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 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 – 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.
