Changes Starting August 2017

Changes starting Aug 2017

I have been lazy these days and not getting active online. It is not a good sign. I want to work hard again like I just start blogging. I wrote a plan and goals for myself to stay motivated and change my lifestyle. I will follow my plan this time, and you will be the one see me be a better person. It is the commitment I make. I will follow it, and no more procrastinating.  I will do it!

Videos and Pictures

I have been trying new things for pictures and video. Recently, I start using FireAlpaca, and it makes editing so interesting! Check it out if you like adding stickers to your pictures. It is like photoshop, but it is free! I never think editing can be fun and interesting. Now, I am closely getting pictures of what I want it to be. You will see my style more on my blog, and I hope you will like it.

Talking about videos, I was thinking I would feel embarrassed to see myself talking, but it is fun to watch and edit. I think the difficult part of making videos is to get comfortable in front of a camera. I wasn’t talking in my home language since I want to improve my English and wants to communicate with more people on the web just like my blog. It makes me harder to talk naturally in front of a camera, but I know I will get better over time. I just need to film more and talk more. I still have a lot to do, but it is fun to learn new things and improve. Anyway, I am going to open a YouTube channel and upload my first video this coming Friday. You will see my face soon. 😉

Blog Schedule

Here are few things I will do regularly starting August 1st, 2017. It just a heads up for you and reminder for myself. I will also change my blog menu a little bit to make it easier to find different posts.

Review blog post every Monday and Wednesday. I want my YouTube channel to be the place that I can post anything, and my blog has all my reviews and before-after posts. It is also because I want to write more reviews for some products to help people. No more laziness for me.

YouTube related post every Friday. As I said, I will start making videos and open a YouTube channel. I just think it would be nice to have a post too so if anyone doesn’t like watching videos or want to get more information, they can still read from my post.

Weekly fitness update post on Sunday. Yes. I didn’t give up on my fitness goal. My body doesn’t look different. I think it is because I didn’t exercise regularly. I want to write weekly journals about what I did for the week and how I feel about it. I think it can help me stick to my workout plan better.


I still struggle with posting pictures, pick a theme, and hashtags on Instagram. I set a goal for myself that I will post at least once a day. It can be poor pictures, but I need to post something for the day on Instagram. Of course, I will take better pictures and try to make a theme for my Instagram.

I struggle with handling too many social media too. Comparing to Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin, and others, I like my Instagram community better. I meet some beauty bloggers on Instagram and they are amazing. I get a lot of news and information from them. I just decide to focus on my WordPress, YouTube, and Instagram only from now on. Other social media will be used to promote my blog post only. Expect me to be more active on these three platforms.

These are few things I will do starting August 1st, 2017. They will be my challenge, and I am going to do it! This post is just my promise to you lovely that I will do all these and show you the better me!

  1. Great post Maggie 🙂 🙂 I really want to try that FireAlpaca software (my MacBook won’t let me install it though so I’ll have to try it on a PC), it looks really good and since I don’t have Photoshop yet it will be helpful, thank you for that.

    I think it is good that you will be making YouTube videos and still blogging. It gives people options with viewing content. I usually prefer reading posts but sometimes I go through stages where I rather watch video’s <3 <3

    Your blog schedule sounds really good. I'm so happy you are still doing fitness posts. I love your fitness posts, always inspiring. It's still Winter in Sydney and I have been a bit lazy with my fitness routine lol.

    Keep up the great work with your blog. I know that you will be a super successful blogger in the future and be a full-time blogger, hopefully sooner than you know it. You are amazing! I am proud of you being so consistent with your blog 😀 😀 x x

    1. Thank you so much!
      I think MacBook give more options on video and picture editing. I think Final Cut Pro is free for Mac user. I have PC so video editor is not at nice, but I think is enough for me now. By the way, check out
      I installed few fonts I really like from this website.
      I think you will like FireAlpaca since it will help you later if you are going to draw on a PC/Mac. I like using it to make stickers. XD
      I will try my best to stick to my schedule. XD Same for fitness goal. They are things that can’t see success in short amount of time. I believe we can do it all!

  2. Hey, I’m a girl (a little older than you- haha) but I do live in California. Whatever you like to accomplish, make sure you are passionate about it:) don’t do it because everyone else is doing it.
    Have become so hooked at blogging that I have Pinterest, Instagram, and FB, but it comes second place:) Thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. Thanks for reading too! Blogging is first thing I find in life that I would do without stopping. I may not focus on certain topics or have a clear idea that what it will take me to accomplish. I think I will find my way to shine. Thanks!

  3. Hi Maggie!
    I can totally relate. Summer time feels like the most challenging time of year to be active online because the weather is so nice and I always feel like being outside and doing fun summer things :).
    I cannot believe that tomorrow is already August! This year is flying by!!!
    These are some really great blogging goals that you have set for August! I successfully followed through with my commitment to blog everyday in the month of July. Some days were a breeze and other days I just barely remembered to blog before midnight so my posts varied in quality. It truly felt empowering to stick with it.
    I think it is awesome that you are starting a youtube channel!!!
    I hope you will have a wonderful August and keep up the fantastic blogging!!!

    1. Thank you so much Alana!
      It goes so fast this year. I don’t feel doing much but I definitely learn alot since I start blogging.
      I just feel guilty when I wasn’t active like before. I am scared if I procrastinate, I will not continue to blog so I decide to push myself.
      I am still getting use to Youtube. It make me feel the same when I post my first blog post.

  4. I’ve not heard of FireAlpaca – looks like a useful tool! Good luck with YT – I’m sure it will help you get more comfortable speaking and being in front of the camera. More practice will make it easier over time!
    Social media can be very time consuming. I really have to limit myself… I’m not a full time blogger / instagrammer and I can’t devote all my free time on there!

    1. Thank you <3
      FireAlpaca is more useful than I thought. It does almost everything photoshop can do.
      It is bad that I always forget what I want to say. I guess I need to write down some note and put it behind the camera. XD
      Same here. Having a full-time job and work on blog and social media is too busy. I am improving my time managment skill for sure. Now I have one more thing can write in resume. XD
