Happy new year! I hope 2022 is treating you well so far. Like everyone else, the beginning of a new year is an excellent time to set my goals. It is an ideal moment to think about last year and figure out things that worked and those that didn’t.
Life has a funny way of getting things in your way. But, I do believe that having a plan is always better than not having one at all. 2021 offered me tons of unexpected twists and turns. Some for the worst but most of it, for the better.
Before, I didn’t have work and was about to become homeless. It got so desperate that I started asking for help from other people and was called names because of it. Now, I found work and am making a living doing what I love.
When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it. It sounds naive but, I believe that dreams come true if you work hard. That is why I need to set personal and professional goals and work on them.
Blogging Goals For 2022
This blog, despite its silly name, is a labor of love. I use it to showcase my skill as a writer and leverage it for work. On top of that, I also make money off this blog via Patreon. That is why I’m particular about the quality of my content. It is only reasonable that I improve each aspect of this blog.
With that said, here are my blogging goals for this year.
Reach 7,000 – 8,000 Followers
I want to expand my 6,317 followers to 8,000 followers by the end of the year. To reach this goal, I will hold contests and be proactive on social media. I am intent on giving potential readers a reason to follow me.
I will check my analytics each month to check my progress.

Get Two New Patrons
This blog generates revenue via Patreon. I got a bit occupied at work and was unable to create content. Because of that, there has been a significant drop in my patrons. Hoping to recover, I aim to gain at least two new patrons. To attract patrons, I will post at least one piece of content on Patreon daily.
These contents and perks are:
- Life updates
- Photos and Videos
- Exclusive Content
At the same time, I am working on promoting it on all my platforms. To track my progress, I will set an updated goal on Patreon.
Generate $65 Revenue On Patreon Each Month
Besides the Patron Goal, I also want to increase my monthly revenue in Patreon. This would allow me to get tools that would make content creation easier. Same with my New Patrons Goal, I will spend time creating better Patreon content daily. As well as focus on giving you value-added perks. I will also set an updated goal on Patron to track my progress.
If you love my work and would like to help me out with my goals, please check out my Patreon. For as low as $1/month, get to enjoy bonus content and take a glimpse of my creative process. Help me maintain this blog and provide quality content.

Blogging is tedious work. But with your support, I can put out the best content possible.
Get 24,000 Views
I want to improve my 20,000 views to 24,000 by the end of the year. There has been a significant drop in my 2021 views due to my work. So, I want to catch up by writing relevant SEO content to increase my traffic. Also, I will promote my work on social media. Same with my follower goal, I will refer to my analytics each month to check my progress.
Create Content with More Than 900 Words
High word counts don’t mean quality content, but it’s an indicator of comprehensiveness. I want to write quality content with at least 900 words. To achieve this goal, I will spend half of my time making content on researching the subject matter. I will also post regular content once a week, giving me time to explore my topics. For consistency, I will establish an approximate word count for each content.
Generate An Average of 140 Likes Each Post
Like word counts, Likes alone are not an indicator of quality. But, it does give me feedback on what kind of content I should pursue. I want to increase my average Likes from 119 to 140 each post. To get this, I will spend time studying your interests. I will check my analytics for my progress on this goal.
Accumulate An Average of 14 Comment Each Post
Again, comments are not an indicator of quality. But, it is a way to receive direct feedback. Besides that, it is also a way to show you how much I appreciate you. Work has kept me busy over the past year, and I apologize for missing a lot of your comments. This year, I will make it my goal to spend time replying to your comments. I will check my dashboard to see if I’m making any improvements.
The absence of quality is the essence of rationality. If you removed it, only rationality would remain unchanged. Numbers are not a clear indicator of quality. Yet, it does work as a way to manage quality. Measurable goals give you a tangible and obtainable means to measure your progress.
Goals are not perfect, and it changes as the days pass. But it gives you insights into what you need to do to achieve your dreams. It allows you to work in the direction you want to be. Letting you focus on the aspects of your life that needs attention.
So there you have it, these are my blogging aspirations for 2022. I am hopeful that this blog can lead to more work. Or better yet, making this blog my full-time job.
