Welcome back to Fadima Mooneira. 2022 is coming to an end. In 3 days, we will welcome 2023. Are you guys excited for a brand new year? And how was your 2022 so far? I hope you guys had a fantastic year and 2023 will be better for all of us. Insya-Allah ^_^
In today's post, I'm going to share a recap of my 2022. Yep, I'm going to share the seven things that achieved this year, my 2023 resolutions, and things that you will see on this blog next year. Now let's not waste time and begin this post with the seven things that I achieved this year...
THE SEVEN THINGS THAT I ACHIEVED IN 2022
#1 HAD 2 COLLABORATION BOOKS PUBLISHED
Last year, I participated in three book-writing projects with various authors. One got published last year, and two are published this year- Patah Tumbuh & Komplot Cerpen Penulis Paluan Seni Vol.1. Syukur alhamdulillah, these two books are lifetime achievements for me. As an author, I now have published 7 books overall- 1 solo book, 1 novel, and 5 collaboration books. Having seven books published is a good kickstart for me as an authorpreneur. I wish to participate again in these kinda book writing projects next year. I want to collaborate with more authors and publish more collaboration books in 2023. Insya-Allah.
#2 FORMED MY OWN PUBLISHING COMPANY
In March 2022, I became a business owner and formed my own publishing company- Fadneira Imaginative Empire (FIE). Having my own publishing company is a dream come true for me. I'm forever grateful for this. At the moment, FIE is still a small company. And this company only publishes books by Fadima Mooneira ^_^ Insya-Allah, I will work hard to grow FIE and make this company big in the future. Besides being a publishing company, I also want to make FIE a creative content company and a creative hub for creative young Malaysians. I want to help myself and other creative people in my country to achieve their dreams. Please pray the best for me, guys ^_^
#3 HAD MY FIRST NOVEL PUBLISHED
Besides two collaboration books, I also had my first novel published in 2022. My first novel is titled Fail Merah. Fail Merah belongs to the New Adult Romance and Josei genre. It tells the story of a somber young diplomat who wants to avenge his father's death. But on his journey, he meets a beautiful young woman who makes him believe in love and kindness again. So which one will he choose? Love or revenge?
Fail Merah is Fadneira Imaginative Empire's first product. Having Fail Merah published is another dream come true for me. Syukur alhamdulillah. I had this dream to become a novelist ever since I was only 16 years old. I am an imaginative person and love sharing my imagination with others ^_^ I also worked hard to make this dream come true. I've been working on Fail Merah ever since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. And I did more than just write the story. However, I will tell you more about that in point no.4. For those who are interested to know more about Fail Merah and even purchase the novel, please feel free to click on this link >> FAIL MERAH BY FADIMA MOONEIRA. You guys can also purchase the novel via an online bookstore called SM Books & Collectibles >> FAIL MERAH AT SM BOOKS & COLLECTIBLES
#4 LEARNED ABOUT BOOK PUBLISHING & MARKETING
As I mentioned in point no.3, I did not just write the story for Fail Merah. I did the editing, designed the novel's layout, and applied for the ISBN myself. Besides these three, I also worked closely with a professional book critic, a professional graphic designer for the cover design, and a printing company to print the novels. As an authorpreneur, I learned the full process of book publishing to make Fail Merah a reality. I'm now doing the marketing for Fail Merah. I already learned, applied, and created some strategies to sell my first novel. Thank God, I already sell some of the novels that I printed. Thank you to those who already purchased the novel. I hope you guys enjoyed Fail Merah and will continue to support me in the future. Right now, I'm also looking for new strategies to apply to market Fail Merah and create awareness for the novel. Please pray that everything will be at ease for me in 2023. Insya-Allah ^_^
#5 TRAVELED TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY WITH MY FAMILY
Traveling is one of the things that my family and I love to do together. Every year, we always make plans to travel once or twice (one local vacation & one overseas vacation). But because of the pandemic, we did not get the chance to travel overseas in 2020 and 2021. Syukur alhamdulillah, this year we get to travel to Phuket. It was our second time traveling to Phuket. The first time we visited Phuket was in 2010. Phuket is still beautiful as before. We had a great time there. I am grateful ^_^ Insya-Allah, in 2023 my family and I will travel more. We are now making some travel plans for 2023.
