Speaking Out - Pockets Of Inspiration

Believing In Your Ability to Succeed

succeed

This past week has been a massive week for me in many ways. First and foremost I made a brave decision to rebrand my blog from Days In Bed to The Inspiration Edit. It wasn’t an easy choice and you can read more about my decision and reasons for this change in my post, “Rebranding My Blog“.

Moving my blog and starting over in a sense is a scary thing to do. I’ve become a successful blogger and there are certain parts of the blog I will have to rebuild from my domain authority to page views and some followers. Hopefully many of my loyal followers from Days In Bed have come across and if you have, please do Subscribe over on the right.

Anyhow, there is a fear that changing blog could ruin my following, affect blogging opportunities and my ability to earn an income from my blog and that is all very true but in life you have to make brave moves and make sacrifices if there is something you want and I finally know what I want.

Will I succeed? Yes I believe I will because I’m a fighter and I wont give up. I will work for my goals and dreams and follow my heart.

I will Succeed

So with that said, I created a lovely quote for the week to remind me that I can do it! See I’m giving myself a pep talk and I know I can. I really can. I have the confidence to make this work and have set goals.

If at first you dont succeed try try again quote

My short term goal is to have the blog all organised by the end of October. I have a little more redirecting of content to do and some images to improve. I also have to finish my branding, name changes on social media and imagery. I’m planning to get a header created in the coming months and create a new signature.

I am working on my productivity and putting things in place to allow me to become a more productive and happy blogger.

I have recorded the final stats of my Days In Bed blog, as in my Domain Authority, Rankings on Tots and Hibs and the amount of income the blog is earning and my goal is to return to these levels by January 2017. I think this is achievable. I really do.

At first they will ask you why your doing it. later they will ask how you did it quote

I have set long term goals to achieve by 2018. I want to be getting 100,000 post views a month, be earning a full time income, working with brands I love and John and I have a goal to get a new and improved camera for his photography within a year.

Last but not least I want to be a happy blogger, someone who is more balanced, someone with a plan and goals, a reason and purpose. I want The Inspiration Edit to be a place where people come to be inspired be it reading my thoughts and quotes, fashion posts, family and kids posts or anything else I share here on the blog.

So with that said, WELCOME and please do stay for a while and take a peek at what I have to offer.

Why not take a glance at My Inspiration Edits or The Portrait Project, our Sylvias Style Posts or Life’s JourneyΒ Section.Β There’s plenty to browse through.

I hope you enjoy following this new chapter in my life.

  1. I’m totally loving the new blog name! My dad always used to say when I was little “If at first you don’t succeed try, try again said the spider” Good luck with your plans, I’m sure you will smash them.

  2. The new site looks brilliant and I wish you lots of luck with it and your goals for this month and the rest of the year πŸ˜ƒ

    1. Thanks Laura. I’m sure it will. I’ve lost a few opportunities but some Prs are happy to continue working together. I guess I know who value the blog and who are just in it for ranks/da. πŸ™‚

  3. Angela, I am so proud of you for taking this huge risk & making such a big change! I know you will achieve your goals & will inspire other bloggers to follow what they want from their blogs. The new space is gorgeous & so positive. I’m really honored you are joining in with #candidcuddles, it’s lovely to have you back!! x

  4. I’m in awe of anyone who has those page views and income as goals yet believes their life will be balanced and happy. You need to teach the rest of us! You must have a very strong character (which you’ve touched on). And you’re battling illness! Thanks for the quotes and for linking up to #candidcuddles in its first (rebranded) week.
