5 Goals to Set for Your Blog



If your aim is to become professional blogger (or even if you already blog full time) it’s always useful to set yourself new goals every few months. Having something to work towards, even if it’s just a personal goal is incredibly important. Here are a few ideas to get you started!

1.       Set up and Maintain a New Social Media Channel

Some of you will be filled with dread when it comes to this one! Keeping up with numerous social media profiles can be a struggle- especially keeping a high level of interaction! However, when used properly social media drives traffic, and this means the more profiles the better! Pinterest, Facebook, Bloglovin and of course Twitter amongst countless others can help you bring in new readers- so covering all the basis is a must!

2.       Learn a New Skill to Improve your Blog

This can be as ambitious or as simple as you like, but learning a new skill whatever it is will help you breathe new life into your blog every few months! Perhaps try improving on your photo editing skills, or even learn to code!! Code academy is free and provides easy to follow tutorials if you fancy stepping up your coding skills….

 3.       Build Relationships with more Bloggers in your Niche

This is really a goal you should always be striving for- but we all get lax sometimes so put it on the list!

4.       Make Business Cards- and Use Them!

You never know when you’re going to be bumping into someone you’d love to take a look at your blog- plus they come in very handy at blogger events!

5.       Comment on Another Blog Everyday

Bloggers always really appreciate well thought out comments that show people have genuinely been reading!

    I’m just starting to create a blog so these tips are really useful, hopefully when my blog is up and running I can comment on someone’s blog everyday, I think that’s a really good habit to get into :)
