If you sweat the numbers but don't do #6 you will have a hard time getting there.

Number watching is a sure fire way IMHO to not be successful in finding your voice and passion.

I guess my question is why are those your goals? In other words what does hitting those goals get you? Basically they serve as an indirect mesurement of how good your content is and how active and respected in the community (how ever that community is defined) that you are targetting.

I'll do what I can to help, but with the American Gladiators returning this year, I'll have less free time.

I don't know you at all, but you just started following me on Twitter for whatever reason.

Dude, I'm worried about you. Your stated goals are not ends, they are means. By definition, goals should be ends, not means.

High readership for its own sake seems antithetical to the Christian life. "I must increase so that I must increase."

So, no, I won't be helping you to make your goals. Not trying to be a jerk, just letting you know.
