Blogging & Social Media Goals For 2020
Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing my blogging & social media goals for 2020! My last post I wrote about my goals for the year here but now I want to focus on the social media side of it all. I made specific goals and what my plans are for the year with everything online. So here are all my blogging & social media goals for 2020 and what I want to achieve.

Find a blog theme I truly like
I still want to find a blog theme I love. I don’t know if I should buy another, hire a designer or what but I want a new blog design and maybe switch up my branding. Hopefully by the end of the year I will have one I truly fall in love with and happy with.
Respond to blog comments more often
This is a big one for me. I love reading your comments and they truly make my day whenever I get a new one but I want to sit down and respond as soon as I read one. I want to be better at it instead of just reading it and thanking you out loud. So leave some comments and I promise to reply this year.
Pitch to brands I love
Last year I was terrible with my blog income and didn’t make as much as my previous years. Since not many brands have approached me I want to approach them and pitch them more. I’m going to start with my favorite brands and work from there. I want to work with my favorite brands and that leads me to my next goal.
Grow my income
I want to double my income and make it a more predominate of my income. I started being a lot better with my affiliate links and stuff like that so that is a start. I might try other outlets as well like selling or something like that. I need to be more specific so I want to make $1,000 online this year and hopefully I achieve it.
Get on a PR list
I don’t think I have been on one before. I have received products from brands in the past but nothing constant. I want to be able to get a pr kit of a new launch. I have always thought it was so cool and I’m hoping I can get onto a PR list and get some stuff I truly like.
Update my old content
I have been meaning to do this for so long and this year I will make the effort. I see a lot of my old posts come up on my analytics and I love that my old posts are still relevant and getting read. I want to updated them and see if I can make them more SEO friendly.
Look into copyright my blog
The only reason this isn’t a do it kind of goal is because I have n clue how to do it and if it is possible. Once I find out more than I can make it a goal to copyright it next year or if I do get enough info then I might start this year. I did that before when I was thinking of moving over to WordPress and I did it a couple months into my goal and maybe that will happen with this. If you have any info about this then let me know.
Get organized & create a content schedule and stick to it
Last blog goal is to get my butt organized and create a schedule and stick to it. This one is very specific and I know I can get it done once I put my mind into it. I am going to use all my resources to get it done like write it down and list things. This is a goal for all my social medias so I want to create a full content schedule and stick to that.
Reach 1k subscribers on Youtube
This has been on my goal list for the past 2 years and I truly want to grow and build up this platform. That means I can monetize my channel again and that would be great. So if you haven’t followed me already then please subscribe here.
Vlog more in public
I am always so scared to do it but in December during Vlogmas I was vlogging in public a bit more than usual. I know I can do it but being so shy and stuff really puts me off. I know I live in LA and no one really cares or even stares but I can’t seem to get through. I hope to get more confident and start to vlog while I’m out.
Try to stick to a video schedule
I think this is one of the harder goals. I am not that good with sticking to a Youtube schedule. I’m pretty good with sticking to my three times a week here on the blog but sometimes weekly uploads for Youtube I struggle with. Yeah I take a break with my blog once in a while but it is more consistent. My ideal schedule for putting out videos this year is twice a week on Tuesday & Fridays. I know I can do it as I filmed and uploaded everyday straight for almost a whole month so two times a week doesn’t seem to bad. If not than maybe just once. I just want to stick to my upload days.
Get creative with my editing
I fell in love with editing during December and I want to get more creative and find a new style. I want to get more advance too and play around with effects and stuff so hopefully I can get into that and teach myself more techniques.
Create videos I’m inspired to make
This last one is important to me. I want to create videos that mean something to me and truly inspire me to get it done and put it out into the world. I was doing that during Vlogmas and enjoyed it so much so if I can make inspiring videos and make someone smile with my content than I accomplished that.
Do more Instastory vlogs
These are so fun to watch and I love ending my day and watching everyone’s instastory about their life. I know mine is boring and I don’t get up to much but I want to get more into sharing my BTS of my life no matter how mundane it is from what I’m doing in the moment or what I’m eating because honestly I love sharing my food on there. I will watch everyone’s story almost on my feed who I follow and sometimes it is so simple and they are doing the most boring thing and I’m entertained so I hope to do the same.
Don’t be too harsh about not posting
I have times where I post everyday and post multiple pictures and some days I don’t post anything and it will go a few days. Sometimes I think it is such a chore to post and I don’t want to feel that way and then I feel disappointed in myself that I don’t post so I hope to break that this year and not feel guilty about posting or not posting.
Try not to get caught up an stick to a perfect theme
I am so caught up with having everything match. I do that with my fashion and my room and my life all the time even my Instagram feed gets in the middle and I have to have that match perfectly too. Don’t get me wrong I love when everything matches including my feed but it gets me so stressed out and I don’t want to post. I just want to kick the habit and not get so torn up about it this year.
Join an Instagram giveaway
I get so intrigued about this so I think I might try one this year.Honestly I’m willing to try anything to grow my Instagram following which leads me to my next goal which is how big I want to grow it.
Grow my following to 5,000
I know the numbers aren’t everything but if I can reach 5k than that would be amazing. If I can reach that number then it’s all I want. It’s a small number to some but a big number to me and if I can get anywhere near it and grow my following than let’s hope by the end of the year I will get there.
All The Other Social Medias
Grow my social media presence
I have a love/hate relationship with social media and sometimes I am on it all the time and some days I don’t care. I want to grow my social media and make more of an impact and be more present on all my socials.
Get my traffic up on all platforms
That leads to my next goal of driving more traffic to my social medias. I want everywhere to have my numbers go up and see more people engaging with my content. I also would like to go up and stay up as it is so discouraging when it goes down so here is to getting more people to see my socials.
Schedule tweets to promote blog posts
This is what I always forget to do. I need to start this again as I was really good before but now not so much. I need to find a good app or site to help me as well so it can go up automatically to share my blog posts or videos. I just want to start promoting my content on all my platforms to get it put out there and seen. Let’s hope to me tweeting more and promoting all my content and scheduling it to go up in 2020.
Get back to Pinterest
I already started this and I am loving it. I don’t know why I stopped as it is such an inspiring platform and there are so many fun things there. I also heard it is a great way to build my blog traffic so hopefully I can get my following up on there and drive it to here. I bought a course to help with that and I’m excited to put it to good use. Please follow my Pinterest here if you haven’t already and want to see what I’m inspired by and other blog related things.
Be more of an influencer/blogger
Honestly, I don’t feel like I’m a very good blogger or influencer. I know I shouldn’t compare or try to be like everyone else but I don’t even try to do any of that stuff. I don’t know if this is a real goal or not or I really don’t understand this and just made it a last goal but I want to try and be more influential. I feel like I’m not and I want to stick out and be my own kind of blogger so here is to 2020 where I try and be more of an influencer and try to do more things related to one.
Overall, I don’t want to make a big deal if I don’t do what I say. I’m taking this as a guide to help me and to visually see what I want and get done this year with my social media.
I’m always blogging with loungewear on so you can shop my pajama bottoms here as well as most things in the picture I have linked for you.
Those were my blogging & social media goals for 2020! I hope they inspired you and got you motivated if you too are a blogger/influencer/content creator whatever you call yourself. I think mine made sense and I tried to make the achievable and specific so I can get it done this year. I like I can visually see each one and get a sense of what I want. Let me know if you have any blogging & social media goals for 2020 as I’d ove to know what’s on your list. Thanks for reading! xo
