GTKY with Belle Brita January

Getting to Know You is a monthly interview series that Brita created after the dissolution of Guys Behind the Blog. While Brita and her husband both answer the questions each month, feel free to use these questions to interview anyone in your life! Or just share your own responses. Link-up goes live on the last Tuesday of each month (or any day you choose to link up*). 

Optional Rules:

  • Follow me, Brita! Twitter – Pinterest – Instagram – Bloglovin
  • In your linked-up post, link back to this page, please!
  • Make sure you link the relevant post, not your whole blog page.
  • Check out a few blogs while you’re here, and leave at least one comment.
Here’s the questions she provided for this month.I’ll be writing as much as I can in great detail for myself and to be clear in explaining to you what I did or did not do and everything I’m hoping to accomplish in the future. 


  • What goals did you accomplish in 2016?
I was decently consistent and if anything I realized how important that is for a blogger. After checking my numbers off and on, you can clearly see and notice follows and engagement alone based on consistency of posts. People get bored and confused waiting and checking to see if you have a post out or not. If you aren’t on a schedule of some kind- they will never know what to expect and when. I was clear this year starting off saying 3-4 times a week (maybe more?) is the precedent set here this year. These are easy tasks for me to accomplish, 3 great solid posts plus a linkup at the end of the week. Our linkup goes live on every Sunday (Bloggy Brunch) and if you’re curious, please come link your favorite past or present post with us.  
  • Do you set New Year’s resolutions? Why or why not?
I didn’t set any resolutions. I think the second you call something a resolution then it probably wont happen or be brought to fruition. I can call them goals or intentions (see this post) and be successful by them and true to myself. I have a lot of things I want to follow through with and make happen this year. I have a lot to achieve so hold on tight for the new ride that will be 2017.

  • How do you work for what you want?
I try to work hard and steady. I tend to give up and quit too easily but I’m aware of that now and don’t want to do that anymore. Otherwise my dreams won’t come true if i keep kidding myself. I want to make a schedule and meet my goals. And not let myself fall by the wayside in the meantime. By creating small goals and attaining each step as it comes. It’s the best thing to do! 

  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself having lots of growth and thriving in most areas of my life. I want to have our home life, routine and budget in a better place. We have a lot to do in 5 years time- which can pass very quickly. We need to get a professional budget planner and we are wanting to do that sooner than later. I hope we can be close to getting a home of our own or owning a rental property. My marriage is a goal of mine, to be stronger and more in tune. We are at a good place for being seven years later but being more connected is always good. I just want to be happy, healthy and blessed. Which I know I will be. 
This was a very deep helpful questionnaire by Belle Brita blog and I felt great about answering these questions.
