Happy New Year! I hope your 2018 is off to a good start wherever you are in the world. I’ve been looking forward to fresh beginnings, and I want to share some New Year’s inspiration with you today.
New Year’s Resolutions
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not great at New Year’s resolutions, so this year I’ve picked a couple of words to focus on instead.
For work, my mantra is “balance”. Full-time blogging tends to take over my life, and I need to make sure I balance it with non-blogging activities so I don’t burn out. For my personal life, it’s “acceptance”. I’m not very good at accepting things as they are, but I’m working on letting go of resistance. Are you making any resolutions or setting goals?
New Year’s Inspiration
If you’re in need of some inspiration yourself, I have exciting events coming up in London and around the world in 2018. If you’re a blogger (or an aspiring one), a marketer, or a PR, head over to my Events calendar to take a look.
My Blogging Basics and Advanced Blogging eBooks will also be useful if your New Year’s resolution is to start a blog, give yours a boost, or take your blog to a professional level.
Travel in the New Year
Where are you traveling this year? I’m flying to Japan tomorrow and have trips to Central America and Rotterdam coming up in the next six months. If you have travel tips for me, I would love to hear them.
I’m also planning to travel to Naples for a weekend and the Scottish Hebrides for another sailing expedition in June. If you have recommendations for either, please share your tips. If you’re planning a trip to anywhere I’ve written about on the blog, I hope my tips can help you, too.
Happy New Year
Above all, I wish you a healthy, happy 2018 and I look forward to the adventures we’ll have!
