This post is based on episode 218 of the ProBlogger podcast.
It’s been a very long year, and like most people you probably can’t wait for it to be over. And with the new year just around the corner, now is a good time to set yourself some blogging goals for 2021.
Setting goals is important if you want to grow your blog. It will help you focus your time and energy on what’s most important. And knowing what you’ll be achieving will give you some added incentive to keep going.
Getting SMART about setting goals
There’s a lot of information out there about goals and how to set them. One of the most popular methods is to base them on the SMART acronym, which stands for smartmeasurableachievablerelevant and time-bound. And that’s the one I’ll be referring to in this post.
But I’ll be attaching a few more words to some of those letters to make it more specific to blogging.
S is for…
To start, your goals should be as specific as possible. Don’t set vague goals like, “I want more traffic for my blog,” or, “I want more money from my blog,” or, “I want to post more often.” Howmuch more traffic do you want? How much more money do you want? How often do you want to post?
Instead, work out exactly what you want to achieve:
“I want to double the amount of traffic I had this year.”“I want to make $50,000.”“I want to publish a new post every week.”
Not only are these goals far more specific, they also satisfy another criterion that starts with ‘s’ – significant.
As I said earlier, setting goals is important if you want to grow your blog. But don’t start making them just for the sake of it. You should be setting significant goals that will get you
