How we're even talking about 2017 is beyond me but there we go.
I started my blog in it's current persona in January 2016 and I'm pretty overwhelmed when I start thinking about what I've achieved already but as always, I'm looking on to the next thing.
I find it pretty difficult to set goals, I set some for my blog in June this year and I hit them about 2 months later, not quite anticipating the speed at which my blog would grow.
For 2017 I am biting the bullet and based on the years worth of growth I now have under my belt, I am setting goals for the next 365 days of twentysomethingmeltdown.
- Hit 500K all time pageviews.
- Get 3000 Twitter followers.
- Get 1500 Instagram followers.
- Get 10K Pinterest followers.
- Secure more meaningful brand collabs.
- Take part in at least one Twitter chat a week.
- Organise #BloggerPitP2.
- Do another fortnight of guest blogs.
- Create a Christmas challenge.
- Host a Twitter chat.
As always, I think it's best to set yourself challenging but achievable goals so you push yourself but don't get disappointed when you've set yourself 1 million page views in 6 months and don't hit it.
I think I've got a reasonable chance of hitting my pageviews and Twitter goals as I'm on 200K pageviews and nearly 3K Twitter as it is. Instagram and Pinterest are a bit more of a challenge because they're much less reliable to build a following on, especially Insta these days.
I reeeeally need to take part in more chats to keep up with my blogging pals and I never say yes to hosting because I feel like I can't commit to a date because omfg what if I let someone down but this year I am actually going to sit down to do one.
Other than that I want to do a bit more with the old blog, I want a redesign in January and I want to create something challenging for Christmas next year that isn't Blogmas.
Now let's get cracking with picnic ideas......
