So I’ve been blogging for a month now, so everything is still relatively new to me but I feel like I’m making progress.
I’ve decided to set myself some realistic goals for what I want to achieve this year and I thought I would share them with you.
1. Good posts on a regular basis
So I’ve set myself a target of posting a minimum of 3 times a week.
I work full time writing and editing 13 local magazine so as you can imagine my life is always busy, so for me the key to getting my posts out is being organised.
Scheduling has been my best friend when it comes to getting posts out, so I feel like if I keep myself organised I should hopefully keep up the progress.
2. Gain 1,000 followers
So by the end of this year (hopefully well before then) I want to get 1,000 followers on my Blog, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
I know that sounds pretty low goal, but I wanted to do it without buying followers and just seeing how I go.
3. Engage with fellow bloggers
I would love to speak to more bloggers, I’ve set myself a target of spending at least 2 hours a week engaging with other bloggers, commenting on posts, following and sharing.
I think it’s important to share your fellow blogging sisters love, girl power and all!
4. Do a give away
So I’m slowly but surely building up some items for a giveaway so keep your eyes peeled. I am going to wait until I have a really good, worthwhile giveaway before doing it, so keep your eyes peeled!
5. Work on photography
So I wouldn’t say I was a bad photographer, but I would definitely say there was room for imporovent. I am hoping to improve my skills and work on my editing.
A picture speaks a 1000 words so eye catching images are a blogger essential!
6. Have fun!
I also set myself a target to remember that I set this blog up for fun! I work hard and I still have to have a social life, so instead of stressing I am going to enjoy it!
What are your goals for this year?
