2016 End-Of-Year Blog Summary

Hello, 2017!

A big HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone! I really do wish you all the best for the coming year. I have to say, 2016 just completely flew by in a flash with no idea where it has gone.

2016 has been a pretty tough year in places thanks to some personal issues which I have talked about here before; the main one being Mr J’s depression and anxiety diagnosis. It’s definitely a rollercoaster for both Mr J and I but I’m happy to be here to support him through this tough time. Making progress is the main thing and it is great to see him starting to gain some of his focus back. It is still a long way to go though.

Tough times aside, there were some great times in 2016. I set up Nikkipedia over on Blogger in February, which was a big deal for me and then I moved it over to WordPress in July, which was an even bigger deal! I feel like my blog is getting to be what I always saw it to be when I envisaged starting up. I may not have the best blog and I may not get the views that others get, but I am happy that at least someone is reading what I have to say. Even one view makes a difference for me. Each view that I get on the posts about asthma, depression and anxiety is one person who I could have helped a little with my writing.

When I started Nikkipedia, I didn’t have any goals in mind for how I wanted it to go. However, now that I’ve been blogging for almost a year, I think it is time for some goals.

Goals For 2017

When I started Nikkipedia, I had never given a thought to what goals I should try to achieve. I have decided that with a new year, I should set myself some goals… Much like new year’s resolutions. I don’t want to overload myself with goals, so I’ve decided to just set a handful. Here are my 6 goals for 2017.

  1. Increase my page views by 100%
  2. Increase blog followers by at least 50% (49 on 31 December 2016)
  3. Post at least 20 posts per month
  4. Self-promote in a wider range of places
  5. Bring back my weekly blog series’ (Fudge’s Diary and Sunday Showcase)
  6. Connect with fellow bloggers more

As you can see, the stats that I have aren’t a massive amount like some bloggers get. Although, I feel that the stats I do have are a great achievement for me. I’m pretty happy about that. All these stats are only applicable since I moved from Blogger to WordPress in July.

Looking forward to what 2017 holds for Nikkipedia.

Do you have any suggestions for me or feedback on my blog? I’d love to hear your opinions. Feel free to get in touch.

Best Wishes
