My normal blog posts are mainly How To’s and Tutorials. I thought I would take a moment and write down my 2018 goals and for the PBS Market blog. It’s often recommended that you write down your goals so you have a record of what you are trying to achieve. So what’s more “written down” than an entire blog post? At the end of 2018, I’ll do a follow-up post to see how well I did in achieving my goals.

Goal 1: Post at Least 4 Blog Posts Per Month
The first on my list of 2018 Goals is to write and post at least 4 blog posts per month. This sounds like an easy goal, but as most bloggers know getting out good and consistent content is harder then it sounds. Most of the time it is not lack of content ideas that hold me back.
It’s lack of time!
I have a full-time job that I enjoy however it can get very demanding. I also have a household of 7 people. Luckily my boyfriend is the ultimate “Mr. Mom” which allows me to be the workaholic that I am. But even with all of his hard work, there is time that I need to contribute to my daughter, my boyfriend and the rest of our family.
In 2018, I plan to do more schedule planning. Nothing beats the lack of time more than planning and scheduling your tasks. So in 2018 look forward to seeing 4 blog posts every month!
Goal 2: Get More Engagement on Social Media
The next goal on my list of 2018 Goals is to get more social media engagement. Notice that I said “social media engagement” and not “friends and followers”. Here are my current social media stats as of December 29, 2017:
Facebook Friends: 4911
Facebook Page Followers: 705
Instagram Followers: 11.1K
Twitter Followers: 12.4K
Pinterest Followers: 393
Snap Chat: 50
As you can see my number of friends and followers look pretty good. I started marketing on Pinterest mid-2017 and my follower numbers are growing steadily. I created my snap chat account in 2017 as well but I don’t really use it to market. In 2018, I will put more effort into having a presence on Snap Chat. However, Snap Chat will be used to give my followers a more personal look at my life. It will be silly and unpolished. So if you really want to get to know me and my family follow me on snap chat.
Now back to engagement…
Although I have lots of friends and followers I would like to get more activity on all of my social media accounts. By activity, I mean more likes, comments, and basic communication with my friends and followers. It’s nice to have followers but it’s more important to interact with those followers and have them interact with you in return.
If you are reading this post, take a minute and follow me on my various social media accounts. And once you follow… TALK TO ME! 🙂
Note: To add me to Snap Chat, scan my snapcode above with your snap chat app and it will add me instantly.
Goal 3: Create 2 Products
Third on my list of 2018 goals is to create two products that I can sell on the PBS Market Blog. I have 2 products that I have been planning to create for months and in 2018 those products will become a reality.
The first product will be an ebook. I don’t want to give away the topic but it will be beginner friendly and very easy to follow. I’ve noticed a need to get back to the basics. There are tons of people out there that want to do business online, however, they just don’t understand how to get started. Don’t get me wrong, there are tons of tutorials out there. However, the writers assume the readers have a certain level of knowledge and some reader just do not.
My second product will be a video training course. You can think of it as an upgrade to the ebook. Some people are visual learners. Watching a person perform a task step by step on video will make it easier and more enjoyable to learn. My goal is to keep tons of people from pulling their hair out with it comes to starting an online business and making some money online.
Now, you don’t want to miss the launch of these products in 2018. No worries! I got you covered. Use the form below to join my email list and you will always be among the first to know what’s going on at PBS Market.

Goal 4: Free Video Email Training for Email List Subscribers
Number 4 on my list of 2018 goals is to implement a free email video training series for email list subscribers. This goal is already in the works. I have all of the course content planned. Now I need to take the time to record the videos.
Is it just me or do you find video content very time consuming to make? I’m somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to videos so maybe I’m trying to hard. Either way, there will be videos in 2018!
I’m am grateful for each an every subscriber to my email list. In 2018, I want to provide a valuable gift of free training to all of my blog subscribers.
UPDATE 3/4/2018: The first version of my free video training has been released!
Goal 5: Write More Personal Blog Posts
Last by not least, number 5 on my list of 2018 goals is to write more personal blog posts. I’m not cutting out the tips, tutorials, and How To’s but I want my readers to also get to know me. I’ve been studying a few YouTubers and I’ve learned that they not only show you their specialty content, they let you get to know them as people. I believe letting my readers into my life will build a stronger bond and in turn increase engagement.
In 2018, I plan to include blog posts that tell you about my personal journey with blogging, and internet marketing, and running a small business. I want you to see my successes as well as my epic failures. Many people quit after they fail or when they don’t see instant success. I think everyone needs to see that we all have obstacles, we all fail, and we all can succeed.
If you have been thinking about starting your own blog, there is no better time then right now. Check out my blog post that provides a step by step tutorial on how to start your own blog. It’s not as hard and you might think.
