Happy New Year 2017 - Blog Planner Included

 Happy New Year!

It's 2017, yes, 2017! I remember like it was just yesterday when I was saying, or typing that I couldn't believe it was 2016. If you haven't already checked out my round up post on 2016 you can have a little read at it here.
This year I really want to set myself some proper goals as I didn't do it for 2016 so I want to be on track this year and improve on as much as I possibly can. It will also be nice to keep track of where I am now and where I will be in exactly 1 years time.
My top blog goals for 2017:

* Improve my photography

* Schedule more posts

* Become more organised

* Interact a lot more on social media

* Get numbers up;

* Bloglovin - I'd like to be at 1k (currently 510)

* Twitter - I'd like to be at 2k (currently 1268)

Instagram - I'd like to be at 1k (currently 828)
 Although numbers aren't everything, it is so inspiring when you do gain more followers and people are reading your content leaving comments and following you on social media it gives such a huge confidence booster. I'm not sure if some of my numbers are unrealistic but i'm gona try my hardest this year.

In terms of getting more organised and scheduling more posts I know I had to do something to keep this on track so I've made myself a printable weekly planner which I'm going to keep on my desk and plan plan plan! I've attached the planner as a picture in this post which you can save and print but happy to send you the document if you want to amend, leave a comment below.

Let me know in the comments below what your top goals for 2017 are?
