I've been blogging for about a year now , but I haven't been consistent at all. I started getting consistent around August and even then I am still slacking. I haven't done as much as I have planned to. I've been facing challenges left, right and center.

Today I'm going to share some of my challenges and how I plan to beat them into submission.

The first challenge has to be the lack of a laptop. Have you ever seen a blogger without a laptop? Well , you're reading a post from such a blogger. It is extremely inconvenient and sometimes limiting to have no laptop to go about your blogging duties. I still manage to do things from my phone and from the help of a Godsent friend's laptop but having a laptop of my own will be extremely helpful in crossing some of my difficult tasks. 

The second challenge has to be my lack of organizational skills. I make notes in my head of posts I want to upload but then one thing turns into another and I may not end up doing it the day I planned to. One really annoying character flaw I have is that once I procrastinate on doing something, I'll keep procrastinating. So once I don't upload the post the day it's supposed to go up, it may never go up. However, I have come up with a plan. I plan to upload on Wednesdays and Saturdays , on Mondays I would take pictures then on Tuesdays I would draft up the post and Wednesday I'll check to make sure everything is in order then hit publish , same goes for the Saturday post, pictures on Thursday, draft Friday and hit publish on Saturday. God willing I will stick to this. Side note: I think I need a blog planner for 2018. 

The next challenge is my mindset. I used to get really discouraged when I saw or heard bloggers talking about their collaborations with brands, their overall success. I would always wonder why I wasn't succeeding with my own blog but now I have realized that the successful bloggers work hard and truthfully I haven't been working that hard. Now I know that if I want to be successful and get to and even surpass the level of some of the bloggers that I admire have reached , I have to put in extra effort and treat my blog like a baby that needs its mothers care and attention to grow into an adult. I definitely know that sometimes those doubts and thoughts will creep in but I now have a spray to kill the bugs. 

So with all these in mind , I also have a bucket list for my blog. I'm big on bucketlists , you can check out my 21 things to do before turning 21 post here  I was tagged to this by Gift of giftcollins.com along with other bloggers. For the upcoming year (which I'm super excited for ) , I want to achieve these things ;

• Work with brands that I love eg Zaron, kayge cosmetics Aramiessentials ,etc. I'm being prophetic by speaking their names. Right now it sounds unbelievable to me but you just may never know. 

• Have 2000 followers on my blog. This number may be little to some people but it'll be an accomplishment to me. 

• Start making money from this baby of mine. Your passion can also pay bills. 

• Gain recognition from fellow bloggers and people in the beauty industry. 

I have been really transparent and honest today with you all because you're all with me on this journey , so why not let you know what I'm working towards. Anyways I hope you learnt something or have been challenged to do better with whatever it is you have planned to do. Anything worth doing is worth doing well always remember that. 

What challenges are you facing in your chosen career ? What are your goals for 2018? I would love to know. Please leave your answers in the comment section. Have a blessed day ahead. 

Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.”
