I cannot believe that I’ve been blogging for nearly four months – it’s crazy, isn’t it?! These first few months have absolutely flown – I’ve achieved goals that I thought it would take me until the end of the year to hit, I’ve met some absolutely wonderful people, and I recently went self hosted! I’m so proud of how far I’ve come so far, and having reached so many of my own personal blog goals, I’ve decided to set myself some blog goals for both the short term, and for the future..
∙ Post everyday in December..
I am absolutely loving reading everyone’s posts this month, but it was way too short notice for me! I love to be prepared, and want to ensure that everything I put out is well thought out and written well – I have already started planning and writing to ensure that I’m happy when it finally comes around! I am determined to create and put out a brand new post every day that month, and cannot wait to read every else’s work..
∙ Improve my photography..
This is something that I have been conscious about ever since I started – I have always loved photography, and find that I often strive so hard for perfection the first time that if it doesn’t happen straight away, I often give up (obviously not a great attitude to have)! I want to ‘stick at it’ and continue to work until I am happy with every picture I produce..
∙ Go to a blogging event..
I have long since dreamed of being invited to a blogging event! I absolutely love reading every’s posts about visiting new shops, bar and restaurants, and I get so excited.. With the Oxford Westgate opening in the next month or so, I am keeping my fingers, toes and everything else crossed in the hope of being invited to an event!
∙ Make more contact..
I love reading other people’s blogs, and I want to make more of an effort to comment and interact with other people! Twitter has helped so much with my blog, in terms of making friends and being able to get content ‘out there’, and I’m super excited to continue to make friends and hopefully, meet up with some fellow bloggers in the near future..
∙ Reach 2000 followers on Twitter by the end of 2018..
As I said, Twitter has helped incredible amounts so far, and I’ve fallen in love with it! I’ve worked so hard to grow my following this year, after falling slightly out of love with Instagram – I’m determined to continue to work and grow, and would be over the moon if I managed to reach 2000 followers by the end of 2018!
I find that so many people focus on views – I have always loved writing, and of course, knowing that people read my blog is important to me on a level, but I’d hate to focus too heavily on the numbers and would rather focus on creating great content!
What were your goals when you first started blogging, and did you achieve them? What are your blog goals for the future?
