I am actually surprising myself as I type this because when the year started I had decied I would not have any blogging goals for the year but rather I would just go with the flow. However after reading MakaitaRouge‘s 2016 blogging goals, I was inspired to set some goals for my blog.
Why am I setting goals?
- To give my blogging in 2016 direction.
- To challenge myself.
- For commitment’s sake.
- For accountability-once I put my goals out there then I have to achieve them right?
Towards the end of last year, I lacked consistency such that some readers even asked me if I was still blogging. This year I want to develop a proper blogging schedule that is not only easy for me but easy for the readers too. I will either be posting on Mondays or Wednesdays. I still need to work out which works better for me.
In order to achieve goal number one I have to be organised and that means writing a lot when I am inspired. My aim is to have at least 15 drafts at any given times. Right now I am sitting at 7 which means I have to catch up soon. This will help on those days when I lacking the motivation or inspiration to blog.
Create A Space For Other Voices.
One thing I really want to do on the blog this year is to create a space for other voices ie people with disabilities. After 2,5 years of blogging and just talking about myself, I think it is time to let other voices and stories be heard on the blog.
Since 2014 I have been wanting to feature certain people on the blog but procrastination has always been my biggest problem BUT now that I have put it out there, I have no choice but to do it.
Adding New Categories.
I love food and by that I mean I love eating and cooking. And I also love anything fitness related. I am currently toying with the idea of adding a new Food and Fitness category where I document my weight loss journey. I am still thinking about this, it’s not yet a blog so please don’t hold me to it.
Yes that’s it! Those are my blogging goals for 2016 very simple and easy to achieve,
Do you have any blogging goals for the year? How are going to achieve them?
