Absence makes the heart grow fonder right? Well I hope so anyway - as The Beaux Diaries has been a little AWOL lately. Apologies for the lack of posts recently, my life has been so hectic I just haven't had the time or energy to blog! After writing my last post on Finding Inspiration After A Blogging Rut; I literally took my own advice to take a little break a little too far..... A month later I'm back, fully motivated to kick start the blog posts with some Blogging Goals for Autumn.
Autumn is my favourite season, and after a fabulous summer here in England, I'm so ready for boots, jackets, faux fur and berry toned make up. I always feel ready for a fresh start in September and I'm looking forward to some planning some seasonal things on the ol blog and committing myself to achieving some blog goals. So first things first -
This is the one blog goal I always set myself and one I always seem to let myself down on. I'm aiming to post twice a week again. Once during the week and a post on a Sunday. I'm consistently inconsistent and this I need to change. I've spent the last week getting organised, taking photos and scheduling social media and blog posts. I'm determined to not fail at this again.
2. Improve My Instagram
Who else is peeved with this new insta set up? I feel like I've spent ages working on insta for it all to be ruined, well not ruined but it does feel like a major set back. Likes have gone down and followers have slowed. I love discovering new accounts and am always following new people plus keeping up with the new insta stories. Which by the way has really grown on me, I follow the most amazing people and love keeping up with their daily adventures. My goal before Christmas is to post everyday (OK well almost everyday) and try and hit 2K in followers, (I'm just under 1600) I know some accounts grow a few hundred a week my mines a slow burner lol.
3. Network More
I'm pretty terrible at networking lately I have a few favourite blogs that I always read without fail but I feel I need to branch out and discover a few more and make some new connections. I also am going to make a concious effort on social media to reach out a little more and ensure I promptly reply to all comments and messages. I'd love you guys to leave me some links to your blog posts or social media links in the comments so I can check them out and come say hi!
So just a few simple goals to keep me going and get back into the swing of things - What's your blogging goals for this Autumn?
Thanks for reading and sorry for the long pause between posts, thanks for sticking around - There's a new post on Edward Bess make up later in the week -
Love L xx
