Blogging goals for 2017

The 1st week in January I posted about my goals for 2017 (here) and although I touched on blogging, they were more my life goals rather than my blogging goals. So I’ve wrote down my blogging goals for the year with an aim to review it around June/July time to make sure I’m on track and to try and make 2017 the best year yet for my blogging journey!

GOAL 1: Increase readership and followers

This applies to everything, not just specifically to my blog but by the end of 2017 I would like to increase my readership and followers on my blog and social media pages. I currently have Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest as my main social media pages. I need to do this by posting regularly on all platforms and making sure my blog posts are promoted regularly as I can lack in this sometimes in fear of spamming people. I also need to make sure I am more engaging with the people on my feeds. Hopefully by doing this it will increase the awareness of my blog.

GOAL 2: Structure/Planning

In order to post regular content I definitely need to plan and structure my blog more. I have bought myself a beautiful little planner which will help me keep track of what I need to do and I need to make sure I set aside an hour each week to make sure I fill this planner in.

GOAL 3: Monetise

The ideal goal by the end of 2017 would be to make a regular income from my blog. I currently work part time and would love to subsidize my income with revenue from my writing. I currently earn nothing from writing this blog so I don’t have a specific monetary goal in mind but however small it would be, it would still be an achievement to me if it’s regular. I aim to do this by writing sponsored posts, advertisement and reviews etc.

GOAL 4: Attend a blogging event

I said last year that I would like to go to a blogging event but chickened out of it at the last minute. This year I’m going to put my brave big girl pants on and attend one. Which one is yet to be decided.

GOAL 5: To win a blogging award

Ok, I’m probably living in cloud cuckoo land here but why not!? I’m going to say it out loud “IN 2017 I AIM TO WIN A BLOG AWARD” There, I said it! She who dares to believe, wins and all that…

That’s about it for my blogging goals for 2017. Here’s to working hard and accomplishing everything that we dream of!

Do you have any specific blogging goals? I’d love to hear from you!

XOXOXO

    It sounds like both of us are at the same stage with our blogs. I have the same goals, especially with growing my readers. Good luck with everything!

      It’s so difficult though isn’t it!? It’s hard to keep motivated when no one seems to be reading/returning. Blogging is so time consuming so the passion has got to be there in the first place in order to make it work. Thanks for reading xx

    This is a great post! I’m very new to blogging and have the same goals as you. It would be lovely to check back in at the end of the year and see how we are doing. The main thing I think is to just enjoy it. Your blog looks fab! xx

      Thank you so much for your comment. I completely agree, if you don’t enjoy blogging there’s really not much point in doing it. It’s such hard work otherwise. Yes I’d definitely be interested to see how we are doing with our goals at the end of the year. Good luck with your blog lovely xx
