There’s a good insight into Weblogs Inc and how they set goals for their bloggers over at the Jason Calacanis blog today. Jason says they don’t give incentives to hit the goals of 20% growth per month for blogs with less than 1 million pages a month or 10% growth if you have more than 1 million pages per month – but the goal is there.
I like the concept of setting these sorts of goals.
My own goals have become a bit fuzzy in the last few months but in my early days I set a 10% minimum growth in terms of traffic and income per month. I found this was easily achievable so bumped it up to the 20% mark so I think WIN’s goals are achievable.
Sustain growth of 10 – 20% per month over a year or so and you get to a point where the growth becomes quite exponential.
As I say – the last few months I’ve been less focused upon setting goals as life and blogging have become quite busy. I’ve decided that in the new year I’m going to try to take a few days off by myself down at the beach somewhere (summer here) to think through my blogging strategy and to refocus after what has been a pretty amazing 2005.
Do you set yourself goals for your blogging? Feel free to share what they are if you wish or what factors you build into them.
