2016 Blogging Goals♡

It's the first day of 2016. Can you believe it?  Last year was one crazy roller coaster ride but I must say it has been a great one blog wise. I learnt so much and I have grown so much as a blogger especially in the last few months.  I've gotten to work with some pretty amazing brands and I have met some cool people. I did not expect any of this when I started but I wouldn't want it any other way now. As we begin 2016 I have set myself some blog related goals. I was a bit hesitant about sharing them but I thought why not?  It will surely help me stay focused and motivated to work towards them.


Get Organised:
I think I have a lot of time on my hands but I just don't know how to use it effectively. I have been planning and scheduling posts recently which has been helping a great deal. I think I need to write things down more often and do things as soon as I can. I just need a really pretty diary and I'll be sorted. 

Create a schedule:
I usually post on random days but I decided that it's time I come up with some kind of routine. I obviously need to get organised first but I'm getting there. 

Photography:
My photography has improved so much since I started. I cringe when I look at my old pictures. Tshegofatso how can you use a different filter for every picture in one post? I don't know what I was thinking but I have come a long way and I still have a long way to go. 

Triple My Traffic:
It's a bit ambitious but have seen my blog traffic steadily increase in the past few months and I happy with that. It's so amazing to see that so many people read my little blog. In 2016 I hope to reach a wider audience and maybe even imspire some people! 

Blogger Friends:
I don't think I have enough friends who are bloggers. It would be wonderful to have a conversation with someone and they just understand what I'm talking about. You feel me?

Youtube:
That is where it all began. I started making Youtube videos before I started blogging and somehow I just stopped making them. I spend all my time watching Youtube videos and in the new year I hope more of my own. It's always fun to make them, I love being in front and behind the camera! 

Contribute:
I really enjoy writing but my blog is the only platform where I do this at the moment. I would love to write for some magazines whether online or hard copy. It just be amazing to share my work.

Social media:
I would like to grow my social media following this year. It wouldn't hurt to have a couple more followers, right? I think it will really benefit my blog and help me reach a wider audience. 

Blogger Events:
This is a crazy one because I'm probably the most socially awkward person you'll ever meet. I just don't do well in social situations but seeing pictures and videos of blogger events has definitely made me want to attend a few. They look fun and it would be fantastic to meet some like minded people. 

What are some of your goals for 2016?

  7. I feel you with these goals.
    Getting organised and having a schedule are two I have as well, kind of. My life is busy with studying at college, but I'm trying to organise myself by having a new post every Saturday, and a new video every Friday (definitely the same with Youtube before Blogging. I started making videos when I was 16, started blogging at 20 and this year I'll be 22!) I wish you all the best in reaching these goals, I have no doubt you'll manage it :)

  15. Great goals!
    I've had some of these for the past years, which is a bit sad, but hopefully I will be more motivated this year.

    And about making blogger friends, I'm going to steal this one. I use to have some internet friends but I lost touch once I started university, but I do miss random chats with intelligent people, which you seem to be.

    So if you ever feel like talking, send me a message or email. :)

    Either way, I really enjoyed browsing through your blog. I've recently started my own blog and I would love to know what you think about it. That is only if you have the time.

    If you do decide to give it a quick read, you can find it at ---> https://anasdomain.wordpress.com/ .

    Lots of love,

  16. Fab goals! I definitely want to start a blog schedule this year. I was doing well with every other day at one point last year but I think I'm going to stick to three a week under the same theme this time around :)
