Improving My Blog In 2020



Honestly I can't believe how quickly this year came around, 2019 felt like a flash for me. Lots of things in my life changed, whilst a lot stayed the same, but I started to pout a lot more effort into my writing because this is something that I want to pursue further. So today I thought I would share how I plan on improving this blog this year. 

A Blog Makeover 

As for the visual of my blog, I literally haven't changed it in about two years. Which is a very long time, and on my about page and even my front page there is a lot that needs to be improved and edited up. I also think that over the years that I've grown and evolved as human and that my blog should represent that. I think that I will be changing up some categories and maybe I'll even splash out on a new design; but who knows!

I genuinely love the design that I have, but I just don't think it suits me anymore.

Scheduling Content

This was something that I managed so well in October - November but unfortunately thought Christmas I worked 60-90 hours a week meaning that I had no time to write and on my days off work all I did was sleep and stuff my face with pizza and other delicious takeaways. 

I want to make sure that I'm consistently posting at least twice every week, and three times a week when possible. I feel that consistently is really key in blog growth, especially with brands (or at least it has always been in my case) and I like writing so having a better schedule would keep me in better check I think.

Branding & Niche

This year, I know are are only 10 days in, I've been thinking a-lot about how much blog represents me, I used to be heavily into Beauty and Lifestyle posts and my lifestyle now means that I'm a lot more into Films, Movies, Culture, Art and that is a very different step from that. I also post an exceptional amount of blogging/blog growth posts. With a blog makeover, I would make sure that these categories took priority and looked so much better, as these are the ones I focus on a lot,

Branding is also something that I've been thinking about an awful lot after niche, and rebranding my social media pages as they don't really represent me anymore. I also don't use instagram at all for blogging which might be something I could look into, but I absolutely loathed it the one time I did.

Pinterest

From some of my latest reading and research, there is no doubt that Pinterest is one of the most successful ways to grow your blog views and this year I plan on delving into that. If I have the time I'd love to get better with Pinterest. I've actually started to love the idea of making better blog images/graphics for Pinterest posts, which I think would just be so helpful across the board.

I've seen an awful lot of Pinterest E-Books around, but if anyone has used a particular one and loves it then please leave me a comment recommending it is!


I'd love to know if there are any particular ways you're trying to grow your blog this year, I'm trying my best not to make any numbers goals as I personally don't think that it helps me.
