Blog Goals!

Blog Goals!

Starting a blog is a big decision. Before this blog, I had started two others and both were unsuccessful because I didn't have a plan and I didn't have goals. In creating this lifestyle blog, I knew I needed a different approach. Here are some things I did before even publishing my first post.

  • I made a list of goals

  • I chose a name

  • I did research

  • I wrote out as many blog topics as I could think of

  • I pre-wrote posts in Google docs

  • Until I met my first set of goals, I didnt even create my website.

Here was my first set of goals (and ones I am still working on)

Due August 31

  • Pick name

  • Write minimum of 10 blog posts

  • Have list of 20 more post ideas

  • Purchase domain

Due September 30

  • Create basic layout of site

  • Create business plan

  • Create SM re blog

  • Create logo

  • Have 10 more posts written

  • 15 more topics

Due October 31

  • Launch blog

  • Have 5 more posts written

  • Set up newsletter

  • Have 10 more topics

Due November 30

  • Research affiliates

  • Write 5 more posts

  • 5 more topics

December 31

  • Make profit

After going research, I realized I needed to publish my blog as soon as possible, so I could start getting views, newsletter subscriptions and begin generating profits. I still felt it was important to have an arsenal of posts and topics to work on that weren't up on my site yet and to have a schedule of when I would publish. My new goals look like this:
