5 blogging goals for 2017

Posted by

Yes, I am sure most of your favourite blogs have also been doing a ‘What are my goals’ posts and here’s mine….I never said I was original.

I havent blogged for a while and that’s one of the things I plan on changing in 2017. So let’s get to it, these are my blogging goals for the next year.

  1. Blog more.
    When I worked in an office it was so easy to blog. I could just open up wordpress and spill my ideas straight onto this site. Then I was at home all day with the kids and just couldn’t find the time. Now I have a job I find even less time and once I get home and the kids are in bed, I just want to curl up on the sofa and relax. Well, somethings got to change. Hopefully you will see an increase in productivity here at dadwhoblogs.
  2. Blog about movies.
    I have had this idea in my head for a while. Blogging is supposed to be something passionate and you should blog about things your are passionate about, well I am passionate about movies. I thought about creating a new blog away from dadwhoblogs, but I have had this corner of the web for 5 years now and I am not quite ready to move out.
  3. Become an Instagram master.
    There’s many social networks I have neglected over the last few years especially where blogging is concerned. My facebook page is empty, Google Plus is more like Google minus, my instagram is blurry and I didn’t even register for ‘elo’, if that’s what it was even called? So I currently have 262 followers and by the end of 2017 I want my pictures to be better and my follower count to 500. Big ask but you shoot for the stars, you just might hit the moon. Feel free to help me on my way and give me a follow on over on Instagram.
  4. Comment more.
    Although I read posts I don’t always leave a comment. I know this is a bit of a blogging ‘no no’, but in most cases, much like blogging itself, I have found sometimes that I am not always sure my comment would help or add to the post, so I don’t leave it. That’s going to change.
  5. Follow more.
    I love twitter. It’s my weapon of choice where social media is concerned and until I do number 3 above, it will be for a while. I’m proud of my follower count because its genuine and not simply follow for follow which you find a lot these days. In 2017 I plan on following lots more people. My only 2 conditions are that they are relevant and chatty, so if you know of anyone or you are somebody who I should be following shout at me!!

So there you have it. my blogging goals for this year. If you liked this post, check out my 5 life goals for 2017.

  1. Good luck with your goals – I’ll be looking forward to your film posts!
    Have helped out as much as I can with no 3 by giving you an insta-follow 😀

  2. I’ve got similar goals myself. However, I’ve gone for a percentage growth of followers (10%) to keep it an ever moving target. Also, more regular posts. I tend to run out of ideas so I’m currently thinking up a couple of series that I could use to keep a regular flow.
