How are we already a week in to 2018? The end of 2017 my blog saw an increase in views and my figures began to grow quite a bit. I felt like the end of 2017 was a high point for my blog and I want to continue the growth throughout 2018.
I have spent this week and the end of last year really thinking about where I want my blog to go this year. I have really been enjoying blogging for the last few months and want to make sure I stick with it throughout the whole year. So I thought by writing a post about my goals, it would hold me accountable and keep me motivated to work hard!
1. Keep increasing my page views.
The last couple of months my page views have steadily been increasing. I have been working hard to keep posting on social media and interact with my readers and this seems to have helped my page views to increase. I’m going to keep this up and hopefully start hitting higher numbers by the end of the year.
2. Grow my social media
I want to increase my followers on both Instagram and Twitter. I find it a lot easier on Instagram so I need to work on Twitter a bit more. My aim for the year is to reach 2000 followers on both of these accounts. I know it doesn’t sound like a huge number but my numbers are fairly low at the moment and I would be really happy to reach 2000.
3. Increase my DA score
At the moment my DA is 16, it bumped up four places last year. I would like to get my score to 22 this year and I think this is achievable. I really enjoy reading what other bloggers write about and comment on lots of posts so this will help boost my score.
4. Publish an email newsletter
I have been growing my email subscribers for the last few months. This year I really want to start sending out weekly emails to my readers.
My final goal for 2018 isn’t blogging related but I would really love to publish my first ebook. I have lots of ideas on book titles so I’m going to start writing it and hopefully publish in 2018.
So there you go, my goals for 2018! Lets see how I get on with these.
