Call Me Amy in 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR (for tomorrow night...)


This is one of those posts that doesn't really qualify as a post because it's just me rambling about how much I love everyone who reads my blog etc etc. Seriously though, I do. I feel like I'm on the brink of exciting things with this blog and it could either go really well for me in 2017 or could just carry on the same. And I'm happy with either of those outcomes to be honest. 

I did a post similar to this at the beginning of 2016 where I said I was going to really try with my YouTube channel, which LOL, lasted about three weeks. So I think this year I'm not going to make any promises. I did actually consider cutting down on my blog content and posting twice a week instead of three, mainly because I want the content to be the best it can and I don't want to compromise on quality just because I've run out of time. I also have felt a bit like I'm putting too much pressure on myself and if I'm honest have felt a bit overwhelmed by life the past couple of months and felt like I'm never on top of things. 

To cut a long story short, I've decided to carry on posting three times a week and to see how it goes so we'll see. I had a grand idea that I'd post every Sunday on my YouTube channel, but sit down videos just aren't really me and I don't have an interesting enough life to sustain a vlogging channel. So I will be uploading on my YouTube channel, I just don't know what or how often (really selling it right?!). If you want to be a doll and subscribe you can do so here

Big love to everyone who reads my little blog, THANK YOU <3 I hope 2017 brings you all the happiness.

  1. I'm finally back, can't believe how many things I've missed during the last couple of weeks! These posts are one of my faves and I was super excited to read it :) When it comes to Youtube, I can completely relate because I really have tried to keep my channel alive but I've never had enough time for it and even though I would love to start filming those little videos again, I have no idea will I actually manage to do it. But I think that the most important thing is not to put too much pressure on ourselves (been there several times this year haha) because that kills all the fun and creativity, not to mention spontaneity, and what's blogging without those things? :)

    Happy 2017, dear Amy, wishing you all the best things in the world and I hope this year will be a magical one! Sending you lots of hugs and kisses from freezing cold Croatia! <3

  2. I think we all expect a lot from ourselves in the New Year, but content is definitely more important than how often you post. Especially with YouTube as it is so saturated right now. I think as long as you post videos you enjoy making you'll see growth anyway. I look forward to seeing more of you in the New Year Amy! Have a great one xxx

  5. I never knew you had a YouTube channel, otherwise I would have subscribed! I'm glad you had a good year, mine wasn't the best in terms of blogging although it started out well - I'll try to be more active next year. And uploading twice a week is still amazing, just do whatever makes you the happiest! xx

  9. I used to have a YouTube channel, but before all the fuss of being a vlogger - and when it started, I deleted all the 69 videos I had there :) BUt I think it's a nice idea to re-start your channel and in 2017 I will go from 2 posts a week to one - like you said, overwhelming and blogging tales so much time, I have many things to do and it sometimes prevent me from that. BUt nice is that we keep on blogging! I disagree, I am sure you have an interesting life! Your blog shows that! I hope you have a very happy 2017, glad that we got to "know" each other through our blogs!

  10. Don't feel pressured that you must post three times a week. If life gets in the way, life gets in the way! Posting because you love it is much more important that posting just for the sake of it!
