Purpose of TheFireViking – track Financial Independence goal
My purpose with starting this blog was to find a place to write down my thoughts and strategies concerning me and my boyfriend’s goal to become financially independent within the next decade, not setting strict blog goals. As I started writing I realized there were a whole community of people out here doing the same thing. An awesome community, may I add. This has led me to put more and more time into this blog and my interactions with the community around it, up to the point where I now want to clearly define this as a sub-project to the overarching goal of financial independence.
Fireviking now gets its own blog goals, hooray!
How many readers does a blog have after one month? Will I try to make money on my blog?
I am not yet ready to venture into the whole business of affiliate links, advertisements on the site and so on, but I do want to start setting some goals for myself on here nonetheless (if it is not already blatantly obvious, I am incisively competitive, and goal-setting is one of my favorite things).
The children of TheFireViking.com has sprung out onto Twitter, Instagram and to some extent, Pinterest (seriously struggling with this though) and I want to set monthly goals for all of these to track their progress.
When Fireviking is 4 weeks old, the following are my goals:
Blog views: 1000
Twitter followers: 100
Instagram followers: 100
Is this realistic? Or am I putting under-achieving goals here? I am realizing that these numbers probably grow a bit exponentially in the beginning but have no idea of how much, so didn’t really account for that.
How did your blog develop in the first month when you started?
