As you can see in my previous blog post (if you haven’t seen it yet, click here), I had a very good year this year. www.investinblog.com was created in August 2017, and since then I had great number of readers coming to my website, leaving awesome comments on how helpful my blog posts were.

Of course, those comments inspired me even more, and I am even more determined to make my blog website bigger in year 2018.

In case you are wondering what my blog website is all about, www.investinblog.com was created with 2 goals in mind – teaching readers how to create a successful blog website and teaching readers how to manage their money to create wealth.

What I have achieved in 2017
Blog Writing & Tips

My ultimate goal is to teach you everything I learn. I love teaching and engaging with people, and I thought blogging would be one of the best platform to get in touch with people globally.

I didn’t want to just talk crap, that’s the last thing I want to do. I wanted to show you all my techniques and strategies with examples and with live evidence. Hence, I started from scratch to show you my blog website from the very beginning. I’m sharing with you all the techniques and strategies I learn along the way as I get more followers on social media, more email lists, more traffic, etc.

Since I started blogging – I’ve been having so much fun! 

Blogging is all about sharing your passion. You don’t have to be the absolute, mega best at your niche industry. But you do need to be good at it so readers will look up to you and follow you.

I’m not the best in the world at money management, and I’m not the best in the world at teaching people on creating blog website either. But I do know various techniques that work, and I do have my own personal skills for money management. I want to help people, because that’s what I enjoy. Hence creating this website brought me more joy into my life.

With 2018 just around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to set out goals for www.investinblog.com. My ultimate goal is to grow this website so big to a point where it becomes the “source for help” when it comes to blogging tips and money management.



Of course, that’s a very long way to go but doesn’t hurt to dream big. In order for me to achieve this, I need to achieve smaller goals first. I don’t expect an overnight sensation or anything – I’m a core believer of achieving smaller goals that contributes to achieving a bigger one!

This is what I plan to achieve in year 2018:

  • Facebook: 3,000 followers (553 followers at the moment)
  • Twitter: 2,000 followers (317 followers at the moment)
  • Pinterest:
    • 100 followers (7 followers at the moment)
    • 15,000 monthly viewers (4,600 monthly viewers at the moment)
    • 1,500 pins
  • Google Plus:
    • 500 followers (40 followers at the moment)

Hopefully I can achieve this by the end of year 2018. Then 2019 will be even bigger, and so on!

People often ask me why I don’t have an Instagram account. For the time being, I want focus on these 4 social media platforms rather than adding in another social media that I am not too familiar with. It’s better to invest my time more into mastering fewer social media platforms.

In terms of my website traffic, this is what I have achieved in year 2017:

457 users
1,813 page views
805 Sessions
2:10 average session duration

My goal for 2018 (for the total year) is going to be:

15,000 users
50,000 page views
20,000 sessions
2:30 average session duration

This means, on a monthly average I will need to get:

1,250 users monthly average
4,000 page views monthly average
1,700 sessions monthly average

The numbers are incredible! I am confidence I can achieve this, and I am going to try my absolute best to achieve this number. Of course, I will share with you everything I learn along the way.

Watch this space, as it is about to get bigger than ever. Thank you so much for all your support as always and I really hope you find this blog post more inspiring for you as well!
