Think about it. If you are just writing posts for the sake of writing posts, what is the end goal? Ever think about that or these questions?
- What is the reason you are writing?
- What do you want to get out of your blog?
- What do you wish to achieve at the end of all of this?
- What is success to you when it comes to blogging?
Think if we just wrote to write. What if we didn’t know our end goal or what we were working for? This is why setting blog goals and knowing your blog’s vision inside and out is so important.
A blog’s vision to me is a specific statement about where you want your blog to be. It’s like your mission statement and the purpose of your blog. What are you trying to get out of your blog? What is the main reason you are blogging?
Setting a vision or mission statement is pretty easy. Simply state what you want your blog to achieve in the long term. Maybe you don’t know everything you want it to achieve. That’s OK. You can always go back and change your vision as you continue to blog. This statement should be used to help keep you motivated and to keep you seeing the end result. This is also a statement that you don’t need to share with anyone else. It’s for your personal purpose to keep you on track and to remember why you started blogging in the first place.
But, because I am really nice, I will share my blog’s vision with you:
“The goal of Chits and Giggles is to provide a true representation of my life for all of the readers. This includes everything from planning our wedding, to new recipes, to blogging tips and tricks and finally photography or Photoshop 101.”
The first sentence of my vision states clearly that I want to provide a true representation of my life. Well, I think I am doing that pretty well. If I am not, please let me know.
What is your blog vision?
