I use to think I was really cool by proudly not having goals. I was young, so-called ‘bad-ass’ and an individual that no one was ever going to own or make me do goals. Life was too short to live it trying to fulfill goals and I wanted to live life by the seat of my pants not knowing what was going to happen the next day.
Fast forward to a few centuries later in my life and I kick myself for missing out on what I could have accomplished if I had had the sense to make goals and push myself.
Goals give you something to strive for and give you purpose and help drive you.
The same is with blogging. You need to have blogging goals otherwise how will you stay on track, drive yourself or know when you have succeeded.
Why do you want to blog?
What do you want to achieve from it?
Maybe you just want to widen your groups of like-minded friends or maybe it’s the money thing that you’re aiming for. You might have a product that you want to promote and get out there.
The big secret about goals is making them achievable. So instead of having one massive goal that is just daunting you probably give up at just thought, you break down your massive goal into smaller more achievable goals. If they still seem really big break them down even more.
For example, you might have a goal to make money with your blog. That’s one big and a rather broad goal. Break it down to researching the different ways you can earn with blogging. Then break it down to the ones that would work with your blog. Then the different steps to achieving it. By having smaller more achievable goals you are more likely to achieve them which will motivate you on to the next mini goal. All the mini goals are working towards your bigger goal.
If you are at the beginning of your blogging journey I do have a blogging resources page you might find helpful of all the things I use or recommend.
