Staying at home: To do list

As times have changed and the majority of us have to stay at home (sending my love and support for all the amazing key worker’s right now) during this time I decided I needed to keep positive and use this time to get things done.

Therefore, I have put together a list of things I want to do within my life/house during this uncertain time! I was totally inspired by the lovely Victoria from VictoriaVintage and her list during lockdown, so definitely check that out!

Let’s get into it…

  • check for broken links
  • write blog posts/schedule posts
  • do some more research into DA and SEO (it’s time I properly learn about these

Victoria also suggested to have a digital clean up, which is definitely something I need to do! I have a bit more time now so will be deleting unnecessary emails or unfollowing accounts that I don’t want to follow.

There you go my isolation to do list! I am hoping to get a lot done, as well as cleaning and building up my skills! Of course remember to practice self-care during this time and look after your mental health.

I hope you enjoyed and do let me know your plans and if there is anything you wish to get done during this time in the comments, or even write your own post!

Also I hope you all stay safe, positive and I am sending my love to you all.

  1. These are great ideas, Gemma! Now is such a perfect opportunity to make use of our extra time and be productive. I had a big declutter at the weekend and tidied the garden too so it’s nice to sit outside when the weather is slightly warmer 🙂 It’s a really good time to get organised with blogging too, hope your research goes well! Thanks for sharing, hope you have a lovely week <3 xx
