Setting Goals

I am not completely new to blogging. I started as an attempt to keep my mind at peace, journaling I guess you could say. I had another site, but let it go after almost a year. I then found WordPress which works so much better for me with many more options. I love it so I’m here to stay πŸ˜‰

To build followers and to establish routine, I am taking part in a Blogging Growth seminar, so to speak. Today’s blogging tip is to set 3 goals for my blog. So here goes it…..

Three goals I have for my blog include:

  1. To offer as much encouragement as I can to others. I am a full-time mother and wife with a part-time job. I enjoy my children, my husband, my family, and my faith, not exactly in that order πŸ™‚ My dream for this blog is to help other mothers discover themselves outside of motherhood (we are mothers but that’s not all we are), to be a source of encouragement for anyone feeling down and out, and to attract others to follow Christ. Of course, this goal will be an on-going one.
  2. To keep things interesting and fun, I would like to initiate a weekly feature. I have been thinking and thinking on this one. I want to offer something unique, something not thought yet. I hope to have this started by the end of May.
  3. To establish a routine, I want to get a post published at least once a day for a couple of months.

In anticipation of these three goals, please follow me, offer comments (all comments are welcome just be nice), and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Questions offer insight and another perspective, which is good for the mind and the heart.

  1. I have been blogging for about 10 months. It started out with several blogs a month because there was so much that I wanted to “say.” I have been much less frequent the last few months. I know its because I wait for something to “enlighten” me, in other words, all of a sudden I get an idea. So, I’d suggest if there are several topics that you wish to write about, do it. One thing that I do is maintain a “topics” page. Either manually keep a list by your computer or just keep updating a running list. Sometimes I find a news article or web page that triggers a topic that I’ve been thinking about. I guess that I just get “inspired” and then the words just start flowing (literally). Other times, I find it hard to write about a subject or topic. I let it go for a while and later discover what I have written goes along with something else I’ve just seen, heard or thought about. Sorry for the rambling but writing shouldn’t be forced but “flowed.”

    1. Very good advice. I try to write every day because it opens up the creativity for me. Some days are really hard and I might just ramble about something. πŸ™‚ But you knww what they say, practice makes perfect or at least the illusion of perfection πŸ™‚

      Thanks for commenting. It definitely opens up a conversation.
