2019 New Years Resolutions

It’s 2019! I already posted about my bookish resolutions, which is linked if you’re interested, but I thought I’d also post about my general new years resolutions. These mainly relate to photography, but I still think posting them here is a good way to share & compare, but also to help me remember them. I have 3 resolutions total, but 2 of them are photography related so I’ll get into those first.

My first resolution is to get more involved with craft fairs. Craft fairs (or at least something similar) are every month where I live, so I thought it would be good to get involved in a few. They’re a good way to share my photography and even make a bit of money from it, which is something I really want to be able to do. A long-term goal of mine is to make photography my way of making money, I’d love to be a self-employed photographer one day! The mention of money though leads nicely on to my second resolution, which is to expand my shop! I have a photography shop, but currently it is fulfilled by another company. I upload my photos and they’re printed on demand on different items and shipped without me having to do anything and I collect my profits by having it sent to me via PayPal. What I want to do is have a few items that I have made and ship out myself. I probably wouldn’t want to sell too much just for space reasons, but it would be interesting to do. My plans would be to sell pocket mirrors, badges, keyrings, phone cases & fridge magnets. We shall see how that goes!

My final resolution is just to keep track of things more. This includes books read, money (mainly with photography), social media, health and other bits and pieces. I have a Filofax-type planner that I bought last year but didn’t use much, so for this year, it’ll be used way more! I can make a planner set-up post if I manage to do this in an organised way, but that would only be if there is interest.

Anyway those are my resolutions! If you’ve made any, I’d love to know what they are! 🙂
