Hello, friends, I am writing an article after a long gap of more than 6 months, however being a blogger it is not easy to stay away from blogging so returning back to you with one more important topic about Successful Blogging Goals.
Successful Blogging Goals is as important as creating a blog to succeed in blogging, the competition has gone way beyond our imagination. Many of the bloggers fail today because they think they are already successful when they see their blog starts performing well in search results. Once the Google update comes, blogs get kicked out from search results or get dropped and later keeps struggling in recovering or end up starting another blog.
Then What was your Goal?? Just Traffic and Money??? That’s What you Blog for??
If your Goal is making money straight forward, then what benefit are you giving to your users?? that’s another straight question!!
That’s another straight question!!
You give them a good reason to use your site, you will straight away make a big shot out of it.
Setting up Quick Success Blogging Goals ends up giving quick results:
On setting up Blogging goals, you can quickly focus on what you should do and what you should not. Otherwise, in the maximum case, we end up trying new stuff or searching for next move, which ends up making multiple choice for you. On another hand, you are already getting started with your blog, which actually wastes your time on useless experiments, which delay in work progress and results.
I also had experienced the same things like the niche of the whole blogs get changes [Even with my own blogs], which not only affects the goal part but it also affects in building readership.
Money is important, but our blog should also have a goal to deliver something extra on atleast some particular thing or it should at least add some value to users that they don’t say it is just a useless site having nothing interesting in it. If I just keep doing what millions of other tech blogs are doing and rank for few days what’s the use? Someday if any update hits your blog the future of the blogs ends up.
Successful Blogging Goals:
On setting up blogging Goals it will help you to quickly take your plans into actions for quick results. I will be sharing you about what I personally do!! When I create a new blog that should generate some money from it or get decent traffic to it.
For me just traffic and money is not all that I want, I believe in making good relation with my blogger friends, building up the team and working together with clients.
Giving Priority to Relation:
I will never ever regret giving first priority to making relationships with people because it is just like building up your base, in bad times nothing saves you but a good relation. I feel very lucky that I am few fellow blogger friends who are always up and ready for help at any time in any way. On keeping good relationships with your users and followers you always get an extra support, it will always help you at some point, not from all you can expect big help but you have nothing to loose on keeping good relationships with everyone.
Blogging is a beautiful profession and it’s a beautiful journey I had till now living a wonderful life of a blogger, but life always has something exciting and dramas every time with ups and downs. Trust me it won’t be wrong to say that, it has helped me to become what I am today. I am always thankful to my friends and always try to be humble to everyone so that we both can be helpful for each other in bad times.
Building up readership:
Blogging not just writing an article and hitting the publish button, to build up a blog as a brand you need to build up readership. SEO Ranking is important for every blog’s success, but apart from SEO rankings building up your own community and readership is very important.
Once you start building a community of your readers and starts communicating with them on a regular basis it becomes very easy to understand your audience and their needs. It is one of the key factors behind all the successful blogs available online today on the internet.
The main benefit of building readership is that you understand what your users want and expect from you. What kind of topics can make your users happier? Apart from that, if we open up the list of most successful sites in the world it’s because users like to stay on those sites, where they find new stuff or have a solution of their problems with the help of the support team.
Choosing the categories:
The First thing that comes to mind is while choosing a domain name for a blog is the niche of the blog, taking a note on that we try to relate our domain name to the niche of the blog.
Choosing a niche is a very common thing and almost every one of us chooses our blog niche while starting a blog, but most of us don’t have a habit of adding categories. It not only distracts you but it also makes you confusing while choosing new topics for adding a new blog post.
On having a fixed categories set before hand, it makes easier for you to pick your next keywords and target your users. Not only about traffic but when it comes to design, planning your blog future, building up the community and monetizing a blog, it is always helpful.
I had a very bad habit of picking just 2-3 keywords at a time and finishing it up, I am sure many of you are still doing the same or used to do it. It’s a small example of not having a proper plan or goal about the future of the blog while working with some of the successful bloggers, I realized one thing that they had the 100’s of keywords ready to go live in hand.
Keyword research becomes much easier when you have the categories ready in your hand, you can easily make quick research for new keywords based upon your categories and your competitor’s site in the similar niche. It will hardly take some 10-15 mins to list down ton’s of potential keywords in your list making it more easy and quicker for you.
Of course, things are not done one handed, but it is very important to have a clear picture and vision about your goal.
I personally prefer using SEMrush mainly and Google AdWord for Keywords research as I am used to its simple and easy to understand interface.
Content Writing & Management:
Content writing is one of the most crucial tasks in blogging, which is needed to be done perfectly. It is as simple as that if you create creative topics and proper content, you will be able to witness a quick hike in building up the community and grow your website traffic.
Now if I say what if you are to increase your number contents published daily, which will at some point lead you to increase the number of a team of writers. Let it be a freelancer or an employee, if you can manage things properly it is going to give you very big relief but if you fail to manage it, it is going to be an extra headache and waste of money.
So if you are just trying to get started with the team, Management skills plays very important role. Personally, I would prefer going with freelancer at the first to keep your headache less. If you are willing to start an office and hire some guys in the team, it will be good not to expect anything for first 3 months from them. Everyone needs time to adjust and learn if they turn out to be good and productive let that be an extra bonus to you, but not expecting much from them in the starting days will be the best option.
Monetization is one of the most important parts, everyone has a goal of making some money out of the blog. Understanding the monetization method for your blog which might fit the best is extremely important because picking up the best network that fits your audience can literally boost your blog revenue generation Like we generated over 50k$+ on single month with Google Adsense.
Once you prepare proper guidelines for your users via article to solve their problems and you add that product to the list which can help your users in solving their problem mentioning in the articles along with the necessary instructions. It will definitely help your users as well as help you to make money out of it.
Taking some more examples:
1. If you are running a music site: You can look for some music related Apps that can help you get some referral money from it. Note it down on one side start preparing tutorials for sites one by one. On the same time, you can monetize your blog with Adsense which is always the best option for technology, entertainment or others general niche blog monetization.
2. On Running a Fitness: Fitness is a big category having lots of monetization products and ad network. Not just that it has a huge audience if you can pick the right topics. If I run a fitness blog, I would first list down the products, Ebooks, Diet Plans and common fitness problems solution that maximum users seek for.
After I list them down one by one I will start collecting articles on all the necessary topics so that I can genuinely help out my users and recommend right products for their benefit. So that they return to me after they get success while experimenting it, and return back to me again for the future fitness tutorial guides. If my users get help from my blog, I will definitely get benefit out of it. I will go for different monetization methods such as affiliate marketing, Sponsored post, Direct ads and Adsense etc for the fitness niche blog.In this way, we can maintain the blog in terms of monetizing it for our benefit as well as our user’s benefits.

