Well it is now 2020! It is the time of year when everyone is posting their resolutions and goals, so I decided I would add mine to the mix. 2020 is the year that I choose to be kind to myself, but 2020 is also the year that I choose to thrive rather than survive.
At the beginning of 2017 I posted my yearly goals. One of which was to hit 1,000 followers on Instagram. I thought it would take me the whole year to get to that goal but I was wrong. Hard work pays of off. This post is long overdue, but I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has followed me and helped this goal become a reality before we hit the half way mark of this year. Instagram is one of my favorite social media sites because it is an easy way to stay connected with friends and other bloggers. I love seeing the photos of everyone and the new things they are trying, and it means so much that over 1,000 people keep up with me!
MY TIPS FOR OTHER BLOGGERS!
2016 is behind us and 2017 is here! A new year to achieve new things and let the old things go! Last year I started The Brock Blog with no clue how many people it would reach, this year I want to reach more. One way to set yourself up for success is to set goals, so here are my main goals for 2017!!
1.Become more CONSISTENT at everything.
One of my greatest struggles is being consistent. For 2016 it was my goal to post on my blog at least once a month, but for 2017 I am wanting to post more on scheduled days so my readers know when to click my way!
2.Be more ORGANIZED
This goal kind of goes hand in hand with goal #1 but I am determined to be more organized. I have tried making memos in my phone and Post-it notes but for 2017 I have decided to try a planner! STARTplanner has helped me so much already keep track of special occasions and different due dates! Being organized means I will be on a strict schedule and in the end become more consistent!
3.Hit 1k (1,000) followers on Instagram!
Instagram is my favorite social media app out there! It’s easy to keep up with my favorite blogger and some of my best friends! When I started my blogging journey at the beginning of 2016 I had maybe 100 followers but now I am up to almost 500, it is my goal for 2017 to organically double that and post great content for my followers!
4.Learn to balance PARENTHOOD, MARRIAGE, and WORK!
Blogging is my job. Even though I work at home balancing the three things mentioned above is hard. My husband work 40+ hours, I am trying to become better at my job, and my son will be one in March. It would be so easy for me to neglect my blog so that I could spend time with my son and my husband but seeing other blogger’s success shows that there is such thing as a healthy balance and it is my goal to learn how to do it!
5.By the end of 2017 I want to have my own Domain
This is honestly my biggest goal for 2017. There are so many things that I want to be able to support my blog and have my own domain! I feel like with that comes so many more opportunities to branch out as well as bring in some income for my family as well as be found easier on sites like google and yahoo.
6.Be a better mom
This is a goal that I will have every day of every year. Momming is hard and some times I break easier than I should. For 2017 I want to be the best I can be for my son. I want to yell less, zone out less, and go numb less. He deserves me at my best and that is what I will do my best to be!
