How to Set Blog-Changing Goals for the New Year

For the first ProBlogger podcast of 2016, I wanted to get you all into the planning mood – to think long-term and broadly about where you and your blog are going in the years to come.

The beginning of January is prime resolution-making time, but I’m a little different: I prefer to make goals.

Goals are great for a number of reasons, and I think they’re actually more actionable and easily achieved than perhaps a New Year’s resolution might be.

If you’re like me, or you’d like to choose practical goals over good intentions, you can start this episode off by thinking about your blog as it stands today… is it the same as you want it to be in a year’s time?

If not – something needs to change, and for that change to happen, you need to know what those changes should be and how to go about them.

In the podcast today I chat with Stacey Roberts, the editor of ProBlogger about her post “Setting Goals: Why You Need Them, and How to Write Them“. We discuss:

  • Why goals are vital if you want to succeed
  • How goals can keep you accountable and on track
  • How to set practical, achievable goals
  • How to stay motivated to achieve your goals
  • How to resist being distracted by the unimportant
  • Why vague goals don’t work
  • What type of goals are the most likely to be reached
  • Why your goals need to be SMART
  • How you can take step-by-step action to succeed
  • The usefulness of partners or goal buddies (and how that can also be derailing for the wrong people)
  • The usual reasons people cite for not setting goals, and how to circumvent them

We cover a lot of ground in this episode, so I hope it is useful to you as you start your blogging year with fresh enthusiasm and organization!

You can find the show notes here, and we’d love to chat goals with you on Twitter – you can reach me @ProBlogger, and Stacey @veggie_mama.

  4. I’ve been looking for a post on this. As I get ready to launch my first book (Raising Uncommon Kids) in less than 2 weeks, I need help managing the other areas of my business growth. Thanks!
