2018 Spirit To Keep + Goals

I’m pretty sure that a lot of bloggers will post their goals and I wanted to join, too. I love reading other people’s goals and see how they have achieved it or how they work hard to achieve it. It’s just amazing to see that someone is so persevere and consistent at reaching their goals because that’s one of my main problems, I’m not consistent. Haha. Seeing other bloggers makes me motivated to do so.

2018 Spirit To Keep

I don’t really know why I titled this like that, but I’m going to tackle about what attitude I want to pursue in facing problems and challenges.

Stay positive.

As always, I’d like to stay positive. Last year, I was all about spreading positivity but reflecting on my past experiences, I don’t think I was positive enough when facing challenges. I want to keep the spirit of positivity to make this year a better one.

Stay strong.

Just like what the priest had said in yesterday night’s mass, 2018 won’t be a smooth year. 2017 may have been bad and 2018 may be worse, but what matters is how we keep on going and how we stay strong when challenges come. The hard years makes us realise how much we need God, and we need to hold on to Him more than what we have ever did before.

Always be happy & contented.

This is the spirit that I want to keep. The spirit of happiness and being contented because– just because.

Hold unto Him.

I want to nurture my faith even more this 2018. Holding unto Him and being drowned by His deep love is something I’d like to achieve and experience.

Goals For This Blog

I appreciate everything that I have and have achieved in this blog for some time now but I want to step up my blog into a new level. Of course there’ll always be my random posts but I want to be more organised this year so here are my goals for this blog:

Have an organised schedule.

You guys know me! Haha! I post anytime especially when I have free time but I really want to work on a blogging schedule now. I have tried Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays but that didn’t work out. But I’ll try again because there’s nothing bad with trying again so… Wednesdays and Saturdays. I hope my blog schedule will work out. Haha.

Have a sign off logo + renew all my logo.

I have a sign off logo before but I think it’s too boring. I’ll try to make another one sometime this week, before my school starts again. I’ll update you with this one. I’ll also renew my icon here (I honestly don’t know where to edit that but I’ll find my way) haha.

Go self hosted before the year ends.

I want to. I badly want to! Who doesn’t want to go self hosted? I mean it’s amazing. Anyway I already have a theme to apply IF I go self hosted haha.

Reach 50k hits.

I am challenging myself. I HONESTLY don’t think I can achieve this because my average hits per year is 20,000– so if I have 22k hits now, I still need an extra 8k views to reach this. This is a pretty cool challenge so yeah, I hope I achieve this!


I now have 1k and it is honestly amazing. So my goal for this year is to reach 3k because there are some blogging groups I wanna join but can’t because of their follower limit. I mean is it necessary? (Silently goes for it anyway haha.)

Make better blog posts.

When I say this, I mean the grammar and everything. The punctuations, correct grammar, correct capitalizations, correct spellings and last, no typos!!

After Party Series

You guys might have forgotten this, but I haven’t. Haha. And since I’m not consistent in finishing series, here I go challenging myself again! I want to finish this because I still want to thank everyone who has attended my first ever blog party. πŸ™‚ I still don’t have a particular schedule for this but you’ll know it soon!

Have a Bible Verse at every end of my post.

My friend Hannah has been doing this lately and I was really inspired to do it as well. I have thought of this ever since I started watching Jess Conte’s videos so yeah I want to spread the Word as I blog. I will just open up a random page in the Bible and add up what verse I see at the end of my posts.

So this is it, guys! I loved doing this post because it makes me so motivated to do well this year.

What are your goals? I’d also love to know! Comment down a link if you’ve made a post like this already! I will see you next post which wil be on Wednesday! Hehe working off my sched.

β€œI will praise You, o Lord, with all my heart; I will tell all of Your wonders, I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.” – Psalms 9:1-2

  1. Go for it Jirah! May you meet and exceed your goals for 2018. 😊

    1. Thank you, Cherylene!! πŸ’–

      1. πŸ™‚

  2. Great.. I must appreciate your support since the beginning of my blog. Thanks dear.
    Yes , I am planning to a custom domain name and yes, web hosting.
    Looking forward for some suggestions as I am not a technical person and I have to search google a lot before taking any steps.

    1. You’re very much welcome! πŸ˜€ I don’t really understand how to go self hosted as well so I don’t think I can give any suggestions right now. I’m sorry! πŸ™

  3. This is a great idea, Jirah and i can’t wait. I liked when you said, “…what matters is how we keep on going and how we stay strong when challenges come.”

    Sometimes, life any knock us down but it’s how we get back up that matters how we grt back up. Also in your post, you said, “I want to nurture my faith even more this 2018. Holding unto Him and being drowned by His deep love is something I’d like to achieve and experience.” And I can agree.

    I think you will reach 50k hits by the end of the year and 3k followers. I think it’s a great idea about the Bible Verse at the end of the post.

    I also can’t wait to see your After Party series start up again.
