2017 Blog Goals

Last year, one of my biggest goals for the blog was to get a domain and I did that! Me, him, the dog and a baby! is a serious part of my life now and I have lots of things I want to achieve this year. So, here goes:

Schedule in advance – this is something I used to do all the time. I don’t know what happened. Maybe it was Erin getting more mobile. Just recently though I have been writing the day before a post is due and never actually ahead. I need to sort this out so that I can have a day off if I want to.

Social Media – I really want to spend some time trying to grow my social media accounts this year, Facebook in particular. I think I’m doing okay on Twitter and Instagram but I just don’t get Facebook really. I’m setting my goal for Facebook quite low because in all honesty, I have no idea how to get new likes. This is what I’d like to achieve in terms of followers and where I am now:

Facebook – 269/ 500

Instagram – 960/1300

Twitter – 2117/ 2700

Giveaways – I don’t feel like I hosted nearly enough giveaways last year. I love the excitement of a giveaway and I love entering them so I figured my readers would too! Brands, if you’d like me to host a giveaway please get in touch!!

Interact more often – I am so terrible for forgetting to reply to comments. I think I need to set aside a bit of time every day, or every other day, to catch up on what people have said. I think with so many things posted across different accounts each day I kind of forget to reply to everything.

DA – I’m really happy that my DA is currently 27. I remember being so excited when it hit 20. I’d love to get to 30+ this year.

Tots100 – I am so close to being top 500 so this would be a great achievement this year I think. In fact, I should probably aim for top 400 as I’m only 33 away from top 500.

I’d love to know what your blogging goals are. Also, do you have anything you think I should aim for this year?

  1. Some great goals!! I would love to concentrate on interaction! Something so easy and can be fit around day to day things but more often than not I tend to overlook it!

  2. I haven’t been brave enough to join Facebook yet – I don’t really ‘get it’ either! Some great goals, as a newer blogger I love seeing people put figures in to things! Good luck for this year!

  3. These sound like brilliant and realistic goals. You’re doing so well with your stats and I hope one day to have similar goals. As a new blogger, I don’t really have any proper goals apart from continuing to write content and learning as much as possible! Good luck. x

  4. These are great goals, I really want to work on scheduling in advance too. I really struggle with Facebook! I hope that you reach all your goals!

  5. Good luck with your goals, I’m sure you’ll smash them. I find Facebook hard too – it’s less easy to be found there I think, relies a lot on other people sharing from your page or tagging you. One of my goals is to schedule too… I’m a week ahead at the mo but I’m sure it’ll go to pot soon, oops!

  6. One of my goals is replying to people across all channels. There is always one I forget. I also think I need to rota in some time for it. These are really great goals xx

  7. I’ve no doubt you’ll smash those goals! I also found it more difficult when B got more mobile and now I’m back at work, it’s harder still. But, I’m determined to be more consistent and to grow my YouTube and Instagram x
