2017 Goals!

I have a few ideas of things I'd like to do and achieve by the end of the year - both personal and for my blog - which has had a fancy makeover for the new year! I like to think some (or most) of these are doable by the end of 2017. so let's see what I can do!

And if you have any goals for you or your blog, please feel free to share them! I'm not going to explain any of them this time, as I'd like to just leave this here as a list for me to check on, and also might be useful to anyone else looking to set themselves some goals.

Personal Goals
  1. Read 4 books
  2. Drive somewhere new
  3. Go to the cinema 15 times
  4. Start & uphold, the 52 Week Saving Challenge
  5. Get into a better sleeping routine
  6. Lose some weight/tone up 
  7. Carry on with the job search/get a new job
  8. Organise my room better
  9. Get into a better skin care routine
  10. Eat less junk food and more fruit
  11. Be smarter with my money
  12. Start and finish writing a book
  13. Drink more water
  14. Purge possessions!
  15. Go out more often

Blog Goals
  1. 1200 Bloglovin followers 
  2. 5500 Twitter followers 
  3. 1250 Instagram followers 
  4. 400 YouTube subscribers 
  5. 350 Facebook page likes 
  6. 200,000 blog page views
  7. Post 3 times each week
  8. Allow myself 2 weeks off from blogging - twice this year
  9. Start advertising on my blog again
  10. Take bulk photos for posts more often

I'll do a check in, sometime around Summer, so I can see how I'm doing! Fingers crossed I'll do better this year round... Do you have any personal or blog goals for the new year? Let me know, I'd love to help cheer you along! Hope you're having a great start to the New Year, have a great day and keep safe :)

  1. Those are some great goals! What's the 52 Week Saving Challenge? And what job are you looking for? x

    1. Thank you! :) The 52 week challenge is where you put the same amount of money aside each week, as the # week of the year it is! So this is week #1 of the year, so I'd put £1 aside, and so on until the end of the year! You can save £1378 doing this! :)
      Not sure what job yet, but anything with more hours that what I'm on now! xx

  2. You said "get into a better sleeping routine" twice ;) I love the new look blog, by the way! And great goals - good luck with them. Do let me know if you start up advertising on your blog again as I'd definitely be interested. x x

    1. 😂😂 I was disobeying my own rule and wrote this post at 1am, so can tell I was tired!! Thanks for pointing that out, changed it to what it was meant to be now!
      Glad you like the new blog look, took me an age to sort it out :) I'll be looking to do blog advertising sometime in the next few months once work has calmed down, so will let you know when I do! ❤️

  3. These are great goals! I actually share quite a lot of these with you (aside from the blog goals, I've decided not to set any for myself apart from posting more!). I'm sure you're going to be able to hit your goals! Out of interest, (I'm nosey and like knowing :p) are there any of these goals you think will be the biggest challenge for you?

    1. Thank you - I think a lot of people have similar ones thankfully, so I don't feel alone!! I like to set 'targets' just so I can push myself to get better with the blogging :) Haha, well purging my possesions, writing a book and being better with money are all the hardest three for me!
      I really need to spend less and use more of what I have, but I am awful with spending habits!!! xx

  4. Well hey you know an aesthetician so if you have questions/need suggestions on that skincare routine, you've got an in :P

    1. Haha, you can just sort my whole face out for me Tiff!! ❤️

  5. Great goals Tania! I have some similar blog goals but with smaller numbers of course. I hope to get to the place where those numbers seem reachable. Hope you get them!

    Much Love,

    1. I like trying to get some good goals for the year, and last year I managed all but one, so not bad going so far! Good luck with yours :) xx
