Every so often I like to share my future plans for my blog. As there is now less than 20 weeks left of 2017 I thought now would be a good time to do this.
***Important Notice ***
I am changing the name of my Blog. From October it will no longer be called “What is hoped for”.
To be honest “What is hoped for” was only meant to be a temporary name as I couldn’t think of anything else at the time. I chose that name as it is sentence from my favourite scripture – Hebrews 11.1. Also at the time that sentence summed up my blogging journey, what I was hoping for as I ventured back into the world of blogging. Over the past few months I have really tried to put more effort into my blogging and as the blog has evolved I feel as though the name does not reflect my blog anymore.
I am planning a big name reveal post… so I will not be revealing the new name today.
September – “Roald Dahl Month” Last year was a 100 years since the great man himself was born, which means this year is 101 year anniversary. As I missed last year, I will be marking it this year instead. September will have plenty of Roald Dahl themed posts – books and movies will feature quite prominently of course. I am also hoping to do some kind of art work based on one of his books for the month which I can feature.
Along with celebrating Roald Dahl there will also be mention of the illustrator most synonymous with his books – Quentin Blake. I went and saw a mini exhibition of some of his work earlier in the year and I am planning on going to another one in September.
October – Towards the end of October I am going to Disney Land Paris with my daughter who also turns 18 years this month. Last year I spent October participating in a “Book-tober” challenge. As I have planned a book theme for both September and December I don’t want to bore everyone anymore on my love of books.
October will also be the launch of my new Blog name – so maybe there might be some posts centred around that.
November – This month marks the half way point on my 101 list (101 Things in 1001 Days). This month will mainly consist of reflections on the 101 list, achievements and plans for the future. I am considering taking part in NaNoWriMo again this year but we will see.
December – “Jane Austen Month” – On the 18 July 2017 many fans of Jane Austen marked 200 years since her death and so did I with a little tribute post. However, December will be Jane Austen on my blog as this was the month that Jane was born. This month will of course feature book and movie reviews, mainly on the modern re-tellings or spin-offs of Jane Austen’s work. I am also planning on doing something creative for this month based on Austen’s work.
2018 – Who knows what the new year will bring – hopefully lot’s of new and wonderful things but it is too soon to plan such things yet.
Everyone loves Free Stuff and if I get over a 100 followers on my blog I am planning on doing a little giveaway.
So, that is a few of my future plans for the blog. I hope you like them.
