10 Things I Hope For My Blogs Growth in 2017
With the New Year people make Resolutions, Set Goals and More! With that in mind, us bloggers set goals and plans for our Blogs growth! We're hopeful, ambition and sometimes just get lucky So I thought I'd share a few (10) of the things I hope for my Blogs Growth this year! Things I WILL be working towards!
First Off, let me just say how proud of my blog I already am! I created and designed this myself with no professional help and I think it's done well, with a few collaborative opportunities and companies reaching out to various reasons, this blog *out of my 6-7 others* is doing well! AND I've been consistently posting! HOWEVER, there's ALWAYS room for growth and I'm definitely wanting to grow with PO! So, let me share with you my 10 things!
1. I Want to Sharpen My Photography Skills:
As well as take better selfies, blog post photos, OOTD and MU-OTD shots! I've learned a lot fro playing with an older DSLR model, but I'm definitely hungry for more! I've always, ALWAYS loved photography and this is just another reason to better my skills and invest in a camera! I know it'll get used!
2. I want to Get Better at Editing my Photos:
Another important thing about presentation is having crisp, clean edited photos! So I want to learn to take and edit photos to showcase high quality and professionalism!
3. Learn how to take better photo's with my smart phone:
I know a lot of big bloggers take photos with their phones! I don't know if it's an Android vs. I phone type of thing, but I've found I'm not liking photo's I take on my phone...could be setting etc. Either way I need to get better!
4. Create more weekly/monthly newsletters:
I started out doing monthly and have admittedly fallen WAY off on my monthly/weekly newsletters! I need to figure out what to offer other than just sending out my blog posts!
5. Take some online blogger courses:
Whether it's learning how to use Pinterest to drive traffic, to create contests that convert or how to slay Instagram...I want to learn it all!
6. Get better at driving traffic to my blog/site:
This ties in with #5...I want to learn to up my page views in a big way! my numbers are painfully low!
7. New Camera. Either DSLR or Mirrorless:
This ties into 1 and 2! I learn pretty quickly how to use this current camera, and I feel the more comfortable I am playing with my own camera, the better I'll get! So I'm VERY much ready to invest in a camera!
8. Get my Macbook:
This ties in with a few. Whether it's editing photos or videos, creating better quality content. I've had PC's my entire life and am now seeing the value in SOME apple products! So I'd like to buy a 2nd hand one too!
9. Start creating videos/youtube channel:
This one is another one I've been big on! I've done videos before (very low quality) and am dying to really get into it! I genuinely enjoy doing it and want to learn more about it! Plus I feel it's an excellent way to really allow my viewers to really get to know me!
10. Get A LOT more engagement & subscribers:
I think the biggest thing I'm hoping for is getting to know more people. It's one of THE MAIN reasons I started a more professional blog! I want to learn and then share what I learn, inform and motivate others!
+11. Re-brand My blog and branding scheme:
While I love my blog ATM I know I'm going to want to re-brand my blog to better represent who I am. I've grown since the beginning of my blog and I know what I want more now than I did when I started!
