Blogging Goals 2018
My only blogging goal going into 2017 was to post every Thursday and I couldn’t accomplish that goal. The major problem that I saw was that I did not set myself up for a successful blogging year, I only told myself that blogging once a week was something I could do. I didn’t have anything to back up my goals, and I didn’t have anything to keep myself motivated. I came up with a list of blogging goals for 2018 AND ways that I can keep myself on track.
1. Post 1 – 2 times per week
I am hoping to have enough content to post twice a week for the entire year, and more on special weeks when I am planning on doing special series, and December is a whole other beast with Blogmas. I have been brainstorming and researching content since the beginning of December and I almost have the first four months of 2018 planned out.
Stay tuned for tomorrow (New Years Day, 2018) when I will be posting my plan with me blog.
2. Plan each month
This definitely goes along with the first goal, but planning each month ahead of time gives me an idea of what content I need to create and where I really need to focus my time. For example, in April I have a workout series where I will be posting once a day for 5 days. Knowing that in advance, I can start working on that content.
3. Grow social media
I made a spreadsheet in Excel where I recorded all of my social media accounts and the amount of followers that I have. Then I set a goal for each of the social media accounts (not shown below). I want to be more intentional in posting on social media and not focusing on just one platform.
4. Score more sponsored posts
I did my first sponsored post this year with Uncommon Goods, which you can read here! I have started branching out and in 2018 I want to start approaching brands to work with them!
5. Work on monetization
A huge thing that I want to work on is monetizing my blog. This includes sponsored posts, collabs with brands, affiliate links and ads on my blog. I am still trying to understand what works best.
What are your blogging goals for 2018? Let me know in the comments or link a post if you have one! I would love to read your goals!
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!
