Summer Blogging Goals

Friday, 19 June 2015

Over the past month, I've been thinking about my blog a lot. Probably too much to be honest. I don't take my blog too seriously. It's very much just a hobby for me but still I'd like to make it better and try harder overall. To do this, I've decided to set myself some blogging goals for the summer. They aren't significant, but I'm excited to challenge myself and see what I can achieve over the next few months. 

A blog redesign
Top of my list is to redesign my blog. This is something I have been thinking about for a while and I've finally decided to do it. My current template is fine, but I'm just not in love with it and it's a little dull and uninspiring. Initially, I was going to attempt to build my own but I realised it would probably take me months so I've decided to go with a designer. And excitedly I've already put the putsch in motion for this one. So in the next few weeks, I'll have a lovely newly designed blog to unveil.

Improve my content
I'm sure this is something every blogger wants to do and I do too! For the last few months, I've really tried to up my blogging game and I have improved so much but I still feel like I'm not where I want to be just yet. My photography isn't consistent and my writing is a bit of an afterthought. My hope is to be more original, creative and hopefully just be more satisfied with what I'm putting out.

Stick to a schedule
Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday is my schedule but do I stick to that? No! This is going up on a Friday! And I took the blog photo at two minutes before I posted this post at work! Increasingly, I've been letting my schedule slide. I use to be so good about it, but it's gone a little awry. From now on I'm going to be strict with myself, set aside time on Saturday morning for blogging and stop being such a bad planner!

Get into skincare
My main content is makeup based. I love makeup. It's what I find most interesting and fun to write and read about. However, I'm always envious of girls who have amazing knowledge of skincare and invest in good products. I want to be one of those girls! Throughout the summer, I'm going to attempt to learn more about skincare and dedicate more of my posts to it. Funnily enough, this one is probably the least likely to succeed because I love buying pink lipsticks and I can't image being that excited about eyecream!

Be more friendly
It's only recently that I noticed how much of a lone wolf I've been in the blogging world. I never really chatted or reached out to other bloggers. But after getting to know a few bloggers, I realised how nice it is to talk to them and have a familiar face continuously commenting back and forth on each others blogs. I'd like more of that! I plan on trying to find new, amazing blogs and hopefully get to know other girls a bit better.

Do you have any blogging goals or even life goals for the summer? I'd love to know what you guys want to achieve over the next few months.
