An Update On My Blogging Goals for 2018!

At the beginning of the year, I set myself a list of blogging goals that I want to achieve by the end of the year. Since we are near enough half way through the year, I thought I'd do an update to assess how well I'm getting on...or not so as the case may be.

I am really pleased with how well I've done on my first goal. I've been focusing on connecting and interacting more on Bloglovin this year by liking and saving other people's posts. I'm overjoyed to see that I've grown on this platform as I felt at one point that no one used it anymore.

Instagram Followers-Was at: 1189, By The End Of The Year: 1250, Now at: 1315
Instagram, well that says it all really! Considering it feels like my following on there has been very stagnant, I mean it doesn't feel like it has increased in the slightest but it has. It is surprising to see!

DA Improved-Was at: 16, By The End Of The Year: 20, Now at: 24
I'm overjoyed with the improvement in my DA, I've been trying to fix all of my broken links for a while now as well as learning more about search descriptions. I'm glad it's all paying off. If you have any more tips on how to improve it do let me know. 

Reach 200K View On My Blog

I'm slightly annoyed at myself for not jotting down the number I was on when I published that post as I can't see how far I've come. I'm quite a long way away from this goal and I think it's down to me not scheduling tweets every day anymore, it has had quite a big impact.

Continue Posting Once a Week
This is one so far that I haven't failed at. I did miss one upload but I had already posted that week so it was a bonus blog post anyway so I'm not too fussed about that. I now manage my posts on my excel spreadsheet and I've found it really helpful.

Connections With Brands
Already this year I've been able to work with some amazing brands and I've even completed a sponsored post for the first time in ages. It is such a great feeling!

Form More Blogger Friendships
I've grown closer to a few bloggers this year, to the point where we can talk about anything from blogging to cleaning products! It's so warming and such a positive to the community we are all in.

Did you set any goals for yourself at the start of the year and do you think these are achievable for me? Thanks for reading.
