Can you believe that 2012 is coming to a close tonight!? I feel like so much happened this year and it went by so quickly. I am honestly excited to begin a brand new year ... so much is happening and changing on this wedding website and blog and I am excited to unveil it! The biggest change is that starting tomorrow, Style Unveiled will solely be run by ME ... Heather :) Yep, that's right! Kimberly is going to be focusing on her photography business 100% and I will be focusing on my love and passion: Style Unveiled. So, in celebration of that change, I have come up with some 2013 goals ... and what good are goals if they are kept secret!? I felt that laying it all out for everyone to see would help me achieve them. So here I go >>
1. Feature only what I love and am passionate about.
Does that seem like a no-brainer? Well, it's not. Running a wedding blog is very stressful at times, because keeping readers happy is the most important thing! Otherwise, they (you!) won't come back! But I want this blog to have a clear voice (my voice!) and a reason. I have decided that 2013 is the year of the elegant, sophisticated, classy, and glamorous weddings ... and I plan to focus on those trends on this blog.
Will you still see the occasional rustic, shabby-chic wedding detail promoted on Style Unveiled? Mmmm, maybe ... but only if I feel it fits the new voice I want to have. If I have a rustic wedding submitted to this blog that has elegant and sophisticated touches, then I will gladly share it! But one thing you will never (and have never seen here) is anything DIY ... and that will continue no matter what.
2. Triple the daily traffic by the end of the year 2013
I am proud to say that because of you, this blog has an impressive amount of traffic ... but it could be MUCH better :) And it will be. By the end of 2013 my goal is to have consistent traffic that is 3 times what it is right now. I am very excited to take the reigns and become my own PR magician ... find avenues to push the Style Unveiled name far and wide. It will be challenging, but fun ... I am excited to get started.
3. Increase Style Unveiled's social network following by 30%
We live in a time where social networking is everything ... Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ ... the list goes on and on! While I am proud of some of the Style Unveiled social network followings, I need to work on increasing those numbers in places. Here are my goals for the end of this year: Facebook > go from 4,760 to 6,188 Twitter > go from 19,815 to 20,409 Instagram > go from 902 to 1,172 Pinterest > go from 4,380 to 5,694 Google+ > go from 37 to 48
Some of those seem completely doable, but on a few I will really have to work to get the following up. Want to help me? :) Here are the links to Style Unveiled's social networking pages.
So there you have it ... 3 goals I wanted to share with my readers ... I have other goals as well, but I am keeping some to myself ;) Cheers to you! Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and safe new year's eve ... time to bring on 2013!!!!
