How to target the right blog goals?

Of what I have seen the majority of people who fail to accomplish their goals is because they set unrealistic goals. At the beginning of the new year we tend to get excited and this excitement can sometimes lead us to make unrealistic goals. In order to accomplish your blog goals, you will need to focus on setting your goals first. Realistic Goals. Here are some tips for targeting the right blog goals:

Brainstorm

Take a piece of paper and brainstorm. Let the new year’s excitement get to you! Write down all your blog goals, even the unrealistic ones. Once everything is on paper you will have a clear mind to determine what goals are going to stay on the list and which ones you will save for the next year.

Pick and Choose

Strategically pick the realist goals from your list. You might be wondering How do I know if my blog goals are realistic? Ask yourself these questions:

1. Are these really goals that you want to accomplish or are you doing it for someone else?

2. Do you have the resources to accomplish these goals? (time, money, etc.)

3.  Do you see yourself accomplishing these goals?

4. Can you build a plan or strategy that will help you accomplish your goals?

    In your social media goals, I didn’t see any reference for Pinterest – Which is where I found this article! What’s been your success there, any goals for 2018? Tailwind tribes? Thanks for your time!

      I love Pinterest, but I don’t consider it a social media. Pinterest is more of a Search Engine.
      I get the majority of my traffic from Pinterest, so I am obsessed with it and I am always looking for ways
      to improve my Pinterest game. As for goals… I want to start integrating tribes into my strategy. I currently
      use Board Booster, but I haven’t joined any tribes yet.
      Thank you so much for commenting!!

        Ohhhhhhh you just made so many light bulbs go off in my head when you consider Pinterest a search engine. “That makes sooooooo much sense!” I recently just got on tribes over the weekend, posted about my findings and tried to convince my blogging network (mostly financial savings, personal & professional development folks) to join! But, I think everyone’s still figuring out what works best for them in Pinterest. Whereas I’m like – come on guys, let’s get on board with something new while it’s still new and we aren’t joining after the fact! Love that you also used the word strategy…another good key word for the day!
