Today you have created goals for your blog. Share your goals for your blog below.
Marie PalmeriMemberApril 16, 2020 at 3:08 am410
The main goal for my blog is to inspire as many people as possible, hoping that they will do the same for me as well. Life is a learning process and that is what I want my readers and I to do…to learn from each other.
I envision myself sharing articles which others have written and sharing my own thoughts and abilities on my blog page. Posting something a day may be a bit much but maybe one post a week will do for now. I will also try to put in some time just to read and reply to messages and also maintain and add people to my contacts list.
MonicaModeratorApril 17, 2020 at 1:08 am8460
These are great goals, Marie! Make sure to write them down and consistently pursue them 🙂
Danielle BakerMemberApril 17, 2020 at 7:49 pm395
This is great Marie! You will do great things with this blog.
I can’t wait to read more of your posts and share ideas in your Facebook group!
Lisa LysenMemberApril 16, 2020 at 4:26 pm495
I originally started this challenge to learn a little about blogging and as a way to pass the time. Now I’m crazy excited about it and can see all kinds of ways to make it work for me. I approached the 2 RM’s mentioned in “A Page for Your Scrapbook” and offered the story to them as a gift … the people in both towns are very close to my heart and are struggling terribly with this pandemic. I plan to connect with other townships, though as travel opens up a bit and hopefully sell stories to them? Maybe to travel magazines, too. I’m going to post at least once a week and continue to participate in Facebook groups. I’m hoping to guest post on other blogs and would love to have people guest post on mine! My main purpose for my website, though is to include a link to it in my resume when I apply for freelancing work.
MonicaModeratorApril 17, 2020 at 1:09 am8460
Awesome goals, Lisa! I see them all being achieved in no time! Make sure to work towards it 🙂
Danielle BakerMemberApril 17, 2020 at 7:48 pm395
This is great Lisa. I too started this just for fun but now I want to do more with the blog. I look forward to reading more of your posts!
Lisa LysenMemberApril 18, 2020 at 2:54 pm495
Thanks Danielle! I really love getting your posts in my inbox every day … they’re always great. We’re following your suggestions and they work! I’ve been scrambling a bit to get my assignments done so I haven’t been commenting but I have been reading and enjoying 🙂
Danielle BakerMemberApril 17, 2020 at 7:55 pm395
My main goal is to continue to publish at least one post per week to keep showing the results and giving my readers tips on what they can do at home.
I will send newsletters out every two weeks, that will coincide with the garbage day posts so my subscribers can get direct access to the curbside photos.
I will create one Lead Magnet a month, and rotating the different Lead Magnets in my posts.
I am really loving the idea of Guest Blogging and offering my services to write blogs for others. So one of my goals this year will be to connect with bloggers and groups to offer my services on a regular basis (keep adding to that list).
Time Blocking is working very well for me so I will time block 1 hour sessions 2 to 3 times a week to focus on email marketing, social media presence and publishing posts.
MonicaModeratorApril 18, 2020 at 1:58 am8460
You seem to have it all figured out, Danielle! This is great. Your project has evolved so well and I can’t wait to see where it goes 🙂
Clarissa CabbageMemberApril 28, 2020 at 5:04 am605
I plan to post once per week for the next few months. It is definitely very important to me to get good quality content on the blog to attract traffic and gather emails for my list.
I think posting once per week will also give me time to experiment with different types of content, and different ways of engaging people which will be important for me as I work to develop my info product.
I plan to promote my post each week as I write it. I will send the newsletter out to my email list once per week with any new posts. I will post links to my new post on Facebook and Twitter. I also plan to use Canva to make some inspiring quotes to share here and there, as well as posting other relevant articles from other bloggers on my social media pages, to offer value to my followers.
I will be focusing a lot of attention on my new Facebook group Get Adventure Fit. I have created some daily themes for this group to help engage with the community. I think once I have this group built up, it will be the most effective way to test what will work best as far as my info product goes. If I can get this community to engage with me, I think I can offer a lot of value to them, and learn a lot from them as well.
I am hoping that in the next 6 months, I can have an info product ready to go, and hopefully by that time I will also have a decent email list and engaged Facebook group that will be interested in it!
MonicaModeratorApril 29, 2020 at 1:34 am8460
Woah Clarissa, you really have everything planned out. You have everything under control! I’m sure you will be very successful in your journey 🙂
Brittany KellerMemberMay 1, 2020 at 10:52 pm470
ok! Came up with 5 specific goals. Most of which center around marketing the blog, but to start:
- write 2-3 posts per week
- read other blogs in my niche
- do a discussion post on FB group page 1x per week
- start other accounts for blog – twitter, instagram, etc
- do 1 guest post on someone else’s blog per month
MonicaModeratorMay 2, 2020 at 2:04 am8460
These are great goals, Brittany! Super specific is good, like this it will be easier for you to follow through. These seem very realistic 😀 Well done!

