Blogging Goals | 2017
This time last year, I was just starting to get to grips with running a blog, I had no goals, no ideas, not a clue that I’d be sat here a year later planning so many things for jessicajadebeauty but here I am, loving every minute of it. I definitely want it to improve, I want it to keep growing. I’ve sat down to plan out what I want to achieve in the next year, then in 2018 I’m going to look back on this post and see how far I’ve come.
First things first, I want to be self-hosted. I’ve wanted to be self-hosted ever since I started blogging. I’m a perfectionist and this free platform just does not cut it for me, I’m way too limited in what I can do and I’m not happy about it at all. I’ve seen some gorgeous blogs out there using this platform but I just can’t seem to do it as good – at all. So, hopefully very soon, I will be writing post for my very own self-hosted blog – if I can handle the stress that is – I don’t know what I’m doing!
Reach another follow milestone
I have literally just reached 1000 followers and god it feels good. To know 1000 of you amazing people have clicked follow on my blog means so so much! Now I feel more like I can do it, more like I’m atleast doing one thing right and I’m going to keep putting all my time and effort into this small space on the internet to hopefully reach another milestone.
Hit some sort of milestone on Twitter
I’m rubbish at Twitter, I love having a nosey through at all and joining in the chats (when I remember) but I’m just rubbish. I’ve had Twitter like a year? And at this point, I’m just over 300 followers. I’d absolutely love to hit some sort of milestone so hopefully I’ll be able to put a bit more effort into it this year.
Hit 1,500 followers on Instagram
I already know I’m setting the mark pretty high, currently I have 683 followers, I at least hope to have reached 1000 by next year but who knows.. Instagram is becoming a bit impossible at the moment with all this algorithm nonsense and follow – unfollow accounts I just give in with it sometimes. I don’t particularly want to force people to follow me, so I kinda’ leave it but it would be nice to reach at least 1000. ah, we’ll see.
Start sharing on Pinterest, properly.
I’m obsessed with Pinterest, I’m always on it, but I just forget to pin my own things. I’m part of quite a few boards, I’ve even created one specifically for Beauty Bloggers Corner but I forget.. I get that engrossed in other pins and other blogs that I let it slip. (sorry members of BBC, I’ll get back into it, promise!) I’ve been saying for months that I’d create specific pictures for my blog pins, but like I said, I forget. This year I’m going to sort that out.
Get on with my projects
I have so many different things that I want to do, I mean the list is longer than my arm, but I’ve been a bit too busy to even think about starting anything. I did start a 2017 printable calendar last year and well, I just didn’t have the time. This year though, I definitely want to get on with a few on the things that I have planned.
