2016 Blogging Goals - Update

Since the year is a fourth over, it's time for me to do my first update on my 2016 goals! Back in January, I made some goals for my blog. While I haven't completed them all, I've completed a few of them and have a couple in progress.

2016 Blogging Goals Update | Live The Prep Life


Double the amount of followers on each of my social media platforms // I'm almost to my Instagram and Twitter goals. I've doubled my Bloglovin' goal, as well as quadrupled my Pinterest goal. I'd say that's progress!

Redesign my blog // THIS IS HAPPENING VERY SOON I PROMISE! Honestly, the only thing that has been holding me back is the fact that I can't choose between designs... leave a comment telling me which one you like better! Josie | Quincy There's one that I'm leaning toward, but I can't decide between the two.

Buy a custom domain name // I haven't even begun to contemplate this one. After redesigning my layout, this will come next.

Become more active on Snapchat // Done! I am so proud to say that I add something to my story almost every other day. I share mail hauls, shopping trips, and all sorts of peeks into my daily life. If you haven't added me already, add me at livethepreplife!

Do more "preppy" posts // I've done a decent job with this one... but I'm not really happy with how they have turned out. I feel like all I've been sharing lately are Polyvore sets. There's nothing wrong with doing that every once in a while, but I don't want that to become the only thing I do. I really want to do more outfit posts, but that requires getting someone in my family to cooperate and take pictures of me. I want to hear your opinion though - leave a comment telling me what kinds of posts you want to see or take my reader survey!

Create a constant theme // Back in January, I did make a specific shade of pink my main color (it's the pink that highlights links and the pink you see in all of my graphics) but as I mentioned in my original goals post, this goes along with getting an entirely new layout... so not much has happened with this one.

Since I've completed some of these goals, I thought I'd set some new ones!

Collaborate With More Bloggers // I did a collab with a blogger last week, and I have one coming up next week, but I really want to work with more bloggers. If you want to collaborate, email me! I'd love to talk!

Start Doing Weekly Updates // If you haven't noticed, I've been slacking off on doing Friday Picks lately because I'm just not that interested in doing them. However, I still wanted to share the link love, but I also wanted to give y'all updates on my life. I mentioned this awhile back, and I think I'm going to start doing biweekly updates. Instead of doing Friday Picks, I think I'll do some sort of link post every other week, and I'll do a life update on the other weeks.

Post 3 Times A Week // I did this over the summer, but I cut it back to two posts after school started due to time constraints. Life is really busy right now, but I would love to start writing three posts each week once school winds down a bit.

That pretty much sums up how my blogging goals are going! I will be making another post on this in June, so stay tuned for that! As for now, enjoy your spring!

How are you doing on your blogging goals?
