2016 wasn't particularly a great one for me and my blog. I felt uninspired, partly because of a lot of personal life chaos and partly because I hated my blog design and blogging with Blogger. Well, that chaos has come and gone, and I've changed my whole blog design and hosting. You'll notice I also got a domain name! I won't lie, those changes took time and money, but I don't mind spending money on something that I love and see as worthwhile. And I truly love blogging. So this year, the overall goal is to grow the blog, but I'll be getting into more details down below!
01. More lifestyle posts
I love the world of beauty and makeup, but I don't want to be limited to talking about just that. I want to talk about health and wellness, and so much more. So this year, I'll be sharing more lifestyle posts, but you'll still see a lot of beauty-centric content. Last year, I really got into a good, health-fitness routine and I want to expand on that this year and share it.
I've also been thinking about dabbling into fashion posts, but that's a whole other thing I'll have to think about when it's actually warmer out. Right now, fashion posts are out of the question because I'm wearing the same snow coat and snow boots for about 4 months. Not much I can do there!
02. Be engaged on social media
So, last year I joined Instagram.. and didn't do much with it. I kept forgetting about it and hardly posted anything. But recently, I've been really into Instagram and Insta Stories. My goal for this year is to concentrate on growing my Instagram by posting consistently and interacting more with the blogging and beauty community. I also want to participate on some Twitter chats. If you are interested in following me on any social media, the links are in the sidebar!
03. Consistent posting
I'm a terrible blogger. I don't know if I can commit to a specific schedule, but my aim is to post AT LEAST twice a week. Right now, I've caught the blogging bug and I've got a million and one ideas for posts, so there'll probably be about 3 posts a week. But you get the idea. Consistent posting.
04. Include more of "me" on my blog
Hopefully I can do this through the increase in lifestyle posts, but overall, I want to carve more of my personality into my blog as it's currently deficient in that area. I don't know why, but it's something I struggled with doing. And I don't know any clear cut way to do it, so I'll just figure out a way!
So those are my goals! I am usually wary of making "resolutions" as they usually fall through, but I think these goals are quite achievable, especially since I do really care about my blog. If you notice me slacking off, please feel free to scold me.
What are some of your goals for 2017?
