My Blogging Goals for 2016

This year I wasn’t very active on my blog or on my social media. The odd tweet, a few blog posts and some more pictures on Instagram. My social media engagement must have shrunk by 75% compared to the year before. Next year, I want to make more of an effort again and blog more regularly. While I was in Cologne, there wasn’t much I could blog about. I didn’t do much. My travels were mainly work related and rather boring and I didn’t want to constantly blog about how awful I felt. Of course it shows on my blog, it didn’t grow at all.
I am moving soon and I am much more optimistic, I also have more time to blog. 

1. Use Pinterest more 

don’t really use Pinterest for my blog at the moment, but it seems to come in every second blogger chat and as I really like Pinterest, I want to start using it for my blog in 2016. 


2. Schedule blog posts and share on social media

This year I haven’t blogged much and I haven’t shared my posts much on social media either. My posted blog posts get shared once by Bloglovin on Twitter 

3. Buy a new camera and take more pictures

I am glad Unsplash exists and I could use a lot of pictures without worrying about licenses and copyright this year. I only shared some of my personal pictures, but in 2016 I want to blog more and share more of my pictures. 

4. Blog at least 3 times a week

I used to publish a blog post every day in my best blogging times, but in 2015 I only published 40 blog posts, including this one. 

5. Engage more with fellow bloggers

I have a few blogging friends, but I didn’t interact with them as much as I wanted to in 2015. In 2016 I want to keep updated on their lives and also find some more amazing blogs to read. 

6. Have more confidence

I always struggled with my weight, but from mid 2014 until now I have gained nearly four stone. I am very conscious about posting pictures of me online, but in 2016 I want to be more body positive and share more of me

7. Improve my stats

Of course blogging shouldn’t be about the amount of followers one has and how many people read your posts. However, being a little bit ambitious can’t be wrong and I just want a plus next year. I don’t have particular goals, but this year I had a huge minus.

    Good luck with your resolutions/goals for 2016. My resolution was not to make any lol! If I could wish for something though it would be for more bloggers to talk to me. Sometimes feels a bit, 'clicky', to me πŸ™ x
