Blogging aspirations to share

I’m a goal oriented person, so as a neophyte blogger, I’m attempting to establish some goals for myself to help keep me focused and (hopefully) motivated too! I thought these might be helpful to others just getting started. If you have tips to share, I’d appreciate receiving them.

My blogging goals …

  1. Strive to write about what I know and the work I’m leading which I’m passionate about; In every post I’ll do my best to communicate clearly and hope to share information others find useful
  2. I hope to come to know my audience and keep the content that I post relevant to their interests and provide value to readers through sharing experiences and things I’ve learned along the way.
  3. I’ll work on getting to know people that I want to connect with by reading their blogs and when I find content is relevant , I’ll try to link to it
  4. Time is a challenge, but I’ll try to post at least one a week (I’m struggling with this one!)
  5. I’ll try to think about search optimizing my content with keywords and tags that are topical and relevant
  6. When I quote another blogger I’ll be sure to credit the creator
  7. When I post a  comment on another bloggers post, I will always be transparent about who I am and my affiliation
  8. Learn something new about blogging best practices weekly, build on these skills, contribute to discussions on topics of interest amongst the other bloggers I’m connected to
  9. I’ll follow the IBM Social Computing & Blogging Guidelines
  10. Remember, you’ve heard from other bloggers who have gone before you … Don’t give up, even if you’re struggling to find the time or what to write about …. blogging is not meant to be hard, it’s a journey, it should be fun!
