MY BLOGGING GOALS FOR 2017 & A NEW POST-SCHEDULE


New year, new groove huh? 

It's 2017! Oh my goodness, I think I haven't still survived from the fact that a year just changed. Or well, it's probably easier to handle after spending the night sober and waking up without a hangover today morning. Gosh, this is so weird! And all that weird stuff is not going to end here. 
For 2017, I've decided to put daily blogging for a break. I've been thinking about this change for a couple of months now. As you might know, I'm a realist person. I know I can't handle a baby and daily blogging at the same time, so I decided to cut off my posting from 7 times a week to 4 times a week. I know some of you think that 4 times a week is a massive amount of posts, but when compared to that daily blogging I used to do - that's a huge change for me. 

NEW BLOG POST-SCHEDULE

So, from now on, you'll be able to find a new blog post from here on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 9am (GMT+2). Instead of having a daily dose of my ramblings, you must survive with 4 doses a week. Does that sound like a deal to you? 
Gosh, I sound like someone would actually read these things every day lol! 


MY BLOGGING GOALS FOR 2017

So, as I mentioned earlier, 2017 is here and it's here to stay. So I decided to update my yearly goals for this blog just as well I updated the posting schedule a couple of paragraphs back. 
First of all, I want to thank you all who has been there for the past year. This past year has been amazing and since I started setting for those goals, you've helped me to reach them, so thank you for that. I wouldn't be here without you. 

CONTENT

As you know, content was my n:o 1 priority last year and that's not going to change this year either. I believe that now when I'm posting only 4 times a week, I can manage to keep the content clean and you know, readable. Interesting, as one might want to say. Okay, we all know that not every single post can be interesting, but at least I'm trying to keep a fine quality in these posts. 

PHOTOGRAPHY

Pictures are the second important thing for me and my posts. I know it doesn't always seem like that and there are a few posts from the back that still haunts me in my dreams when I'm even thinking about the pictures in them, but I'm going to move on and start from the clean desk as you might say. I've planned to invest in some blog photo props so there won't only be that Lack table from IKEA behind and I don't know. I bought a lamp for this dark season they call Winter up here. You know, it's so annoying to try to shoot pictures when there's no daylight anywhere near. Ever. I can't wait for Spring and Summer already. Winter, I love you - but you're too dark to handle. 

COMMENTING

I've got this thing, whenever someone leaves a link included to his/hers comment on my blog posts, I go and check their blog out. Usually, I comment something somewhere if I find something to comment about just to return the favor. I love discovering new blogs, so keep on linking! 

BLOGLOVIN'

So, last year my goal was to hit 500 over at Bloglovin'. I freaking did it. I'm so happy and thankful to you all. So yeah, I think a decent goal for 2017 would be to hit 1000 BL' followers. Is that too many? Nah? 

Have you already sorted out your blogging goals for 2017?

  1. Posting seven days a week sounds crazy to me - I've been publishing something every third day for a couple of months now and feel like I wouldn't have time to write, photograph, and edit more content. I really appreciate people who can do it and do it properly! I haven't set any certain goals for 2017, neither blog-related or anything else, but got some inspiration of this post to do so!

  5. I share most of the same blogging goals! I really want to get better at flatlays and blog photography as it really is a different sort of photography than other types of photography and requires a very specific eye for detail. I think you can definitely achieve your goal of 1000 followers on Bloglovin, and that's actually a goal of mine as well! Best of luck to you!
