2016 Blog Goals

At first, I wasn’t going to be doing a post on my goals for this year. However, goals are an important thing for me that I like to work towards so I felt I needed to make some. I have also found that many bloggers share the same goals that I have in mind and would love to connect with these bloggers. Therefore, I am creating the very popular Blog Goals 2016 post.

  1. Remain active. This is the big one for me! I tend to neglect my blog when life gets in the way and I want it to stop because my blog is actually a big part of my healing process. At the moment, I hope to have at least one post up every weekend.
  2. Write about what want to write about. This blog is my happy place and I have many passions that I can write about. This means there will be a lot of variety and no real niche but that’s not what’s important to me right now. You’re likely to see mental health, book and product posts.
  3. Make connections. I love making connections with fellow writers and bloggers due to not knowing many in real life. This can be done in a number of ways whether it is through a twitter chat, a private message, a comment or a Guest Post!
  4. Develop. I want this blog to develop into something that many people love. I want to develop relationships with companies that I love.
  5.  Grow. At the time of writing this post I had doubled my twitter followers in the space of two days. My views are also higher than ever which I was not expecting so soon! This year I am going to set myself the goal of reaching 300 twitter followers and 300 blog followers/subscribers. I do not believe in buying followers or anything of the sort so I feel these numbers are a good starting goal to get working on.
  6. Share. After my blog was discovered by people without me planning on it I decided I would like to share my blog with people I know in everyday life. I’m not sure when I will do this but it is an important part of this process, I think. Even if I don’t share with all my immediate friends on facebook, for example, I will certainly share with those I think will support me.

I have more goals that I may work towards but I don’t want to set them in stone. I was considering the possibility of hosting a twitter chat one evening and attending a blogger meetup. However, due to work commitments and my personal goals for the year that are not blogging related I’m not sure if these can be achieved this year or next.

I would love to hear about your goals so feel free to comment with your blog links for me to have a look at and comment on!

    YEP. THESE ARE AS PERFECT AS BLOGGING GOALS CAN BE. I LOVE IT. Sharing your blog with more people you know is really strange at first, but people are so incredibly supportive so I’m sure you won’t regret it. Also, I love your goal about writing for yourself. That is so so important and it’s only by writing about what YOU want that you find your niche. I remember when I was having a similar kind of crisis my boyfriend at the time said to me, you know you should just be unapologetically you, because people always rally behind the people who aren’t afraid to be themselves and carve roads of their own. It always stuck with me, and now my blog is intensely personal, because that’s what I want it to be.

    I haven’t set any blogging goals as yet for this year, but I think these ones will linger in my mind. Really great post!!x

    Love,

    Anne

      Thank you for this comment! That’s the thing – I get the opposite of support from certain people in real life but I don’t want those few people to prevent those who could love my blog knowing about it – we’ll see! I love what your boyfriend told you, at 18 I’ve had to battle to be myself throughout my teenage years but I’m keeping it up so far 🙂 You should set some that are achievable to lift your mood at the end of the year! Thank you so much x

    Best of luck with your blog goals, there’s no reason why you shouldnt achieve them! You put a lot of effort into your blog 🙂 I’ve just followed you on Bloglovin and Twitter so you’re one tiny step closer to your goals! I’d love to start going to some blog events and being more active in the community myself.

    Great blog goals! I think writing about what YOU want to write about is one of the most important parts. It’s easy to get sucked into the stereotypical posts but actually you should write whatever the hell you want to! As long as you’re happy, that’s all that is important!

      Hi Jodie, so glad to see you agree! I have so many hobbies and passions and feel there’s no reason to only include some of them on my blog. Thank you for the comment 🙂 x

      Thank you Charlotte, I think it is very important to have achievable goals otherwise they are not going to lead to happiness or be healthy for our mind…I’d love to be able to get to one but they all take place in London it seems! Would love to x
