My Blogging Plans To Keep Progressing In 2017

Profile photo of Sherman Smith Submitted by Sherman Smith January 16, 2017 Website :

I do have to say that 2016 treated me pretty well.

There were a bunch of epiphanies which made it the year of enlightenment as far as self realization, self confidence, and of course blogging.

In 2016 I learned how to work smarter which allowed me to progress even further, attract more opportunities, and gain much more results.

I realized working harder only brings more limitations which at some point will make you stagnant and get you to the point of burning out.

You become that hamster in the wheel, running fast and yet not going anywhere.

Once you come out of that mindset and focus on the tasks that’s going to make you more productive, it feels as if each day is “renewed” which gives you the energy to keep going. Especially through those “vanity” metrics you see in your analytics.

You become more excited about the future tasks you’re about to do, leaving you in suspense each time you take them on. You truly feel like a kid again.

Many of you may feel disappointed in the previous year and want to see how you can make 2017 better.

In this post I will share with you my plans for 2017 and what I learned from 2016.

    Hi Sherman!

    That was an interesting read for me. I like to make resolutions for New Year as well, willing to become better, more productive.

    I wish you to complete all the goals you established in your blog post.

    I also found some inspiration for myself as well, for example, focusing on more promotion is definitely the one I would like to complete as well.

    Good luck!

      Hey Krystsina,

      I’m glad that you founds some inspiration from this post.

      I actually don’t make New Years resolutions. If there’s something to be done, I usually just go ahead and do it.

      But for others, making New Years resolutions is right for them and I thought I would write this post to give some ideas.

      Either way it goes, we can always take something from each other that can help us progress.

      Thanks for stopping by Krystsina! Have a great week!

    I totally agree with you.
    Working smarter is far different from working harder because you can barely sustain the tempo of working flat out.
    I am trying to streamline my work and find ways to do it better this 2017. I enjoyed reading your post and wish you the best of the year.

    Hi Sherman,
    It is indeed a great joy to meet you again on these precious pages of Kingged.
    I am so glad to note that we got a re-entry to this amazing pages. :-)
    Happy to note your new vision and new resolutions for the year.
    Good, ones, try to fulfill it!
    I generally do not take any decision as such in the beginning of the year, but try to do something extra to fill the gap of previous year. There are many reason to come to this decision, the major one is that, i cannot fulfill the decision i take, so i stopped taking such resolutions, that does not mean that i don’t have any plan or purpose in my future years. instead there are so many to do, and will try to fill the gap of the previous years unfulfilled ones. Of course you can find some of the plans/ not resolutions for this year in the CommentLuv link below.
    Your decisions are really wonderful in relation to blogging.
    I wish all the best to fulfill it in time.
    May you have a great year ahead.
    ~ Phil

      Hey Philip,

      Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve seen you here. I’m glad that you stopped by.

      Thanks for upvoting this post on

      This is my plans for 2017 which I actually started before the New Year. There are some other goals i want to accomplished but this is the gist of it.

      Resolutions are great for some, but for people like us, we just make those plans when needed. It doesn’t take a new year to do this. I’ll check out your plans later when I have more free time.

      Have a great, prosperous year Philip!

    Hello Sherman,

    Great post and I like how you have highlighted your goals for the year. Helps in staying focused and streamlining your high-impact activities

    My major focus for 2017 is promoting my blog and building my mailing list. I started to take my blog seriously from February and created an opt-in offer – Startup Launch Plan Workbook to meet my list goal

    I am happy to announce that I have hit my first 100 subscribers and on course to 200.

    These are my high impact activities and will help me grow my brand and keep me focused. Thanks so much for sharing yours.
