So I have been blogging for nearly 3 months now and I have really enjoyed everything I have done, but I want to achieve loads more! I have therefore decided to write a post about my 10 goals for the next 3 months.
#1 Comment more – I really would like to read and comment on more blogs. I haven’t really been doing it enough and I think it’s a great way to interact with other bloggers and show them that you enjoyed their posts.
#2 Write a variety of different posts– Pretty much every post I have written so far has been a product review, which I love doing, but I feel like my blog needs a bit of variety. This post is hopefully the first step to achieve this goal!
#3 Be more involved on social media– I love Bloglovin and Twitter but I would like to expand to other platforms. For example I have set up a Facebook page but I barely ever go on it and I haven’t even set up an Instagram account for my blog. I would also like to take part in more chats on Twitter.
#4 Improve my photos– I have been reading a lot of blogs lately and so many of them have amazing photos. I know I shouldn’t compare myself to others but I would love to get closer to their level. My camera isn’t the greatest and I can’t afford a better one at the moment so I am going to focus on things like lighting and composition.
#5 Be more organised– I’m the kind of person who writes a post and publishes it immediately. My aim is to write more posts in advance and plan what I am going to write more than 10 minutes before I write it! I would also like to publish my posts on certain days of the week (I’m thinking Wednesdays and Sundays?).
#6 Get a few more followers– I would absolutely love to reach 200 followers on both Bloglovin and Twitter. I know followers aren’t everything and genuine readers are much more important, but it would be really nice ;). Any page likes/followers on Facebook and Pinterest would be a bonus! (Here are links to my Twitter and Bloglovin if you want to check them out.)
#7 Pay more attention to my blog design– I’m not sure if I’ll ever be completely satisfied with how my blog looks because I change my mind too much, but there are a few things I know need improving. Firstly I might make a header, as I don’t even have one at the moment.
#8 Increase my blog traffic– This one is a little more difficult for me to control. I just hope that if I keep posting and am active on social media it will increase organically.
#9 Improve my writing– I am not the best writer in the world. In school I was always more of a maths person than an English person. I tend to write very concisely ( I was ALWAYS under the word limit when writing essays), so I think I need to learn to waffle a tiny bit more. Hopefully then my posts will seem friendly rather than blunt.
#10 Stick to these goals!– I know I can’t control some of the goals but the ones I can I would like to stick to. I will be constantly re-reading this post to make sure I am doing the things I said I would.
So there are my 10 blogging goals for the next 3 months. Have you ever set any goals? If so have you managed to achieve them?
