The Evolution of My Blog

I touched on wanting to give my space a makeover recently and I've been making some small alterations here and there.  I've added a Best Of page and also some insight into my future goals. However, I still can't shake the feeling like my blog isn't the best blog it could be.  I want it to be better.

What do you do when you're trying to figure something out in 2015 ? You google it. After spending an afternoon scouring a zillion many blogs, pinterest, and bloglovin', I've come up with a list of goals:
  1. Download a blogging planner - plan my posts
  2. Create more posts ahead of time - schedule them for when life gets hectic
  3. Work on the photos/gifs in my posts - get the pictures off my phone and on the blog !
  4. Create more interactive posts - I want to create conversations, not just tell you stories everyday
  5. Find my niche - I don't want to pigeonhole myself anywhere but I also don't want to be so random that coming here gives you a sad.

I'm putting these goals up so that I can see progress AND hold myself accountable.  Because part of the blogging community is growing and changing and learning from each other. 

Are there any goals you would add to the list ?


  1. I HATE BLOGGER. Stop eating my comments, blogger! SIGH.
    This is a good goal list, and I think you'll find that as you spend more time in this space you'll just sort of naturally settle into the vision you have, and you'll find things that you like to write about or the kinds of posts you like to have, and that'll help it become a natural habit re: blogging. Good luck!

  2. Girl it too me so long until I finally found my niche! You got this :)

  3. Yay blog goals! I used to try to plan my posts but I'm a lot better at writing posts when they come to me (which is sometimes only once a week but whatever). I think my niche is not having a niche. My posts have felt really random and sporadic lately but at the same time, it's really only been in the last month or two that I've been really happy with and proud of everything I've written so I guess something is working? Hope you find your groove :)

  4. I am actually doing the same exact thing! I made a goal list last week for the rest of 2015 and even put a couple on a 2016 goal list! A couple of my goals is to do a guest post on someone else's blog and vice versa as well as network and make blogging friends :)

    My blog is glitterandthegirlygirl.blogspot.com and I have a website theglitterylife.com if you want to check it out! I would love to make some blogging friends, learn more, and grow!

  5. coming here would never give anyone a sad! i have no niche and i dig it. i love to schedule posts (i might have too much time on my hands) and i always start off with link ups or specific things i want to post on specific dates and then just shove something from my drafts on the other days.. i don't like posting 5 days a week so i can't go too crazy because i still like the spontaneous posting when something comes to you randomly, you know? good luck with your goals!


You make my heart happy when you leave me comments ! I respond to all of them via email :) Thanks for being a rockstar !
