So we are half way through the year now and I would have been blogging for a whole year in October. Although I have been blogging for 8 months so far there is still a lot for me to learn. I’m now self hosted and I have been for about two months. I’m glad I made the jump but I wont say it was easy. I thought it would be a good idea to set myself some blog goals for the rest of the year. This will help me keep on track. You can all help me too.

Blog Goals

By the end of 2017 I would love to hit 150 subscribers and 10,000 page views. You can help me here by subscribing! You will see in my sidebar a way to add your email address – this means you will get emails sent to your mail box when I post a new blog.

Another aim of mine for my blog is to try and start getting 5,000 page views a month. So far since I have become self hosted I can only view back to May’s Statistics. In May I had 3,000 page views and in June so far I have got just under 3,000 page views. So what I think I need to do to improve this is post 2-3 blogs per week and share, share, share! I think I will also need to join some more Pinterest Tribes and share my pins for more exposure!

Mailing Lists

I still haven’t wrapped my head around the whole mailing lists and newsletters yet. So by the end of 2017 I would like to at least understand the whole process and it sorted.


You can find me at – I love Instagram and should up my game a little bit and post at least once a day. But my main goal here is to reach 500 followers by the end of 2017. My main frustration with Instagram though is that sometimes I notice some people follow me and unfollow me again a few days later! It drives me crazy!

You can find me at – I need to tweet more often but I’m getting there. With Twitter I have the same issue with Instagram. Where people follow and unfollow me a few days later. But by the end of 2017 I would like to reach 500 followers

With Pinterest I have to say this has my best follower count and I’m always gaining new followers daily. So I don’t think I’m going to have any trouble hitting 1000 followers by the end of 2017! You can follow me here

Facebook Group

You can follow me here – Facebook is plodding along ok. I would like to hit 500 followers

One of the biggest reasons why some bloggers change their blog to self hosted is so they can start monetising their blog.

I would like to monetise my blog a bit more. Already I am Amazon Affiliate and use Google Adsense, but they don’t bring in a lot.

I would love to find some brands to work with and have some sponsored posts on my blog. I would like to think I would have an least one sponsored post or product review by the end of 2017.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my goals for 2017 and please feel free to follow any of my accounts listed here! It would be very appreciated.

Also if you are a fellow blogger and have any hints or tips for me to reach any of my goals please comment below! Or if you would like to collaborate in any way message me 🙂
