More Goals - For Blogging

Taken straight from an excellent article on ProBlogger, here are 9 goals suitable for new bloggers such as myself. I think I will need a little more experience to know what would be a suitable Time frame in which to achieve these, but they are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, and Realistic!

1. Publish 10 Posts (done!)
2. Getting your first comment from someone you don’t know (done! Thanks Chrissy!)
3. Get your first link from another blog
4. Build your readership up to more than 20 readers a day
5. Hit a level of 20 RSS subscribers (I have 3 Google Connect Friends so far!)
6. Getting your blog indexed in Google (not sure how to find this out?)
7. Get your blog earning $1 a week (update: only if making money from your blog is one of your goals – it’s not for everyone) -- (I'd rather drive traffic to my Etsy store).
8. First guest post on another blog
9. Having someone (not you or your mum) tweet about your blog

Bloggers, have any more goals to add?


  1. i just tweeted about your fabulous etsy store (does that count?) and will be linking to your blog on an upcoming post highlighting my two new, gorgeous necklaces! you're very talented.

    xx, kimberly

  2. wow! i had no idea i was helping in the achieving of goals!
    yeah for me!
    i think blogging is ALL about helping one another.
    the 1st reason i bought your necklace in the first place (besides the fact it is amazingly wonderful...) was that you had mentioned on your blog your goal to sell a certain amount of pieces in your shop and i LOVE to help out beginning artists..any artist you are on the right track sister.
    keep it up.

  3. Yay Kimberly, thank you!! So Goal #9 is knocked off the list :) I'm so excited that you'll be linking to me on your blog, that will be another one down too!
