Blogging Goals for 2013

Blogging Goals for 2013

It doesn't matter where you are currently with your blog, only where you want to be by this time next year.

Blogging isn't a get rich quick business by any stretch of the imagination, rather it is a get rich slowly scheme, assuming of course that you are doing all the right things at the right time.

The next question you should be asking your self is whether you are doing all the right things? What are the right things? How much should you be doing them?

If you want your blog to be earning you real money that you can take to the shops and spend then you unfortunately have to put in the initial work to make it successful first.

There is an old saying that there is no such thing as easy money..... and to an extent that is true, but if you look at what it actually takes to work from home writing a blog, there are lots of advantages, that add up to make it about the easiest way to make money online.

No commute, no early starts, no alarm clocks if you don't want them, no train journeys, no rain, no parking charges, no traffic wardens, no suits, no intolerable office colleagues...... shall I continue?

The benefits of earning a living from anywhere you choose to be are many fold, you can run your blog from home, holiday, cafe, beach, anywhere you choose, in just an hour or two a day.

To begin with, we would recommend spending as much time as you have available on your blog, so that it grows as quickly as possible for you. The faster you can make it successful, the quicker you can afford to easy back and reap the rewards.

So how are you going to make your blog successful in 2013? What are you going to do that will drive it forwards?

Here is a list of the Blogging Goals you should be thinking about if you want to achieve success in a year:

1. Write a blog post every day
There will of course be days that you really have nothing to say, but they should be few and far between. There are many different ways of coming up with a subject for a new post. It's not a coincidence that the majority of top 100 Technorati blogs all post new content at least once a day..... you should do the same.

2. Ping your post with 2 pinging services every day
This process gets your new content found and ranked really quickly.... read more about pinging blogs

3. Share your Content Socially
Get in the habit of sharing each new post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn etc It is a great way to build your audience and get your message out there.

4. Comment on Other Niche Blogs
Being active within your niche will help you to grow the popularity of your blog. If you really want to become successful, add 20 top quality blog comments on your competitors blogs each and every day.

5. Use Social Bookmarking Sites
Social Bookmarks are a great way to build followers to your content. Start by bookmarking all of your posts with as many social bookmarking sites as you can. It really is a case of the more the merrier.

If you just do these 5 things, your blog will be well on it's way to profitability, but there are a few other things you should also be considering too......
