Blogging Goals - 2016

Another Christmas has come and gone... and now we have 2016 to focus on. It blows my mind that an entire year has passed so quickly. So much has happened in this year, but at the same time, I'm really excited for a new year and a fresh start. My blog has grown a ton in the six months since I created it, but there's a lot that I would like to accomplish in the next year and I really would like to put more focus on Live The Prep Life as it grows. I am a huge goal setter, and I have put together a few goals that I would love to accomplish by the end of the year.


Double the amount of my followers on each social media platform // Not only do I want to grow my blog, but I want to grow Live The Prep Life as a whole, too. As of right now, I'm so close to 1,000 Instagram followers, I have about 120 Twitter followers, and my Pinterest and Bloglovin' followers are each tied at 27. (yeah. Maybe I should try to triple these two.)

Re-design my blog // The design I have now isn't horrible, but it doesn't tell you anything about who I am or what my purpose is. It doesn't scream "Brooke." It doesn't scream "Live The Prep Life." Ideally, I would like to design my blog myself, but first I have to learn HTML and CSS, so I will probably end up buying a design. Down the road, though, DIYing a design for my blog will definitely happen. It might take a while, though.

Buy a custom domain name // This kind of goes along with redesigning my blog. I really want to re-do my entire blog, and have a fresh start for 2016. I will most likely be keeping my title as Live The Prep Life, but you never know - I might completely rebrand. Whatever I do, though, by the end of the year I definitely want to be a dot com.

Become more active on Snapchat // I started doing this somewhat after Christmas, when I was sharing the gifts I got, but I would like to get to the point where I am active on there every single day. The hard part is, I mainly use my personal Snapchat, and I don't have the motivation to switch between accounts, but I hope to change that! Be sure to add me at livethepreplife if you haven't already! I promise to share fun behind-the-scenes snaps!

Do more preppy posts // I mean, my blog is titled "Live The Prep Life" after all. Leave a comment below telling me what kinds of preppy posts you want to see, because I would love to do those! I haven't done outfit posts in forever, and I really want to start doing those again, too!

Create a constant theme // Again, this one goes along with redesigning my blog. If you look at my graphics that I use for each posts, they're all over the place in terms of colors and fonts. My profile poictures vary from account to account, and the pink color scheme that I have on Twitter doesn't match the white, gray, and blues of my blog. I want people to be able to look at a graphic, font, or color, and immediately associate it with Live The Prep Life.

I am so excited to see what is in store for Live The Prep Life in 2016 and I just want to thank each and every one of you for following along and supporting me! Y'all seriously mean the world to me.

What are your blogging goals for 2016?
