Something I’ve been thinking a lot about recently is how to make my blog more successful. Since going self-hosted, I’ve been determined to make my blog more successful, so here are some of my goals for my blog!
Monetize my blog and content
Alongside my blog, I have three separate Instagram accounts (my main pink account, a personal/spam account, and a photography account), and I am hoping to make some form of money off both my blog and Instagram this year. I’m thinking of selling some stock photos on Etsy or on deviantART, and I’m hoping to think of some ideas to either make an ebook or another online resource. As much as I love making pretty pink photos, Blush & Peony does require money to run and a lot of time in order to potentially become a side hustle for me.
Grow my following
I basically took this year to really start over with Instagram and my blog by going self-hosted on WordPress and by deleting inactive followers on Instagram, which brought my following back down to 100. Now that I have my following up again to just over 200 followers, I’m determined to grow that following slowly but steadily. I have found Instagram and Tiktok the most supportive places to be as several people have sent me encouraging words after my father passed away last year and some other life events. There are some ways that I plan on growing my following:
-Posting on all social media consistently
-Making beautiful photos
-Making one Tiktok per day
Write about different topics
This blog has slowly turned from a beauty and lifestyle blog to a haul blog and I would like to introduce more beauty content. I have taken to rewriting some blog posts, and I hope to write more lifestyle pieces in order to offer an insight into my life. I would also like to introduce some content about how to save money, and how to budget as well as I feel like writing about it will help me sort that bit of my life out. I would also like to share some of the finds that I find at some of my local shops (*cough*my Homegoods and Marshall’s finds*cough*).
What are some ways you plan on improving your blog?