#6 SECURED A PART-TIME JOB
2022 is also the year that I ventured out of my comfort zone and tried new things. Besides being a freelancer, I also secured a part-time job for myself to own some extra moolah and work experience. Yep, I'm now a part-time Sales Ambassador for a British cosmetic company. Besides owning money, I also gained some experience and knowledge in the beauty industry, marketing, and sales. This part-time job is a blessing for me. It makes me realize that I'm not awkward at making sales and communicating with people. And even though I'm an introvert, I still can be friendly and chatty with others. It makes me more confident in myself. Syukur alhamdulillah ^_^
#7 MAKE NEW FRIENDS
This year, I make new friends than years before. Syukur alhamdulillah. I'm very grateful for this achievement. I make new friends while working part-time. Most of my new colleagues are lovely people. They are fun people to be with and not the judgemental type. Besides my new colleagues, I also make new friends virtually. These people are my fellow writers, bloggers, and artists. The new friends I meet virtually are also lovely people, especially Simona, Fred & Cristiana of The Grumpy Olive, Izzy Matias, Ezioma Kalu, Sandra Ans, Lynn Meijia, Lisa Notebook, and Jenny Marston. We brainstorm and shared a lot of ideas together. I hope I will continue making new friends in 2023. I hope to meet more lovely and interesting people both in person and virtually. Insya-Allah.
Ok, so these are the things that I achieved in 2022. Overall, 2022 is an awesome year for me. Syukur alhamdulillah. 2022 is the year I ventured out of my comfort zone, try new things, and even practiced self-love. In 2022, I learned to love and appreciate myself more than years before. I learned to set boundaries, make myself a priority, stay away from toxic people, and don't bother much about what other people say about me. I now believe that loving myself is one of the keys for me to achieving success. And it did pay off. Alhamdulillah ^_^ Insya-Allah, I will continue this practice in 2023.
Since I already shared the seven things that I achieved in 2022, now it's time for me to share the eight things that I want to achieve in 2023. These eight things are also my 2023 resolutions.
THE EIGHT THINGS THAT I WANT TO ACHIEVE IN 2023
#1 I want to finish writing my second WIP by the end of January so that I can start the self-editing work in February.
#2 I want to sell all the Fail Merah novels that I printed last August so that I can publish my second novel. Insya-Allah.
#3 I want to travel more with my family (local & overseas). I also want to discover new interesting places.
#4 I want to do well in my part-time job and take my sales skills to the next level.
#5 I want to learn more about creative writing, book publishing & marketing. Being awesome has no limit ^_^
#6 I want to participate in more writing projects, work with new authors, and publish more collaboration books.
#7 I want to be consistent with my fitness workout and health :P Hopefully, I will achieve this goal in 2023 with the help of my new journal. It has a fitness planner in it. Kyaa!
#8 I want to continue practicing self-love and improve myself as a better person day by day.
THINGS YOU WILL SEE ON THIS BLOG IN 2023
I just designed a 2023 blog header, some graphics, and widgets for this blog last week. Insya-Allah, this blog will have a new look starting this January. Purple & yellow will remain as this blog's corporate color. Fadneira will also remain as this blog's mascot. This blog will continue publishing and sharing articles on Lifestyle, Pop-Culutre, Edutainment, Travel & Beauty.
FYI, nothing much will change on Fadima Mooneira in 2023. The Fadima Mooneira Art Gallery monthly tour and The Book Heartthrob Profile series will continue as usual. But I will no longer do The Bloggers Interview series in 2023. Sorry to all Fadima Mooneira Bloggers Interview fans. The owner of this blog has so many new ideas to share and so many topics to geek about with you guys next year. There's no place left for the bloggers interview. However, I'm still accepting guest posts on this blog on topics for pop-culture, edutainment, lifestyle, beauty, and travel. If any of you are interested to become a guest writer on Fadima Mooneira, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. We can discuss the post you want to share. And I will let you know if the post is suitable for this blog or not.
Ok, this is all I want to share with you guys in my last post for 2022. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post. I'll see you guys again in my first post for 2023. Insya-Allah.
Last but not least, I wish you guys a very Happy New Year. I hope you guys will have a good celebration with your family and loved ones. I pray that 2023 will be better than 2022 for all of us. So how was your year, dearies? What is your best achievement in 2022? Is there something you did this year that you're proud of? Please feel free to share your 2022 in the comment box below with me ^_^
