I am going to review my blogging goals of 2017 because this year is coming to an end now and I thought that today would be a good time to reflect on the year which has been 2017 in a blogging capacity. I have not managed to hit many I think only one of my social media goals, however, I have actually been able to do a lot of things which I could not have imagined. This year did actually see me get a better camera I now have the Cannon G7X Mark II this is something which I was luckily gifted to from Joe. This was so that I would be able to capture some of the memories which he would of Jess when he was away.
I think that my photography has actually come on a lot this year, however, of course this is something which I want to improve more. I think that I will be able to actually use Jess more because this camera does have a screen she can actually see herself and as long as Jess can see herself she is very happy to be photographed. This year has also seen me work with some amazing brands who I could have only dreamt about for example I have worked with Prestige Flowers, Bakerdays, Rock Up Hull & Toddlerbike 2. I could not work these amazing brands without you all following me and actually reading my posts. So, thank you so much because I enjoy and apricated every single one of you.
On to my social media goals which I set at the start of the year
As you can see I was 600 followers away from my goal which is fine with me because I actually grew by 500 followers this year. I have not been that active on twitter for some reason however, this is something which I would like to change. I know this is something which I could do on the commute and hopefully, I could take part in more chats which occur on there.
Instagram is one of the social media which I find really hard to grow but this is something which speaking to other bloggers find. It is something which I think I need to be able to post more often on there because I think I only posted around 40 times. Instagram stories I have found a great way to interact with my followers. They are something which I love watching and are something which I think that I could do a fair more of them this year.
Bloglovin in a platform which a lot of bloggers came of this year and this is because of the way that it changed their terms and conditions. This could be one of the reasons why I may not have actually achieved my goal. I am proud that I have managed to grow a little bit but as long as I know that people are still reading my posts and I feel like I am creating content which I love and would want to read. This is a goal which I might actually set for 2018 because I do think that it could be achievable.
Facebook was the only platform which I managed to achieve my goal on this year which is shocking because it is not the platform which I do not use that often I think I actually might have to use it more because it is something which you are all loving at the moment. I manage to nearly triple my likes on the page which is amazing I will be looking to post more videos and share them over there.
Thank you for actually allowing me to achieve some of my goals this year and without you, I could not have reached these crazy numbers. It sometimes shocks me that people out there actually want to read the content which I product.
