It’s that time of year when we start to make goals in all parts of our life! This year I really want to build my blog, hoping to reach new readers, and monetise my site.
Below, I have written my blogging goals for 2021, in an attempt to keep myself accountable in the coming months.
This post contains affiliate links. This means I earn a little commission if you purchase a product using my link, at no extra cost to you. I only include links to products I have used and loved 🙂
It’s taken me a few weeks into the New Year to really decide on the direction I’m going this year- I’d love to find out your goals for 2021, and see if you share any of the same ones!
Write an Ebook
This is my main goal for 2021! I love writing, and so I would love to get started on an ebook project in the next few months. I’ve been reading a few ebooks from other bloggers over on Gumroad, and it would definitely be amazing if I could earn a bit of money from one of my own products alongside my blog.
I also think it would be amazing to create a blogging resource or template, and it’s fantastic to have a project to work on during these tough times- so I can’t wait to get going with it!
At the end of 2020 I bought *Jenny’s ebook all about growing your blog following, and it has been so helpful in growing my readership here on my blog, and on my social media channels.
SEO is something I’ve been trying to work on for ages- and I’m slowly starting to learn more and more about it. But it’s not easy, and SEO isn’t something that interests me as much as other parts of blogging so I sometimes find it hard to motivate myself.
I think the best thing I’ve done to learn more about SEO is buy *’SEO For Bloggers‘ by Nele. It’s such a fantastic ebook from someone who really understands SEO. She also writes in a simple way- SEO can be tricky, but this ebook really talks you through the steps you need to follow in order to implement a great strategy. I cannot recommend it enough, so check out the ebook *here.
Affiliate marketing can be tough sometimes- but I really enjoyed getting involved with it in 2020! So in 2021 I would love to earn a little more money from affiliate marketing– as well as advertise the brilliant products I’ve been enjoying in the past few months.
This is another of my biggest blogging goals for 2021! Sponsored content is so much fun to write, and I love being able to earn from my writing. Writing is one of the things I love to do more than anything, so to be able to get money for blogging is amazing! In 2021, I hope to gain more sponsored opportunities, and start to feature more brilliant people or companies in my posts.
Social Media Engagement
My final blogging goal for 2021 is to up my social media engagement. I’m already very active on Twitter, but I’d like to engage with bloggers and accounts on other platforms. I love that social media is one of the top places I get my blog views from, and towards the end of 2020 I really upped my engagement. I’d really like to keep this up in 2021, and maybe reach 10k followers on Twitter? But that might be unrealistic…
Do you have any blogging goals for 2021? What do you think of my goals? Where do you see your blog going in 2021?
