This was not the post I had planned for today but lately I’ve just been feeling like I can’t do anything. I’m sure it will go away soon but since I don’t want to post things I’m not proud of I decided not to post on Wednesday. So today instead of posting about my Netflix drama picks, I’m sharing my blog goals for the year because it’s something I’m still excited about. I’m linking up with Nina & Tiffany as a part of their awesome new Facebook group, The Blogging Elite! You should definitely join if you haven’t already!
ATTEND A BLOG CONFERENCE OR FIND A BUSINESS MENTOR
I’ve been wanting to go to one since last year. I’m not sure if I can afford it though if I want to move out of my parents house but I guess we’ll see if I can manage both. If I can’t attend a conference I want to find a mentor for my blog which can help me as much as a conference would.
CREATE A MEDIA KIT
I’ve been saying I’ll make one forever and it’s never happened so this year is the year!
CREATE BLOG BUSINESS CARDS
Another thing I’ve been saying I’ll do. I’d love to be able to include one when I’m sending a giveaway prize or anything else for my blog.
MAKE MY BLOG DESIGN MORE PROFESSIONAL
I’ve been working on this one lately but it still needs some adjusting (like my navbar). I’m a blog designer and if I want to impress all of you, I need to make sure my blog looks as amazing as I can make your blog look. I’ve also switched all my social media (minus my Facebook page) and my domain name to my full name!
POST MORE ABOUT DESIGN
I really want to start posting more about design, whether it’s tips on improving your design or showcasing some of my recent work. If there’s anything you’d like to see let me know!
ADJUST MY BLOG DESIGN PRICES
This also includes adding and adjusting the packages. I’ve also got a few unique ideas as add-ons or just separately. I don’t want to share too much because I don’t even know if they are good ideas or how they’ll even work. I know my pricing is super low compared to what it should be. Although I still want to be affordable to everyone, I need to make sure I’m making enough for the work I put into the design (especially since I have a degree in design).
MAKE STRONGER CONNECTIONS WITH OTHER BLOGGERS
I have a few bloggers that I talk to quite a lot but I want to turn some of those connections into people I consider my friends.
STICK TO MY BLOG SCHEDULE
I outlined all my posts for the month of January, the problem is I have barely stuck to the schedule.
GET MY SPONSORSHIPS BACK ON TRACK
I’ve neglected my sponsors in the pasts and I need to figure out how to stay on top of it and get them the promotion they deserve.
IMPROVE AVERAGE PAGE VIEWS AND COMMENTS
My page views went down a lot in 2014 and I really need to change that. I’m not sure exactly how I’ll do it yet but I have found a few different posts on it!
