Wow, the end of 2017 is here. I can hardly believe it! At the beginning of the year I made blogging goals for my blog for 2017. Now I’m back to let you know how I got on, and what I did and didn’t achieve.
Blogging goals for 2017 – the results!
Boost my social media – Bit failure here!
I wanted to boost my Twitter to 10,000 followers. At the time of writing this post, I still need around 600 followers. Failed…! Always tomorrow for a miracle to occur!
Also, I wanted to boost my Facebook to 7,500 likes. Failed too. Oops. This was just really unrealistic. To be honest I struggled really with Facebook. I only gained maybe 500 followers all year. I think this is because a number of my followers were just compers who have cut back on the pages they follow. So while I’ve gained a couple of thousand followers I’ve lost 1,500 odd too.
I wanted to boost my Instagram to 3,500 followers. Failed too. Well this is a great start isn’t it..! I just didn’t love Instagram much this year. I’ve been getting back into it the last few months but it was a bit late to hit 3,500 I think!
Increase my DA
I wanted to get my DA to 35. Achieved. It is currently 39. This means that I get lots of backlinks from other websites and my links are seen as being fairly trustworthy.
Hit 750 blog posts
Well, that was pretty easy… Even though I deleted some old dire content. Achieved. Hoping to continue the same sort of posts next year. Parenting, lifestyle, money, everything that I personally love to talk about!
Double my traffic
When I had a look at the beginning of December I was at a 98.77% increase on last year, so I’ve beaten it by the time this goes live! Woohoo! I’m so pleased! Achieved!
2017 has been a fantastic year for my family, my blog and my finances. I’m really motivated for 2018 now and looking forward to getting started on my next year’s aims! Check back in a few days if you want to read those.
Happy New Year to you!
