2017 Goals Check in - 2 Weeks Later

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Mid January blog goals check in

·         Consistency – This hasn’t really happened yet. I’ve only been blogging once or twice a week and I’ve not found what works for me re-post days yet.
    • Plan of action: Get some posts scheduled and pick the days for posting
·         Engagement &Readership – This I’ve done. I’ve got better scheduling posts and I’m joining in comment hops etc to promote my blog. I’ve been getting comments and I’ve been replying to comments.
    • Plan of action: carry on

·          Replying to Comments – So far, I’m up to date. I’ve been trying to reply within 48 hours and I’m using my tram journeys to do some social media admin type work.
·          Build my audience – I’ve almost hit my January targets for followers which is amazing. I now need to make sure these people are watching and like what I put out
    • Plan of action: Look at YT analytics to see what people like and engage with.
·          Reduction in posting – I had decided to only post twice a week but I’ve had enough videos to put three up a week so far and will have for all of January.
    • Plan of action: Aim for 2 a week but 1 or 3 is fine

Social Media
·         ·         Growth – I have set targets for the end of 2017. I did this by looking at my average growth for the past two years, then in most cases round up to the next nearest 50 or 100. I then got all geeky and broke down work out the numbers I need to grow by on each platform by months to meet the targets and I’m splitting it down further to weekly targets. On everything apart from YouTube I’ve already (as of 15th January 2017,) exceeded my target for January. So as long as I don’t lose too many followers I can concentrate on some of the other areas such as joining in Twitter chats.
    • Plan of action: carry on as I have been doing.
·         ·         Google Plus – I have been using G+. I have been +1’ing posts. Sharing my posts in communities. Trying to leave comments on there. I have also been sharing scheduled messages to it.
    • Plan of action: Look up some G+ etiquette guide lines.  
·         ·         Interaction – I do feel like I’ve had a pretty good week for interacting. I haven’t taken part in twitter chats but I have been responding to comments and commenting back so I’m happy.
    • Plan of action – Join in some twitter chats

·         ·         See my friends more – I haven’t seen anyone yet, but I’ve got a weekend away booked in March & plans to go to a wedding with another friend and a tentative date booked in for January payday
    • Plan of action: Firm up a date for meeting up.
·         ·         Go back to the gym – Nope, nada nothing to see here.
    • Plan of action: Go to the bloody Gym!
·         ·         New Job – No even looked yet
    • Plan of action: Google Jobs Manchester.
·         ·         Read more – I’ve read a book so far it was from Net Gally
·         ·         Start a 2nd blog- I had already done this and I’ve done 2 posts so far.
    • Plan of action: Write some more posts
