I can’t speak so much for 2015 since I just started this blog in late November, as you may know this is my 2nd blog but this time around i’m a lot more dedicated to blogging. Since I’ve started I’ve managed a new post everyday as well as being active on social media.
I’ve been reading a lot of blogging advice lately, all of which makes so much sense, and in my opinion you need the time and dedication to make your blog work if you want to do it as a career in the long term. While a lot of bloggers blog for fun, which is good, it’s a great hobby to have and that’s what I did with my last blog. But there’s a small group of us that wouldn’t mind blogging as a career. In my eyes that will give me the freedom to work from where ever I please – I’d love to be my own boss some day. While I know it won’t happen over night, it might take a year, it might take 5 but I’m committed to putting in the work this time around. Everyone has a dream job right? and blogging full time is mine.
While this all might sound a bit OTT and serious, and I know a LOT of people don’t want to make careers out of their blog, I see nothing wrong with being honest with my intentions for my blog. In my day job I work with people everyday that have carved a career for themselves working from home and running a website, and I have a lot of admiration for them. So without rambling on too much, whether you think it’s too ambitious or not, here’s my blogging goals for 2016:
- Post a new article every day, and plan posts in advance
- Keep track of Stats
- Improve my photography skills
- Start generating some kind of income(even if it is just to cover the costs)
- Grow my social media/bloglovin following to over 2,000 followers on each channel
- Interact more with other bloggers
Even if you’re just blogging for fun, or any hobby for that case. It’s always good to set goals for yourself, so that you’re always challenging yourself.
Have you set any blogging goals for 2016?
