Blogging Goals for 2016.



Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating. It's back to reality today for most of you, sadly I've been back at work since boxing day. I hope Monday isn't too rough on you all. 
The sad truth is, when I look back at 2015 I don't see the same excitement, the same pride in myself that I see others experiencing. Though this could be due to pure lack of enthusiasm lately. The truth is, 2015 was great to me in many ways. I experienced things I never experienced before. I travelled, they may have one been short distances...but I travelled. I became employed in a practically full time job and have managed to fend for myself in a way that I haven't managed before, I've equally treated myself too.

All personal matters aside, I've also neglected my blog this year. I reached 1000 followers, I hosted my first giveaway. I travelled to many places to meet new people. I made the best friends and even purchased my own domain name. But something holds me back every time, nothing's perfect about my blog and some times I can't let go of that. I've been writing this blog for almost 3 years now and I feel that I'm still at square one. I've decided to concentrate on my blog in the new year, finally take the time I feel it deserves and with that; I'm going to write some goals I hope to achieve. 

• Reach 2,000 Followers
•  Double my daily views 
•  Get more involved with other bloggers & take the time to get to know more people. 
• Reply promptly and to every comment I receive
• Re-design and re-vamp my layout
•  Become comfortable in sharing my blog more with friends & family
• Post at least once a week

Only a little post for today, welcoming 2016 short and sweet. I'm going to take things slow for now, get my head round everything I want to achieve. Consider all the changes, first step is to get my layout back to a place where I like.

Any suggestions, comments and everything like that, I'd really appreciate.



  1. They sound like some great goals that are definitely achievable! I'm hoping I can share my blog with friends and family too, but I always feel a little embarrassed!

  2. Good luck with all your blogging goals for this year! I don't have the same excitement I see in a lot of blog posts around at the moment either, but remember people are showing their highlight reels and sometimes make things sound better than they were. The important thing is, you're still positive and making the most of the fresh start of the new year :)

  8. I hope you're pleased to know that you're not the only one neglecting your blog this year! I was terrible but I hope to make up for that in 2016. This is a great post and it's good to see that you have goals that are achievable. We share similar blog goals although my post is yet to go up. Therefore, I wish you all the best with them! We both plan to share or blogs with friends and family so I shall have my fingers crossed that we both recurve support. Happy New Year! x

  9. Love your blogging goals. It took me to nearly a year into blogging before I told my parents that I had a blog and that was only because my mum wondered why I was being sent stuff.

  10. Good luck with your goals this year. I'm hoping to dedicate more time to blogging in 2016 too. One of my main goals is to get my own domain. Do you have any tips? I want to find out a bit about it first, I want to make the transition as seamless as possible.

    Happy New Year

  11. Good luck with these goals - you can do it!
    Don't beat yourself up about last year though, you still made a lot of progress and you should be proud of that.
