My new year’s resolutions:

Building up my DA score!

If you don’t know what a DA score is, it stands for Domain Authority! This means that it is a number which is allocated to your website, predicting how your website is likely to rank. I would really like to increase this to get a higher spot when searched!

My New year's resolutions- build my DA

Battle through my mental health!

Throughout the whole of 2020, I really struggled with my mental health and suffered through lots of tough times! Therefore I would really like to take the opportunity to have a fresh start and have a more positive mindset.

Attempt my GCSE’s!

This year is my final in secondary school and I will be taking my GCSE’s! Unfortunately, due to my mental health, I have had a lot of time off of school. This has resulted in me falling behind massively. Therefore, I put to attempt my GCSE’s as one of my new year’s resolutions because I am going to try and do the best that I can, despite missing out on a lot!

Start a small business!

As 2020 was a very tough year for me, and I struggled a lot with my mental health, I came up with a great plan to help others as I know how hard it is! My small business is going to be me creating boxes for people who suffer from mental health. It will contain sensory toys, self-care products, lots of useful info/services and more!

Other people will be welcome to purchase a package, however, if they do not suffer from mental health, I will just make them a self-care package. I would ask my customers questions to help me base the box around them!

I have stocked up on lots of products and will start in 2021! Also, I have received lots of donations and enquiries, which I am so grateful for! If you would like to donate, CLICK HERE!

Grow my self-esteem and confidence!

Being in lockdown has made me put on a lot of weight and also made my mental health a lot worse! Therefore, this has affected my confidence ad self-esteem massively. In 2021, I would like that to change and get my confidence back up again and start to love myself more!

Post a singing video on Instagram!

Following the goal above about self-esteem, I really want to post a singing video on Instagram! However, like I said my confidence is rather low. Therefore in the new year, I am going to try really hard to push my self to post a singing video on my Instagram. So keep an eye out!

Get some paid opportunities!

Now I have been blogging for a little while now, this year I would really like to be able to get some paid opportunities! I have many affiliates which I can get a small commission for, however I would really like more! If you could recommend any, please let me know!

  8. Happy New Year! I’m so with you on DA authority. I want to build mine up too. Good luck with your resolutions this year ✨

  9. I am not really a new year resolution person lol.. I prefer setting goals for the new year and I have a lot of goals for this year. We have similar goals lol.. Just like you, this year I want to battle through my mental health. 2020 had a really negative effect on my mental health and I want to put my pieces back together. Also, I want to grow my self esteem and confidence. 2020 had me falling back in self esteem and confidence. Before 2020, I used to be really confident and I used to hold myself in high esteem but 2020 ruined things and I hope to get my self esteem and confidence back in this new year. I have been blogging for a little over 1 month and I want to get my first paycheck this year too. About the affiliate thing.. Have you considered joining the amazon affiliates program and the share a sale affiliate program? If you haven’t joined the aforementioned affiliate programs, make sure to join. This is a great post Demi. I want you to know that every one has issues. Mental issues are a part of life and everyone has bad times. I know you are strong enough to overcome your mental issues Demi! Stay strong x!

    1. Thank you so much Zoe! Really means a lot x

  15. These are great goals! I’m still trying to understand SEOs and DAs though with the very basic WordPress, I’m not sure it comes with many plugins. I hope to raise my views too! Good luck on your GCSEs!!

    1. Thank you! Hope it all goes well for you!

  17. These sound like really good and all round New Years resolutions. Also it’s amazing that you’re already setting goals like this at such a young age! When I was your age I remember being totally focused around GCSEs and A-levels to get to uni, but I don’t remember having set such focused goals in other areas of my life which are equally as important. Good luck! X

    1. Thank you x
