Welcome to the last blog post of Birthday Week! It's been such a fun week. In case you missed it, I announce a giveaway on Monday, celebrated Wild Mae's first birthday with a decadent coconut cake with TWO types of chocolate ganache on Tuesday, talked about the birthday gifts I got for Wild Mae on Wednesday, and toasted the end of an amazing first year with a punchy Costa Rican Sangria on Thursday.
Today I want to talk about my goals for the blog and Wild Mae this upcoming year. If my gifts to self were any indication, I'd like to improve my photography skills. I'd especially like to develop sort of a signature look. I'd also like to work on the blog design a little bit. I'd like to have a side bar and a little more visual stimulation. Not too much though...I do like the sleek, clean look of white and black. Another goal is to launch my online shop and figure out a way to have an eclectic and ever changing variety of products that is still cohesive and representative of the Wild Mae brand. Part of the reason for starting this blog and one of the most important things to me in starting this creative venture is to not pigeon hole myself. I'd also like to further develop my online voice. It's been hard to decide how much of this blog is personal and how much is "professional". I definitely want it to be me and I'm not perfect so I don't want to expect or force perfection in this space. My last goal is to create some fun features or series. I have some ideas that I can't wait to expand upon and hopefully share with you. I love the idea of sort of blog mini-series.
Well, that's it for now. Thank you thank you thank you for being a part of my journey thus far. It's been so amazing and I've learned so much. I can't wait to see what Year Two brings!
