I'm having a little trouble being creative today.
I'm going to blame it on the weather. 

In fact I have very little to say because I have very little in my mind.
Other than college algebra.
Actually, it's sort of a breath of fresh air.
My mind is usually on high gear.
It never stops.
Which is good because if it did I'd be dead.
But it's also bad because sometimes I'd like 
to escape my thoughts.

So instead of telling you something new about my life.
I'm going to share with you my goals for this hurr blog.
Because I feel like if I'm going to share my life, 
shouldn't I also share my vision for where this little slice of the internet is headed?
Plus, I want my readers to be involved in my blog.
Like a little baby blog family.
How cute are we?!

Bloggy Goals:
{aka, our future}

  1. Post on a more regular basis.
    Ideally, I'd like to post daily, but some days I'm out of things to say.
    Or I am too busy or tired.
    Ya know, life just gets in the way some times.

  2. Do my first giveaway
    This is one I've wanted to do for a while.
    But I've got no idea what to giveaway, nor how to set up a giveaway.

  3. Include pictures in all of my posts
    I just got my new camera which I love and have constantly been snapping pictures
    so really I have no excuse for my lack of pictures.

  4. Start promoting myself
    I've known all along that followers don't just appear.
    However, sometimes I forget that I do need to promote myself and get my name out in the world.

  5. Figure out how to get people to click "follow"
    This sort of goes hand-in-hand with numero four, but promoting myself and getting people to find me is one thing, getting them to follow, that's a whole other story.

  6. Keep in mind that I blog for me
    Sometimes I feel like that I have to write about certain things in order to appeal to readers. I know this isn't true, but I just put some pressure on myself occasionally to write things when I don't know what it is that I want to say. I just want to keep in mind that it's my blog and I'm the one writing so I should be doing it for me. That's the whole point, right?
That's all I've got for now.
And you know the moment I finish writing this, 
I'll think of like a million more. 
That's just how the world works.

In a completely unrelated thought,
am I the only one who sometimes forgets I'm wearing pants?
I was just sittin' here typing away and all the sudden felt naked 
from the waste down.
It's normal, right?!
I mean, I can't be the only one with this problem.

Look at you with all your goals :) It can be tough trying to get your name out there but it doesn't have to be! What I do is link up with other bloggers quite regularly as well as try to offer my hand at being a co host for whatever the opportunity maybe! Of course there is advertising and that does do the trick, but than you also have twitter which I use as a twitter bomb to sale my blog and it's happenings! Good luck and before you know it, you'll not be able to keep up with your own blog. :)

Happy Tuesday!

Those are great goals! Definitely the way way I've gotten the most lasting followers is through constantly visiting new blogs that are similar to mine and commenting. Giveaways will definitely get you followers, but building relationships with other bloggers usually provides more involved readers in my experience. Like Breanna mentioned above, blog linkups are great opportunities to meet new bloggers! Also, you could also other bloggers to do a button swap with you to get free advertising! Hope this helps :)
