Setting goals for my blog

Today, I’m starting the free WordPress course on branding and growing your blog. I’ve just set myself some new goals which I’ve recorded in my BuJo but thought I would create a post identifying what they are and how I plan to go about achieving them so that you lot can have the chance to help and support me and hopefully cheer me on!

Goal 1: Establish a new weekly feature on my blog called Monday Matters and consistently post each week until at least the end of 2019

I generally schedule a blog post at the beginning of the week anyway so I thought it made sense to create a little more consistency. Hopefully, by writing my intention here it will help to keep myself accountable.

Goal 2: Publish a post at least twice a week for the next two months

This one is pretty self explanatory and with my new Monday feature, I just have one more to plan for each week.

Goal 3: Gain 20% more followers in the next three months

With consistent posting and improved branding which the free course should bring, hopefully this will happen! People have been really supportive so far and I’ve got some lovely comments and plenty of likes so I think other bloggers are enjoying my content.

Have you set any goals for your blog this month? If you have, I’d love to hear them and you can be sure I will cheer you on too! If you’re also doing the challenge you can find my post more easily if I tag it with #bloggingbranding apparently!

  1. Hey Laura,
    I am starting a new blog as well, and was wondering how your experience has been so far. Did you have to market your blog to get followers? I know quite a few people who spend a lot of money diverted to marketing. I’m keen to find out how you began the process.

    1. Hi, I have loved blogging so far and really enjoy the writing process. For me, running a blog is a creative outlet but watching my number of followers grow has been great too. The only money I’ve spent is on paying for my WordPress site but I have spent lots of time finding out about how things work and on researching and writing my post. I’ve found that regular posting has been helpful in gaining followers and reaching out to other bloggers who’s blogs interest me.


      1. That’s really good to hear Laura. I will definitely keep in touch. You have a really interesting blog. I really appreciate you reaching out and responding because most people don’t.

        Thank you again for sharing your experience.

    1. Hi again. When I click on your link it takes me to an old blog from 2018, not your new blog with more recent posts which include the goal setting post. I’ve found the new blog via Google search.
