Wow, the first quarter of the year has gone already. I can’t quite believe it’s very nearly April. At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself some goals so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to do a bit of an update.
I started the Youtube channel back in November ’17 so really, not that long ago. Although I haven’t made quite as many videos as I would have liked I am still pretty happy with how everything is going. With just over 600 subscribers now I feel like I’m going the right way and I just need to film some more content.
Unfortunately, I struggle a bit to think of topics for chatty vlogs and we don’t go on too many days out etc. so I can’t film those. I like doing toy videos and have a couple more lined up to film soon. We also have our holiday to Majorca in a couple of weeks so be prepared to be spammed at the end of the month.
I really wanted to make more of an effort to create more original content this year and I’m happy to say that I have done this. I still post quite a few reviews and sponsored work but I am trying to work this into a more natural pattern with more relevant topics. I don’t want anyone reading this blog to think that it’s not really about me, John and Erin anymore because it absolutely is.
I would absolutely love to hear from anyone if they have anything they would like to read from me.
This is definitely something I am getting better at. If I come up with an idea for a blog post I put it on my calendar so I don’t forget about it. When I receive something for review as soon as it arrives I get it on the calendar. As soon as I agree some paid work I do the same.
I try to plan out what I want to get done on my work days each week so that I am always a little bit ahead of my self. Really though, I would like to always be a couple of weeks ahead of myself with scheduled content to make things a bit easier on myself. I’m actually trying to get this done now so that I am prepared and ahead for when we go on holiday.
Overall, I think I’m doing okay with my blog goals this year. I haven’t made goals for statistics which takes the pressure off quite a bit.
If you’re a blogger I’d love to know if you made goals this year and how you’re doing.

I planned to make more of an effort with pinterest, which I have done and I’ve found it’s helped massively with getting people to my blog.
