2016 Blogging Goals

I can't believe that it is getting to that time where we start making resolutions again. As I am planning to get more serious about stepping up my blogging game, I thought I would set myself some goals for the new year. Let's see if this works!

The main thing that will happen in 2016 with this blog is a complete rebrand. I think I have hated the name Another Student Blog about a day after I created this blog - and seriously, who thought it was a good idea to have such a long url. Hating my 2014 self!

So, I've bought a domain name for the first time in my life and currently sorting out themes, headers and other bits and bobs. Whilst going into my last two terms of uni, it probably isn't the best time to start focussing on my blog, but I am so excited - so watch this space!

Whilst I know numbers aren't everything, I would also love to increase my readership and views in 2016:

Reach 1000 Bloglovin followers 

Reach 1500 Twitter Followers

Reach 200 Instagram Followers 

I also have a few general blogging goals

Post more frequently

Take more photos and get better with editing them

Make sure I schedule tweets for every day

Try and participate in one blogger chat a week

Comment on more blogs

Let the creative juices flow

Go to a blogger event or meet some bloggers in real life

So that's it! 2016 is going to be a big year, not only for this blog, but for my life. Thank you for coming along on the ride with me, and I can't wait to spend another year with you all. 

Also, if anyone has any advice about rebranding, please let me know!

  4. With regards to your numbers I have every bit of faith that you'll smash them! I have pretty similar general blogging goals as you do, as well! I'm excited to your your blogging re-brand! (I totally understand that, I used to have a name I was unhappy with too, I think I'm a bit happier with this one, just need the little bits sorted!) Remember not to push yourself too hard, putting the effort into blogging is great when you can manage it, but if it becomes a struggle because of uni go a bit easier - I speak from experience :)

    1. Thank you for your confidence aha!! I totally understand that uni comes first - hoping to smash out the blog bits harder once I graduate and anything in between will be a plus. I love being busy, so I'm ready for the challenge! xx

  5. These are absolutely great goals that I know you will totally rock!

    I've been thinking a lot lately about my 2016 Blogging Goals - so this gave me inspiration. Thank You!

    As for Rebranding - I've done it before and I didn't realized how much it was needed until I finally gathered up the courage to. I know a few fellow bloggers who have rebranded and they say its the best decision they've made; and I couldn't agree more. When I first began blogging, I had the most ridiculously, long Blog name in the world. I kid you not, "Life is for the living, the forgiving, and for leaving town alive" was my blog name. and my url was "lifeofashlee" because I was 14 and didn't really know much about blogging yet, just that it was something I wanted to do.

    Over time I was thinking about what I wanted to change my ridiculously long name into..and so I did some research and I came up with my current blog name "Makeup and Modified's" which I love so much. Why? Because its the perfect combination of myself and my husband. I'm addicted to makeup// I'm a freelance makeup artist...where as my husband is a racecar driver and the class of cars he races are called "Modifieds"....IE. Makeup and Modifieds. :)

    I hope this helps!
