Blogging Goals 2018

Hi everyone, I’m determined this is gonna be the year where I really start to make my blog mine and totally own it. I want to get back to posting regular, great content and become more involved in the blogging community.

I’m gonna stop setting myself monthly goals for my blog every month because I just don’t seem to have the time to follow through and complete them. I’ve literally had the same blogging goals for the past however many months now. I’m going to make a list of goals for the whole year, then re-evaluate in June to see how I’m getting on.

I totally suck at growing my followings on accounts. I spent so much of my time this summer using Facebook groups to help grow my accounts following and they were so helpful but I just cannot find the time.

1) Increase blog following to 500. 

This is just over double the followers I have right now and I believe this is achievable to double my follow count in a year. I know it’s not all about the number of followers you have but it is a nice feeling to see your following grow.

2) Post at least twice a month. 

I think this is a realistic goal to give myself and I am confident I will manage to post twice a month most months. I hate not posting regularly on my blog.

3) Improve photo/content quality.

I can see a difference in my blog photography from when I first started blogging which is quite encouraging. I know my photos are nowhere near to the standard that I want so this is definitely something I want to improve on in 2018. I want to branch out and do more lifestyle content as well this year. I just struggle thinking of new ideas and putting my spin on things to make it original and interesting.

4) More travel and lifestyle posts

This blog is primarily a beauty blog but I have a lot of exciting road trips and travel plans for later this year I can’t wait to post about. I’m hoping to write a couple fashion posts as well but I am totally awkward in front of a camera so maybe if I get over that fear I will branch out and cover some fashion stuff too.

These are my four main blogging goals for 2018. I can’t wait to prioritise blogging again and get back into posting regularly. I don’t want this to ever feel like a chore but time management is not one of my strong points.

Hope you all enjoyed reading this post, I’d love to hear about your blogging goals for this year too.

  1. They are great goals! I’m the opposite in that I don’t think I can see a difference in my photography, oops. I also know what you mean about it feeling impossible to grow your social media following – I’m the same. Your goals seem achievable and realistic, which always helps. Good luck with them!

  2. These are some fab goals, very realistic but still ambitious! I recently ticked one goal off list to go self hosted, other than that I really just want to boost my following and engagement!
