My January Blog Goals

Spread the love

I’m going to try to do goals and monthly reviews this year, so there’s no better place to start than writing about my January blog goals.

I would really love to get more engagement and followers on my social media posts.

I’m going to keep working really hard on my social media engagement and following. I’ve just started using tailwind, which has been a lifesaver!

Another goal would be to work on my photography.

I’m hoping to do some more day trips and hikes throughout the summer. I’d like to take some really nice photos for my blog and Instagram. I would also like to get better at flatlays. To be honest, I have no idea how to do these. How do people create these beautiful flatlays anyway?

By the end of January, I would like to have:

Instagram: 1600 followers

Twitter: 1600 followers

Pinterest: 160 followers

Facebook: 100 followers

Blogging consistently.

This year I have been blogging on and off. I went through times when I wouldn’t blog at all. I would really like to get back into the habit of blogging! I’ve got a notebook for writing blog ideas, and will also schedule and draft posts on here.

My January Blog Goals

Something that is perhaps a longer-term goal is to get more traffic from my Pinterest!

What are some of your blog goals for January?

Have a read of my Long Term Blog Goals post!

    I need to improve my social media but I’m finding so hard. The regular blogging takes so much discipline and focus, I have done it for two years and I am now getting frustrated with posting every week. I have set a goal to be more laid back with my blog. I love reading posts about goals, it gives me ideas for what I would like to do.

      It is so hard trying to be consistent with blogging. I’ve been scheduling posts and dedicating one day a week to write, but then I get busy. I think being laid back with your blog is a good thing to do! It will make writing and blogging fun again and less like a chore!

    Awesome!
    Excited to watch your progress; I’m sure you’ll do brilliantly! 🙂
    For me personally, I’d just like to get back to blogging consistently. I’ve been blogging for a looong time (I published my first post in 2007, which seems crazy!), but have had so many breaks and blog changes along the way. I’ve just launched a new blog, and I’d really like to be a bit more consistent with my updates this time around. It’s too much fun to not do regularly!

      Thank you! Wow that is such a long time to be blogging! That’s great! I started my first blog back in 2013. So this is my second one. I’m loving this blog so much more though. I feel like since I’ve got a bit older I’m putting more thought into my posts. Consistency is something I struggle with now though, work keeps me busy! I’m going to check out your blog now. Thanks for your comment!!

    These are great goals!! I followed you on the social medias so hopefully that helps 😊 I really need to work on my photography more as well! 😭 I’ve been heavily editing my photos cause I never get to have good natural light to do the work for me 😔 engaging is hard cause you need to be in social media constantly but don’t forget to take breaks! 😁 Lovely goals! ❤️

      Thank you so much for following me on social media! Luckily I’m on holiday so I get to have natural light. When I’m working I always miss out on the light because I’m home too late. It is tricky engaging on social media. I try to schedule posts etc as often as I can but sometimes it’s not possible! Thank you so much for your comment ❤️

    First of all, Happy New Year!
    Secondly, good luck with your goals for this month, and I hope you meet your target followers numbers. 🙂
    Same here when it comes to consistent blogging. I’ve have been through multiple blog changes/shifts in the past 10 years and I’m still inconsistent when it comes to publishing posts.. Hehe! Maybe if I set a number of posts to publish in a month might help? What do you think?

      Thank you! I hope you have a Happy New Year too!

      I’m working really hard at this, and I hope with this good start I’ll be able to meet my targets. I don’t know how I’ll go when I get back to work though!
      I’m just trying to draft and schedule as many posts as I can for January, and I’ll try to get the February ones done before I head back to work. That could help. I’m trying to publish at least once or twice a week if I can!

    Good luck! Mine are pretty similar. I want to improve my photography and write more in advance so I have posts scheduled! Hazel x

      Thank you! I really enjoy photography, but I just don’t take time with it! I’m busy scheduling posts at the moment. 🙂
