So…what’s a mission statement?

To put it simply, a mission statement (can also be referred to as your message or tagline) is a short blurb that summarizes what your blog is all about, how it does what it does, and who it’s for. It defines your purpose and gives your readers an idea of what they can expect from your blog by telling them how you can help them or how you will bring them value.

I strongly believe every blogger should have one because it:

  • keeps you on track + organized
  • keeps you motivated
  • gives your blog structure
  • helps you make decisions

Before I created a mission statement for my blog I continually stressed out every week because I had no idea what to post. Sometimes I would fall into ruts where I felt so uninspired, but still wanted to put out content that it compromised the quality of it. Once I developed my statement it provided me with direction about what kind of content to create. Now I can fill up a month’s worth of blog post ideas (and then some!)

How do you create one?

Your mission statement infuses your goals, purpose, audience, and values into 1-2 sentences. When writing it, think of your “what,” “who,” and “how.” Here are some questions to guide you:

  • What type of content will you provide your audience?
  • Who is your target audience?
  • How will you provide your “what”?

Remember, your statement should be short, simple, and specific. Everyone’s will be different, but you should remember to include your what, who, and how.
