Even though I do put too much pressure on myself at times, I love setting myself blogging goals. They help keep me focused and it’s interesting to look back at the end of the year and see how many I managed to achieve. I had such an incredible year in 2014 that this year I want to take things a step further in order to develop my blog.
1. Stick to my Blogging Manifesto
Creating my manifesto was a massive turning point for me. When I look back on my old posts, it’s my manifesto that stands out the most. Whilst I believe I’ve stuck to it well so far, I’d like to start incorporating it into my bl0g more.
2. Post regularly
Something that annoys me about myself is that I have a tendency to post regularly for a few weeks and then go back to sporadic posting. 2015 will be the year of regular posting, I’m sure of it!
3. Complete all of my upcoming projects
I have lots of projects that I’m building at the moment, and I’d love to have lots of these completed by the end of 2015. I’m so excited about all of them – I can’t wait to share them soon!
4. Get better at replying to blog comments and tweets
I’m so bad at replying to comments and tweets. I always mean to do it and then get distracted by something else! 2015 will be the year of the replies!
5. Reach my targets
This year I’ve set myself realistic targets for follower counts and statistics that I won’t be disappointed if I don’t meet, but it would be nice if I could!
6. Balance my blog and YouTube channel at the same time
I’d like to get into a routine and be able to juggle both at the same time because I hate abandoning one for the other. They’re both my children!

I think mine is just to see if I can keep it up for the year! And complete the challenges I’ve signed up to so far: really loving going through my books and seeing which ones can qualify for the British Books Challenge.

I also want to post more regularly, even if I’m quite busy with schoolwork. I want to schedule posts too, as it takes a lot of pressure off of me if I know that I’ll have a post up the following day, or even the following week. Lately I’ve been replying to comments and becoming more involved in the blogging community and it’s so much fun making friends with so many different bloggers! 🙂 Good luck with all your goals, Lucy! <3

I want to actually stick to blogging, I’ve been known for giving up as soon as I come across a point where I don’t know what to blog or think my photography skills are terrible (which they are) but this year I want to persist and hopefully at the end of the year I’ll still be blogging!

I used to be RUBBISH at photography, but keep working on it and it will get better! Perseverance is key!
Good luck with your goals!

Good luck on your goals, I think the one about replying to comments is a difficult thing for most of us bloggers. Good luck on your goals. Mine is to just keep reading.

Good luck with your goals! Most of mine are quite similar to yours. I’m going back to school on Tuesday, and I know once I get back into my usual (busy) schedule, I won’t be posting regularly (even though I really want too)!
Hope you have a great year,
