Blogging Goals For July And August

As I have been thinking about how to improve my blog, I am going to try to set my self some blogging goals for each month.  I would really like to learn more about the different aspects of blogging and I think that focussing on a few goals each month will help me a lot.

Blogging Goals for July/August

Goal 1: To continue to take part in the 30 Day Blogging Challenge.

I am now on Day 6 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge #30DBBC.  It is helping me to focus on different aspect of my blogging style and is pushing me to blog more.  Lately, I have been writing less and reading a wider variety of blogs.  Blogging is a balance of reading, writing and sharing blog posts.  I think it is now time to work harder on publishing more blog posts.

Goal 2: To join in with more linkies.

I aim to join in with #WordlessWednesday, #MySundayPhoto, #ThePrompt, #TheList, #MyFavouritePost and #WotW linkies each week, at least.

Goal 3: To plan ahead.

I am going to use a blogging calendar on an Excel spreadsheet to think more about which posts I am going to publish each week so that I can get into a better routine with them.

Goal 4: To use Pinterest more to help with my blogging.

I am just starting to think more about how to use Pinterest, with regards to blogging.  I am going to join some collaborative blogging Pinterest boards to help to share my posts and to find more posts to read from other bloggers. I am going to time myself, using the stopwatch or alarm on my mobile phone though.  Spending six or so hours on Pinterest per day will not be a productive use of my time.

Goal 5: To improve the quality of my photos.

I am very lucky as my Dad has let me borrow his Cannon camera.  I call it the big camera.  I am hoping to learn more about how to use one of these ‘proper’ cameras.  I think all cameras are great but it would be wonderful to know more about the effect of different settings for shutter speed, aperture and ISO.  I would love to be able to take better photographs.  I was quite pleased with the photo I took for my #MySundayPhoto this week. I really hope that I am able to keep to these blogging goals.  I think that it will be a challenge with both my children at home all summer but we shall see what happens. What are your blogging goals for July and August?
