Goals to Boost My Blogging Productivity

Goals to Boost My Blogging Productivity



I have been blogging now for the past 3years and I'm just not happy with my productivity.I feel like I could be doing so much more with my blog,with so many options out there I can't seem to get it together the way I'd like it to be.One of my biggest problems is my schedule and organization.I'm all over the place bouncing, starting many projects but not finishing them then I skip to the next.I have to get focused and come up with a plan.This is where the blogging class  http://www.blogelina.com/ I participate in helps.I'm first going to have to make a list of goals for my blog and then stick to them.If I go in the order of my list of goals and finish things by the due dates I'd be on my way to boost my blogging productivity!

Here are my weekly goals I came up with:

Weekends:
Go over my blog to update it,add or delete any buttons or posts.Basically clean it up
Participate in blog hops
Clean out my email folders and catch up with emails
Do my class homework

Weekdays:
Type up at least one blog post
Do 2 things off my to do list that has deadlines
Enter 5-10 giveaways
Visit and comment on 1-3 blogs
Check out my emails
Visit and participate in 1-2 social sites

Tuesdays:
Attend Blogelina's online class

1x Per Month,usually on the 15th.
Host a giveaway hopefully for a company or myself


With these goals I really do plan to stick with them,I know with having narcolepsy sometimes it will be hard but I'm going to fight to complete my daily goals during school hours.The evenings are for my kids and housework!

Please feel free to post any of your goals - weekly,daily or monthly! However you plan to accomplish them I'd really love to read about it!
Thanks

I really like how you made such detailed and scheduled goals! All your goals sound very attainable. My goal for this week is simply to get my blog up and running.

Shannon,

I was reading your post and thought "what a busy woman" and then I realized I do the same things. I must be busy too. LOL. I have been blogging for just over a year and you don't realize how much you do because it is fun.

Good luck with your goals and thanks for stopping by Ramblings of a WAHM.

Nice blog Shannon! Glad to have "met" you through Blogelina's class - thanks for stopping by my site as well. :-) Your goals are very detailed . . . think I may have to 'borrow' a few to add to mine.

Emily said...

Good luck accomplishing your goals this week!

Lindsay said...

Excellently written goals. I like the detail. I have general goals sketched out, but I need to add more specifics on how to accomplish those goals.

I definitely want a productive blog, but learning to balance that with other important things is turning out to be a challenge.

Thanks for the tips!

Megan Cronin said...

Sounds like a great list of fun, reasonable goals. I have GOT to work out something like this.

Shannon, I love these goals! I need to just copy what you're doing. LOL! I think you have a solid plan and when you work your plan, you achieve your goals. Great job!
