It’s the start of a new year and I wanted to share with you guys my goals. It’s always important to set goals so that you have some sort of a guideline of what to focus on and what to work towards. It shows that you have aspirations and that you want to see some sort of growth or success towards something. So let’s jump into my blog and social media goals for 2019!

Blog Goals and Social Media Goals
Buy a legitimate camera.
I currently have a Canon PowerShot camera that I have had for maybe 4 or 5 years. I absolutely love it, but I would like to get a DSLR camera where I can attach a lens to it and get more in depth, high quality photos.
Try to update blog at least 7 times a month or more. Have 52 new blog posts posted by the end of 2019.
I started this website in November and I was able to make 17 blog posts within 2 months which I am pretty proud of myself about. This is the most I have ever been consistent with blogging and I have started at least 5 other blogs in the past. This year I would like to aim towards having at least 52 blog posts posted on this website. However, my monthly goal is to post at least 7 times a month on Blogging and Living. Hopefully, I can keep up with it.
Create more helpful content.
I would like to focus on helping more people this year and creating content that is beneficial for people all over the world. I used to have this habit of talking about things or sharing things that only I cared about and no one else did, but this year I want to help more people instead of focusing on myself as much.
Create a decent media kit.
My social media stats are steadily increasing which I am extremely happy about. I hope to develop a legitimate media kit that looks appealing.
Sign up for hosting.
I actually plan on signing up for hosting this month. It will be my first time ever hosting a blog on my own. So I am excited about that!
Update my About page heavily.
My About Page doesn’t really have any flare or show anything too much interesting or captivating about this website. I want to change it and create a better page for my readers.
Buy a responsive website design template.
My website design is currently trash. I would like to buy a better one that looks gorgeous and presentable.
Use Tailwind tribes monthly.
I have been using Tailwind for my other website since March and I have been consistently getting 7000-17000 views from Pinterest because I schedule pins on Pinterest. I have also grown my Pinterest following substantially with using Tailwind. I started using Tailwind Tribes last month and I am not sure if it has truly increased my Pinterest viewership for this website, but I do believe there are benefits of using Tailwind Tribes monthly. I know Tailwind is beneficial for marketing my content on Pinterest in general. Even though I don’t have that many pins on Pinterest for this website, I was able to get 223 views for this website from Pinterest in 2 months while 339 of my traffic came from other places. As a new blog, I think that’s pretty great.
Use Tailwind to grow traffic for your website today! I highly recommend it.
Try out Pinterest Ads and Twitter ads.
I have been wanting to try out paying for ads on social media for awhile now. So I am definitely going to invest in it this year. I would like to run at least 7 Pinterest ads this year and maybe pay for Twitter ads at least once this year.
Grow my Pinterest to 11,000+ followers with at least 500 views a day coming from Pinterest.
I currently have 7,658 followers with 5.6 million monthly views on Pinterest which is pretty great. I would like to reach 11,000 followers this year. I would also like to increase my traffic from Pinterest to this website substantially.
Grow my Facebook page to 500 likes.
I barely did anything with my new Facebook page for this website, but realistically speaking I would like to grow my page to 500 likes this year.
Grow each of my Twitter pages to at least 3000 followers.
I was able to grow my Twitter following and engagement decently last year by following and engaging with others. I hope to increase this following by 50%. I currently have 1572 followers on my main Twitter account and 825 followers on my other account.
Grow my Instagram to at least 3000 followers.
I just started being truly active on Instagram last month. I started my Becoming Instagram Famous Series and I was able to go from like 40 something followers to 205 followers which is pretty great. I even receive at least 180+ likes a photo which is awesome. I hope to grow my Instagram a decent amount so that I will be able to make some money off of it to at least be able to pay off my student loans.
Run at least 2 Twitter giveaways per account.
I wanted to run a Twitter giveaway last year, but I never got around to it. So this year I would like to run at least 4 Twitter giveaways in total. I already have an idea on what I want to giveaway too.
Run at least 2 giveaways on my website.
I would like to run 2 giveaways on this website so hopefully I’ll be able to do it.
Pay at least 10 Instagram pages to shout me out on their page.
I have known about paying for shoutouts for awhile, but I want to try them myself to see how quickly they can grow my Instagram. I am hopeful of it working.
Post at least 30 videos on my Youtube channel.
I plan on starting a new Youtube channel this year and I am hoping to be somewhat consistent with it. I am aiming for maybe 2 videos a month, but we’ll see what happens.
Rank on the first page of Google for at least 5 blog posts.
I was able to rank on Google for my other website. The benefits of ranking on a first page on a Google search usually results in more traffic so I am going to reach this goal for sure with the keyword research that I have been doing.
Have a Domain Authority of at least 22 by the end of the year.
With my past blogs, I never really paid that much attention to domain authority or page authority. This year I want to really grow my domain authority and I want people to see value within my website.
Start blogging full time and make at least $3,500 a month from this blog alone.
To be honest, I would like to be blogging full time by May. I am putting it into the Universe that I will be blogging full time by May and making full time money to pay off all of my bills as well as have some money for savings, my blog, and retirement. With the plan that I have for this website, I know that it is going to happen for sure!
Create at least 2 beneficial digital products to sell on this website.
I really want to create some sort of digital product for this website, but I am not sure about what I should exactly create just yet. Hopefully I can create something awesome that other people can get a decent use out of. It may be an ebook or two.
