We all know there are umpteen tricks to creating a successful blog. We can post consistently, comment on other blogs, attend conferences and network, pen compelling content, write well, be creative, trick it out with SEO, become an expert, cross-post on Twitter and Facebook and the list goes on and on.
But, none of this even matters if you don’t have a goal in place first!
Creating goals seems so rudimentary, but it is surprising how many people set out to do something great without a road map to help them get there. And so they press on and on, stop and start over, get frustrated, or throw in the towel altogether.
For your mom blog, the ultimate key to success is figuring out what your goal is. Ask yourself a few questions:
Be honest with yourself and figure out why you began blogging in the first place and then make sure your goals are in alignment with why you started. You’ll find it’s easier to get where you’re going when you at least know the way.
