This year I resolve to be a better blogger

I never make New Year’s resolutions.  Why set yourself up for a fall?  I already do this every Monday morning when I wake up.  I vow to only eat healthy food, no chocolate or snacks between meals.  I plan to exercise every day – whatever the weather.  I tell myself I’ll catch up on writing, update the website, call friends I haven’t spoken to in a while.  I promise to do all the ironing and not leave that small pile of summer clothes abandoned.  And every single week I say to myself, ‘I am going to blog’.

All last year, every Monday morning it was the same.  I’m am going to blog.  I will share where I have been, what I’ve seen and done.  I will share, here, and not just on Instagram.  Come on, who doesn’t love seeing a photograph rather than just listen to me ramble on?  And did I blog?  No!

So, as well as reading more books, my resolve this year is to write more blogs, to give you an update on where I’ve been, products that have arrived for testing and generally be more sociable here, on my own patch, rather than just on Instagram.  Which by the way if you aren’t following me, head over there and look at the lovely photographs, it’s a lot of fun!
