New Year, New Goals

two people sat watching a big firework display

I cannot believe we are about to be in a brand new year, 2020! I love the feeling of a brand new year, the fresh start feeling where anything is possible.

I like setting goals for the year ahead, I prefer to set goals than resolutions. Throughout the year, there will of course be new goals I will want to achieve. I have set out overall goals that I would want to work towards. I think setting goals are important as for me it gives me focus.

I decided to divide my goals into personal and blogging categories this year:

Personal Goals

  • To begin my clean eating and exercise routine again

  • To continue to challenge any anxieties and not let them distract me from life

  • To continue with my ISA saving for my mortgage

  • To travel to more places

Blogging Goals

  • To approach more brands this year than last year

  • To upgrade to the premium plan on WordPress

  • To have a blog re-design with colours etc.


I am really excited for this year, I want to make huge steps in my life and make this year the year of growth. I already have some great content planned with some great brands/experiences, which I am looking forward to sharing with you.

I hope 2020 is a great year for you! What are some of your goals for 2020? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  1. These are some great goals to have, Lauren. I love setting goals for the new year (I shared mine on the blog a week or so ago) and I’m so excited to get started on them. Here’s to a fantastic 2020!

  2. Awesome goals for 2020! Mine are exercising more (always every year!) and just be happy&grateful everyday.

  3. Hi Lauren,
    I sorta stopped making resolutions, but I do have goals. Mostly, I keep them private though. Not sure what that says about me. Maybe I have accountability issues! I like how you separated yours into those two categories. I could easily do the same. So thanks for that suggestion. May 2020 be kind to you. May it be kind to us all.

  4. All blogging goals are good for growth, and putting yourself out there with new brands is great way to find new opportunities. There is never any harm in approaching people!
    Personal goals are what make the blogging goals possible! Good luck with everything and happy New Year!

  5. Lovely goals! Yes girl! You get that money and you buy yourself a house. I love seeing people achieving their dreams. I can’t wait for the day you tweet at us telling us that you’ve just been approved for a mortgage!

  6. Good luck with all of your goals for 2020! It is great that you have some blogging goals to up your game! Keep it up with saving up for a mortgage. Hope 2020 will be an exciting year for you :)!

  7. It’s so important to set both personal goals and blogging goals, as you have… I must get round to it! If you ever need some travel inspo, feel free to check my new site anytime 😊

    Happy New Year

  8. Best of luck with your 2020 goals!! I have similar ones in that I want to restart my exercise routine and I’d like to start reaching out to brands as well. Fingers crossed! X

  9. Great post- so good to have goals for the year and you have chosen some great goals! Where abouts do you plan on travelling to? I really want to go to Prague at some point in 2020. Emma x

  10. Love your blog goals – I am confident they will prove fruitful for you!! Best of everything in the new year to you!

  11. Happy New Year, and good luck with all your goals! I have also set goals rather than resolutions this year. My main goal is to be more social, and I’ve set myself the challenge to have at least 52 social meetups this year (1 a week on average) – I’m doing well so far as I’ve already had 2 social events since January started!
