Happy New Year everyone! 

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and had a wonderful time at Christmas and New Year’s, I know I did! I spent it with the people I love most, seeing my child happy because the festive spirit was in all of us and we done everything possible to give him an amazing Christmas full of joyful. 
I really did enjoy this Christmas (for once it wasn't stressful) But after an amazing Christmas and New Year’s I got to thinking, what do I want to accomplish in 2016 with my blog? What direction do I want it to go in? What goals will I set myself this time round and will I achieve them all? 

I thought it fitting after all these thoughts and ideas rushing through my head to do a post on my Blogging Goals for 2016. I thought long and hard about what exactly it is I want to achieve, where do I want my blog to go and what is achievable. Personally I enjoy having my goals written down in black and white because it helps me to stick to my goals, it's sort of making them physical in a way if that makes scene?

Anyway, let's get onto my blogging goals for 2016.

1: Set out a new schedule for blog posts.

Right now I don't have much of a schedule for my blog, I am sort of posting when and if I feel like it, so I feel maybe having a set schedule may help me to take my blog to new heights. 

2: Attend more events I'm invited to.

I have been lucky enough to be invited to a few blogging events in Glasgow but sometimes I feel nervous or anxious about going. This year I want to get over that fear and start taking advantage of these opportunities.

3: Reach out to more bloggers.

I really want to start engaging with more bloggers on twitter, sometimes I feel out of my depth and like a fish out of water but I know I have to start pushing myself out of my comfort zone if I want my blog to grow.

4: Participate in more Linkups.

I have found that linkups are a great way to find new blog to read and drive traffic to my blog, so this year I want to participate in more.

5: Introduce a new series (Hint: It Includes my Friends)

I have been toying with the idea of doing a new series on the blog, I don't want to say too much but I do want to introduce it. 

6: Try more places to eat in Glasgow for blogging.

I love reviewing places in Glasgow to eat out, this year I want to start going to more cafes, restaurants, bars and more, and feature them on the blog.

7: Use my Camera more.

I have a great camera and it's about time I started to use it! this year the plan is to get out and and about more with it to take pictures for the blog.

8: Stay organised.

Sometimes I really don't feel organised when it comes to my blog, I am a mess with trying to keep everything in order which is a big shock to me as I am a very organised person, so this year I have gotten myself a blogging notebook to keep track of posts and such.

9: Keep on top of blog maintenance.

I really need to keep on top of my blog maintenance, I haven't gotten into the groove of it yet so I am thinking of ways that I can set out a schedule to make it a little easier.

10: Put more effort into social media. 

I really need to put more effort into my social media, I feel like I am at a bit of a loss with it and I have no clear direction, so the plan is to work on each platform and really get stuck in.

And that's my blogging goals for 2016! Here's hoping that I can keep on top of them and achieve them all, maybe one day I could have over 10k followers if I work hard!

  1. I love that you haven't included the typical "I want to reach x followers on y" goals. It's great that your goals are focused on the stuff that you can actually influence and do instead of having luck to reach a certain number.
    I'm looking forward to your blogging series. :)

    1. Thank you! I didn't want to set goals that I know I'm not putting my all into, like trying to get so many followers etc... I want people to follow me because they like my blog, not because I'm campaigning for them. Thanks sweetie! I'm hoping it comes together very soon! Xo