Dana TrummelMemberMay 9, 2020 at 9:42 pm490
My goal this year is to continue blogging and posting once a week. I want to become more involved with Pinterest and facebook groups. I plan to continue following other bloggers so that I can learn from those who have the same interests as myself. My full time job will begin again soon, so my calendar will be getting revamped. I have no problem with slow and steady. I want to keep learning the tricks of the trade, so I will be researching more.
MonicaModeratorMay 10, 2020 at 1:46 am8460
These are great goals, Dana! I think creating a Pinterest page with all of your DIYs would be super useful, a lot of people look for DIYs there and you could redirect them straight to your blog! Great job, keep up 🙂
Kim WhitefordMemberMay 11, 2020 at 6:53 pm375
I am feeling more confident with my posts as I continue to learn and improve on things. My next goal is to work on some affiliate programs with companies and to open my own online store. This will take some time but I’m confident it will happen.
Here is the link to my latest post
MonicaModeratorMay 12, 2020 at 2:59 am8460

AMANDA ZOYAMemberMay 15, 2020 at 7:28 pm475
My blog goals:
1 article a week – consistently, later make this two.
Get to 100 subscribers within 30 days
Define my niche more clearly
Learn how to use Facebook and twitter effectively in the next 30 days (Yes, there are people who don’t know how to use these in today’s age. I am one of them. Ha, ha.)
Lydia BrinkmannMemberJune 29, 2020 at 3:02 pm665
Amanda, I’m great at Facebook but I want to learn twitter, instagram, pinterest.
Depending on your blog topic, you might want to look at pinterest more. It is a search engine not social like fb, twitter, and insta. I have been learning a lot of people use Pinterest to drive traffic to their site and Tailwind to help. My #1 choice is going to be pinterest. I am also hosting a facebook group. In the future I plan to add insta and twitter only maybe if things are goingn well.
Isabelle ColantonioMemberMay 22, 2020 at 2:04 pm495
main goal for my blog is to share my passion of crochet, macrame and cards making and also to sell my products instead of doing makers markets which might not happen this year.
So, as I still have a full-time job, I intend to:
– Post new articles once or twice a week,
– promote my content on Fb, Instagram at least twice a week on each plateform. I have to work on a professional Pinterest account too to add it to my social medias
– About monetizing the blog, I’m hoping to sell my products but my own digital patterns as well, and maybe some kits too, then affiliate marketing as well
– Sending first a monthly newsletter as a recap of the month.
I have to set time block for all this because I love spending time creating stuff too (I just got my new Cricut machine and it’s just mind-blowing in cards making!). So time blocking for creation too.
MonicaModeratorMay 25, 2020 at 2:40 am8460
Well done, Isabelle! You seem to have a clear idea of what you want your blog to become and how to get there with baby steps. It will be all worth it, I promise. You are doing an amazing job 🙂
Jessica CroftMemberMay 27, 2020 at 2:41 pm230
My main goal currently is to complete the set up, launch, and start promoting my blog. I also have a goal to blog at least 1-2 times per week consistently. Another goal is to grow my email list to my first 1,000 subscribers. I have tons of future goals, but one step at a time.
MonicaModeratorMay 29, 2020 at 2:29 am8460
This is awesome, Jessica! Build a structured plan to achieve these goals, they are not as intimidating as they seem 🙂
Binky TheodoreMemberMay 28, 2020 at 3:30 pm540

Heather.lockeMemberJuly 12, 2020 at 4:05 am855
My goals for my blog:
I want to share all my experiences so help other teachers make it through. I want to pass on the advice and resources. I hope to reach at least 100 subscribers in the next year and find a way to make contact with others ( I have never been good at talking with people). I would also like to share the different things I use for my son and in my classroom to monetize my blog (affiliate links). I want create resources to help my followers and even create some small cost items to help teachers (i.e.; student achievement charts for $1.00) – working to build relationships and get my name out there. Send out updated email to subscribers with news and updated posts.

My Website Goals
- Creating a membership platform
- Creating a forum for discussions between members (perhaps discord could be a good interim solution)
My Readership Goals in one year (July 2021)
- 100 subscribers

MonicaModeratorAugust 8, 2020 at 1:28 am8460
I reckon these are very realistic goals, Saebyl! Making your blog manageable enough for your daily life is the most important thing. Don’t burnout or overwhelm yourself in order to meet any goals, it truly isn’t worth it. Creating a membership platform is such a great idea! I’m not sure about platforms to do so but I’m sure there are loads of different options. Still, a Facebook group would work really well and its a free option 🙂
