When it comes to making goals, the first category I always go to is blogging. Not only is it my career, but blogging really is my life. So of course I am always looking to improve in that area. I think my main goal for 2015 is expansion. I really want to not only expand my reach and audience, but also expand to offer new content in different ways. In short, my blogging goals are as follows:
1. Get to 50K followers on Instagram.
Last year, my goal was to get to 10K and now I’m at 17K. Really hoping I can do it! There’s definitely a shift to microblogging and Instagram is king. It’s by far the best social media platform for bloggers.
2. Start making videos!
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while, but definitely requires some major commitment. YouTube is such a great way to reach a new audience, but it has to be done right. I’ve decided to do my research and start this new method of content creation in 2015. P.S. I’m totally open to video ideas!
3. Reply to all comments.
I’ve always made it a point to reply to all the comments I get here on my blog, but I’ve really been slacking lately. My 2015 goals is the perfect reminder I need.
4. Make $X in one month.
While I find it tacky to talk exact numbers, I do have a specific dollar amount in mind that I want to reach this year. I’m 75% there so as long as I keep growing, I think I’ve got this!
Making goals/resolutions is easy, but I think the most important thing to recognize is how we plan to reach those goals. As Johnny and I sat in bed on new year’s eve and made a list of goals, we made sure to write down what we’re going to do to achieve each one. A goal isn’t much without a plan to back it up.
What are your 2015 blogging goals?
