I know many bloggers have a definite goal for their blog. Well, unfortunately, I don’t or better put, I wasn’t really thinking about this when I started blogging.
At first, my blog was just a bunch of rudderless articles strewn in an ocean of content because all I did was write, write, and write some more about anything and everything.
With time, my readership grew and I had to tweak my blog to make my existing and potential audience easily access content that piqued their interest. This ultimately resulted in me changing my blog design and template but I still did not have any short term or long term blog goals.
Until today, I didn’t even realise how important this is. After much thinking, I am proud to say that I have finally come up with the goals and objectives of my blog. What I am about to put down has been what I have actually been doing without realizing it. However, putting it down this way makes it grounded and definite.
What are my primary blogging goals?
1. To Inspire:
My blog was birthed from a need to inspire thousands of people across the globe. It doesn’t matter where you live or your nationality, Ria’s Haven blog churns out relatable content for everyone.
2. To Teach:
This comes naturally in my writing as teaching is one of my strong forté. My writing style is quite simple and easily understandable. I love sharing information, insights, and facts about blogging because I had such a difficult time navigating the blogosphere and I totally understand how it feels to be clueless.
3. To entertain:
I love to infuse humour in my writing because laughter makes everything better including reading a lengthy blog post.
Plus I strongly believe that through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.
This prompt really opened up my perspective on blogging, what do you think? Do you think it’s important to start off with a specific goal in mind? Do you have any definite blogging objective/goal(s)? Are they long term or short term?
