Monthly Blog Goals: May 2017

Monthly Blog Goals May 2017

I can’t believe how fast this past month flew by! I feel like this series is helping me stay accountable on certain items, but I’m still lagging a bit. That’s going to change as of this month. We returned from a nice refreshing week in Kauai and I feel re-energized and ready to tackle some bigger goals.

Before we jump to May, let’s review what happened with April’s goals.

April’s Monthly Blog Goals Review

You can see the whole post here. And here’s how I did:

1. Continue to drive and build traffic.
I saw a bump in traffic, but not as high as I saw between March and April.  I know it’s because I didn’t create enough new Pinterest images for older posts. I will be continuing this effort with Pinterest tactics, guest posting, and updating old posts.

2. Write my ebook.
I got the first page written! I have an outline. Starting this week, I am dedicating an hour a day to the ebook until it’s done, it must get done!

3. Revitalize my newsletter.

I published an April newsletter! Did you see it? If not, you can sign up here to get May’s edition.

4. Build my Portland network.

Nope, didn’t happen.  I think there’s a little bit of psychological mind games going on, because while we are currently living in Portland, it may not be our final destination, as we are also looking for jobs in Seattle. I’m afraid to commit to getting to know Portland better and that’s just plain dumb.

5. Continue My Monetizing Efforts.
Ongoing. I didn’t really put a whole lot towards this effort other than to add Amazon links to books I’ve mentioned. Need to work on this more but only in a way that is organic.

6. Pay it forward.

I read a lot of blog posts, but I don’t think I read 3 every day. I’ve got to schedule this in as a planned effort.

A lot of it is more of the same, with a more focused effort.

1. Continue to drive and build traffic.
Ongoing, I have a traffic goal in mind and I’m not giving up until I reach it!

2. Finish my ebook.
An hour a day until it gets done! I really want to get it out there as I think it will help a lot of bloggers.

3. Get a second consecutive newsletter out. Consider revitalizing my weekly round-up.

Need to build on last month to gain momentum.  I also really like it when other bloggers do a weekly round-up.  I did it for awhile then let it go.  I’ve got to go back and look at the data to see if there is interest there.

4. Look for more guest-posting opportunities.

I guest-posted on three blogs in the last month and would like to get to one a week. Today I’m posting on my friend Natalie’s blog while she is on vacation, be sure to check it out.

5. Continue My Monetizing Efforts.
I need to go back and add affiliate links to some post that cover products I like.  I will continue to promote items as they cross my path and make sense for the blog.

6. Pay it forward.

Instead of three blogs a day, I’d like to set the goal of commenting on at least 5 blogs a week, plus finding 2 new blogs to read.  I would like to also host one guest-poster a week.

How about you? Any of these goals resonate with you? Do you create and track your own goals? If you blog about it, share your latest post about it, I’d love to see it!
