When you started your blog, did you set any goals?
In starting my blog I was new to the Social Media world. I did not have Facebook, twitter or Google accounts.
So, my first goal was to research and learn as much as I could about how to use it and how they all connect.
Another goal I set was to commit to writing a little bit towards posts 2 days per week to result in at least one post per week.
My final goal was to reach 50 followers. This was a number I would use to gauge when to sign up for my own domain and hosting so I could branch out into having ads and promoting people and products.
I want to take a moment to thank my followers for faithfully liking and commenting on my blog. It is so encouraging, humbling and heart warming to know that people want to know every time I post so they can see what I have to say. I am officially addicted to you and making my blog fabulously interesting.
Have you achieved them?
I have achieved all of these goals with the exception of owning my domain…
Have they changed at all?
I have ‘upped the anti’, so to speak. My new goals are as follows:
1} Start hosting with Bluehost and import all my content to new site. Hopefully I don’t mess it up, wish me luck… Anyone know if I have to backup my site and to where, or how to find them again!?
2} Apply some techniques to get more traffic with better tags, frequent conversation on my new twitter account and finding even more great blogs to chat with.
3} Treat my blog like a job in the sense that I will sit down for a predetermined timeframe every day to write, read, search and research. I would like to do 30 minutes, to start. This decision was made, in part, as an attempt to post more frequent, quality content.
4} By October I would like to enable ads and start promoting products/businesses/people.
Well, now it’s official. I have published my goals. It becomes much more crucial or perhaps concrete when you tell someone a plan.
Good luck with your goals!
