My 2016 Goals

Hey lovelies! Since the year of 2015 is nearly over I thought I would do a post on My 2016 Goals : as I think 2016 could be my year after the kind of bad year that 2015 has brought me. These goals are for my Blog, YouTube and Personal Goals.



This is the current blog that I'm using : I am so happy with the way this blog is going in 2015 which it was launched in October 2015. For the year 2016, I really want to bring this blog further then I've ever gone with a blog - I want to go self hosted and design my own layout etc. I also want to be able to upload five to six days a week for the first few months of 2016.
I also would love to reach 100,000 views on this blog in the next year : as the current stats that I'm getting are going amazingly. 


I honestly don't know what direction I want to go with this blog : I think I might be finished with it and just concentrate on ThatS0Bekaah a lot more and just delete or unpublish the whole blog as I haven't done much with it. You never know : something might happen in the future but for the moment nothing's going to happen.


For my blog's itself : I would love to attend more blogger events around Ireland and possibly the United Kingdom, if all goes to plan. I've attended a good few this year but next year I want to be able to go to a lot more.
In 2015, I was nominated for 3 blogging awards but I didn't win, I was delighted to be nominated but in 2016 I would love to win just one blogging award!


With my main channel, I really want to take it to the next step in the YouTube world. I am going to try my best to upload twice a week depending on what's going on and where I am : two proper videos a week on this channel. This channel will not be doing Vlogs but I do have a second channel for that.
My subscriber goal for 2016 has to be 2,000 without a doubt : I am currently either just under 500 or just above and that was without uploading constantly, so I'm hoping with uploading constantly my subscribers will just increase with the good content!

This is my new vlog channel where I will be uploading once a week : I'll be doing weekly vlogs for you all depending on what's going on, there could be more than one vlog each week as if I'm going to an event that will be a separate vlog. 
I haven't done much with this channel but in 2016 it'll be the best out there... I hope! I am aiming to get to 500+ subscribers on this channel by the end of 2016 but it's only my second channel so it's just for fun!


I would really love to reach 20,000 followers by the end of 2016 : I'm currently at 14.1k so it's not really that far off the mark. I'm aiming low with my Twitter because with Twitter it can be a little bit hit and miss!

I haven't really done much with my Instagram in 2015 but in 2016, I really want to get back into it as I love Instagram for a number of different reasons. I would love to reach 2,000 followers on Instagram but wouldn't mind if I didn't reach it.

Even though this is like my 3rd like page since people keep on hacking my pages! My aim for this page is to get over 3,000 likes by the end of 2016 even though it's only brand new but FaceBook is one of the bigger drives of my views to my blog.



I really want to do a little bit of travelling in 2016. I really want to go to Disneyland Paris in April with #YouTubersxBloggers and then really want to go to Cologne in Germany! 


I want to get pretty fit in the year 2016. I will be hoping to walk two to six km a day 6 days a week and then go swimming once a week. I'm aiming to become a size 8 again in most of my clothes but realistically, I'll probably only reach a size 10. I am now currently a size 12-14.


As some of you may know, we got a puppy about 3 weeks ago. He's a labrador retriever and he's currently 1 years of age. We've started to train him but in 2016, I am hoping to do dog agility with him because he totally has the mindframe to do it and his breed say's it all.


I am hoping to volunteer at an animal rescue centre or with a charity : once or twice a month for each month of 2016. The charities have not been decided but I have an idea on what one's I want to do!

  1. I love setting goals; I definitely think I should look at this for my blog as well, it can help give you focus. Good luck with achieving them in 2016 :)

  2. Wow, lots of goals! But I love the idea of listing them like this - I think I need to draw up something similar as well. My YouTube started pretty well (for what I wanted) and has been sadly neglected for the last few months...

  3. you sound like you've got a definite plan, best of luck x

  4. It's so great (and motivating) to see bloggers goals! I attend a lot of blogger events and you've definitely got to get more involved! ;)

  5. What a great set of goals, I love the blog ones j think I will write some down for myself in my planner when it arrives :)!! 100000 views would be amazing! Long long way off for me though!

  6. These are great goals, I wish you luck with them all! I need to set myself some goals for the new year, I can't believe how close it is.

  7. They are great goals and I haven't even begun to think about mine for 2016 x

  8. You have great goals and plans. I am terrible with sitting down and putting plans and goals on paper. I need to try this sometime. Good luck in all of your goals! <3 LifeAsLex

  9. Lots of great goals there, sounds like 2016 is going to be a very very busy year for you! Your travel plans sound amazing :) I find facebook to the best traffic driver for my blog too xx

  10. My goals are to grow my Social Media accounts and to get better with scheduling ahead of time!

  11. I completely understand with how you feel about your other blog - it can get really hard juggling two different blogging sites. And, you're going to have so much fun with your lab. I LOVE labs.

  12. This inspires me to write my own blog goals. There's something about putting it down on paper that is motivating. Thanks :)

  13. I love setting goals and reading others' goals. I also want to go on more blogging events this year!

  14. WOW. good luck with all your goals. I don't even want to think about setting my goals for next year. I should really start planning for next year though, it's not far away now. ♥ HWY29
