When I realised I wasn’t going to hit the blogging goals I set myself last year, I decided that I wouldn’t set any stat related goals for 2016.
Well, over the past few weeks I’ve had a burst of motivation which has caused my blog grow a bit faster than normal, so now that’s out the window and I’M ALL ABOUT THE STATS again. So I’m going to set myself some goals for what I want to achieve in 2016.
Twitter: Reach 7000 followers.
As I type this, I’m at 4400 followers on Twitter. I’ve recently been working hard on interacting more on Twitter and it’s been going well for me, so I’m hoping I can grow this to 7000 by the end of year 2016.
I gained 2200 followers in 2015, so it seems like an achievable goal!
Bloglovin’: Reach 3500.
That seems like a bit number! I’m at 2300 now and I’ve been gaining around 50-100 followers a week for the past few weeks, so I feel like I’ll be able to achieve this one!
E-mail Newsletter: 1 news letter a month.
BLAH I’ve been so bad at sending out news letters, but it’s something I want to get better at.
In 2016, I’m going to send out on news letter a month – it will basically be a selection of my favourite blog posts across all 3 of my blogs and a bit of a life update and will go hand in hand with the Instagram update I do each month, where I tend to recap my previous month and highlight certain posts.
Create a blog course.
In January, I’m going to be doing a blog course on this here blog.
It’s going to be aimed around helping bloggers improve their blogs and will include actionable next steps for bloggers to go away in the week and do.
My goal is to then extend this course into an eBook.
Experiment with social media.
This isn’t a goal I can measure, but I want to try out new ways of using social media that doesn’t usually work for me! I have started using Pinterest lately to see if I can drive traffic to my blog. I want to try using new ones every few months to see what can work for me. I’m going to give Facebook a shot, and maybe Google+ if anyone can give me an actual answer on if it’s being discontinued or not!
What are your 2016 blog goals?