Living a Life: Blogging definitely gives freedoms of time, but it takes lots of time to build up a professional blog and it’s never a short term work kind of stuff at all. From picking a niche, designing, adding additional features, writing regular contents, Social media marketing, building an email list, doing SEO for a blog takes time. It’s never a one day work, therefore if we fail to manage our time properly we might end up losing our personal life and might harm our health as well.

Traveling: For me, it is always important to have a break and go for a holiday trip to refresh yourself and gain more experience meeting new peoples and visiting new places. Not all profession gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, being a part of such a profession which gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, one must have some break for mind refreshment after working day and night for a success.

For me, as I am running the company, the whole team stands with me which makes me more responsible person and my time is little tight when it comes to moving out here and there. Therefore, I go for multiple refreshment trips visiting new places for mind refreshment and some business meetings etc. Apart from that, I love to spend my time with my team working together to make our dreams happen in reality.
The Future: One who doesn’t have any future plan is always unsure about how long things will go right. having a future plan is always right helping you to define your goals and future work on which you should be working hard. On any business there are two types of business plans, one is for short term success and survival another one for the big future ahead.
Once you know how to balance both the things properly, success is not so far away from you.
For me, I first try to understand what is my capability and my current resources, on the basis of which I am going to make my further plans what should I do. I will make two plans one is short term for quick money and long term for big future ahead. If I am about to build up a team whom I need to pay regular salary, I will first secure my 6-month salary or expense on the account separate apart from other daily expenses. On maintaining such things will help you stay safe and balance any kind of failure easily without any merge affect on your projects.
There is a saying “Never Test the depth of the water with both feet“, that make lots of sense in order to stay safe and go long in any kind of business let it be blogging or any other profession.
These are some of the important blogging Goals of my life which I try to balance and practice in my daily life. I love to keep myself happy and comfortable all the time. I am sure you also have your own ethics and goals, which has kept you in the competition so far. Let’s discuss your goals and ethics and also let me know if you like the article or not??
I am quite excited to know about your blogging lifestyle as well. Looking forward to your feedback!!
