While this is only the third post at This Mom’s Review, I have been blogging for over 15 years! (I had my first “blog” as a junior in high school on the Teen Open Diary platform, and moved to LiveJournal before starting hosting my own back in 2003!) I have always been a hobby blogger, but I’ve also had a few ups and downs and learned the hard way what works and what doesn’t! So I know just how important it is to set attainable goals, and have something to work towards!
While there are only 4 months left in 2014, I thought I would set some “Start-up” goals for myself for this blog! Something to work toward, and a way to measure my progress! (And starting from zero? That’s ok, right?!)
Before setting my goals, I did one of my favorite things – I hit up Pinterest for ideas! Peacoats and Plaid has a great post about Easy Steps to attain Blogging Goals and Blogging on the Side has a great post for Setting Blogging Goals in the New Year! And one that I found really great? Pushing Social’s – Setting the Right Goals for Your Blog!
By December 31, I would like to:
- Blog 5 times per week.
- Determine a Blogging Schedule (2 reviews, 1 DIY/Recipe, 1 Spiritual Post, etc)
- Get 200 Daily Page Views by December 31, 2014
- Read 4 Blogging Books (1 per month)
- Have Fun Blogging!
5 Goals. (Ok, 4 – but still!) And I’m keeping it simple and attainable! I will succeed 🙂
