I know it’s already halfway through the year but I only started posting a few weeks ago so I decided I may as well make a post detailing my goals for the upcoming year. I hope you guys don’t mind and I would love to hear how you’re getting along with your own blogging goals.
1. Page views / Visitors / Followers
The stats don’t lie and I’m hoping to get at-least 5,000 views this year, a couple hundred followers and lots of visitors. I know that sounds very ambitious but I got about 4,000 views last year on my previous blog so I’m aiming a bit higher.
2. Make a ton of friends!
I’ve already been chatting with a lot of other cool book bloggers on Twitter and it’s been fun getting to know them. So I definitely want to keep doing that and making friends. You can find me on twitter @inkylove16 so please come say hi! 🙂
3. Review copies
So after my ARC requesting frenzy last time, I decided to start requesting only books that I wanted. Unfortunately, that means there’s 28 pending requests on Netgalley! But don’t worry, I’ve got it all planned out! And hey, it’s summer so I don’t have school, meaning I have more time to read. I have about 10 review copies waiting to be read and they’re all books I was dying to get my hands on.
4. HAVE FUN and stop stressing
I can’t help occasionally (okay more often than not) worrying how people will take my blog posts. The blogging community is pretty awesome as a whole but sometimes I worry that I’ll be too controversial and attract unwanted attention. Then again, that might just help boost my views and get me to that 5,000 views goal.
5. Be interesting!
While I love reading book reviews, I don’t stay for long on a blog that only has book reviews. As a result, I want to write and publish an equal amount of feature posts and book reviews every week (which I’m already doing) but I’m going to keep prioritizing this because every time I get lazy, the discussion posts and more original features are the first to go..
What are your blogging goals for 2015 and which of them have you accomplished so far? Are they ongoing like mine?
