Towards the end of this year I have taken more interest in my little blog. Blogging has captured such lovely memories that I would love to continue in 2017.
2016 was such a weird year for me, I can’t quite work out whether I’ll be glad to see the back of it. It saw my beautifully brave Nanna finally find peace, our lovely Baby make us a proud family of four and I achieved most of my goals that to be quite honest I had forgotten about!
9 Things You Forget About Life With A Newborn was my most popular post of the year!
My end of year stats are:
I have had over 3,000 visitors to my blog and 6,000+ page views. My DA is currently 24 and my Tots score is under 1,000. They are not the best stats but they make me happy. My aim for 2017 is to have an even bigger and even better year!
By the end of 2017 I would like to achieve:
- a DA of 35
- 500 facebook likes
- 3,000 twitter followers
- 2,000 followers on Instagram
- 1,000 pageviews a month!
This may seem very stats orientated and I try not to get too caught up with them but I hope to look back at the end of 2017 and see an improvement. I think these are pretty achievable! Another of my goals or rather aims is to create a Media Kit but I’m waiting until my stats level out a little.
In 2017 I would also like to:
- learn more about photography and improve my photos
- possibly dabble in a bit of youtube but we will see
- set up and use my Bloglovin’ and reach 100 followers
- learn how to use Pinterest and grow my following
- have a full and successful year of #WhatMyKidDid and do Lauren proud!
I have become so much more involved in the blogging community within 2016. I hope 2017 will be the year I become a fully pledged member and maybe even make some friends? But who knows what 2017 has in store for me. Only time will tell!
What are your blogging goals of 2017 and what has been your biggest achievement of 2016?
