Family travel

My blogging new years resolutions

I don’t often make new years resolutions – I know giving up chocolate is a non-starter! But when it comes to blogging I’m happy to make an exception.

I’ve learnt so much in the past two years and have already made a lot of changes in 2014 – updating Tin Box Traveller’s layout, posting more often, and getting involved in the blogging community.

But there’s always more that I want to do.

Here are my resolutions for 2015:

Use my DSLR camera more

It’s so easy to grab my iPhone and snap away but it caught me out over the summer when its memory was rammed and the quality of my shots went down considerably. We have an SLR – it just need to get into the habit of having it close by.

Take more family pictures

This obviously isn’t just a blogging thing. I was asked for a family photo to go with a guest post on someone else’s blog recently and really struggled to find something from the past year. 

Get a personalised blog theme

When I visit other blogs I often get a touch of design envy. I know that the quality of writing remains the most important element but it doesn’t do any harm when a blog is also easy on the eye. I’ve heard Etsy is a great place to pick up great designs.

Be more social on Twitter

I’m always on social media for work but some days I totally forget to tweet or check out what other people are up to in my personal life and blog.

Start a regular themed post

I want to look back at favourite travel memories in a regular post. I’m still working on the name but hope to start this on Thursday 1 January.

Post more for Children are Welcome

I’m a guest blogger for CAW but haven’t been posting regularly about the child-friendly businesses in my area. Part of the problem is finding the time to get out of my usual routine and visit new places. Hopefully I’ll get more opportunity to do this while I’m on maternity leave.
