People create blogs for a range of different reasons, but before you start a blog it’s always a good idea to set some time aside to work out your blog goals.
In the beginning, you’ll want to create an overarching 1-year goal that is based on the SMART framework. A SMART goal is specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound. This goal can then be broken down into quarterly, monthly and then weekly goals depending on how often you’ll be blogging.
Here are some example blog goals:
Blog Goal: To Create a Portfolio of work
To create 10 web pages showcasing work I have completed for 10 clients within a year. Add an informative about webpage https://womenlovetech.com/7-essential-elements-awesome-page/ and a contact webpage.
