10 Blog Goals for 2008

Blog Goals for 2008

While I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, I do have a list of my 10 blog goals for 2008:

1 – Reach 1000 subscribers. I’m about 1/4 of the way there, but still think that this is easily reachable.

2 – Not only do more interviews, but be interviewed as well. Appear on podcasts as well.

3 – Form more strategic partnerships. This could be overlapping specialties, or blogging in other places.

4 – Start doing paid reviews. There are plenty of good products out there that should be reviewed.

5 – Sell advertising slots. While this blog has been virtually ad-free, I’ll be dropping in a few tastfully placed ad spots.

6 – Post Frequency. Try to post a minimum of 2 posts per week.

7 – Guest Bloggers. I’m not crazy about guest bloggers, but MikeonTV was really good last time around, so I may have him back on.

8 -Big links. Would like some more mentions on sites like Techcrunch, Mashable, SearchEngineLand, and Download Squad. A mention on BigList would be great as well (hint, hint) 🙂

9 – Use Twitter to get the word out. Watch Twitter closely this year, my friends. More on this later.

10 – Avoid social media burnout. Things like being away from the computer and with family come to mind 🙂

    I don’t have much to offer, except I added your feed in 08 already. I am impressed by your goals and the super stardom that comes with them. I have been following you around and I can see you meeting these goals very easily. Best of luck and happy blogging.
