Do you have blogging goals or you are just being driven by the wind?

Some bloggers are simply throwing their feet in the dark. They have no goals and don’t know exactly what’s to be done next. They write about anything.

According to Albert Einstein, “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things” and I do concur with him.

In today’s featured post, we are meeting someone exciting. A mompreneur and author of result-driven products to help you in your online business ventures. She will be talking to us about slaying your blogging goals in 3 steps.

Before we find out more about Demetria, remember this is a post in the Thursday series where I feature blogging resource persons from all over the world. Here is a list of those I have featured in the past. To be featured, see details here.

How To Slay Your Blogging Goals in 3 Easy Steps – Demetria Zinga

1 – Write them down and make them visible.

We all want to accomplish our goals for a new year. Because blogging is such a fluid activity where we are constantly learning new skills and checking off tasks, we have to figure out ways to make sure that we don’t forget what our goals are.

I’ve discovered that writing down my goals in a planner works really well for me. I know what I’m going to accomplish each day and each week for an entire month.

Planning a month or two in advance helps keep me motivated, and also shows me if I have discrepancies in my schedule with too much writing on one day. I like to spread out my blogging tasks so that some days I mostly write while other days I record and produce for my podcast and YouTube channel.

I also like to place my goals and inspirational quotes on my wall so that I stay encouraged to keep going.

2 – Stay on track and keep momentum.

An important fact about blogging life to keep in mind is that it becomes all too easy to give up on it- especially if you are not seeing immediate results.

It is so important to understand that as a new blogger, you probably won’t see results right away. Blogging takes time to build rapport and to gain traction in Google.

The most important thing is: keep going. Try to keep a similar daily and weekly pace with your blogging tasks. If you can only post once a week, then do it consistently.

Again, find unique ways to stay on track and keep your momentum going. Keep a planner of your blogging goals and encourage yourself by celebrating small victories.

If you earned two subscribers that week, celebrate it! You don’t need to wait until you have reached 5,000 subscribers to feel that you have the right to celebrate.

3 – Find someone to cheer you on.

I find that it is important as a blogger to keep momentum, and the best way to do this is to gain support.

Do you have a friend or family member that can share in your blogging joys and victories? If so, take advantage of this opportunity to cultivate a friend who will be your cheerleader and celebrate with you.

If you don’t know anyone personally that can be this to you, there are plenty of bloggers online who would love to help you in blogging. Try searching Facebook groups or joining Pinterest boards. Follow fellow bloggers on Instagram.

You will soon find that you are surrounded by a world of like-minded bloggers who are kind and supportive. The blogging community is great, and you will always be able to find someone to cheer you on!

Demetria I am loving these tips. Finding folks to cheer you on is key because we need a boost at times. All of us do, because we are human, and have some doubts. This is why I spend so much energy building my friend network.

    Hi Ryan, I’m really glad you enjoyed the tips. Building your friendship network truly is key to success as we need encouragement and motivation. It’s so easy to doubt ourselves out here in the online world, but with the proper support systems in place we can achieve so much more.

Hi Demetria,

Thanks for a well thought out blog post.

Writing down goals is one of one of my favourite ways of ensuring that I remain accountable. Even the good Book says something about writing down the goals on tablets so that who ever reads it can run with it!

And if I may, let me add a 4th way to slay one’s goals. That would be joining and being an active part of a Mastermind where we hold everyone accountable for achieving their goals!

Thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

Pedro

    Hi Pedro, and thank you for your comment. I agree with you completely: writing down our goals is a biblical concept. It is a concept that works in all areas of life. And you are absolutely right- the 4th way to slay your goals is by surrounding yourself with like-minded people who can help motivate you through a Mastermind program. This is a crucial way to grow in life as we spend time with others who are currently are where we want to go in life.

    Thank you so much for taking time to stop by, read, and comment.

Hey Demetria, great tips!

Especially number #1. Having goals written and where you can see them is such a boon to one’s self confidence, especially when you see them checked off, one by one.

I like the keeping it small approach, goals for today; goals for a week, and press on one by one.

I use that system too though sometimes it fails me and I get slightly depressed.
I look at my week goal and imagine doing it all and I think “and that’s it”?

I’m impatient by nature…

    Hi Nikola! I love having goals written out and visible because it keeps me motivated…but like you, it can also be a bummer if I haven’t met my goals that week. For that, I have learned to give myself grace and just move my goals from one week to the next if I didn’t meet them.
    I get impatient with myself sometimes too, but taking it one goal at a time, one by one as you’ve mentioned, really helps!
    I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Kudos to you Demetria.

This post totally deserves more traction to the people that are just starting out to blog.

Most of their story relates to this: They read a blogging income from a famous blogger and think with themselves that they can achieve that too.

They really don’t how hard they should work to make income from their blog, let alone achieve as much as the blogging income they just read.

So the 3 points you mentioned, they should stick too. When I first started blogging I was so desperate that I wasn’t generating any income from AdSense. Thankfully I had my brother to cheer me up which made me to never give up.

Keep up the good work.

P.s Just sharing this on my Twitter Feed.

Cheers,

Melos

    Awesome, Melos! You are absolutely right- it is definitely an eye-opener to see how much time and consistent work it can take to achieve blogging income. It’s great that you had your brother to keep you motivated with your blogging. Thanks so much for sharing my guest post! I appreciate your taking time to read and comment. 🙂 ~Demetria

Hi Demetria, these are very helpful tips especially the “find someone to cheer you on” point. I used to have difficulty blogging but finding my personal cheerleader really motivated me 🙂
