My Career and Blog Game Plan

When I think of how far I've come since I graduated college I have to sit down and smile. Two years ago I was working in a job I hated and wasn't sure where my career was going. Today, I've started a journey I love that involves design and this little space. My biggest goals are to continue growing this blog and my design career so I knew I had to sit down and make a game plan. Today I wanted to share it to see if anyone else has a similar plan and to keep myself accountable.


Design

  • create something every other day or every two days
  • find new accounts of designers to follow for inspiration
  • keep portfolio updated
  • post consistently on social media
  • take a skillshare class
  • keep up to date on trends
  • research pricing and how to create a contract
  • design projects for branding, web design, package design, and infographics

Blog

  • create more meaningful posts
  • schedule 2-3 posts in advance
  • take more of my own images for posts
  • comment on others posts
  • find other bloggers to follow
  • join blog groups and communities
  • post consistently on social media

 

 


At the moment I only have an IG account for the blog and design but it's grown so much since I started them. Hashtags have been vital to reaching others. IG's algorithm is still absolute trash and I would love for my feed to be chronological again but I guess I'll just have to make due. I'd love to post on the blog's IG everyday and design account every other day. Maybe a MWF deal? I don't want to overwhelm myself but consistency is key. 

If you have any advice on how to grow either this space or a business please let me know!
