♡ Happy New Year! ♡
I hope everyone has had a really lovely start to 2019. I decided to take a little step back from blogging/Instagram for the first few days of the new year, however I am back to share my blogging plans and aspirations for 2019...and what better way to discuss plans than over a piece of cake.
Bakerdays very, very kindly sent me the most delicious letterbox cake personalised with my blog name and Mickey Mouse; the most appropriate design for this Disney loving blogger. What they perhaps didn’t know is that I have the biggest sweet tooth in the world, so they were sending their product to a TOUGH critic. However, being 100% honest, it tasted absolutely delicious.
Whilst “bakerdays” also offer small, medium and large cakes, I am most excited about their letterbox cakes which is what they sent to me. Despite being handled by postal services, the cake was perfectly fresh with absolutely no damage to the product. The cake was beautifully designed and arrived in a lovely tin that I will no doubt be re-using. There are endless design options on their website; and if there isn’t one that takes your fancy there is also the option to personalise your cake just the way you like it. I tried the traditional sponge cake however “bakerdays” also offer chocolate chip, lemon drizzle, fruit, gluten wheat free and dairy free options. The cake was light, very tasty and had exactly the right amount of icing. Speaking specifically about the letterbox size, I really think if you are wishing to celebrate somebody’s special day but maybe can’t be with them, sending a “bakerdays” cake would be the loveliest gift. You can get a photo cake at https://www.bakerdays.com/birthday-cakes/photo-cakes, or of course feel free to browse their website to see their complete range of fantastic cakes. And now, as I cut myself my second slice of the evening, I will take you through my blogging plans and aspirations for 2019...
♡ Increasing posts
In 2019 I am committing to posting more frequent blog posts. I aim to post an unsolved mystery fortnightly, with other posts in between cases. I would love to commit to a blogging schedule however due to the sheer amount of research behind my unsolved mystery posts I feel I need to trial this when I am back at university before making any promises..but it is certainly on my mind.
♡ Expanding content
I describe coc0chanelblogs as an “unsolved mysteries & lifestyle” blog and this will not be changing. However my favourite posts to write are unsolved mysteries as I have such a huge interest in them so I will be expanding my content to more of my biggest interests; including conspiracy theories, paranormal activity and general mysterious phenomena. For those who are not as interested in these areas I can assure you lifestyle and creativity will still be very much incorporated into my blog. I hope whoever visits my blog can leave feeling inspired by something in some way.
♡ Social media engagement
I started my blogging Instagram (@coc0chanelblogs) towards the end of 2018 and it was the best decision. I absolutely love connecting with other bloggers and feeling like a part of the blogging community, so in 2019 I am definitely going to be dedicating time to Instagram engagement. I will also dedicate my time to understanding the beauty of Pinterest - this is a very new platform to me so any tips would be really appreciated.
Ultimately, I adore new year and I cannot wait to see where coc0chanelblogs goes in 2019. I am living this year with a kind heart, a fierce mind and a brave spirit...and a tummy filled with cake.
Thank you so much for reading! I would love to hear about your aspirations for 2019 and any thoughts or feedback about the plans I have for my blog. I wish you all a very happy new year.
