Blogging Goals For 2017

It's the beginning of the year, and what a crazy year it was! I went from having no job, to one shitty job, to one slightly less shitty job in 2015, to two jobs last year! All of that on top of blogging. My crazy work schedule is my excuse for why I didn't really get a lot accomplished this year. And frankly I don't see my schedule changing for the foreseeable future. That's why I have to stop using work as an excuse and get my ass in gear! Let's talk about goals.

❉ This year I plan to vamp up my social media presence. I have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even SnapChat and I rarely use any of them. I'm going to try to change that.

❉ I also want to see if I can start getting three posts a week, instead of just two. I need to get back to planning out posts and scheduling them. I was doing pretty well with that the beginning of the year and I don't know why I stopped.

❉ I want to start blogging about different things. Right now this blog is just a jumble of random things. It will still not be one specific niche, but I want to add things and go back to posting subscription boxes. So maybe I need four posts a week!

❉ I want to see if I can make money from this blog. This year I didn't even attempt it. I read a lot, and I told myself that I wasn't ready to push it. I think by the end of 2017 I want to make something, even if it's just a few dollars.

I'm hoping to have a few changes in 2017 that will either derail me or help me. And if it helps me in one area, it might derail me in another. I don't want to go into specifics yet, but there are a handful of things I'd like to see change this year.

These aren't too specific, but I actually like that. I find myself failing if I make too specific a goal. So, I'm going to do my best.

What are your goals for the new year? Let's chat!
