Blogging achievements & 2017 goals

I know it is almost February and some might think it is too late to set new years resolutions. To my defence this is not really a 2017 resolutions post! I want to remember all the tiny blogging milestones and set goals to reach in 2017.

There is something about writing your goals down that makes them seem attainable and realistic.

I’m a fairly new blogger; I started this blog in May 2016 (8 months ago). I went to the blogging world not knowing what to expect. Fortunately it gave me the chance to come across some lovely blogs and blogging communities from all over the world.


Blog achievement

 2017 blogging goals

  • Consistency- I usually aim to post once or twice a week, I mainly write and edit my blogpost whenever I have free time but in 2017 I want to be more organised.
  • Self-hosting- this has been on my mind for a while I hope sometime in 2017 that I will self-host my blog. I’m not very tech savvy, self-hosting comes with a lot of things I’m not familiar with such as DA and Yoast (so fingers crossed!).
  • Social media followers- I want to increase my followers in these main platforms Instagram, new Facebook page and twitter. I want about 1k- 2k by the end of 2017 (I hope that is not wishful thinking)
  • Simply a Mama followers- I want to hopefully double my blog followers.
  • Start a Youtube channel- I’m extremely shy but I want to enter the world of Youtube sometime in 2017.
  • Collaborations and guest posts- to be able to be featured in other blogs again in 2017 would be awesome.
  • Create a tag/ series- for other bloggers and my readers to be featured on my blog.

I hope that I will be able to achieve all or some of my blogging goals in 2017.

      I agree with you, twitter seems to be much easier to grow than other social media platforms for some reason and all the bloggers there are so lovely.
      I already like your Facebook page good luck growing it.
      Thanks for commenting xx

    Good luck with all your blogging goals and well done on your achievements so far. The goals sound very achievable. There are lots of posts out there to help guide you through self-hosting if you do take the plunge. Social media-wise I’ve found Facebook to be the trickiest to grow so far but fingers crossed you reach your target number of followers this year. I’ve followed you on your social media too! 🙂

    You are doing way better than I ever did at 8 months. Back when I started, I had no idea about reciprocal blog followings, how to use Twitter to grow traffic, connect via linkys and tags, and so on. I have had my current blog since 2014 and got more actively involved around the same time as you last year and I have so much to learn.
    I did go self-hosting earlier this year. One of the best decisions I ever made with regard to my blog. Yes, it seems insanely challenging because I am not a techie either but seriously, the customer service with everybody involved is really great. I am really loving the learning process. You won’t regret it. Do it. #globalblogging
