at heart or are happy for my accomplishments, no matter how much it hurts to say goodbye to them, I know sometimes it's for the best. I want to surround myself with positive and like-minded people who can be happy for each other and cheer each other on when we need it most. 

What to expect this month? 

I'm trying to organise my time more beneficially and not take on too many things that I so often do because I don't like saying no to someone, so this month I'm going to start saying no to things I don't want to do or that I know I don't have time for. 

There are so many books I have that I've not read so I'm planning on having my yearly book clearout and sort through all the books I want to read next on my TBR and then make sure I take time to read them! 

What to expect this year..

Last year I focused so much on my mental health and finances that I want to continue practising self-care and looking after myself both physically and mentally. This year I want to focus on the career aspect of things and fight through my anxiety including my blogging and strengthening the relationships I have in my life. 

My goals include: 

- pay off a debt
- be more physically active 
- try different foods
- wear more of what I want to wear

There are a few more goals I could write but they are what I'm focusing on and I don't want to write so many that I don't accomplish none. 

Do you have any goals? What did you learn or take away from 2020? Let me know below.
