Blogging 201 – My Blogging Goals

I signed up for WordPress’ Blogging 201. I keep saying that I’m going to whip this blog into shape and by golly, I’m going to do it. I’ve done a lot of revamping and overall I’m pretty happy with the way it’s turning out.

Here are my three most immediate goals

Stick to my blogging schedule. I have a blogging schedule, which is quite doable; but I just haven’t been consistent with it. So, for next year my number one goal is to become a more consistent blogger.

  • Top Ten Tuesday
  • Wednesday’s Lyrics
  • The Friday 56
  • The 2nd and 4th Saturday post a review

Promote and get 5 to 10 participants for Wednesday’s Lyrics by December 31st. I started Wednesday’s Lyrics because I thought it was a good idea. Actually, I still do and again consistency is my issue nor have I promoted it.

Write Reviews that don’t sound so academic-like. As a former Literature major and English teacher, I always find myself struggling with writing review that sounds like I’m writing a reach paper versus a review that will encourage someone to read it.

So these are my three immediate goals.

    here is my question for Day 3. How much time do you devote to blogging per day? Does it take you away from other things or fulfill you?

      Hi Brenda, during the winter months I spend much more time on my blog and reading other blogs. But during the spring, summer, and fall months I’m usually out doing some whitewater activity or camping or hiking or something outdoors.

        Thank you. I am new to this and at this point with two blogs and three Blogging U courses it is a full time job.

    Hi Erica, It’s nice to know you are on blogging 201. I am too. And like you, one of my goals is to have a consistent blogging schedule starting next year. Giving my blog a face-life is also a key goal for this holiday season. Again, thank you for visiting my new blog, 🙂
