Goals Update February 2010

Every month I like to focus set some goals so I figure I better get some out in the public so I can hold myself to them.  1st February is a short month 28 days and were on day 3 already so this is going to be a ruff month to get a ton done but lets see what can happen.  So far I am still pump and January was my best month ever.

Last month I did a post about goals and I listed some of my goals for 2010.  Below I going to comment and see where I am at with them.

My post about goal for 2010

My Goals for 2010

- Be more consistent (doing better here)

- 20 blog post per month for 1st 2 months of the year (challenge)
In January I ended up with 16 which is the most ever for me.  I would have been very close but spend the last weekend in the hospital with my 5 year old.  This is a short month but I will try to hit this Goal as I really think and am starting to see that more content = more traffic

- Run Contests and Enter other Contest
Monthly Comment Contest – THE MONEY CULT
I kicked this contest off need to wrap it up for Jan and do a better job with it moving forward. I expected more but figure I failed cause I didn’t promote it enjoy or make my reader aware.  I will raise more awareness around this for this month.

- Guest Post
I wrote a few guest post on the blog engage Blog, I will look to do more here and elsewhere

- Reduce Alex Rank to 100k by year end
I haven’t started to focus on this yet but I am studying and watching what others blogs do that are in this club.  My Rank is dropping as a result of regular content, increased traffic and the Alexa bar on my page.  I will be doing a bunch of post on this as some point along with some Alexa chain reviews.  Currently 438,123, and 143,821 USA I havn’t been watching this to know the trend, One one rank is dropping 3 month is increasing.

- Exercise 15 minutes a day period!
Did ok with this but not seeing the result I want.  I joined the YMCA Sunday and will be attending 5:45 AM Boot Camp 3 times a week for one hour plus whatever else I can do to loose some weight and fell better about myself.  Lets just say I can’t feel my legs today after the 1st day.  I want to be able to take my shirt off in April when I come to Florida for vacation in 3 months. I sick of looking like crap in vacation pics.

- Create 3 products or services
I decided on my 1st product is going to be a fun e-book with the help of my kids.  I posted about it last week Top Secret Fun Kids Food Recipes I already have this started and will be finishing and launching it this month.  A lot of my focus will be on this for the month.  I really just want to launch a product end to end so I can learn from the whole experience and share it with others.

Below are some of the idea I was tossing around these are on hold for now.

xx –tee-shirt

xx –Membership site

xx – Workshops

xx – Small Business Website Setup and SEO consultation

- Build 5 Kick Ass Websites for others
I am doing a website for my brother in law for his Farm and Auto Repair shop.  The basic goals of this are to do a simple site and make sure it ranks for local traffic for relevant keywords.  He is sick of paying for yellow pages and wants to move online as it is a way better value.

- Learn to make graphics
I am getting a little better learning a few things will see if I can ever become efficient at this.  I will be doing the graphic’s for the Top Secret Kid Food E-Book so lets hope that doesn’t slow me down or look to cheap work case I have my kids do it in crayons since it is a kid book.

- Give out more link luv
I did better here I know I hooked Extreme John up a bit and some others.  Look for more of this.  Another reason to comment here.

-Affiliate marketing Plan for each month
Last month I started with my Dick Tracy Tuesday’s then switch to promoting David Risley Blog Master Club for the 2nd half the month once I caught wind he was opening his doors again.  I really like what David does  I will do a more detailed wrapup on both of these.  Both program resulting in a fair amount of clicks and I did end up making $197 so far with David program so I will take that to kick off the year with some sales.  This month I going to be doing some affiliate post about webhosting mine is up for renewal so I will review my options and post about it.

-Update side bars every month
So far I been good with this, I actually just pulled down a few more to rotate them for the month.

What about You?

  3. 2010. The year for change. The year for redemption. The year that I can make a difference. Hold On. That's exactly the same thing I said last year and there wasn't much in the way of change, difference or redemption. This year I need to make these three things happen. This year I need to set goals…
