Last year I made a goal to blog every week of 2011, I was so close and I think I will still call it a success as the weeks I missed was when I was recovering from surgery. I also made a goal to have at least 70 subscribers by the end of the year. I know a small number compared to others but I don’t push subscribing like other bloggers because I believe in building a community and I’m looking for real plugged in subscribers. I blew this goal out of the water with now sitting at 113!

This year I want to focus on three areas of my blog: posting, vlogging, and subscribers.


My goals this year for posting is to post at least three times every week. I also want to do at least one 30 day challenge where I add a blog post every day for 30 days.

To help myself accomplish this goal I’m creating a weekly posting schedule, creating an editorial calendar and going to attempt to get at least 2 weeks ahead on my posts.


This year I really want to focus on my videos and vlogging so I’m making a goal to vlog at least once a week. This is going to be a little hard goal to accomplish as I’m still struggling doing videos with my noise little boys around. I’m also hopping to chose a month to do a 30 day vlogging challenge, there may be a few closet vlogs coming your way.

To accomplish this goal I’m hoping to get more involved with some other vloggers and maybe find a vlogging partner to keep each other accountable.


I’m hoping this year to at least double my subscribers on Pepper Scraps. I’m hoping to see my subscriber number hit 225 next December 31st.

I actually feel if I keep consistent with my posting and vlogging goals that my subscriber number will just grow and grow.

To Be Continued

I hope you will spend this year with me and enjoy as Pepper Scraps grows and expands. Now I have my goals in writing and it is time for you to go write down yours! Even if you don’t share them with others write them down!

I would love to here what you would like to see here on Pepper Scraps.
