After reading some brilliant blog posts from great bloggers (including http://www.myrandommusings.co.uk/2017/01/reflecting-2016-blogging-bucket-list/ , http://mudpiefridays.com/2017/01/10/three-blogging-goals-2017/ and http://www.cuddlefairy.com/2016-stats-did-i-reach-my-goals/) discussing their 2016 goal achievements, I’ve been inspired to set myself some 2017 Blog Goals…
My Top 5 Blog Goals for 2017:
- Content, content, content.
So who’s going to return to read a blog with sporadic/crappy blog posts here and there? No one. Therefore my No. 1 priority for 2017 is to keep putting regular and relevant posts up and out there. I’ve decided to set myself the target of two posts per week (trying to be realistic for when I return to work).
2. Get 500 Instagram followers.
500 Instagram followers is a big ask, I think – especially as I’m currently on 62 followers – so some heavy internet research into ‘How to grow your Instagram following’ to come… (if your not one of them, please help me achieve this goal by following me here https://www.instagram.com/mymummymanual/?hl=en)
3. Keep up-to-date with my blog posts on http://meetothermums.com/blog/blogger/mymummymanual #BlogSquad
Very excited to be part of the MeetOtherMums #BlogSquad: an amazing site helping mums meet other likeminded mums and giving mums an avenue to share their thoughts and stop those lonely, isolated feelings from creeping in. Monthly blog post needed.
4. Don’t forget about Pinterest.
When I was pregnant I spent my entire time on Pinterest. Anything I wanted to know: from newborn baby photography to pregnancy exercises, from week-by-week baby development to Top Baby Names, Pinterest was my first port of call. So I’m not sure what happened once he arrived but I’ve barely looked. So target 4 is to kick start my Pinterest use again and try and grow my followers.
5. Take part in Linky’s.
I’ve already done a couple of posts on the linky’s with the #BloggerClubUk – which has been a great way to get inspired and find other blogs/bloggers. Target 5 – get connected with other bloggers!
