Blogging Goals for 2017

Blogging Goals for 2017

So I didn’t write any goals what so ever for 2016, no personal or blogging goals and I think that’s why the year has been a little messy all round! Although I am super happy with where Dainty Dweeb is going considering I started blogging in 2015 with pretty much no idea what I was doing. I didn’t think anyone would read it, at all let alone read regularly. But here we are, with regular readers and followers and all that jazz. So, I’m super pleased about that. But this year, I think it’s about time I started with some blogging goals. Something to motivate me and my writing.

  • Be more interactive. I like to think I’m a little interactive with the blogs I love reading, but I want to be more interactive with the writers behind the blogs. I want to make friends, friends with the same interests, friends who actually care, friends like you guys.
  • Improve my photography. I have said this over and over again since 2015, and I think I have improved slightly but there’s always room for improvement. I want to take pictures where I look at them and think, hey that’s a great photo; not just ‘yeah that’s okay, it’ll do’.
  • Get some blogging equipment. This also kind of ties in with my photography improvement. I want to get a camera, a ring light because my god it’s so hard finding the time to shoot in daylight these days. When I have the motivation and inspiration to take photo’s it’s always too dark and when the daylight comes I’m either too busy or full on in laze mode where I don’t want to be doing anything. 
  • Read more. I need to find some new blogs that I love just as much as my all time favourites. I think it’s a disgrace that I can count the blogs I read regularly on one hand. This definitely needs to change.
  • Invest more time on my own blog. This seems to come and go depending on personal life, which I’m okay with. But I would like to regulate the time I spend on my own blog where possible. I want to schedule two posts a week where possible and stick to that.

Okay, so there we go. They’re not massive goals, or milestone goals but they are my goals. Do you have any goals this year? Whether that may be blogging goals or personal, I’d love to hear!

    It is so amazing to have goals, regardless of whether they’re personal or for your blogging. It’s great to hear you made some for yourself! No matter what anyone says, these are great goals because these are the goals you made for yourself. I actually also made a list of personal goals I wanted to achieve for 2017 on my blog! Have a beautiful day xxx

      Goals are always great, they help you work towards better things. Whether that be in the blogging world or your personal life. It’s always good to have something to work toward!

      Thanks for stopping by chick xo

    Perfect goals to set for the year! I also want to improve on my photography. Do you have a camera you use or are you like me and use your iphone 😉

    xo, JJ

      I have been saying since I started Dainty Dweeb that I am going to make a conscious effort to improve my photography and I definitely have since the beginning but there is always room for improvement.

      At the moment I just use my trusty iPhone but I think I’m going to have a look at camera’s as the year goes on. What do you use for yours chick?

      P.s thanks for reading! 🙂 xo

    Love the goal of being more interactive, definitely something I am trying this year. I just need to stay on top of it and not beat myself up when I can’t keep up. Love this post!

      I think I was definitely more interactive at the beginning of 2016 but it seemed to slip away with me starting my new job and moving home. But this year I’m going to try a little harder, and definitely not beat myself up if life gets in the way.

      Thank you for reading! 🙂 xo

    I definitely want to do all of these things with my blog too! I have a new camera and want to really get to grips with it. I want to find more blogs and chat to the bloggers behind them too- you’re one of those today! I have loved flicking through your blog 🙂 ~ Kat ~

      I really want to get my hands on a camera, and the best way to get to grips with a new camera is to get out there and take some pictures!!

      I really love to get to know bloggers behind the blogs, its my favourite thing to do 🙂


      • January 26, 2017 / 1:15 PM

        Yes that’s so true! Just going to the park and taking pictures has been great! I hope you get your hands on a camera asap! ^_^

          I’m struggling to set the money aside at the moment, but January’s always the worst. Hopefully a little later on in the year I’ll have one 🙂

    Oh my goodness I’ve been meaning to get a camera for the LONGEST time. I just can’t bring myself to part with the money :’) These goals are fab and definitely seem achievable! X

    YES!! 100% am in unison with your goals. Though i just created my blog a few days ago, I want to hit it off on a strong note 🙂

    I’m trying to start my first blog too but I have no idea what I’m doing either. I know I want to do a personal blog to share my stories, but I don’t know where to start.
