ALLLL the way back in January, I set some goals for myself on what I wanted to achieve for my blog in 2020. Some were social media based, some were more content based.
I’ll sum them up quick below, but if you want a refresher, read my 2020 Goals here.
Goals – SOcial Media/Reading
I keep track every Sunday of the progress of my social media channels, so here are the goals and the current standings of each of them.
|12 Books Read||6 Finished (though I have two more that are halfway done and don’t expect this to be too difficult.)|
|325 Twitter Followers||304 Followers (I expect I’ll hit 325 by the end of the month)|
|150 Instagram Followers||131 Followers (This might take longer, but I should have it met soon!)|
|25 Facebook Followers||16 Followers (I’m not totally sold on Facebook yet, but its slowly growing)|
|300 Blog Followers||232 Followers (The furthest of my social media goals, but I am growing at a steady pace and don’t expect too much issue with this one.|
I’m not trying to brag or anything, but I have been increasing my social media presence in different ways, and I have been seeing results.
I don’t imagine I will meet all the goals by the end of May, but I expect to have most of them reached by the end of June or July for sure.
GOALS – Content
I wanted to explore more content for my blog, so I came up with some goals for myself for that as well. Again, here are the goals and their current status.
|Host 2 giveaways (one for Christmas and one for hitting 300 followers)||Haven’t started, but I have plans for a Christmas one floating in the back of my head. Might hold off on the 300 follower one until I reach all social goals.|
|Host 1 contest for writers||Rough planning has commenced but nothing concrete.|
|Have 5 collaborations with authors or other bloggers this year||Already at 3 and have a few in mind to get started on soon.|
|Create a blogging award (not specifically for book bloggers)||Not done, but in the early stages.|
|Create new look for this blog||Done and I like the new look!|
|Create a blog mascot||Has changed slightly, but it is “done.”|
|Make significant progress on my book||Have done significant planning and writing has commenced.|
Not as far along on the content goals, but I am making good progress seeing as its only the fifth month of the year.
Once I hit all of the social media goals, and one or two more of the content goals, that’s when I’ll host a giveaway. I have a few ideas in mind but nothing set in stone yet.
