WISHES | Things I want to do/ accomplish next year

For many people, a new year means a fresh start. I agree with that, but at the same time I think that a new year isn't something that special. I mean, what's the difference between the first of January 2017 and December 30, 2016? Exactly, it's just another day of our lives. However, the thought and fact that 2016 is slowly coming to an end, gives us the feeling that we need to change. It's like going to another school or switch to a new job, right? I am that kind of person who has (a lot of) resolutions for the new year. Personally, I think 2017 will be one of the most important years of my life.

First of all, I really want my blog to grow a little bit more. I absolutely love everything about blogging and I haven't thought about quitting once. I've been blogging for five and a half years (crazy, right?) and I can't wait to celebrate more years. However, I notice that there a lot of people nowadays who are calling themselves 'online influencer', 'blogger', etcetera. When I started blogging (2011), I had to explain to people what it was. 'You have your own blog? I don't get it, can you tell me more about it?' Now people are like 'oh, you're just another blogger' But one thing they don't know is that I have been doing this since such a long time. People can't just simply distinguish new and 'old' bloggers, unfortunately it doesn't work like that.
Anyway, back to the point. Something I really want to accomplish is a growing blog. This also means that I have to come up with new ideas and be more original. Hopefully I'll be having plenty of time from May on. I am already excited and looking forward to everything.

The second thing I want to do is travel more. I really want to go to Dubai again and visit Paris at least once. USA are on top of my list, but the problem is: NY or LA? Or maybe Las Vegas? There are so many other beautiful places I want to visit, I don't even know where to travel to first. Marrakech, Australia, Hawaii, Thailand... Oh well, we'll see.

Blogging has a lot of advantages, for example going to (press) events and meet other bloggers. Not everyone knows who I am/ recognises me, I really hope this is going to change next year. There are so many sweet girls I want to talk to in real life. Let's hope this will happen in 2017.

These are just three resolutions for the upcoming year. Of course I have many more, but writing a blog post about ALL of them will be way too much.
What are your intentions?
