Setting goals is important.
What are you striving for?
What does success look like?
What is your vision and what is your mission?
What are your short term goals in fulfilling those visions and missions?
I know I started off on my blogging journey a bit impulsive, basically from one day to the other.
Had some vague plans though, but also knew I had a lot to learn initially, and I still do. However after having experience initially ups and downs (Pinterest jail, Facebook blocking, google search console that doesn’t make sense) I am now at a place where I am actually feeling somewhat comfortable about what I am doing.
Further, after having chased all the initial quick wins and trying to cut corners in trying to boost my blog traffic, I guess it is time so set some more well thought through goals for my mid term blogging career.
So here goes:
📌 30 blog posts after 3 months of blogging
📌 1.000 views on a single day
📌 200 visitors on a single day
📌 100 blog followers
📌 3 sales on amazon affiliate and keeping in program
📌 Nomination for a blog award
📌 15$ earnings across ads and affiliates.
Content is king, and in order to try to keep the bloggers fatigue away the first goal has to be there.
Blogging is all about traffic and a crowd, hence goals nr. 2 to 4.
The big earnings for my blog niche I think has to come from Affiliate, as ads earnings are really low and slow, hence goal nr. 5 and 7.
Success is measured in the eyes of others, and hence goal nr. 6. Please like me.!.
Every goal should have a time horizon as well, so question is how long time I should allow myself to obtain these stated goals? Thinking that 3 months is too short, so I have decided that 6 months will have to do.
180 days that is. From blog start on April 8th.
Is it realistic?
What do you think? And what should I do that I am not currently doing?
