It’s the start of a brand new year, and chances are that at some point you made some New Year’s resolutions.

These are all great goals that will help you achieve in some area, or perhaps eliminate a problem or bad habit. But they all focus on what you want to achieve as a blogger. There’s another key element you may want to include in at least some of your goals.

Your readers.

Instead of thinking about what you want to achieve in 2022, try thinking about what you’d like your readers to achieve. What resolution would you like to set for them?

One approach you can take to come up with a possible goal for your readers is to think about removing negatives. Ask yourself questions like:

You can also can look at it from a more positive angle with questions like:

Who are your readers? What are their pains, obstacles and problems? And what are their hopes and dreams?

Identify one thing you can help your readers work on in the year ahead.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with setting your own goals for more traffic, income, comments and reader engagement. But flipping it around and looking at the change you want to see in your readers may also take care of some of your own goals.

Pinpointing how you want to help your readers during 2022 will help you work out:

What’s your goal for your readers in 2022? Write it down, ideally in a single sentence.

If you’re struggling to come up with a goal for your readers, ask them what they’d to achieve (in relation to your topic). You could ask on Facebook, or even run a survey.

Once you’ve written down that resolution, put it somewhere you look every day. For example, you could put it next to your computer so whenever you sit down to write it reminds you of what you’re trying to help your readers achieve.

That resolution might be the starting point for:

You might want to announce the goal you’ll be helping readers work towards, especially if they helped you choose it.

For instance, you could say, “Since sending out that survey, I’ve thought a lot about what I want to achieve with this blog in 2022. And I’ve decided I want to help you…” and then state whatever it is you’ll be helping them achieve.

I’d love to hear what goals you come up with for your readers in the year ahead. Please share your ideas in the comments below.
