Community Discussion: What are Your Goals for 2017?

Posted By Stacey Roberts 9th of January 2017 Community Discussion 12

ProBlogger: What are your blog goals?

Ahhh can you feel that? The lively, motivating surge of new year energy. After my beach holiday over the Christmas break, and a recovery from that holiday since (we all need one, amirite?!), I am so ready to crack open the laptop and kick ass for 2017. Are you?!

To that end, I have been ruminating over the things I want to do this year, blog-wise. Experiments to try, older posts to update, slightly-high-but-still-hopefully-realistic social media targets – my list of goals is small, but I’m hoping that means they’ll be achievable.

Every year I sit down and project where I’d like to be at the end of it, and what kinds of things will get me there. Not only the end result, but how I can break that end result down and make it more manageable for my day-to-day.

If this is something you do (or want to start doing), you can find my never-fail goal-setting advice and template here, and Darren and I discuss goal-setting on the ProBlogger podcast here.

I’m very nosy, though, and terribly interested in blog goals, so I’d love to hear if you have any and what they are for this year? Do please let me know in the comments!

  • Hey Stacey,

    This is a new year which has brought up something amazing to everyone.

    The hard work is what makes the difference. I have many blogging and web development goals.

    I have started the journey.

    I would go with the social media marketing for sure this year.

  • Consistency is my goal for 2017!

    • ha I suspect that’s on a lot of lists!!!!

      • I’m going to be honest here.

        2016 went well for me. I made $3k per month at an average in sales from my blog. During black Friday sale, I made over $5k within a week.

        So for this year, my goals are:

        Increasing sales and traffic along with the social media engagement.

        I agree, I have less engagement (I never really gave a serious thought about it until now). So I’ll be mostly focusing on building raving fans around my site.

  • Hey Stacey,

    My main goal for 2017 to establish effective strategies for my business for genius productivity. And I’m looking to thrive healthy relationship with fresh community for better exchange of thought and opinions. Eventually, thanks for sharing your healthy thought with us.

    With best wishes,

  • Hey Stacy,

    I had never a goal with blogging. Right now it’s changing and hopefully I can post enough interesting posts on my personal blog.
    Thanks !

  • Hi Stacey,

    Great article, my goal for 2017 is to keep learning and implementing what I learn. I am a new blogger and so far I love it. Thank you for the post.

  • Hi Stacey,

    I just started blogging the 1st of this year. However I didn’t start a blog that I am passionate about until this month, and I have been loving every moment of it.

    I just have three goals this year, to build a loyal following/community. Help my readers with their problems and to make some money with this blog. After all, these things called bills keep coming my way ;) Best luck to you and your goals as well!
