My blog has taken a real back seat the last 8 months or so, due to various reasons explained here, but to summarise, I was in final year of university, my mum was sick.. and unfortunately passed away, I started a new job plus other personal things going on in life. I’m sad that I haven’t given my little space on the internet the love it deserves, but I’m really looking forward to making it the best it can be this year. I managed to accomplish all of my 2019 goals so hopefully setting these 2020 blogging goals will help motivate me and improve my blog.
New blog theme
I currently have a pipdig theme which I unfortunately bought a few weeks before it was announced they were a security risk… So now I’m on the hunt for a new theme for this year! (recommendations would be greatly appreciated). A new theme always gives me a surge of motivation for my blog too.
Publish 20 blog posts
I have never stuck to a schedule when it comes to my posts, which isn’t a bother to me. However, my blog did have to take a back seat for the majority of 2019 due to a lot of personal reasons. So I’ve set a goal to publish at least 20 posts this year. That way, if I only get one out in a month or I miss a month, I can catch up by posting 3 or 4 another month.
Improve my Mobile Page speed
Bit of a technical goal here… SEO is something a lot of good bloggers already know about (If you don’t know what it is, and you have a website, go research it now!) but, I started a role last year as an SEO analyst, and since then my SEO knowledge has grown massively. This means I’m constantly picking apart my blog finding faults to fix. One of those issues, is how fast (or rather, slow) my blog loads on mobile. There are a number of things you can do to fix this (a new theme should help this) so this year I want to make some fixes on my site to improve the mobile page speed!
Reach 2k followers on Instagram
I think this one is laughable to be honest, we all know how rubbish Instagram is! However, I barely post as much as I used to so maybe if I aim to post at least twice a week and work on my Instagram game, I can get to 2K by the end of the year. If you wan’t to help me reach that goal, you can follow me on Instagram here.
