I’m so over the moon with the progress my blog has made up until this day, all the support I get warms the heart so much, I can even put into words how much I appropriate it.
I thought that it would be a nice idea to set myself a few goals for my blog in 2018. I may not be able to achieve them all but I think it’s always a good idea to have something to aspire to, something to work towards so here’s my little list;
POST AT LEAST 4 FOUR POSTS EVERY MONTH
I understand that some months life is going to get crazy and finding the time to write, edit and take photo’s, is going to be very tough; especially when work gets a bit hectic in the summer. It’s in these months that I still like to hit the goal of 4 a month, it will just require a bit of prior planning and organisation which i’d like to think i’m getting much better at. I’m defiantly 100% sure that no matter what i’m not going to have a 5/6 month break like I did this summer, never again, it’s just not happening.
REACH 3.5K ON INSTAGRAM
I always feel a bit uneasy saying I want to reach a higher follower count as at the end of the day it’s just numbers, not the be all or end all. However, it’s a goal in my head so I thought I might as well share it, I’d love to reach 3.5 on Instagram, that’s only 550 more than I have now. I don’t think it’s too unreasonable, as naturally within the next year i’m going to chat to more blogger and find more I like who I want to follow. We’ll see…
GO TO A BLOGGER EVENT
THEY JUST LOOK SO FANCY AND EXCITING AND DREAMY, PLEASE 2018?
I think the main reason I’d love to attend some events is to actually meet other bloggers in person, it’d be quite a different experience to just chatting online. I just really want some more blogger pals and some I can drop a message and be like ‘tea, cake and photo-shoot?’. If you feel the same please drop me a message on twitter, I’d love that!
REACH 500 FOLLOWERS ON BLOGLOVIN
This year I’ve taken my blog self-hosted meaning I lost all my previous WordPress followers. It’s no big deal but I’d just like to grow by blog following on another site so those that’re interested can still view and enjoy my blog.
IMPROVE MY PHOTOGRAPHY/ FLATLAYS
How to take a perfect flatly is still a big mystery to me, one I want to get slightly closer to solving. The plan is to get a soft-box to help with the lighting element, I’ll then get some more cute blogging props such as confetti, post cards, flowers and we’ll go from there.
Don’t cave in when it comes around to paying the bill for the following year of self hosting, it’s your blog, your space, a part of you on the internet. It’s staying this way, you love it so don’t go back to WordPress hosting. (This is a little note for me for when it comes around to the time next year when i’m debating the payment, remind me of this please)
