What Are Your Blogging Goals for 2016?

A new year, a new set of resolutions. Writers and artists on WordPress.com tell us their most important goals for 2016.

Drawing by Russell Jackson, Draw the Public

You may not bother with resolutions for the new year, but setting goals for your blog helps you to (re)focus and shape your online home. We asked a diverse mix of bloggers:

What’s the most important goal you have for your site in 2016?

Lisa Jakub, lisajakub.net

My resolution is very simple and not so easy: I want to create work that tells the truth. Writing, for me, is all about connection, and nothing creates connection like open-hearted honesty. It’s about putting letters and spaces together in a way that reaches out and allows all of us to feel less alone. It’s about finding our commonalities and celebrating our individual authenticity. And if we can laugh about it in the process  — even better.

Emily J. Petersen, The Bookshelf of Emily J.

My goal for my blog in 2016 is to re-personalize it! I started out by writing about my memories and experiences as they connected with books, and I’ve gotten away from that. I’m working on a PhD and finishing my dissertation this year, so I’ve become preoccupied. My book reviews tend to be just that: book reviews. I think what made my blog special in the beginning were the stories I told about my life as they related to books.

So in 2016, I plan to make my posts more personal, more engaging, and more sincere. I read a lot of books, but I’d rather write about my personal reaction or connection to a book than repeat the plot line. I think this personalization will help me to reconnect with my loyal readers and to find new ones. I love the community aspects of blogging, so I hope to reinsert myself there by sharing who I am and opening up more.

Sam Nathapong, Sam in Bangkok

Sam Nathapong wants to share your tales of Bangkok.

Sam Nathapong wants to share your tales of Bangkok.

I’m interested in free speech in 2016. Bangkok, Thailand, has been under the military government for more than a year, since the May 2014 coup. The military junta has created a climate of fear among us, from small bloggers to journalists and academics all over the country.

My blog is small, so I’m not trying to be all Katniss Everdeen about it — and Bangkok is far more than what is described as The Hunger Games’ District 12. On Twitter, it feels especially tense for those of us writing in the English language from Thailand. But with this global language, I want to reach more people and let them know that there are still reasons to smile under such conditions — and to tell my own part of this story.

Bangkok is still rich in culture, and we have so many visitors each year. I believe that everyone has their own unique Bangkok story inside of them, and my goal is to reach out to these people. My door is open if they have a story to tell.

In 2016, I want Sam in Bangkok to be a blog where we can share and discover stories about Bangkok — freely.

Summer Pierre, Paper Pencil Life

summer pierre

New for 2016: an online comics course from Summer Pierre.

I have always been a conflicted blogger, feeling slightly apologetic for keeping what can seem an indulgently personal project in a public forum. Yet after this year of feeling more connected than ever to a growing audience, due to telling my imperfect and personal stories, it hit me: Who am I kidding? I love my blog. If it weren’t for my blog I would have never tried half of what I’ve done. It is both my lab and my studio, and although I might have made comics and written essays without it, I doubt I’d ever have felt as connected to people on such a consistent personal level through my work.

Without my blog, I would never have come up with my latest endeavor: teaching an online class on comics in the New Year. The class is a direct extension of everything I’ve made on my blog and feels like a natural progression as an artist on WordPress. I feel more excited than ever to continue to tell my own story through words and pictures, and to extend the reach by helping others tell their own. What could be better?

Blog resolutions for 2016, by Russell Jackson at Draw the Public.

Samara Speaks, A Buick in the Land of Lexus

In 2016, I would like to parlay my blog into a successful freestyle rap career and share my rhythmic wisdom across the globe. Sadly, I have zero rapping skills. Can I change my answer?

For 2016, I would like to actually HAVE goals. For two years I’ve flown by the seat of my pants. (What does that even MEAN? Sounds painful.)

The grown-up bloggers set goals. They use editorial calendars and blog organizers. Blog organizers? I can’t even find a clean bra. Check my Google Analytics? I get lost at Walmart.

I’m reasonably intelligent, but blog tech jargon makes me hyperventilate. Someone says, “determine a niche to develop your overall SEO strategy.” I hear, “Blerghity blergh blergh.”

Did you know Pinterest can be used to drive traffic to your blog? Do you know what custom CSS is? Bounce rate? Meta tags?

Samara's goal is to remain goalless. It works for her, after all.

Samara‘s goal is to remain goalless.

