When I first started blogging, it was more of a diary where I shared my stories, drunken adventures, and cubicle rants. Since then, my blog has evolved a few times.
Finding A Direction
Over the last few weeks, I have really taken some time to sit down and think of a direction. I knew it had to be done because without a clear direction there is no place to go. After digging deep, I concluded that my blog is about the digital nomad lifestyle.
In other words, I want to focus on my journey to make a living working from my computer. I want to share my adventures of not having a “real job” and all of the pros and cons that come along with them. I also want to share my travel stories from around the world since my main reason for wanting to be a digital nomad is the ability to work from anywhere.
Not Just Stories
However, I do not want to simply focus on stories. I also want to share my knowledge and give everyone tips on how to follow in my footsteps. I will share the things that have worked as well as the things that haven’t. I will continue to post how-to’s on blogging, freelancing, and traveling. I also plan on creating a few products relating to all of those topics. I have accumulated a ton of information over the last year and cannot wait to let it all out.
Ask Yourself Now…Not Later
That’s enough about my direction. The reason I wrote this post was to clarify how important it is to pick a direction now. When I first started writing, I constantly told myself I would morph this thing as time went on. To my luck, it has worked pretty well. But it hasn’t made it easy for me. Choosing a direction for your blog now will make it WAY more easier to reach your goals. It will give you a clear idea of where you want to be and what you need to do to get there. Here’s a few questions you should ask yourself:
- What Is My Blog About?
- Who Is My Target Audience?
- What Do I Plan To Accomplish With My Blog?
- Do I Want To Make Money From My Blog?
- If So, How Much Money?
Of course, there are just some basic questions. The real key is to figure out where you want to be. Do you want to be the most popular blog in a certain niche? Or do you just want to keep blogging as a hobby? The sooner you figure out your direction, the sooner you will get to your destination. Do you know where you want to get? If so, please feel free to share your goals below!
