♡ Blogging goals ♡

August 01, 2018

Now school work has calmed down, I decided to stick myself into my blog head first - to work on the best content I can and grow it. Spoiler alert it’s benefitted my blog so much. I’ve been using twitter to promote and it’s grown so much, like I I’m so shocked how quickly it’s happening! I’m so happy with how it’s grown and how everything has shot up. It’s making me so happy how it’s going up and up, really inspiring me more.


With all this time where school is calming down (it’ll get hectic in September again you’ll notice) there’s no better time then the present! For the first time in my 2 years of having my blog, I decided to set myself some goals. I’ve always saw it as a hobby and wanted it to grow but for some reason I’ve had an urge for it to grow so so much more and what better way to do this then set goals??

 I’ve decided to do 2 separate categories, monthly and yearly. I only started this in July so there isn’t many goals, which is why I’m centring the post around my August goals but including my July ones to show how my blog has changed over the month. It really lays out the starting point for me and July is how far id like to grow

 July goals ♡
 - update my blog format / make the little changes I want
 - Reach 100 bloglovin followers - Aim for around 100 page views per day
 - Over the month, get 2,000 page views
 - Put ads on my blog
 - Buy my domain for my blog

 Overall in the month, I hit 5/6 of these goals over the month!! I’m so happy about this, I didn’t expect to hit as many as I did as this is my first month of putting 1000% in my blog. You can tell I have and it’s really paid off - the feelings of proudness and happiness I’ve had over this month seeing my blog grow has made me so happy. I honestly did so much better then I expected - I went wayyyyy past these goals over the month which has honestly made me me so happy as I did not expect to do this well.

 August goals ♡
 - Reach 160 bloglovin followers
 - hit 2,500 twitter followers
- Aim for around 100 page views per day (month 2)
 - Over the month, get 5,000 page views
 - Use Pinterest as a traffic source
 - Figure out affiliate links
 - Make a media kit

 These are the things I’d like to achieve for the month! Since July was a success I tried to aim high yet be reasonable about it. Honestly these are some huge numbers (to me!) and it would be a dream to hit them. My biggest focus is promoting and growing my blog at the moment and I’m doing well at it and I can only get better. Each month I’m going to set myself a focus on my blog and I’m going to try go for it.

 End of year ♡
 - Constantly post twice a week
 - Reach 250 bloglovin followers
 - Reach 50,000 page views
 - Hit 4,000 twitter followers
 - Have worked with 1 brand
 - Go self hosted
 - Sign up for the blogger programme
 - Do blogmas this year! (failed past 2 years)

 These are the biggest goals that I really would love to hit by the end of the year. I am gaining so much motivation knowing I’ve something to work towards. I’m honestly not expecting to hit any of them because they’re really big (for me I think atleast) and are aiming for a lot - it could be too much at the moment, but if you can’t set big goals, what are you working towards??

 I’m so happy I decided to set myself goals, I feel like it’ll motivate me more knowing I’m working towards something and I get so excited to hit my goals. It drives me to work harder and helps me enjoy blogging more. Let’s see what the rest of the year brings!
