My Blogging Goals

Setting goals is so important. I have grown up setting goals for everything, whether it be goals for my eduation, goals for my rugby season or general life goals, I have always had a goal. I find that I function in life a lot better when I have something to work towards. 

The most important thing about setting goals is making them realistic and achievable, but also challenging yourself a little bit. There is no point setting a goal you're never going to achieve, but there also isn't a lot of  point in setting a goal you'll achieve easily. It's all about finding that perfect balance between the two. I've seen a few bloggers setting themselves goals for the end of the year, and it's something I've been meaning to do for a while but my blog took a backseat in life recently. I'm back, motivated like never before, and I've set some goals!

I know the end of the year isn't very far away at all, but these are short term goals. When the new year hits, I'm aiming to set myself some more long term goals, but these will do to keep me motivated until then.

Bloglovin | My aim for Bloglovin was to reach 1500 followers by the end of the year, but life took over and I haven't been blogging as much as I hoped to be, so I've lowered my target. I would love to reach 1400 followers by the end of the year. You can help me reach my goal by following me on Bloglovin here.

Youtube | Youtube is a platform I haven't fully started using yet, I uploaded a video a while ago, but since then I have privated it as I really wasn't happy with the content. By the time this post is live, I may have a video on my channel but I'm not sure yet. It's definitely something I want to venture into, but I want to be 100% happy with my videos before I upload. I currently have 53 subscribers, and my end of year goal is 100. You can subscribe to my youtube here.

Twitter | My favourite platform ever. I definitely enjoy using twitter more than anything, I am constantly on it. It is my most interactive platform, so I find it easier to gain followers quicker. My current follower count is 2400, and my goal for the end of the year is to reach 3000 followers. It's quite a high target, but after looking at my gain stats for Twitter over the past month or so I think I can reach it. You can follow me on Twitter here.

Instagram | My original platform. I had this Instagram way before I had my blog, and it's the reason I started my blog. I don't use it as much as I really should, I just don't enjoy it like I used to, as I've had it for so long a lot of my followers are inactive, and I've dropped nearly 5000 followers which was quite heartbreaking to be honest. I aim to use it a lot more, and get back to the active Instagram I used to be. My follower count currently stands at just over 11,000 followers, and my goal is 12,000. Again, a risky goal, but if I keep up with Instagram and stay active, it can easily be achieved. You can follow me on Instagram here.

Facebook | My least active platform, and the one I find the hardest to gain on. I currently stand on 71 likes, and I just find it impossible to get Facebook likes. This definitely means I don't use it like I should, I am hoping to promote it a bit more, and be active. Hopefully I can reach 100 likes before the end of the year. You can like my Facebook page here.

I hope I can reach all my blogging goals for the end of the year. It would be absolutely incredible to hit them all, so I can start the new year with fresh goals.

Have you set yourself any blogging goals?
