Successful Bloggers Set Goals

Successful Bloggers Set Goals

What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?  Successful bloggers set goals, both short-term and long-term.
Every action made regarding your blog should have intent and purpose.  Every blog post, social media post, your branding, even your blog’s design, should fit into the bigger picture.

That’s where goal-setting helps you become a successful blogger.

It’s best to create your long-term goals first.  Then, you’ll have a better idea of what your short-term goals should be.

Long-term Goals

Long-term goals for your blog are important.  Ask yourself, why did you create your blog?  What do you hope to accomplish with it?  Where do you want to be in 3 years?  What about in 5 or 10 years?
The easiest way to do this is to ask yourself “What do I want to be doing with my blog, on this exact day, 3 years from now?”  Be very specific.

  • How many email subscribers will you have?
  • What products or services will you be offering?
  • How much money will you be making as a result of your blog?
  • Will you have an assistant to help you?
When you can verbalize these objectives, put them composing. At that point, keep them someplace that you will see them routinely.
Every decision you make concerning your blog becomes easier once you’ve created these long-term goals.  If an action isn’t going to help you reach them, then don’t waste your time on it.  It’s that simple.

Short-Term Goals

Your short-term goals ought to be things you need to achieve today, this week or even this month. Anything over a half year ought to presumably go under long haul objectives.

They can be as small as they need to be, as long as you have to put forth some effort to achieve them.  Some examples of short-term goals might be:
  • Adding a new plugin today that makes posts easier to share
  • Creating Pinterest images for your old blog posts
  • Growing your email list by a certain number for the week
  • Sending out a certain number of email pitches for guest posting in a month
Setting short-term goals and achieving them will improve your self-esteem and your motivation.  You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment and be excited to work towards the next goal.
I felt that don’t just create goals for the sake of accomplishing something. Be mindful, and create goals that help you reach your long-term goals.
