“A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step”.
If you don’t set your blogging goals then there is a huge possibility to immerse in the blogging sea. The ultimate result is you’ll quit blogging.
If you don’t know where you are going then how can you get there?
Let me tell my story.
I started a blog with the aim of keeping all my professional knowledge and experience in a place in a well structured way. After six years of starting that blog when I look at that blog I find I didn’t even complete one-fourth of that.
Because I immersed in blogging sea with that blog.
After starting that blog I found new things everyday like changing the blog theme, changing the title color, changing background image of blog, trying to learn coding, etc, etc etc.
I had a problem (Still I have, trying to get out) that when I learn a new thing I just try to experiment that.
Learning is a good habit, experimenting too. But if you want to achieve something you have to focus on that without distracting. Here comes the goal.
The main purpose of setting blogging goals is to focus on what you want to achieve.
Let’s see why a blogger should set up blogging goals….
Why a blogger should set up blogging goals?
blogging goals let you know where you want to go
It’s ok to start blogging journey without setting up any destination. After all, starting is very important.
If you are waiting to start something perfectly then it’ll never started. Just start somehow you will be able to figure it out later.
But if you want to get to your blogging destination then you should set blogging goals.
When you set up your blogging goal then you’ll know your destination that is, where you want to go with your blog.
