#BeBold2016 Linkup: Blogging Goals 2016

The #BeBold2016 Linkup continues, hosted by Gina, Kate, Catherine, Allie and Christina. I'll be sharing my blogging goals for this new year.

I am warning you that I am going to be completely cliche in saying that I feel like just yesterday I was writing my blogging goals for last year. And the cliches will continue as I say, this year has flown by. Even though I am guilty of writing 2015 on all of my papers, I am ready to jump into the new year with Anchored in the South!

Collaborate with Other Bloggers
Through blogging I have been able to make some amazing friends, and I don't know why I've taken so long to reach out to any of them to work together. If you're interested in collaborating, please don't hesitate to contact me via social media or email (

Write a Guest Post
I have always wanted to write a guest post, I think it would be a great way to expand my audience and collaborate with fellow bloggers!

Be Consistent with Posts
One of the struggles that I have is to be consistent with my blog posting. I don't have a set schedule but my aim is for three or four posts a week!

Grow Social Media Channels
Social media is a very important part of my blog, it allows for my blog brand to be expanded beyond just this domain. If you're not already, check me out on Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, & Snapchat @anchoreditsouth

Invest in a DSLR Camera
I find that this achievement, per say, has managed to make it onto most if not all of my wishlists or goal lists. Ever since I started blogging, photography has become a big part of my life and I hope to invest in a DSLR Camera, I've had my eye on this one.

Quality Over Quantity
Oy with the cliches already! I promise this will be the last one! With trying to be consistent with my blog posts this year I also want to remind myself to keep it quality content and avoid trying to get something up just to get something up!

Post More Blogging Tips
Last year I would try to post about different blogging tips, and I myself love reading advice from other bloggers and I hope to post more of them this upcoming year.

Build Up My Newsletter
This past December I sent out my first newsletter, sign up for it here. I've kept it to only sending it out monthly and hope to see my newsletter list multiply this year.

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

  4. These are awesome goals, Syd! I bought a DSLR last year (Nikon D3200's are the real MVP), and it was one of the best investments I've ever made!

    xo, Alison

    1. I'm glad to hear it, I have been doing a lot of research on which one I'd like to purchase:)
