Since it’s almost summer break I’m going to have a lot of time to work on my blogging goals. I’m VERY determined to make this new blog a success. A very important step in making any successful business plan is setting SMART goals. I dedicated the first month to creating a domain, making it safe (SSL certificate), picking a theme and customizing my blog. Now that that is done, I can start working on the following goals.
Making a lot of money is a common goal set by a lot of new bloggers, But it is not the right way to get started. The first month I will be focussing on gaining traffic. I will take some time to look for affiliates en sponsors but I won’t monetize my blog a 100%.
- Gain 100 Pinterest followers and 20k monthly impressions
- Figure out how to use Tailwind to it’s full potential
- Get 2.500 pageviews
- Gain 10 newsletter subscribers
- Write 12 blog posts
- Make an email course
- Make at least $100
Do you want to start a blog too? Bluehost offers to host from $3.53 a month! This includes a free domain and a free secure socket layer to make your website extra safe for your visitors. Not happy? There’s a 30-day money back guarantee.
Finding sponsors and affiliates
- Find sponsors and save links
- Find affiliates and save the links
Time management goals
This one is more personal. Because creating content takes a lot of effort, I have to properly manage my time. This is not just for my blog but for my (mental) health too.
- Wake up at (or before) 07.30 AM
- Treat blogging like a fulltime job
- Post stories on Instagram every day
- Pin and repin everyday
- Make to-do list every day
I’m currently using Trello to manage my blog and I love it! I also use an agenda on the side to plan my personal life and college of course.
I post new traffic and income reports about my blog each month. You’ll get notifications and exclusive updates if you subscribe to the newsletter. I hope to inspire you!
