So it’s 2017 and I thought I would try out some blogging goals. Blogging goals I think tend to motivate bloggers to not only post but also interact and monitor their social media. It also gives bloggers a chance to get in touch with other bloggers and work with some companies.
While there are some numbers, I don’t actually want to focus on my blog being a numbers thing. If I look at the numbers I get stressed out, then I look at other bloggers and my ‘blogging confidence’ tends to take a nose dive. Instead I want to focus on creating better content and hopefully that will attract more followers and more engagement to my blog.
I want to follow at least 1 new blog a week
While your thinking why only 1 blog, why not 5 or 10. Well the answer is that I start school next week and I am looking for a part time job. I won’t have the time to follow more blogs. Plus I want to be able to read that bloggers blog posts and to comment on that bloggers posts. If I follow 1 blog a week thats 52 blogs a year, which equals to a lot of blog reading. Plus I am already following quite a few bloggers at the moment so I do read their works
Comment on other posts more.
While I do read lots of blog posts, I find myself not know what to reply with. leaving a ‘Great Blog Post’ seems kinda tacky and makes it seem like I didn’t read the post and just want that person to pay attention to me. This year I am going to try to engage more, not just on blog posts either but with Twitter and instagram too. Replying to what people say. maybe start up a conversation.
I think I’l have a goal of 700 twitter followers. I know that doesn’t seem like a lot to some people but it is to me. I won’t have a number goal for bloglovin or instagram yet, but still make sure to follow me. Also do please follow my Bookstagram and Book Blog.
Bring back some of my Favorite Post Series and create some new ones
I loved doing Sample Sundays (especially since I have so many samples to use) it was really fun to do. Also I want to do more OOTD and Earring/ Jewelry OTD it gave me a chance to display what I have in my closet and to think more creatively. I am not sure what other series to create but I have some ideas.
Post about more Local shops and eateries.
This will give me a chance to explore and step out of my comfort zone. Plus it gives people an Idea what Idaho is really about.
Work on my Blog Photography
At my old place I didn’t have an area that I can set up my camera and have sunlight and be able to take quality pictures. Now I do and I intend to take full advantage. I’ll have to learn some some tricks and experiment but hopefully it can take my blog the step up it needs to gain attention.
Those are my goals for now it’s nothing I don’t think I can do. As long as I stay focused and dedicated and I think I can make it work and hopefully you guys can benefit with better content and engagement.
Do you have any blog goals or just life goals set?
