    For any project you do you should set targets, the key is to set them to be attainable. Like your goal of 100 UVs per day. Congrats and beating your goal, time for a new one.

    Wow, congratulations. That's quite a feat in itself. I have a brand spanking-new blog too, and my target is to earn money with it before the domain name expires. My aim is to earn at least $100 or more to kick-start and support my blogging passion.

    Setting targets in advance are great. I do them. This way you feel you have achieved something. You don't feel that if you don't ever plan targets. Keeps you motivated.

    I like the way your target for your blog is very clear and specific April. You focused on achieving a certain amount of unique visitors per day within a certain time frame. I like this because you didn't confuse it with other issues such as selling ad space or getting comments. It is generally not a good idea to overburden a blog with ads until you have it up and running for some time with regular visitors and good traffic levels.

    I just started mine a month ago. I haven't reach my target of expectation to have at least 50 unique visitors a day but I'm still working on it. So far I'm relying solely on Adsense for the revenue but that is too little to count. Maybe I will include affiliates as well so that there are more possibilities to monetize the site.

    I guess when I release my first blog. I will be tring to gain 100 uniques. After that I will double it. I will keep going. I will plan targets before I start, however for now that's a rough idea I have.

    You got that right Blue. Keep in mind that if you do not hit a target it is not the end of the world. Try out figure out why though. Was it something you did or was it something beyond you control?
