So, I have always treated my blog as a hobby, and it is a hobby, one which I really enjoy actually! But this month, I thought it might be fun to set myself a few goals to see how I get on, and just because it might be fun to track my progress! At the end of this month, I can do a review post on how everything went.
I’m going to split this into blogging goals, and social media goals. I know that numbers aren’t important at all, but I just thought for one month it might be interesting to track whats going on!
Try to post two times a week.
This may not happen, given that on the 4th of June I’m starting a full time job, but I’m about to sit down and plan some ideas, so hopefully I can aim to try and post on this blog twice a week! I think I’ll aim for Wednesdays and Sundays, as that’s worked well for me in the past!
Figure out how to monetise my blog!
I’ve had this blog since 2013, and I’ve never been able to figure out how to make a few pennies from it. I’m not expecting to make a lot, and this won’t change my content, but it would be quite nice to see if I can make this hobby of mine make me a bit of money.
If any fellow bloggers have any advice or tips on this please please let me know!
Go through old posts and make sure there are no dodgy links.
I haven’t cleaned up any content on this blog since I started, and I feel like there are definitely some old posts of mine that could be edited a bit! This isn’t really essential, but it’s been on my list of things to do for a while.
Post a picture every day on Instagram.
I really love Instagram, the community of people on there are so lovely. I just want to try posting a picture a day in June, to see how it impacts on my followers/people visiting my blog/general engagement. I’d really love to reach 600 followers by the end of the month, and currently I’m on 584, so hopefully I can achieve this!
Reach 700 followers on Twitter.
50% of my blog traffic comes from Twitter, so I’d really like to try and use it more, and interact with way more bloggers!
Put more effort into my Blogs Facebook page.
I really neglect this page. I think it might be cool to try put a bit more effort into it, and maybe even post it on my personal Facebook, although that terrifies me so maybe not yet!
I don’t have loads and loads of goals, because I know that I won’t be able to complete them all, but the ones I have made, I think it will be interesting to work on them throughout the month and see how they go.
If any fellow blogger friends are reading this, and have any advice for me, please leave me a comment, or message me on Instagram! It would be really appreciated!
Thanks for reading as always.
Love, Lauren xx
