September Goals :: Blog Evaluation

I've been doing rather good lately blogging nearly every day in August, providing original content.  I've been a very good blogger, if I do say so myself.

But I have been looking into increasing traffic, not only because I want to be worshiped (jk) but because I want to find more blogs & lovely people to connect with.  Being able to connect & share with people who are like me or who are interesting is the reason I started blogging in the first place.  Finding a crowd that sort of 'got it' was important to me.  Also, I sorta want a visual diary to look back on!

So for September I am going to set a few little blog goals for Five Sixteenths & for Est. 1839.  I just want to get myself out there!

September Blog Goals:
- tag better :: I feel like I just write random tags.  I need to narrow it down to a few.  My blogger has like a gazillion tags!

- include links with in posts :: I try not to assume that everyone that comes here is a habitual reader but I find myself not linking back or forgetting to show the beginning of something.  I want to include more internal links in posts so new readers will know what I am all about!

- comment on more blogs :: There are tons of blogs I read.  I like to pop by just to see what's going on & usually I don't leave a comment.  But because I want to be a part of a community, I need to interact more.

- do a giveaway :: I have been so bad about giveaways.  I say I'll do one, then I never do.  It's just so hard to get around to it.  I should also say I am no good with goals either. (even though I did a whole goal week!)  I get too distracted & move on to something else.  Bad to mention in a post about goals right?

- build friendships :: Building blog friendships is great.  I need to follow through is the main part!

- be all around thankful :: Just to be grateful for what I've got.

What are your blogging goals?
Have you met any that you set out a while ago?
How do you keep track of your goals? Do you get distracted like I do?
Please, help a girl out! :)

oh & enjoy your 3 day weekend! I know I will!
