Big big big plans for 2016. I want Emmmmerz to pay for itself, if not more. To do that I need to ramp up my blogging game and actually get serious about it.
Emmmmerz is now my job. (good thing I love it!)
Over the course of the year I want to start including tons of new things into the site, most of which is listed below.

$$ to spend
Get a PO box (stinkers are expensive here $166 a year for a 5×5 box which is the smallest offered)
Get upgraded hosting. (looking at $200 annually)
Design and order blog business cards.
Get headshots done for the blog. (no more hiding out behind my logo?)
Buy custom theme/designer services
EasyIndexPlus + EasyRecipe Plus
CommentLuv Pro
WP Rocket
MBP Ninja Affiliate

Build a Larder (a page that lists all of the Chow Chart downloads)
Convert all past recipes into “Recipe Markup Language”
Reorganize my Pinterest boards and add covers to each one.
Open an Affiliation/Sponsorship shop (this will allow readers to buy an ad that helps the blog pay for itself. And it will also offer affiliation links, which means that another blogger can promote me, while I promote them ūüėÄ )
Actually publish a newsletter. (this will include where I am with my goals, things about to be published/happening on the blog, and fun little extras just for EEE’s.)
Publish the printables I have already made. (looking at your birthday and baby shower stuff)
Create all past holiday meal Chow Charts. (Chow Charts are: Menus, recipes, and shopping list for a meal.)
Start a video series of me cooking recipes here at Emmmmerz.
365 posts for 2016. (Not necessarily one on each day, but by the end there needs to be 365.)
*FINISH* backdating missing posts.
