Keep Up With Your 2008 Resolutions

February 3, 2008

We’re past a month into the year 2008, which is a great time to look over our blogging goals and resolutions and see how much we’ve accomplished and how we’re doing so far. It’s easy to get distracted and completely forget about goals, but if you do checkups every now and then to remind yourself, you’ll be ahead of even your own expectations before you know it.

Let’s take a look at my New Year resolutions. I wanted to work on increasing subscribers, guesting posting more often, building my communities, networking, commenting, getting into a regular posting schedule, building backlinks, working on SEO, learning code, and of course more make money online tactics. I set plenty of goals to keep myself busy this year and to pose a challenge, but not enough to be simply overwhelming.

After doing a quick evaluation, I believe I am doing okay but there is definitely room for improvement. I have worked on guest posting, building my communities, some SEO, and a few other things. I need to work harder on producing quality content, increasing traffic, and networking with others especially.

Review your own 2008 goals and resolutions, if you made any. If you didn’t, go ahead and come up with some now – better late than never. Make sure you’re keeping up with your resolutions because often times people will completely forget about them, even after just one month. Goals are incredibly important in helping you stay focused on what you need to do.

If you’re trying your hardest to keep up with your goals but are struggling, read 3 Steps to Productivity, a great article to keep you in check and work successfully – or consider productivity software if it comes down to that. No matter if your resolutions include increasing your readerbase, working on your design, or just becoming a better blogger in general, they all take effort and determination. To be able to look at your list of resolutions at the end of 2008 and realize you finished them all and more will be a very rewarding feeling, so don’t let anything stop you.

    My first month had totally gone haywire with a few days of total hiatus from blogging but I am glad to see that my readers are not flocking away because of that.Anyway, after reviewing my resolutions, I find that some goals are indeed hard to be achieved if I don’t put in any efforts. I guess, the mood during the holidays which are more delighted can cause over-setting of goals. :mrgreen: All the best in achieving your blogging goals! ;-)

    Wayne, it’s a very good thing to know that your readers didn’t abandon you because of it. You write such fantastic content than even a small hiatus wouldn’t drive them away! I’ve found that some of my goals require more effort than others as well, but I’m very determined to complete them. I think the hardest for me will be learning code and making and dissecting WordPress themes, but that’s something I want to do. Thank you, and good luck with your blogging resolutions as well! :)
