525,600 Minutes of Blogging?

Do you know what today is??  It’s my Blogiversary.  (Admit it, you sang the title and the first line)

Well technical I have had this site since 2011, but I never wrote anything on it.  (I used to write a lot on my old MySpace page and at that time I was looking for a new avenue to do so…yes I still was on MySpace in 2011)  I only came back across my site because I was trying to figure out how to use Google+.  (No seriously does anyone know who to use that thing)  Well that was a whole year ago and that’s the anniversary date I want to keep.

I like most new bloggers have goals and certain milestones I want to reach.  I decided to focus on some goals and start work on them now.  As a new blogger I had no clue what I was really getting myself into.   Once I actually found started to put my content out there into the (digital) world, I can’t believe how much I’ve learned.  After about 12 months of “trying” to blog, her are a few goals I would like to accomplish in no particular order, so here it goes.

Blog Goals

1- New and Updated site/better lay out
I actually took this first step in August because my old Blogger looked like my Blackpanet page from 2001.  So I have accomplished this in some way, but there definitely still room for growth.

2- Better quality photographs
I really have no one to take my pics and I hate my tripod.   As far as object or scenery pictures, I need to update my 7.2 mega pixel Sony cyber shot and my .99 tripod and get a better camera.  Now I’m definitely not ready for a DSLR but at least a new digital with like 18 mega pixels or something

3- Find a blog niche
I know this is very important because as of right now I focus on lifestyle, traveling, city living, budgeting, dating, beauty, and fashion…uhm that’s a lot

4- Join other blog meet ups groups like this, blog hop, guest blog or collaborate

5- Datingdionne101 series
I have done a few of these already, so it’s just to continue. While you’re here check out my first post. 

6- Attend blogger conference

7- Own my own domain name
Not sure if I would stay with blogger or move to another hosting site, but its’ defiantly something consider.

8- Grow as a writer and person

9- Utilize social media to meet and network with other like-minded bloggers

10- Blogging schedule eeekkkk (include mini blogs)
I think this will be the absolute hardest thing to follow because inspiration comes and goes.

Well those are my blog goals I am going for, does any new blogger out there like to share their goals?

  1. Congrats on your milestone! I'm a relatively new blogger myself. You have some good goals. Mine are mostly the same as yours. I'm trying to work on my blog's layout and design too. Where I live there aren't really any blogging conferences to help me network. Hope you get through with all your goals though :)
