Goals For The Future

There’s always room for improvement, so I want to share my goals for the future with y’all.

Apply for sponsorships consistently. Embarrassingly, almost all of my July brand partnerships happened because brands reached out to me. I only call it embarrassing because I could be making more money if I was more diligent!

Post more frequently. Isn’t this everyone’s goal? But really, I want to put this journalism degree to use and churn out content at a steady rate.

Increase affiliate earnings. Truthfully, I’ve stopped using LIKEtoKNOW.it primarily out of laziness and haven’t posted in a very long time. I know that you darling people shop my links when I share them (which is an incredible way to support this blog, so thank you) and I want to be more consistent.

Switch to WordPress. I love Squarespace’s intuitiveness, but I’m reaching a point where it’s limiting. With WordPress, I’ll have more control over SEO and have the option to include native advertisements on my site. This switch will probably happen in November.

Most importantly, I think — I still really enjoy this! It’s only been nine months, but I still worried that I’d burn out and drop this. Thankfully, I’m only becoming more excited about blogging and the days ahead. I’m excited, and I hope you stick around to see what happens!