Did you know that the Amish are a real culture of people and not just an old-timey group of actors who are just really into it? Do you realize that our presidential elections are basically a national scam and we’d be better off electing a God of Cake?

So, for 2016, my big goal is to SET GOALS.

Guess what? I checked with Lady Google, and only 8 percent of goals are ever met. If seven of us are answering this question, only .56 of us are going to meet our goals. Not even ONE WHOLE PERSON!

Maybe winging it IS the way to go. I’m not rich or famous. But I must be doing something right, because I have the coolest blog family on the planet. The people who read my blog make it what it is. I don’t have to change a thing.

So, I guess my goal is to remain goalless. I am, after all, a non-conformist. Just like everyone else.

J.S. Park, jsparkblog.com

Every blog can hit a stride, and then the pressure’s on. With enough diligence, dark roast, and in-brain mud-wrestling over the perfect click-worthy title, we can get what we always wanted: a steady stream of readers.

The problem is we try to duplicate lightning in a bottle, and we hold too many bottles, and we stretch ourselves thin with thunder. Either the blog will turn into Swiss cheese, or we will. Or in my case, both.

For devout atheist-turned-skeptical pastor J.S. Park, blogging in 2016 will mean slowing down.

For devout atheist-turned-skeptical pastor J.S. Park, blogging in 2016 means slowing down.

I rode a wave this year that culminated in the best blog performance since I started 15 years ago, with a tsunami surge of clicks over the summer. But it came at the cost of my restless desperation. I had to write on everything. I had to have an opinion. I had to ride the momentum to rapture.

I knew it was bad when I thought, I can’t stop now. I thought stopping meant quitting, and quitting in my Eastern Asian world is harakiri by pen. 

My posts became passive-aggressive, choppy, less coherent and thoughtful. I got emails that said, “Sounds like it’s been rough lately, sorry.”

Their concern broke through. I had to rest.

I treat rest like an annoying pause-button before I get back to work, but rest is the living actual life that makes the work make sense. I forget to enjoy and cherish the downtime: which isn’t really downtime, but real time. I forget to remove myself from stats and post schedules to live life itself, so that I can have something to say at all. And I had to quit superimposing those moments into social media, to just let them breathe without an obligation to post them.

Rest is the room to breathe.

My hope is to write less and live more. Rest more and write better. Be still in the balcony and regain perspective. It’s this space that cultivates creativity, for better thoughts, and more thunder.

We wish all of you a Happy New Year — and can’t wait to see what you create in 2016.

    It has been very encouraging to read other bloggers goals for 2016,for me though the over all goal has always been and continue to be improving my writing skills. I can say over the past year there has been a tiny bit of improvement which I would like to build on. My one goal for 2016 is to make sure I write posts which other fellow bloggers will find worth reading. I also want to make my blog site more inviting by improving the way I write posts. I want to continue to be authentic which is about sharing my life encounters as honesty as possible. Over and above responding to daily posts prompts I want to write my own posts from my experiences.

      My goals for writing in 2016 include writing more often and getting past the writer’s block I have because I think too much about the responses to my writing. I need focus in my writing (so I think) and have not used my blog to work that out. If you look in the dictionary under the upheaval, you just might see my picture. This year has defined upheaval for me. I had a goal to move, get situated and write. I even signed up for the Blogging and Writing courses and couldn’t get consistent because of life events. As I write this, I see that I can just write a daily post about the things that are going on in my life. If nothing else, it will bring the consistency and help me get focused. Another of my goals is to set my domain name and have a couple different blogs for the things I am passionate about at this point in my life. So there you have it. I do have to give kudos to WordPress though. It is my writing forum of choice right now and I would like to take advantage of all the features and options it has for us bloggers!

I want to better my blog lay out throughout 2016, as I am still learning about it. I would like to influence writers around me and make a positive impact on their life. Blogging is a great hobby to have and I am more than blessed to be able to. If it wasn’t for that spontaneous day in July of 2015, I wouldn’t be blogging.

    I’ve been blogging since late 2010, but not in prolific quantity of posts.
    2016 hopes:

    1. Still blog at least 1-2 times per month.
    2. Find a new free theme to change present. But it needs to meet certain (picky) criteria. Still looking/procrastinating.
    3. Try an interview for a post. Would be another blogger that has similar core subject interests. (Already have someone in mind.)
    4. Keep balance between blogging and my other interests.

