My personal ‘best of’ Blogging Goals to date

June 8th, 2006 · 32 Comments

I’ll have my one month blogging anniversary on Friday. 

To readers of Pittsburgh Homes Daily: I’ll most likely be on my way to Pittsburgh for the weekend (or packing for it), so I don’t expect to be blogging much.  Just a few posts here and there to keep up with my blogging goals.  I need some luck on the job and house front though, so I’m hoping to steer my traffic to other bloggers who participated in Darren Rowse’s ‘Blogging Goals Group’ Writing Project.  I really enjoyed reading through the submissions and I hope that you do as well.

To readers of Problogger: There’s a ton of submissions (and I expect more today, the last day, so get yours in!).  I decided that rather than a top 5 or 10, I would highlight various blogs and submissions that interested me, for those who haven’t been through them yet.  If I didn’t mention your submission, I’m very sorry, it was most likely an inability to think of anything clever to say on my part rather than any failure of yours.  Happy surfing (in no particular order)!

1. Best goals, of course.

2. Second best goals post (and most likely to revise a blog post).

3. Best single goal: holistic village development.

4. Newest blogs to participate.

5. Best plea for help.

6. Best graphic header.  Is that Darren in the front?  Runner-up.

7. Least likely to complete a blog goal.

8. Most likely to meditate over blog goals.

9. Best blog goals as voted by my Shih Tzus.  Runner-up.

10. Most likely to shout goals from a mountain.

11. Most deserving of a comment.

12. Best defense after a comment.

13. Most in need of another problogger group writing project to reach goal.

14. Blog post most likely to hypnotize reader.

15. Blog most likely to hypnotize reader.

16. My pick for most likely to be successful at blogging.

17. Best use of bold and bullet points.

18. Most creative.

19. Line most likely to be spoken by Alicia Silverstone in Clueless 2.

20. Neatest niche.

21. Blog title that would make the best movie title.

22. Best jedi mind trick.

23. Best post from the owner of a blog I’ve visited before.

24. Most intriguing title.

25. Most intriguing picture.

26. Most intriguing link within blogging goals.

27. Blog I idolize.

28. Blog I subscribed to.

29. Most likely to have spent more time as a student than me.

30. Simplest post.

31. Post that I will have to read again later because it made my head spin.

32. Blogging Goals title worthy of Shakespeare.

33. Least likely to need a sanity check.

34. Fastest fingers (and most likely to be on the computer).

35. Blog post most worthy of two links here.

36. Blog post that most captured how I am feeling after my endeavour to read every blogging goals submission to date. 

37. Best new word — probject.

38. Best motivational blog post.

39. Best description of blogging — “a penny for my thoughts.”

40. Link that surprised me the most (I read one of the blogs mentioned regularly).

41. Highest tech submission and best of the procrastinators.

42. Best LOTR reference.

    Hi, I’ve gone over your list and I have to agree with you that it’s very hard to pic 5 or even 10 posts considering how many bloggers participate in this contest.

    Also, I’d like to thank you on behalf of my partner and I for including us in your list 😉 Cheers.

    Perhaps Darren just has a secret love for me. The type of love that two men have when .. I’ll shutup now.

    Thanks so much for including us on your list! The list itself is wonderful and I’m sure I’ll spend lots of time (when I have it) visiting the other blogs you’ve listed!

    I feel all warm and fuzzy inside seeing our post listed as Most Creative! Needless to say I’m glad that the post came off as creative rather than silly!

    […] My craziness has been noticed by alike minded crazy people. LOL What an honor to be acknowledged my post “The Great Determinations of Mayvelous” as “Second best goals post” by Pitts Burgh Homes Daily Blog. My sincere thanks. […]

    On behalf of all the “procrastinators,” I would like to say thank you for the kind link–even if I arrived one day late to your party!

    More than anything, thanks for this thoughtful list, it’s really helping me sort through this mountain of posts. I’ll keep reading!

    I’m glad everyone likes the list. Thanks for visiting! We should all plan to revisit our goals in like 3 months and see how we are doing. Maybe someone should suggest it to Darren?

    Thanks for mentioning my blog. I guess I should look into writing movie scripts instead of blogging:)

    Goal Post Posts!…

    As I noted yesterday, Darren Rowse just published his complete, fantastical list of contributions of blogging goal posts. Over one hundred bloggers scored and linked the heck out of these blogged goals (as the World Cup rages, I can’t……
