My 2016 Goals

 photo My 2016 Goals_zps5m9c9om1.jpg

Every year I try and make myself a decent sized list of goals that I want to achieve throughout the year and then I break them down by month in hopes of making them easier to accomplish. By far my biggest accomplishment of 2015 has been creating my blog and achieving the point of success that I'm at in under a year.

With that being said, I have much bigger goals for myself in 2016. This is also the year that I'll be graduating college (sorry, what?!) and many more big, exciting events that I cannot wait to share! There is no better feeling than having an entirely clean slate to work off of in 2016 though, and I'm so excited for what is in store this year!

I have a TON of things I want to accomplish this year both personally and having to do with blogging, this list is longer than expected...



  • Get back to my fitness plan and healthy eating
  • Work on creating more high quality photos
  • Create more content ahead of time
  • Double my page views each month
  • Get my blog redesigned or upgraded
  • Travel SO much more
  • Work with at least one new brand per month
  • Give old posts some serious face lifts (especially my oldest posts... eesh!)
  • Step up my social media presence and gain more of a following
  • Find the positive change in myself that I'm seeking
  • Make more blogging friendships (they're the BEST!)
  • Apply for Big Brother!!
  • Update my style to my liking
  • Stick to my blogging routine/editorial calendar
  • Try new things I wouldn't normally do/try
  • Be more consistent on social media postings
  • Use a scheduler more for social media

Out of all of my goals, these are the most prominent and ones that I want to achieve most! I'm so excited to see what the new year brings for me personally and on my blog. I have so many exciting things coming and I already have my editorial calendar planned out through mid-February, score!!

What are your main goals for 2016?

  1. I wish you the best of luck! I never make goals for myself - I prefer to wing it and go from there :)

  2. Everyone is making me feel guilty that I didn't set any goals for myself lol. I guess I'm going to have to think of one or two to set. I love yours and might just borrow a couple of your ideas.

  5. These are great goals to work towards. I wish you luck especially finding a brand to work with once per month. I've not got there yet - rather too shy to do anything about that one.

    I so want to travel more. Where would you want to go this year?

  9. Great goals. Definitely look into getting a template from Etsy because they're so much cheaper until you can pay someone to do a design. Now these days people charge so much. lol

  10. Best of luck with these ambitious goals! I am also graduating from college this year! I'm so glad to run across a fellow college blogger, and would love to swap stories. Connecting with other bloggers is also one of my goals!

  29. This is a good list of goals. I like the way you word things - goals rather than resolutions. I think goals are more constructive and do-able by design than resolution hopes.

  33. That's a lot of resolutions! I like the way your blog looks already so if you improve it, it's definitely going to look amazing (even if you don't necessarily need it)

  34. I love the way your blog looks already FYI, but we have so many of the same goals! Love it! Let's do this! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love your goal of making more blogging friendships! It's something I definitely want to do as well. One of my goals is to create more content ahead of time. We make a calendar on my blog, but last year I still found myself writing the post an hour or so before it was supposed to go live.

    Good luck on all of your goals (and especially Big Brother)!
