Goals For 2016

My blog will be 1 year old in March so I haven’t had the opportunity yet to do a yearly goal post. So I have thought long and hard about my list for this year and what I want to achieve for my blog. 
I have also added a little list at the bottom of this post of my own personal competition win goals for 2016, which is something I have never done before, but with a new baby on the way really soon and the up keep of my blog I want to be more focused in what competitions I enter to save time.

  • Content:

Posting: I need to be more regular at posting material to keep my readers loyal. I have got a blog planner up and running now so hopefully it will keep me on track! 

Book reviews: I would love to read, review and post a book review each week. 
7 Hints and Tips: I had great success with my series of 7 Hints and Tips posts last year so this is something I would love to get back into again and come up with some great fresh ideas.
Monthly Competition Wins List: When I first started blogging I used to post at the beginning of each month a list of competition wins from the previous month. This used to be my motivation for keeping up the comping. This is something I need to get back into. 
  • Promoting
My goal this year is to be more proactive in promoting my blog and posts, using tools like Buffer and Hootsuite to schedule tweets throughout the day. Post regularly on instagram and use pinterest more. I would also like to discover more blog linkups and link to these at different times throughout the week. 

  • Statistics
  1. Increase Twitter followers to 2k
  2. Increase Instagram followers to 300
  3. Increase Pinterest followers to 300
  4. Increase Bloglovin followers to 400
I would also love to increase my blog visitors to 2k per month.

    I have goals to increase my Social media stats and I also need to get a handle on pinterest. As for other goals, I need to sit and write them out tonight. I was a tad hungover on new years day so didn't get the chance.
