5 Blogging Goals



Thanks to EatPrayRunDC, YouSignedUpForWhat? & MarontheRun for hosting this link-up. Today I am linking up again with The DC Trifecta Friday Five.


I'm not really ready for fall, so I almost picked a different topic.  See in Utah we have been getting a month of unsually crazy amount of daily rain storms.  Normally we can go through August without seeing many drops and temps in the high 90's.  Not so much this year, in fact our mountains actually got snow last weekend??? Which is why I am still okay with summer sticking around a bit longer.
However, there are a few things I have plans to work on this fall, so I thought I would share with you my Five Fall Blogging Goals.



INSTAGRAM
I recently signed up with an Instagram account @Runawaybridalplanner.  At first I literally couldn't see the point of it, I mean it's just pictures.  But it is slowly wearing off on me and I'm finding I am enjoying it more and more each day.  One of my goals this fall is to build my following base up on it.  So if you want to help me out, I'd love it if you'd send me a follow CLICK HERE:)  FYI I follow back! 

SWITCH TO SELF HOSTED  
It's been a long time debate for me, should I switch from blogspot to a self hosted .com?  Technically, I bought my domain the same time I started my blog.  But part of me didn't want to switch over until I was making enough money each month on my blog to pay for the self hosting, yes I am cheap:).
After I speak to a few people who have done the blogspot to self host switch, it's my goal to switch over sometime in the next few months.  So if your one of those blogspot people who have done it, and you'd allow me to ask you a few maybe a dozen questions, I'd love it if you'd let me know!

FIND NEW AWESOME BLOGGERS TO FOLLOW  
I used to blog surf once a week and find a new blog to follow.  Then life got hectic and I realized I wasn't doing this as much.  My goal for this fall is to do this again, find 1 new blogger to follow and interact with each week.  

RUNNING TIPS
Now that I am running again, and increasing my mileage weekly and slowly building back up to finish the last 19 states I have goals to run marathon's in.  I am going to start offering tips for runners on Thursday's on my blog.


BLOG HOPS
I have done a ton of research on them.  I've found lots of new ways to get all the different bloggers giveaways who have linked up to join my giveaway hops onto larger platforms to get more and different eyeballs coming to our blogs.  My goals for this fall are to double the amount of bloggers who are participating in the hops and double the amount of entrants.  I've joined up with some great co-hosts for these hops who are going to help me get the word out.  I think with a bit more pushing, that we can make these hops even bigger and better than ever before.

Speaking of which, if your a blogger and your thinking of hosting a giveaway in September, why not join up with us and have even more people visit your giveaway!  The Linky platform I use tracks page views, and the average combined blogs posts (all bloggers participating combined) receive over 15,000 pageviews on the giveaway posts during that hop.  Which for smaller blogs who are looking to grow their numbers, this could potentially give you the opportunity to find lots of new followers.
You can view the sign up details HERE.
If you agree to the rules for the hop, we'd love to have you join us in the link up below.



Those are my 5 blogging goals for this fall.  Do you set blogging goals?  What are some of your blogging goals?
