Summer Blogging Goals

I always look forward to summer because it's three months of spare time to focus on improving something that I really love: my blog. I blog as much as I can during the school year, but I don't always have the time to blog every single day or improve what is lacking. At the beginning of each summer, I love to come up with blogging goals in order to get my blog where I want it to be.

o n e  |  rebrand
I'm so excited to announce that I will officially be rebranding my little corner of the Internet this summer! Private School Prepster isn't going to reflect me forever, so I'm very happy that I have found a new name that will totally reflect me during college and afterwards. I have come up with a blog design and bought the domain name as well, so I cannot wait until I can finally apply it to my blog! And my blog name is even available for social media handles ;)

t w o  |  step up Instagram game
I'm totally lacking on my Instagram. I don't post pictures on there too often, and I don't always take many pictures that I would like to post. I would love to take better quality pictures and post them on my Instagram. I'm hoping to increase my follower count as well!

t h r e e  |  do outfit posts
I take pride in the fact that out of all seasons, my summer wardrobe is definitely my best wardrobe. It's probably due to the fact that summer is the only time that I actually get to wear real clothes after spending four years in a private school, but it's still my cutest. I have so many cute outfits that I would love to share on the blog, but I have always struggled with taking pictures of them. Where will I take the pictures? What will I use to take the pictures? When will I take the pictures? I'm sick of taking pictures in my backyard with my iPhone; I would love to up the quality of my pictures by taking them in cool locations with a DSLR camera that I'm hoping to get.

f o u r  |  post more
I thought I would be able to post every single day right when summer started, but I have totally been inconsistent. I have still been pretty busy, even though it's summer! I'm hoping to devote a couple of hours one day each week to just writing all of my blog posts for the week. One thing I hate is inconsistency, and I have a bunch of post ideas that I would love to bring to the blog!

f i v e  |  work with brands
I love collaborating with brands because it's a great way to give them some spotlight, and it's a great way for me to find really cool companies that fit my style. I haven't had much time this year to focus on finding brands like I have in previous years, so I'm really hoping to get lots more fun collaborations on here!

s i x  |  collaborate with bloggers
Collaborating with other bloggers is always so much fun. I always love to work with other bloggers, whether it's doing a linkup or sharing an outfit involving a piece that we both have. It's an easy way to get more readers, and it opens your blog up to new possibilities!

Definitely adding these six goals to my inspiration board to remind myself of everything I want to achieve by the end of this summer. Can't wait to see how my blog turns out!

What are your summer blogging goals?


  1. Great post, Ashley! Even though I came up with some things I need to work on for my own blog.. You just gave me even more ideas! xo- Cathleen

  2. I'm so exciting to find out your new blog name! I am also in the midst of changing my blog name, and whether or not the name has availability on social media or not is a big factor!:) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love all your goals! If you ever want to collab together one something this summer just let me know because I am always open to collabs! Also, I can't wait to see your new blog.
    xo, Scarlett

  4. that's so exciting that you're re rebranding! I can't wait to see the new blog design - and yes, I definitely don't have as much time as I thought!


  5. I'm anxiously waiting in suspense to hear the reveal of the new blog name... so excited! Also so thrilled to work on another huge collaboration with you! I also need to expand my "outfit" section of my blog - I love styling but I get so sucked into writing posts!
    Thank you so much for participating - I appreciate it so much!
    xoxo, Jamie

  6. I love your goals! I'm so glad you also participated in Jamie's linkup & I was able to discover your blog. I will definitely be adding it to my bookmarked list of blogs :) Can't wait to see how you rebrand! XO, Nicole @
