In August of 2018 I began my blogging journey with hopes of eventually making enough income to work from home. I knew that getting to that point would take a lot of time, hard work, and dedication. So, as one of my goals for 2019, I want to put greater effort into growing my blog.

What follows are 10 of my blogging goals:
  1. Grow My Email List – I’ve taken a stab at starting an email list in the past but didn’t get very far with it. This time around, I want to achieve a minimum of 100 sign-ups.
  2. Post More Articles – My goal is to post at least 3 articles a week.
  3. Promote On Instagram – I will learn how to better promote my blog on Instagram – reaching readers I otherwise wouldn’t reach on Facebook.
  4. Pin More On Pinterest – Weekly, I will be creating Pinterest pins for each of my blog posts in an effort  to generate more followers.
  5. Find Additional Affiliates – Affiliate programs help bloggers earn extra income. I will be seeking out ten more that fit my blogging niche. However, anything I promote will have to be something I would personally use, or it won’t be posted on my blog.
  6. Create A Digital Product – Another way bloggers earn extra income is by creating digital products. I will be working to have one digital product for sale before year’s end.
  7. Design Free Printables – Along the same lines as digital products are free digital printables. These grow email subscribers, and I plan to design three that will benefit my readers.
  8. Make More Money Blogging – While I enjoy working on my blog part-time, it’s still a dream of becoming a full-time gig. By putting more time and effort into it, my goal is to be making at least $500 a month by year’s end.
  9. Write An Ebook – I will begin forming an outline for an ebook that I want to make available on Amazon.
  10. Be More In Touch With My Audience – Most of all, I want to write stories that you, my audience, can relate to. Any feedback I receive helps me know what you like and what you can do without. I will use this information to create a more informational blog that serves you better.

As I read back over these goals, they seem really lofty. It’s going to take a lot of hard work, but if it’s something I love doing, then it won’t feel like work. Right?

Do you have any goals for a blog or business you’ve started? Are you trying to reach your business goals? I would love to hear about some of the things you’re doing to make your business succeed.
