Blogging goals for 2017 – what I want to achieve

I’m really excited for 2017. My blog has gone so much in the last year. Traffic to my website has tripled in the past year and the last few months of 2016 were amazing for me. I was featured by the BBC News website, I was on BBC Radio and so many other amazing things happened for me. As I’m someone who loves to hold themselves accountable in life I want to set my Blogging goals for 2017.

Blogging goals for 2017

Boost my social media

I want to boost my social media this year. Social media isn’t something that I used to focus on. I figured that these things would build with time. Now I’m really pleased with how well things have gone but I want to see what I can achieve when I put some effort in.

I want to boost my Twitter to 10,000 followers.

Also, I want to boost my Facebook to 7,500 likes.

I want to boost my Instagram to 3,500 followers.

I’m thinking these are all pretty big aims, however, I am motivated!

Increase my DA

I want to boost my DA to 35+. This shouldn’t be too difficult for me now. I’ve actually got to 34 now, because of the most recent update. This was an increase of 6 points, from 28. I was really pleased with this and hope that things will continue to grow for in 2017.

Make it into the top 250 on Tots100

I’m sitting at 408 now. I have risen from 949 (my first entry into the charts) to 408. I’m really enjoying looking at the updates of the Tots100 ranking each month. There are some amazing bloggers featured on the Tots100 and I want to see if I can make it into the top 250. I am mostly going to be working on this just by doing what I do now. I will be consistently posting, engaging with other bloggers and enjoying blogging as I do now.

Hit 750 blog posts

Now I think that this should be relatively easy because I love writing. I feel like I am constantly writing down new ideas for blog content. Since having my daughter I’ve been SO busy and these last few months back working I’ve got really motivated. This year I’ll be blogging about parenting, lifestyle, all things related to money and other topics also.

Double my traffic

Based on 2016 I should be able to hit this and maybe even exceed it – with hard work! I’m hoping to double my sessions, views AND unique users. This is something that I’m going to do by working on great SEO, also using social media more. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the year brings for me.

These are my Blogging goals for 2017 and as a result I’m really looking forward to this year. I think the start of a year is probably a great time to get yourself motivated for the year ahead. I’m setting out my goals for my blog, my life and everything in between over the coming days. There is nothing quite like getting organised and I also love a nice goal!

      Thank you so much! We all have to start somewhere 🙂 You get out what you put in (mostly). I’m not someone who has viral posts really so I just have to work at it.

    Great goals. I haven’t published mine, but didn’t put in my social media increases that I would love. I might need to add them in 🙂