    I don’t really know what my blog’s goals for 2016 will be yet, but let’s just say that I’m gonna try to make it a better blog than ever before.

    I’m gonna try to use more pictures in my blog posts. That way, I can tell you exactly what my blog posts will be about.

    I introduced three new features to my blog last summer. I try to use them together in the same week, but I may space them out a little bit … and I may use one of my blog’s features every week, whenever I can.

    Back in October, I added a fourth feature to my blog to celebrate my 30th birthday, which is coming up in May. It’s called “Joseph’s Road To His 30th Birthday” … and I will be using this feature until late April.

    A few weeks ago, I wrote a two-part blog post entitled “Joseph’s Outtakes.” In it, I talked about two pictures that I took my mistake. I may turn it into a regular feature in 2016.

    My goal for 2016 is to make a living from blogging! If I could earn a good income from my blogging I could give up my current full time job, to stay at home and pound the keyboard to make a living.

    I have only been on Word Press for a short time, and I have started to make friends on this site. I enjoy the interaction and supportive comments from other bloggers. So I guess another goal would be to continue to communicate with my blogging friends and to not neglect them.

    I joined Blogging 101 and didn’t do a whole lot of the set activities as I was busy elsewhere in my life. I would like to prioritise my life and make writing a higher priority.

    Oh and I saw that somebody posted they wanted 300 followers. I would be happy with 50 people following my blogs. There you go, a few goals for my blogging web site.

    I’ll run a monthly challenge called “The Changing Seasons”. I’ve been running it through 2015 too, but for 2016 it’ll be with a twist so that you can capture the seasonal changes in photos, or you can dig into your creative side and come up with your own interpretation of the seasons (creating photos, recipes, paintings or whatever you prefer).

    As I have removed all other social media platforms I will continue improving my blog. The goal is to include some more topics to cover and use more photos. Probably not the most measurable goal, but it should be easy to if I am closing in on that goal or not

    Great stuff! My goal is to keep my blog fresh and interesting, It can be easy after a couple of years and a couple of hundred posts to lapse into laziness and, basically, reproduce the same post in a variety of different ways. I intend to keep a close eye on how original i’m being, and develop my blog creatively.

    My goal is to write four or five posts at my blog a week. And it would make me happy if I get more viewers and repliers. And I like to get more creative with photos and galleries. I write about cheating and infidelity, remarriage, betrayal, nannygate etc. Happy holidays from http://faithfulwoman4youwordpresscom.wordpress.com And I hope you all reach your goals!!!

    My goal for 2016 is to double the number of people who’ve read and drawn inspiration from my blog since I started blogging. Thus, through my blog, thousands of people should get inspiration and realize their goals in 2016.

      I’m a brand new blogger also. I’m with you on maintaining interest in blogging. I should have mentioned that as one of my goals. I was reading a really credible post claiming that to get noticed in the blogosphere you have to produce content ideally between 300 and 400 words on a regular basis. That’s a big task when you work full time and manage two advertising campaigns for a book. I hope I can stay motivated.

    Gonna level with you lot here,
    I actually feel so lost after reading this.
    I’m not sure on my blogging goals… Should I be thinking of this?! I mean I obviously have hopes and visions for my blog but at the moment they are just fleeting thoughts in my head.
    I guess if I had to pick one thing right now it would be to have more imagination when it comes to writing posts and with my recipes??
    who knows :s

    I’m a terrible writer and I hope blogging will develop my writing skills. I write mostly about my oddball life and things I found interesting, funny, crazy or embarrassing. I hope to write something that more people could appreciate. That woulde for the sake of getting a point across.

    What are your blogging goals? As far as I am concerned, I want to grow and to change. Like Neil Young used to sing: “I want to live, I want to give”. My blog is not about him, rather about volunteer work for and with and refugees. Some of it is in English languiage, some parts in German. Your feedback is welcome.

    I just created a new blog. I am in beauty industry so I hope to see women growing in these 2 aspects.
    1. External – becoming more beautiful by taking care of themselves and being well groomed.
    2. Internal – grow to discover and love who they really are.

    As a beginner blogger, with less that three posts, my goals are pretty basic. I liked the way writing was described in the first few paragraphs of this post as “all about connections”. My hope is that I can connect with writers of the same interests and absorb knowledge from their experience. By the end of 2016 I want to create blogs with content noticed by the blogosphere and linked to my military memoire “Term of Service”.
