Setting goals in blogging that will make a successful blog
Darren Rowse at www.problogger.net has started another of his group blogging projects
The theme for this one is blogging goals. As my contribution (a very humble one), I am going to give a few of my goals in blogging that I think will help make my blog worthy of reading.
My first goal is to make sure to post regularly and often
pecifically, my goal is to post at least two to three times a week. By post, I mean an article of moderate length not just a sentence or two.
By meeting this goal I believe I will provide a reason not just to read my blog once, but to return. By posting regularly, visitors will know when to expect something new here, a reason to return.
Also, by making these posts at least several paragraphs long I hope it may give them a reason to add the site to their feed or bookmark it
I find, that if most of the posts on a blog I visit are just a sentence or two without any real information or opinion, I feel the blogger does not really have to much to add on whatever subject or niche the blog is about. I then look for somewhere else to provide information. How about you?
My second goal has more to do with the content of the posts
My goal when I started this blog was to share what I did as I developed various websites. I am hoping that my experience as a someone new to creating websites would help others as they start their own websites.
Maybe the best way to state this goal is that I want to help others as I share my experiences
I have noticed that a few of the search phrases that have led visitors here, are actually questions that I had myself just a few weeks earlier. While some of the posts may have answered those questions indirectly, I plan to post a couple articles that clarify those questions. I want to share my personal experience and my opinions formed from them.
These two goals: posting regularly and sharing personal experiences, are goals that provide the means of reaching a third goal
The one that will get me to stop reading everyone else’s blogs and put the effort into writing on mine. That is, to provide a blog worthy to be read and that is read by many. My goal is to provide a valuable resource. Not just a rehash of everything else. This is my primary goal of blogging. I feel that when I have reached that goal with this blog, to me it will be a success.
