Being that it’s a new year, a lot of people are a making plans for their blogs. The topic for this mini podcast episode is all about blog resolutions.
The goal of this podcast episode is to get you thinking on how you can improve your blog and overall brand. It’s also to emphasize that once you’ve made plans, follow through with them. Your plans don’t have to be elaborate, but they should be ones that can be tackled.
Don’t let another year roll by, only to keep doing the same thing. Yes, some of it may be working, but things do change. You will gain or lose an audience because of it. It’s up to you to be in tune with your stats and what your readers want that you may not be covering yet, or not covering enough of.
This is a mini episode, and is about 10 minutes long. As usual, I’ve also posted this podcast to my Youtube channel. Feel free to ask questions. Also feel free to list your blog resolutions for this year. I’d love to hear them. Also, if you consult with bloggers over making new plans for their site, even if it might not be a blog resolution for the New Year, what advice do you have that’s not said in this podcast episode?

Hello Nile, Great podcast my friend! I do enjoy listening to your advice you make me feel like anything is possible.
I have made a few goals for my blog and I am so ready to take action on my goals for 2015.
Thanks for sharing..Chery :))

This year is the year to finally quit the excuses, stop wasting time exploring all over the web, and to make solid commitments to follow through with my intentions. It started in December when I purchased several programs and trainings to help me create my webinars and funnels. But then my desktop chose to not cooperate and the failing hard drive made me stop in my tracks and deal with it. So I could not move forward, could not watch the trainings (I did catch some of them) and I certainly could not implement what I was learning. The one thing I could do was to take care of my body. So I made a point to get to the health club almost every day, first to complete my 365 miles in 2014 (a challenge in one of my Facebook groups) and then to start the year strong.
What I realized is that my intention and commitment is everything. Now I am getting to the health club almost every day because I have made a commitment to at least double my workouts from last year- and it feels wonderful. Next step is to make that same commitment to my business, working on it instead of getting distracted by less important tasks and other people’s products and courses.

Hi Nile… great podcast! Although I’ve known you for quite a while through FB and B3, this is the first time I’ve ever heard your voice! I’m glad it’s not too late to start taking action on what I’ve been planning for my blog. I’d love to have begun on Jan. 1, but that never happens. Thanks for the good advice.
Rachel Lavern says
Oh well, I am going to be doing the same thing with my blog this year. Just less of it unless I find someone I’d like to write my blog posts for me while I nurture my corporate clients.

I just have to say that I totally agree with you about the word entrepreneur :). My main blog resolution is to blog weekly again. I got out of the habit, stopped using an editorial calendar and ended up blogging only about twice a month. And I have asked my readers what they want to read about (I always do that). I have some plans based on that. I agree, too, about following through with goals – – gotta take action and develop new habits.

Nice podcast, Nile.
One of the nice things about New Year’s is that is always makes us take stock of the status of things, and think of how we’d like to improve.
Our blogs are not different, and you’ve given some great suggestions for the blogging entrepreneur to consider. The main thing is to take immediate action on the most important changes you’d like to implement, and get things started. Then you can work on other things after that, according to your list of priorities for changes you’d like to make for your blog.

I have returned to this post and so glad I did. As I shared in a previous comment, I have made a solid New Year’s resolution to double my workouts and to do that consistently, almost every day. I have done that quite well for most of January except while away at a 5 day event. But as soon as I returned to my home, I got right back into my regular workout routine. My blog, however, has been less of a focus for a few weeks now. I was just so busy and my mind has been swimming with possible topics.
I love your suggestion to ask my readers what they might like to read about. I am making a new blog resolution now to get organized and start thinking clearly about what my next blogging topics will be.
Thanks again Nile.
Yes at the beginning of the year I did make resolutions for my blog which I am following so far. I have learned some lessons from your podcast especially in reaching out to my readers and also connecting with them.

I’ve been thinking about my blog a lot lately, and I’m not sure what to do. I’ve changed my direction in my business, and the blog doesn’t really fit. So, any new years resolutions for my Blog are going to be major, and I’m kiind of putting them off!
