We’re at Day 17 of the Challenge. I’m doing this with my blogging buddiesΒ MaggieΒ andΒ Cheila, so check out their responses to the prompts too!

Day 17 is about the Goals for my blog.

I have a few goals in mind for Life of Angela.

Here are my current ones:

  • Currently, I want to keep up with daily blogging. I haven’t missed a single day since I started, I’m now also up to two or three posts a day, which is crazy.
  • I will see through the 30 Day Blogging Challenge with the ever amazing Maggie and Cheila πŸ™‚
  • I want to finish my A-Z Challenge of TV shows, it doesn’t get as much traffic as my other posts. but I’m committed to finishing it. Once I complete it I can give myself a pat on the back, cause I’m starting to struggle with some letters XD But it’s a challenge! And I will also see it through.
  • I want to continue doing the Weekly Photo Challenges through Daily Post. I love finding out the new theme, and trying to come up with my own interpretation or spin on it.
  • I also want to stick with doing weekly TBT posts, it’s fun to look back and decide which story I want to share with you guys.
  • Keep up to date with reading all of your posts. This is where I lose track of time the most. I get so into reading your posts and stories, that I get annoyed that I have to head back to work, or that I have some errand to do. But it’s important to enjoy life too. I’m starting to find that balance.

Here are some future goals:

  • I have never been one to aim for many followers, but this blog has surpassed every expectation I had. I thought it would be nice to reach 100, and I’m already past 400 at a few months in! I like the roundness of the number 1000. But that feels far away. For now, I’m enjoying where my blog is at, and the community that I’m a part of πŸ™‚
  • Go self-hosted. I have been considering this for a while. However, I am trying to keep a tight lid on money because of our current plans. I am hoping towards the end of the year though, I might consider making the change. I will definitely let you guys know if I do, and give myself time to work it all out.
  • Videos. I’ve posted a few videos on here through YouTube. But I like the idea of one day making videos, on top of posts. I don’t think I would ever go full vlogger, because I am more comfortable typing on a computer, than speaking in front of a camera. But I would like to explore that avenue.

I’m happy to see where my blog will go. I’m still having so much fun, and I hope to keep carrying that momentum!

I wanted to include a photo, so here’s a photo of me on a massive chair

Thanks for reading all!

Angela.

    I can’t wait to see you reach all your goals! I’m starting to think of going self hosted, but if I do it’ll also be at the end of the year.

      Thank you! I have thought about self hosting for a while, but I do feel like you’d need a bit of time to set aside and focus on getting everything just right. At least, that’s what I would want to do πŸ˜€

    I’d love to see some vlogs πŸ™‚ lol
    And I’m also planning on going self-hosted but before I do I wanna make sure I’m gonna keep blogging. I mean obviously I want to, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to if I get a part time job once I graduate.

      I have been thinking about doing little vlogs. But on top of daily blogging, I’m thinking it might be too much XD I’ll try here and there though πŸ™‚
      Fair enough, waiting seems like a smart option.
      I work full time on top of blogging, and it’s hard to find that balance. I’ve sort of found it, but it is pretty tricky at times.

    This is such a great post. Your ability to daily blog is honestly amazing! I wanted to because everyone was saying it would improve traffic to my blog, but I could not come up with ideas for every day! Also, I hope that you do make videos as well. I’m sure they’d be amazing.

      Thank you Natalie! I’ve started planning a lot of posts in advance to help keep up my daily blogging. Otherwise it’s too hard! I love coming up with ideas though, if I do hit a block, then Pinterest it great for ideas πŸ˜„
      I would really love to do videos, but with shooting and then editing, they’re a lot more work! But I am totally willing to give it a shot some time πŸ™‚
