Blogging Goals for 2020

Catch the Sunrise

I know I’m a little late to the game with these New Year’s posts… but life has just taken up too much of my time since Christmas. I was out of work for a bit for the holiday, then my bosses were out a bit for the holidays and one of them still is (jealous!) and things have just been really hard to concentrate on. Well, I’m hoping that will change in this new year and I want to get my mojo back and stop procrastinating.

I’ve come up with a list of a few goals that I want to implement for my blog this year and a few things I really want to focus on. Most are for my blog, but there are a few things in there unrelated to the WordPress blogging platform, but still include writing or publishing.

  • Write more authentic material about my life, my mental health and how I deal with it. Afterall, this is a mental health focused site, and I would like to keep it that way.
  • Upload more photography with my posts that I have taken, or taken specifically for that post. Too many times I’ve used sites like Unsplash for photography for my personal posts, and while I do have a photography page on my blog here, I think I need to start taking specific photos for each blog I’m writing and put some more time into that aspect.
  • Publish another piece or two for Thought Catalog this year. I’ve written one before, but it’s been so long, I think it’s time I write some more in my down time… whenever I may have that.
  • Create a page on my blog for my Virtual Assistant Services that I offer to small businesses. I’ve been doing them freelance for a little bit now, and I don’t really have set documentation yet except a SOW and way to Invoice everyone. I think it’s time to focus on that a bit more.
  • Continue taking guest bloggers throughout the year. I’ve been doing this since October 2018 and would love to make this consistent on my blog for 2020 and beyond even. I can count this as an ongoing goal I think and make it happen!
  • Challenge myself to write at least 4-5 posts per month of my own content and help tips for readers.
  • Focus on Pinterest more to drive traffic to my blog and make my own Pinterest graphics to go along with each post I create. I haven’t really been focusing on Pinterest much, and from what I hear, it’s great for impressions and to find new readers.
  • Write about my experience with online schooling with SNHU and how my classes go. I am taking 2-3 classes this year and I really want to keep track on how it goes. I know alot of people do it these days and want to keep up with it.

what are your goals for 2020 for your blog?

  1. Great goals!! Just wondering about the Virtual Assistant Services you provide…I am thinking of eventually branching out into stuff like that so I was just wondering what are the services you do and what is the easiest skill to start with?

  2. Great goals! I need to get out there and take some more pictures for my blog as well. I am just learning how to make Pinterest work for me so I’ve got this focus going on too. I’m sure the year ahead will be filled with opportunities and experiences that spur growth! Best of luck in all these endeavors 🙂

  3. I’m going back to school for business – but the class I’m starting with is intro to marketing because I already have a great background in it haha. Start off easy to get acclimated.
    And thank you! 😇

  4. Much agreed! I too am having a bit of a rough time, but we will get through! I made goals that are semi/mostly achievable because I am also starting a class soon and going back to college online. I needed to be realistic this time haha!

  6. These are such lovely and achievable goals! I’ve got quite a few as well, including stepping up my social media game to help drive more traffic to my blog and optimising my blog for SEO – a task that’s long overdue by now! I’m more determined than ever to reach my goals this year. Good luck wit yours, you can do it! ❤️
