What Are Your Internet Goals for 2009? Group Writing Project


Last year we had a group writing project where I asked the readers to share their goals for the upcoming year, and it was a great success, so I will be repeating it this month.


We all know the importance of having goals, both personally and professionally, right? Goals help organizations and individuals to focus their energy and to define priorities. Secondly, goals also allow us to evaluate our performance along the way.

Writing these goals down, on paper on your blog, therefore, is an excellent exercise to ensure that you will be running in the right direction.

How To Participate

In order to participate you simply need to write a post on your blog or website sharing your Internet goals for 2009. Once you are done writing that post, leave a comment below with the URL of your entry. Readers have until next Wednesday (December 17) to submit their post.

On the following Monday I will write a post with all the entries, including a brief summary and a link to original so that readers can check the blogs of the participants.

What Are Internet Goals?

Last year the writing project was focused on “blogging goals,” but this year I am extending it to “Internet goals.” Basically anything related to the Internet is valid. Here are some of examples of Internet related goals:

  • to reach 5,000 RSS subscribers on my blog
  • to reach 2,000 Twitter followers
  • to create 20 mini websites on different niches
  • to reach $10 per day of AdSense revenues
  • to launch my first eBook
  • to stop my addiction to social networks
  • to publish at least 100 videos on my YouTube account

You get the idea.

So what are you waiting for? Share with us your goals for 2009, and I am sure it will be an extra motivation to reach them.

    I posted my goals on my blog:

  • Mayooresan

  • Tschai

    After having jumped from one ‘genius idea’ to another my goals are very humble, but within my grasp and doable.

    1.Aytemir.com: Transform from a ‘gapfiller’ and experimental/incoherent blog to the original intend: supporting blog about my one-man (web 2.0) startup Uppedd.com (and the other forthcoming one).

    Should also become interesting read for other with the same aspirations.

    2.Upped.com: The concept is clear now…in my head. In 2009 the site should go live/beta. And conquer the world in 2010. To achieve these goals I’m gonna follow my own advices.

    3.Another, but on a smaller scale and more humble, blog/project should also see the daylight in 2009.
    BTW, great initiave/post.

    I’ve been putting a lot of effort into my latest venture at the moment which is a group of sites related to mobile phones… The first of which is ‘phone-insurance.co.uk’ My goals (all be it very miniscule compared to some of the mamoth goals listed above!) include:

    1. Achieve Page Rank 1 or above
    2. Achieve 50 unique visitors per day
    3. Make my first affiliate commission on the site

    My next goal will be to complete phone-unlocking.co.uk and then to purchase two or three other domains in the same area.

    Of course I would love to hit 100 subscribers on my blog too! Its small time I know, ut as with everyone, you have to start somewhere!

    We’re pretty focused on one particular reader group but the main thing now is to get more advertisers.

    We have the clicks but we need to focus more on getting the right kind of ads on the site by going out and searching for them ourselves.

    Other things are

    1) Better use of Flickr groups
    2) Better use of Youtube
    3) Integrate with Facebook more
    4) User created content direct into the site

    Sorry, then that was a wrong notion by me based on the Q&A sessions.

    Extremely sorry once again if I became the cause of demotivation for anybody.
