I see a lot of people writing out their goals. By writing out your goals with a date that you would achieve them by will give you the base to work towards the goals. I have yet to write out my goals mostly because I have not really been focusing on me. And it is about time I start…
Twitter was the easiest for me to get into and be very engaging. I am literally amazed on how fast I grew in followers. So far I have a little over 400 followers. I do my part to support and be as engaging as possible. I love to communicate and meet others. When I follow someone its because I like what they write and I want to support them. Yes, I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t want them to follow back and read what I have written. Also I am inclined to believe that 75 percent of those who follow me are only doing so for their own personal gain. Regardless, like I said I follow because I like what they write or their pictures that they post or just their tweets in general. I have actually made a tweet about how I have been so busy reading the works/tweets of others not to mention constantly sharing that I have been slacking on my own work. All fine since I have always loved to help and support others. But if I had ever want to make any kind of money or career out of this then time to work on MINE! My goal is to have at least 600 followers for the month of June. https://twitter.com/coffeemom87
Instagram is fun. I love posting pictures. If I had my way that is all I would do-take, edit and post. Pictures of nature and the stuff that I bake with my kids. I have been doing a lot of reading as to how Instagram with help me with my blogs, still not understanding. My Instagram itself has been kind of slow but still I have a good 74 followers. So as far as a goal for the month of June I think I will set it for at least 100. https://www.instagram.com/cofemom8/?hl=en
Pinterest is something that I have absolutely no understanding. My family is so addicted to pinterest. I took one look and saw no point on this at all. Pinning recipes, ideas, pictures.. And now here I am reading yet again how Pinterest ties into blogging. I have people telling me not to focus to much on this one and them I have others saying how its important and plays a big part on getting attention to your website. Right now I have around 27 people following me on this one. I don’t know if that is good progress or not but little is better then nothing. I have still a lot of work to do on it but I think I will be good to make my goal for this to be around 80 by the end of June. https://www.pinterest.com/coffeemom80106/
I hate Facebook! It has been the hardest social media site for me to get anywhere with. I post and try to keep active but it has been real difficult when absolutely no one I follow or like even acknowledges me. Its almost like it is completely one sided. I follow you and share yours. Not to mention like a lot. I might get into the Facebook again at a later time but for right now I will just let it go. Not working for me and not helping me. Just getting me frustrated.
I have been working hard on my wordpress. I think I found a theme I like but still looking as to which one I would like to stay with for a while. I am sure I still have a lot of things to learn on how to improve my site but everything takes time especially for someone who has never done anything like this before. I like how I can just read other people blogs without having to go through social media sites such as twitter. I can follow the ones I like and well so far I have at least 69 people following me back. And again as with anything else there are followers who follow for the follow. But I will make it yet again clear if follow you its because I genuinely like what you write. My goal for workpress is 120.
These of course are only my goals as far as followers go. I still have plenty to learn when it comes to my writing. Since I mostly do subscription boxes I need to take better pictures. But I do love the pictures with my dog Shelby. I am sure that I need to work on being more descriptive. Some of the items I don’t want to open and test because they are things I know I cant use and would not want to give them away any opened or used items.
I need to have my goals written down in my notebook. I need to write out a schedule as to when I will work each social media platform( which includes reading blogs & engaging with others), and when to write and post stuff of my own. I have a long way to go but I will go and do it!
