New Year!

Hello my lovelies,
Happy New Year. Yes, it is 2018. So a New Year can mean only one thing. Resolutions. Now, I always make them and with in a month or two they have been broken. Each year I say “I’m going to stick with them this year!” And I never do, now I may not be the only one who does this, but it is really hard - I find -to stick to them. Especially, if they are ones to do with cutting out food and what not. However, this year I will make new ones, and this year I will stick to them....(yeah right Rosie)! So without further ado here are my resolutions.
  Blog Where Rosie’s Vintage Chic is concerned I want to improve it massively. Up until a few months ago I fell into a bit of a stale patch with my blog. I didn’t know what to do with it. I wasn’t posting as much as I had hoped, so I got into the mindset of do I want to continue. This led to taking some timeout and I thought about what I wanted. As you can tell I decided to keep my little corner of the Blogosphere. After all, three years have been put into this baby, yes I know it hasn't been nonstop posting, but hey at least I do post. So this year with my ickle baby that is RVC, I actually plan to sit down and make a list of posts I want to do throughout the year. I will do a planned schedule list, I might even do a little series of linked posts on certain days. This year will be the year I actually start to take this hobby seriously, I have business cards for the blog so that’s one step.  I also plan to do vlogs, thats right I’m stepping into the realm that is Youtube. Now, when I started RVC I did do a Youtube channel, yet I didn’t use it. Well, actually I did, there is a video up that was posted two years ago. It was a video for my university project, so if you want to have a peak just head on over via the button on the righthand side panel.  
  Personal Right personal resolutions or goals as I prefer to call them. This year I actually plan on losing weight. Over the last year my weight has slowly started to creep up to a stage where I am no longer comfortable and its not really healthy for me. I have clothes in my wardrobe that don’t fit and I’m reluctant to go out and buy bigger sizes. So this year is my year to lose weight. I’ve set myself a target of losing 4stone by the end of the year. If I manage to lose more then fantastic, but four is my main goal. I want the old me back. The me that was bubbly and basically, not depressed. I also plan to travel more (somehow), even if it’s just places in the U.K. I’d love to go to London for a day or weekend and stroll round the museums and galleries. I really want to go to the Harry Potter exhibition at the British Library before it closes. So that maybe a February half term thing I do. For those that don’t know, I work in a school so can only do things during the school holidays. I do have a wanderlust list I’d love to tick off places from that. There are a number of geeky conventions I’d love to go to this year. One unfortunately, is in America so that will be a lot of money and to be honest I don’t know if it will be one I’m able to attend this year, I’ll keep you posted on that. One in particular I want to go to is about the tv show, The 100. If you haven’t seen it I highly suggest you do. My favourite character is going to be there and I’d love to meet him, but, anyway enough geeking out. I’m sure there are more goals I will probably think of once this is posted, so if I have to update it I will let you all know.  
Going off the subject of goals, I just wanted to say how amazed I am, at how much my audience has grown over the last few months. I’ve recently started joining blogging, instagram and other social media groups, on facebook and taking part in Twitter chats regularly. Doing these things and sharing my posts or even just links to my social media platforms has increased my following, not dramatically, I’m not in the thousands on any of them...yet. But, it is still nice to get notifications to say ‘you’ve got a new follower’ or ‘your tweet or post has been liked’. So, if you are someone who follows one of my social media groups then thank you. It really means a lot. When I first started RVC, I never once thought anyone would actually read what I post, so again thank you for reading my little rants and rambles.
Also want to say a huge thank you to Cherry Wallis, a lovely vlogger who I have subscribed to and follow on practically every platform she is on. Like me, she is a huge Harry Potter fan and we’ve spoken on Twitter and I even got a card from her at christmas and I sent her one as well. So, it is nice to be apart of that little community that goes beyond the universe that is the internet. As I type this I’ve just remembered another goal I want to achieve, and that is to go to more blog meet ups. I have seen so many nice photos and comments from the Milton Keynes Meet up that happened in December, and I was really bummed that I couldn’t go. I was also bummed that I couldn’t attend a fashion show, that I had won tickets to, due to being ill. But, this year is my year I can feel it.
