Well we are SOME how already in middle July. Where in the world did this year go? I'm just weeks away from my 29th birthday and I feel like I just celebrated 28. But I always feel like its important to check in on those little new years resolutions at this time. And I'm doing...ok. Check out my resolutions here.
There are two that I am definitely kicking butt on. First, travel to a new city. Check and check! My Italy trip took me to several new cities and it was incredible. From small towns to bigger ones, it was such an incredible adventure. I still want to hit up a couple of new spots here in the states. I just returned from Cape Cod for a wedding and its so beautiful up there. I really would love to make it out to California this year and visit a new part of wine country or go hiking. The camping trip on my resolutions still needs to happen...
The other resolution that is going strong is working on growing my Instagram following. I started the year with around 1500 and a couple weeks ago I went over 2000. Its not a massive growth but I know it's organic. The biggest thing I've done I think is incorporated more hashtags. I can 100 percent tell the difference when I use hashtags. Also I've done what I want others to do, and that's comment and follow other like minded Instagrammers. From fellow reporters to food bloggers to girls that have similar aesthetics, it really is all about building a community. And as someone who's made several real life friends through Instagram its such an incredible community.
The next resolution I am going to check off my life (for both this year and last...) is to FINALLY take that photography class. In fact I think I'm going to go sign up for one right this moment. There's no time like the present right? How are you doing on your resolutions? Have you gone back and checked in on them? And if you're struggling, well we're only half way through with the year, plenty of time!
