Blog Goals Revisited - 6 Months On


I can't believe its June already! I've been blogging for almost a year and it was 6 months ago since I did my 2017 blog goals and resolutions so I thought I'd look back and see where I'm up to with them.

I made four blog goals/resolutions to take photos in bulk, learn to take better photos, aim to post 2-3 times a week and become more involved in social media.

1. To take photos in bulk - Due to the variety of weather and timing I've not been able to do this. I managed to take quite a few bulk pictures around Easter but I've been too busy lately. Although now its summer I'm hoping to take a lot! As I now have a lot more free time in the summer I really want to use it for blogging. 

2. Learn to take better photos - I'm still working on this but I'm learning about more editing software thats out there. I'm loving Canva! I made my blog header, media kit and the picture for this post using it, its so user friendly so I will definitely be using it more this year. I do want to learn more about my camera settings too.

3. Aim to post 2-3 times a week every week - Other than taking photos in bulk, I think this is the one I'm failing on most at the moment. I'm still doing 2 posts a week but I do find that to be more than enough due to time. But its also due to lack of post ideas, photos or lack of money to buy new products to review. Maybe over the summer I'll be able to achieve 3 posts a week but at the moment I'm happy with 2 posts a week.

4. Become more involved on social media - I'd only used Bloglovin and Pinterest last year but I'm now on Instagram and Twitter. I'm really enjoying social media and I genuinely feel its allowed me to venture into new opportunities.

Do you have goals you want to achieve?

  1. This is a great post with great goals. One of my goals this year is to be more consistent in blogging, used to have a blog long time ago but never liked the content I produce. I feel that now i am in a better state of mind to do so.

  4. These are great tips for blogging. It is important to get involved in social media and to post more frequent. With everyone being busy or traveling, it can be a bit more difficult but it is important. :)

  5. Mostly to just push myself, I feel there is always room for improvement. I definitely think you are on the right track! I cannot believe it is June already xxx

  6. Sounds like you're doing well. For a long time, I hoped for 3 posts up also; just hasn't been possible. Sigh. Push harder, I suppose.

  7. These sound like great goals! I have the same problem with the weather, and being pregnant doesn't help... so we have started taking more pictures in bulk.

  9. These are great goals and it sounds like you are doing really well with them :) I will have to take a look at Canva as your header and the photo in this post are so pretty and this is definitely an area that I need to improve it. I also need to get back on it with social media as I have been really bad at posting recently. Keep up the good work and congrats on your one year blogging anniversary :) x
