Personal Goals that Motivate Me
A few blog posts ago, I wrote about three personal goals that I had. Each one of those goals had a time limit and I could have easily achieved them...if I had the proper motivation.
My weekend came and went. I found that I had reached one of those goals, almost reached the second, and didn't even work on the third. That is perfectly okay though. To me that means I need to find new personal goals that motivate me to get my booty movin and get the work done.
I'm not sure exactly what happened to me tonight, but I got inspired. I wrote long posts on my site (one littered with affiliate links and one without...for now). Both posts are meant to help people who prefer to workout from home.
All this great feeling of accomplishment then crashes into nothing when I realize my site still has no ranking (or is ranked so bad I cannot find it). I sort of feel like my dog, Red, at the end of our walks. He rushes through the beginning, and then, at the end, I almost have to drag him along to keep up.
So it's time to look at my goals and decide on some better ones that may help me move forward instead of drag behind the pack.
1) Figure out this SEO keyword business better. It seems none of my website keywords are very good.
2) Get more social. I've never been the best at social media (especially pinterest...I still can't figure out what the heck is going on there), but if I can figure out how to leverage it better then maybe I can reach my target audience better.
3) Although I will keep adding posts to my site I will work on my patience. I cannot expect a site that has less than 10 posts to suddenly start ranking first page with keywords that have a QSR in the 100-200 range. I do have some lower QSR keywords, but they are getting quite hard to find for my niche...time to get creative!
