Media kits. They’re something that I kept reading about on Twitter when I first started up this blog but I had no clue what they were. The more I saw about them, the more I started to look into it. After reading a few blog posts on them, I realised that it was something that I wanted to create for my blog.

As some of you may or may not know, before I had this wonderful blog, I was running a different one. I started it when I was 14, just I was about to start my GCSE’s and it was a book blog with the odd lifestyle post thrown in but book reviews were primarily what I had posted. I’d fallen in love with blogging at that point. I loved getting to know people in the community and being able to share my thoughts with people who had read the same things as me.

However, as I started to grow up a little bit more, my interests had started to expand outside of books and whilst I still loved reading it wasn’t the only thing that I was doing. There was so much more that I wanted to write about and share with people. Suddenly, books weren’t my main focus any more. I wanted my blog to be something that grew with me instead of being at this standstill place.
Unintentionally, I did take a year out of blogging when I started my A Levels. I had joined a new sixth form and the work load was a little crazy so I wanted to spend the year being able to adjust what was going on in school and I settled into a new place. After getting my results in August though, I wanted to go back to doing something that I absolutely loved. So, I had a massive re-brand, bought a new blog design and bought my domain and now here I am. With a blog that I feel now reflects who I am as a person and is growing with me with every post.

With the 2017 under way, I haven’t made any resolutions for this year. What I have told myself though is that I want to keep my blog a lot more organised. Having opened this blog late last year, I haven’t posted half as much as I have wanted to. School just keeps getting busier and I was struggling to find the time to blog. But if I don’t make time for blogging then I’ll never post.Over Christmas, my parents got me the “Ultimate Blog Planner” which has already been such a massive help to me. It’s been a great way for me to be able to jot my ideas, say when I want it to be posted and it’s made it so much easier for me to be able to plan out blog posts when I’m not at home and at my laptop.

The planner gives you the chance to write down the date you’re planning the post, when you want to publish it, post title, your ideas and then check boxes for your words, links, photos and when it’s been published.

I’m really hoping that it’s going to help me to post more frequently and keep more on top of what’s going on my blog.
