Ready for a reboot?
2016 is now behind you. Staring at the rear-view-mirror for too long will get you in a wreck.
Looking back can be productive only if you are doing so to learn what NOT to do going forward.
I just wouldn’t dwell on it.
So if you need to, find a quiet place and reflect on what you’ve learned. Write those lessons down in bullet points.
Afterward, come back to this post…
Now let’s get to the fun part!
Imagine where your blog can be twelve months from now…picture the results you want:
•A tribe of devoted fans
•Lots of readers
•Higher levels of income
•Helping more people
•Making a difference in your niche
Super ambitious goals like these are a beautiful thing. Yet, to reach big goals you must first set some specific goals to help you get there.
A few examples of specific goals that take you where you want to go are:
•Write four guest posts by Feb. 28
•Get 120 email subscribers per month
•Post one new blog article per week
How do you reach the top of a mountain? One step at a time.
There is power in writing down (or typing) your new year’s resolutions.
In Habakkuk 2:2 it says, ““Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.”
You should do this right now.
Go ahead, share your new year’s declarations right here in the comments below. I’m going to be hanging out in the comments closely over the next 72 hours, and I’ll definitely reply to your comment with some helpful feedback or encouragement.
Then be sure to bookmark this blog article so you can refer back to your declarations at any time.
You know, this could really be a powerful exercise for you.
I’m here to give you a boost whenever you’re feeling discouraged throughout the year, so don’t worry about making mistakes along the way.
Here’s the thing: Accountability is powerful, and this will provide you with that. Plus, your goals can inspire other bloggers.
Even if your goals do not sound at first like “blog goals”, go ahead and share them. Chances are these goals will still somehow help your blogging.
A couple of examples:
•Losing weight or any goals in the “health” category will help you feel better, and this will help you be a better blogger
•Eliminating distractions will help you be more productive as a blogger
You get the idea.
Need more ideas on blog goals? Read through my resolutions here for some examples…I gotta practice what I preach, right? 🙂
Here are the goals I’ve set for myself:
1. Get the Blog Chronicles on iTunes
2. 4 guest posts on some sites I’ve never posted before that I admire.
4. Add 6,000 email subscribers
5. Read 25 books. Share reviews on the books that are a good fit for you, the Build Your Own Blog audience.
7. Double my income.
