Blog Goals Set for 2016: Take Off Your Blindfold and Get Focused
Ready for a fresh start?
Doesn’t matter what happened in 2015. That is now behind you.
We either learn from it and grow or we repeat in 2016 what we did in 2015.
Choose option 1!
Imagine where your blog can be twelve months from now…picture the results you want:
•A tribe of devoted fans
•Lots of readers
•Higher level 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 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.”
I think you should do this right now.
Go ahead, share your new year’s resolutions right here in the comments below. I’m going to be hanging out here in the comments closely over the next 48 hours or so, 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 resolutions at any time.
You know, this could really be a powerful exercise for you.
I’m here to give you a boost any time you’re feeling discouraged throughout the year, so don’t worry about a stumble 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 resolutions 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.

Here are the goals I’ve set for myself:
1. Upgrade my video camera and additional equipment so I can communicate these blogging tips ever more effectively for you.
2. Start a podcast.
3. 4 guest posts on some sites I’ve never posted before that I admire.
4. Add 10,000 email subscribers
5. Do more interviews this year than last year
6. Read 27 books and do reviews here on the ones you will find interesting. (Not all of these on my list are a good fit for this audience.)
7. Double my income.
Those are mine. I’ve asked some of my prominent blogger friends to share their goals with us. Those that come in, I’ll be adding to this post.
Now It’s Your Turn! Share Your Blog Goals for 2016 Below
