I have been thinking a lot about my blogging goals for 2017 for Dillydrops blog. It has been difficult to narrow down my top goals as I seem to have so many in my mind.

Blogging Successes in 2016

Dillydrops has been very successful in 2016. I am very proud that I reached my aim of ten thousand followers on Instagram.

7 Incredible Autumn Blog Posts to Inspire You

Here are our 7 incredible autumn blog posts that will convince you that this time of year is great for families.

People always seem to have a preference as to which season is their favourite.  Generally, our friends and family favour the summer sun to drizzly autumn.  I actually like all the seasons almost equally and enjoy them all as they come around each year.

My Blogging Goals for January 2016

To improve my photography skills.

Getting a new camera and a ‘Dummies’ guide to using it, this Christmas will certainly help me to achieve this goal.  I feel that the photos on my blog have improved over 2015 but I would like them to be even better in 2016.  I would like to learn more about the technical side of using a SLR camera to get out of using the automatic mode and to understand how to use more of the manual features.
