What I'm Going to Do in 2016

As kind of a "part two" to one of my previous posts where I talked about what I did in 2015, I'm dedicating this post to things that I'm going to do in 2016. If I'm completely honest, I think that this might be my first year creating New Year's resolutions. I know, it's a little crazy, but I didn't really believe that the things I set as goals would actually happen. But now, I realize that I need to start seeing these goals as things that will happen, not things that I want to happen. This year I actually want to make a change and I want to do more. 


2016 Goals

Comment on at least two other blog posts every time that I work on my own blog.

There is really such a great feeling whenever I get a comment on my blog, because it means that someone enjoyed the post enough that they took the time to write out a message. Although leaving a comment takes less than a minute, most people don't take that minute to leave a nice message because they're moving on to other things. I want to spread the love and let other bloggers know that I appreciate what they have created.

Collaborate with at least two other bloggers.

I have actually never done a collaboration with other bloggers and I would like to try it out. Blog collaborations can be great for getting your blog out there, but I want to be able to strengthen my relationships within the blogging community as well through these collaborations. Let me know if you're interested in collaborating!


Be more creative with my content.

While sometimes it's difficult to come up with new content that hasn't been done before, I don't want to find myself caught up in doing the same thing that every other blogger is doing. Yes, some posts are popular for a reason, like New Year's Resolutions, except I want to try and throw in some creative content that is solely my own.


Stop caring what other people think.

While I mentioned this in my New School Year Resolutions post, I'm still working on being completely unapologetic about being me. I always worry about what other people think of me and I want to stop letting what I think they think influence my life. I want to be able to do the things that I want to do and not care what others think about it.

Although I have mapped out my resolutions, I have to make sure that these actually happen. But, no worries! I wrote a post on how to actually stick with your New Year's resolutions. I would also really love if you took a brief moment of your time to do a favor for me a fill out this survey so that I can make Sunny Rebecca even more enjoyable for 2016. Let's make 2016 great!

  3. I love your blog and it would honestly be such a joy to collaborate with you! (I do have to confess though, I've never collaborated with anyone since I just recently started blogging in October)

  4. Loved this post Rebecca - especially your last resolution. I feel the same way and definitely need to work on that, especially in relation to my blog - I'm always so nervous/self-conciousness when people hear about it, but it shouldn't be that way!
    Would love to collaborate as well if you'd be interested :)
    xoxo, Jamie

    1. Thanks, Jamie! I'm super self-conscious about my blog as well but I've recently been learning to be proud of it instead of hiding it. I would also love to collaborate!
