Blogging Goals 2018

Here we are again at the start of a new year. This year sees my blog turn 3, baby girl turn 2 years old and of course the arrival of baby girl number 2 in April. It’s such an exciting year ahead!

Blogging Goals 2018

Last year I made a quarterly plan for 2017 on how I was going to achieve my blogging goals. I completely smashed my earnings goal which I’m extremely happy about. So my ultimate 2017 blogging goal to turn the blog into a part-time job was successful!

These were my 2017 blog goals:

  • Post 4 times a week – Completed – in fact I have been posting between 5 and 6 times a week.
  • Set up a linky  – I set up #LuckyLinky a competition linky with the lovely Mummy in a Tutu
  • Earn £500 a month from my blog 
  • Increase my subscriber list by 50%
  • Increase my social media following by 40% – Some platforms I found much harder to increase than others. So I achieved this on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest but not Instagram. I did however start-up my Youtube channel! 
  • Complete 4 courses to help me achieve my blog goal – I completed one course
  • Comment on 90 blogs a month – I achieved about half of this.
  • Create a content timetable – This did not happen, but it will be on my list for 2018.
  • Complete 12 guest posts – I completed 6 guest posts

Blog Goals for 2018

  • With a new baby arriving in April I want to make sure I have scheduled content and be 4-6 weeks ahead.
  • Create a content timetable
  • Comment on 50 blogs a month
  • Post 4 times a week minimum
  • Create a vlog every 2 weeks
  • Earn a consistent part-time wage from my blog
  • Increase social media following by 40%
  • Work on Instagram

I would love to hear your blogging goals for 2018.

Thanks for stopping by today.

    Wow, I’m really impressed with your organisation and logical planning. My blogging goal for 2018 is to – START ONE!!! hahaha I have so many ideas but not a lot of strength as I have fibro & chronic fatigue… but eventually I’d love to do a blog that lifts spirits and helps people believe in everyday fairytales and happy endings. 😀 Best of wishes for 2018!! xx

      Thanks Claire, ahh yes getting ahead! my tip is to is write 2 posts in the time I used to write one. Over the past few months I have learned to type faster and once I get in the zone they seem to spill out! I just need to keep up with it! xx
