2018 blogging & business goals 

I haven’t wrote a blog post in a good month now. I’ve not really been in the right frame of mind to do so and despite putting “write blog post” on my to-do list every day for the past 2 weeks, it hasn’t happened, I haven’t been able to bring myself to do it because you know what happens to blog posts when your heart’s not in it? They’re shit, that’s what. But this is something I’ve been thinking quite a lot about recently; my vision and goals for my blog and my book touring business for next year.

2018 is fast approaching, like, really fast. I swear only 4 days ago it was summer? So for the organised, goal-orientated people like myself, it’s probably time we start thinking about our goals and aims for next year so we can build up a good base in which to start. I don’t want to be too adventurous and what’s the word? Ambitious, with my goals. I want them to be small and realistic so I can build upon them throughout the year. So lo and behold, here they are!

Blog: Hit 7k blog followers

At the time of writing, I currently have 3,957, so assuming I continue working hard and producing content (and don’t scrap my blog altogether), I would like to think this is a doable goal.

Blog: Hit 10k on Twitter

Again, at the time of writing I have just over 7,700 Twitter followers so unless I post something awfully problematic and lose all my followers in the next month, I think this is achieveable.

Business: Hit a certain amount of savings 

I’m not gonna disclose how much I’d like to hit; y’all know how folk are funny about money and they’ll always be one judgy-wudgy sitting in the corner smirking at how much I have but I have a figure in mind and I’m gonna try my very hardest to hit it.

Blog: Start a newsletter 

This has been in the back of my mind as something I’ve wanted to do for a good few months now but the only reason I hadn’t was because I didn’t think enough people would read it! I figure even if 10 people read and enjoy it that’s good enough for me so expect a newsletter in 2018 folks!

Business: Offer new and inovative services for authors 

As blog tours go, they are pretty standard. I want to continue to grow my business, get new clients and keep my old ones because they’re happy with my work and to do that, I think I need to do a bit of brainstorming. This year, I introduced a “weekend blitz” blog tour, which have been very popular so if I can come up with something just as good, then great!

Blog: Read more and review more books

You might know that this started as a book blog, I posted so many reviews and I read so much. And whilst I still always have multiple books on the go, I’m definitely a slow reader and don’t have as many reviews up as I would like. Next year, I want to try and rectify that by regularly having a book review scheduled for perhaps once a week.

I’m sure I will have plenty more goals for next year but here are the main ones which revolve around my blog and my business – my livelihood so to speak! What are your blogging goals for next year?

  7. I’m not sure why this appeared in my feed today but I enjoyed reading it. My main goal for my blog is to stick to it and not give it up before the years end. I’d like to establish a regular following or at least a community of people I can bounce ideas off of online. I’d like to take as many writing course as I can find (for free) as to improve my technical ability!
