Would you like to know how I’m doing on my goals for this month? Each month, I sit down and evaluate the progress I have made in the previous months. I check out my strengths and weaknesses and then develop some goals that will improve the soft areas of my site!
Sometimes I hit the goals, and sometimes I don’t, but either way I still end up improving my site which benefits both myself and my readers!
Over the past few months I have had goals such as: improving my subscriber numbers, keeping up with my postings (at least 3-4 per week), writing an eBook, improving my Twitter numbers, writing guest posts on other sites, and the list goes on and on.
Goals For September, 2011
Here are the goals I made for myself this month:
- Continue posting 3-4 posts per week– I passed with flying colors this week! I posted 4 times and have provided some great articles! I hope you enjoyed them.
- Sit down and work on my eBook at least once a week– While I have not sat down and physically written the missing chapters of my book, I have brainstormed quite a lot while I’m driving or working on my house. I now have some great ideas for the book as a whole, as well as some extras that I can throw in with the sale. 🙂
- Grow my subscriber numbers to 350– My subscriber numbers continue to grow without slowing down. Today, Feedburner says that I have 644 subscribers! If you have been following my site for more than a couple of weeks, you should know that my overall goal is to attain 1,154 subscribers by April, 2012. Based on this month alone, this goal should have a check in the box by December. 🙂
Maintaining this site has been a blast. I enjoy the challenge of posting every other day, and I love providing information that helps my readers! I can’t wait to see where my online ventures take me in the future!
There have been quite a few excellent posts this week around the net. Here’s a listing of the articles I enjoyed!

How to Invest in Rental Reat Estate: A Conversation with My Hairdresser – by Passive Family Income
My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
