Quarter 3 Blog Goals!

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

This wasn’t the greatest quarter for my blog in terms of growth and blog goals. I left WITS feeling super motivated, and then life happened. I launched a company, I was applying for new jobs and for graduate school, and the ol’ blog took a back seat. Good news though, I’m back on track now. I really missed sitting down at my computer, writing about my travels and what I was up to. So I go into the 3rd quarter of the year (sidenote, can’t believe it’s July already!) with lots of ideas and ways to spruce up Hello Megan O!

Revisiting Quarter Two Blog Goals

  1. Launch the “Hello Megan O” newsletter: Techincally, done, although I only sent it out once. I had high hopes that I would be able to do this weekly or bi-weekly, but realistically, that’s not going to happen with everything else going on in my life. I’ll be changing it to monthly going forward, and that way I can really highlight the best parts of each month. I’ll aim to send it on the 15th, so if you want in on the July issue, sign up here!
  2. Write two “evergreen” posts: Totally did not do this one. I have the ideas for them, and I did start to draft them, but given the blog hiatus (which would have been the perfect time to post them!!) they never made it from thoughts to words. Still something I plan to try to do this quarter.
  3. Complete at least 10 things on my 101 in 1001 list: I only did 5, which is pretty terrible. I will say, I did work on some of the more involved ones, (aka I watched a lot of movies on the plane to France and I did take a photo in a photo booth) but this one was still technically a fail.

Quarter Three Blog Goals!

  1. Figure out Pinterest. So many bloggers say that they get so much traffic from Pinterest, and yet this is somewhere completely untapped for me. I need to make sure each post has a pinnable image, and then actually create boards to pin my content to! I also need to get a better plug-in on the blog to make pinning easier.
  2. Pitch a company. I have a few in mind that I’d like to work with, but I need to actually send out those emails! This also means I need to make sure I keep my media kit up to date.
  3. Hit 950 followers on Instagram. Instagram is still my favourite social media, and I’ve been posting pretty consistently here in France and England, but I will have to keep the momentum going once I get home.
  4. Learn more about Asia by attending local events. Now that I’m the Asia study abroad advisor, I need to soak up as much information as I can about the countries I will be working with! Since I can’t just jet off and visit them all right now, I’m going to have to be diligent about finding the most authentic experiences I can locally!

What are your goals for the next few months?

    You might not be able to tick ten goals off of a formalized list. . . but my goodness you’ve sure been engaged in a lot of “doing” instead of just “looking” recently. I think you may have met your own goals and a few other people’s goals too!
