Did I Reach My Blog Goals?|My New Blog Goals For February 2018

Wow, I can't believe the first month of the new year is officially over! Honestly, time is going by way too quickly and I am not prepared! In just about three months it will be my daughters 1st birthday and I seriously cannot believe it! With the first month of the new year over, I thought I would go back and reflect on my blogging goals for 2018 and to see which goals I had met and what goals I need to work on more for next month.

Also, after I wrote my blogging goals post, you can check it out here if you missed it, I have came out with some new goals as well. So lets reflect on my goals that I had wished to accomplish and we can compare if I met those goals yet, or how far along I am. 

Original goals and did I accomplish them:
  • Plan out my blog posts and social media post: this is something I did lack for the month of January. I get PR sent to me randomly so somethings I really want to post a blog post about, so it is a little hard to plan those. As for posts about blogging and lifestyle, I have been doing a good job of planning those posts out.
  • Post two blog posts a week- looking at the dates on my blog, I did make 6 blog posts this month, which I was hoping for 8. So that is something I need to focus on more next month is to produce more content. 
  • Post 5 photos on Instagram a week- honestly, this one was a epic fail! I have been slacking really bad on Instagram and next month I am going to try my hardest to post 5 times a week. This month I think I posted 10 photos. So yeah, I guess you could say that was a pretty big fail. 
  • Reach 6,000 views on my blog for the month of January- this was something I did accomplish and I am so excited. I actually got over 6,500 views this month! So not only did I hit my goal, I went over by 500 views. 
  • Make at least $200 a month- this was something I did not accomplish this month, but thats ok! I ended up making a little over $50.00 this month which isn't too bad. I am hoping by the middle of the year I will be making that $200. 
  • Reach 100 followers on Pinterest- I was literally so close to reaching this goal. I am only three away which means I am at 97 followers now. So I know I will hit that next month for sure!

So it looks like out of all my goals, I only reached one of those this month. With that being said, I do have some new goals I would like to share. 
  • Plan out my blog posts and social media posts- I have a planner that I need to actually use. So I am not giving up on this goal.  
  • Reach 125 followers on Pinterest- since I am so close to 100, I might as well have a goal of 125 follower count as a goal for February. 
  • Post 4 photos on Instagram a week- 5 posts a week just seemed a little too much for me right now, so I am going to try and do at least 4 posts a week, hopefully more! 
  • Reach 7,000 views on my blog for the month of February- since I reached 6,500 for the month of January, I would love to reach 7,000 for the month of February. I will make me work a lot harder and it would feel like a huge accomplishment to finally hit 7,000 views a month. 
  • Post a mix of different blog topics- I have a few blog posts planned for February but I want to do a little bit of a mix this month including beauty posts, lifestyle posts and blogging posts. 
  • Post a total of 10 blog posts for the month of February- since I do have a lot of blog post ideas already, I want to post at least 10 different posts this month. I will be going out of town for a few days, so I know I will have to make sure I have everything planned in advanced, which brings me back to my first goal of making sure I plan out my blog posts. 
I am so excited to see what the month of February brings me. I would love to hear some of your blog goals for the month of February.
