How Many Of My Resolutions Did I Keep

So before this year started I posted a bunch of resolutions that I wanted to achieve this year which is not something I usually do because I’m not a big fan of the whole making resolutions thing but a bunch of other bloggers were doing it and it seemed fun so I thought I would give it a try. So I thought since the year is almost over which resolutions I kept and which ones didn’t work out as planned! To check out the resolutions post click here. 

Make more time for blogging 

This was the first resolution I had on the list and thankfully I have kept it… for the most part. I mean sure sometimes I get lazy or really busy and can’t post regularly but especially recently I feel as though my excitement and inspiration for blogging has really come back and I have been trying to blog at least 5 times a week which has been amazing! It has really helped increase traffic and followers and most importantly it has given me more enthusiasm to write more!

Eat healthier

I started eating a plant-based and much healthier diet. I mean I’m not going to act like I did not eat any junk food because you know I did but I ate healthier junk food and a much healthier diet in general which is what I think counts! I love this resolution because it really made the biggest impact in my life and I genuinely feel better then ever thanks to the changes in my diet!

Write at least one page a day

I tried you guys. I really did. But I’ve been super busy and I just have not had the time or energy to keep up with this one. But maybe next year!

Read more

I’m a history major so a large part of my studies is just reading so I didn’t have a lot of time to read other stuff but I did read a couple of books that I wanted to review which was so fun. Plus, I think it counts as reading even if it’s historical sources and stuff!

New Years Resolutions?

So I usually don’t like to make New Years resolutions because if I want to change something about my life I think I should do it whenever not at a specific time but I understand how a new year can serve as motivation for change for a lot of people and thought I would try it out myself!

I decided to make some goals for the coming year and share them with you guys so we can take the journey together and see if I can stick to them or lose interest in a few weeks…

So…

I’ve been thinking about starting another blog and maybe a YouTube channel about cooking and with recipes. I don’t know if I actually will but I’m toying with the idea right now.

 

How Having A YouTube Channel Can Increase Confidence (Guest Post)

A lack of confidence is something we all struggle with, especially having confidence when public speaking. Somehow talking in front of fellow humans is terrifying for us. I struggled with this problem, I still do, but it has gotten better over the past year, mainly because I started my own YouTube Channel.

If you start a YouTube channel it will help your confidence for sure. You’ll get nervous and awkward in front of the camera at first but it will begin to feel natural. You will get comfortable talking to an imaginary audience and the camera will stop intimidating you.

I think this is an awesome way of boosting confidence. You learn to public speak and there is something about standing in front of a camera and talking to it. It’s scary and makes you nervous but if you do it enough, it will stop freaking you out and so will talking to other humans.

Plus you will not be afraid of being filmed. A lot of my friends are terrified of cameras and they get stressed out when filmed but honestly, it barely bothers me anymore. I’ve made a fool of myself on YouTube, nothing fazes me anymore.

Another thing is; it helped me overcome my shyness. I am still a pretty reserved person with strangers but I used to be a literal clamshell, an awkward turtle. I’m still an awkward turtle but a friendlier one.

If it stresses you out that other people are watching your videos, you can start by making them Private and as you improve be brave and click that button to make them Public!

Don’t even think about telling me that you don’t have a good camera. I use my mother’s and it isn’t the best either and I still make videos. You can even film yourself with your phone. As long as you have some editing software (you can find tons of cheap editing software, like Wondershare Filmora) you can make a decent video.

Now I know a YouTube channel is not for everyone, and I know that not everybody has time but if you struggle with confidence and have some free time I encourage you try this method out. It may take a couple months but having a YouTube Channel really helped me increase my confidence.
