I have been meaning to post my 2019 blogging goals for a few days now but I have been quite ill and then it was my boyfriend’s birthday so I haven’t had time to sit down and write this post until now. I like setting myself goals for the month and the year. So, here are my blogging goals for 2019.
This is a simple one, but I want to make sure that this month I post regularly throughout the year. I am hoping to write a blogging plan for each month, with post ideas and some set dates for posts. I am not going to stick to these plans 100% because I feel like it would take the fun out of blogging for me. Although I work a lot better when I have a plan to refer to, so I am going to write my plans, but they won’t be rigid plans! I feel plans and ideas will help me to post regularly.
Interview More Authors
One of my favourite things I did last year was interview authors. I still can’t believe I even had the opportunity to interview any authors last year, but it is honestly one of my favourite things to do. This year I would love to interview even more authors. Not only that, but I want to get better with the questions I ask authors. I want to spend my time interviewing authors asking questions all about their work and not whether they like day or night more. I cannot wait to see what interview opportunities come my way this year.
Chair a Book Event
This is an ambitious one, but I am going to put it down as a goal for this year. I feel with the previous goal of interviewing more authors this is the next step. If I get better and more concise with the questions, I ask authors, I would then love to chair a book event. I feel it would be incredibly nerve wrecking to chair a book event, but I would love to do it. I feel this is a goal I will have to work hard to achieve but I will certainly try my best!
Be More Active on Social Media
I want this year to be more active on social media. I want to tweet more, and I would love to get a theme and some excellent photos for me Bookstagram account. I tweet quite often currently but I don’t talk about what I’m reading when I am reading it and I feel that would be lovely to share over on my Twitter. Also, I would like to branch into Instagram stories this year when possible. The last social media goal I have for the year is to use my Pinterest page I created for the blog and learn more about that site.
Redesign My Blog
At some point this year I want to give Lois Reads Books a makeover. I love the design I have at the minute, but I feel it is due for an update. I am going to plan my designs and themes and hopefully work on them throughout the year in order to redesign the blog at some point in the year. I am loving designing things at the minute and I feel this will continue for the year and I will get better as the year goes on. So, I would like to put my designing skills to the test.
