Today’s assignment: consider what you want to accomplish with your blog. Write down three concrete goals you want to achieve.
When I took the Blogging 101 class, I connected with so many new bloggers and learned a lot of tricks with WordPress. I was very impressed with the course so I decided to follow the Blogging 201 course. I wasn’t able to get into the registration to see the private thread for them, but I can still do the assignments! 🙂
Here are my goals:
- Publish three times each week
- Establish a new weekly feature on my blog by the end of Feb (I’m thinking of doing Wordless Wednesdays or maybe Sunday Morning Poetry…?) to start posting the first week in March.
- Gain 200 new WordPress followers for my blog by my birthday: April 4th (Current count 744).
Posting three times a will will probably be a huge challenge for me! So hopefully I can find enough to babble about! 🙂
Good luck with your goals 🙂 I started blogging last August – its a lot of work but very rewarding especially when you start making connections with other bloggers 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Bet of luck to you!
Good luck with all your aims. WordPress is great!
Totally agree! Thank you for stopping by!
Hope you do as well as you hope to. As a follower, I will be looking for you. (Pay no attention to the woman whose photo is sideways; Gravatar messed her up big time. Probably a a sham ‘wizard’ to boot!)
HAHAH! You’re funny – I had that same issue when I first put my pic up. Mine is almost 2 years old so I def don’t remember how I fixed it Haha! Good luck! 🙂
Sounds like very good attainable goals, Good luck. 🙂
I admire your choice of goals – seems like a long way off for me right now.
Of course, I did manage to register for the class.(You do have a sense of humor, right?)
Oh no! def not! You got this!
Dream big! 🙂
Nice goals! Posting a lot can be hard, but a weekly feature will definitely help with that! I’ll make you one step closer to your third goal 😛
I’ve always been such a sporadic blogger. I’m hoping this helps!
Good luck, I’m sure you can do it!
Thanks! Much appreciated!
Good luck, Megan. I was in 101 and now 201. But haven’t set any goals.
That’s okay! Better late than never!
Goals are a wonderful way to keep your eye on the goal!
I think the thrice-a-week calendar is a very attainable goal. It need not be the same days each week, however!
Agreed! I’d be in trouble if I had to pick specific days!
All the best with your goals, Megan.
You have a brilliant blog, I’m sure you’ll surprise yourself by reaching your goals sooner than you think 🙂
Thank you so much! I don’t know about “brilliant,” but i’ll take your word for it! 🙂
You’re welcome! Oh yes please take my word for it! 🙂
Good luck with your goals…they are doable!
Thanks for the follow! Love your “About” page, and the look and feel of your blog. Will poke around and see the sights! 🙂
I’m glad to see that they’re teaching blogging classes these days — it’s such a fantastic way to communicate with like-minded people all over the world! Good luck on reaching your goals. 🙂
Well! Very interesting. I need to write almost a post a week. Regards from Barcelona, Spain
It’s been a while now for me, too. 😦 Whoops!
Awesome goals! 🙂
I also love setting some goals that I would love to achieve with my blog and refreshing them to motivate myself, so all the best and don’t give up.
Reblogged this on Her Oriel Closet and commented:
Have some goals to push you on!
Take a look at this for example.
Hey Megan – I like your plan. Liked, and followed. I post three times a week (which will seem like a breeze when this A to Z Challenge is over – it’s not easy to post every day!) I’ve found that a calendar and a Trello board for ideas helps me stay on track.
Hey Megan! My birthday is the 4th April too! Good Luck with your goals!
Yeah April 4th babies! 🙂 Thank you!
Wow, three a week, that is very ambitious. I can’t even get down to one a week. But keep up the work. You have a new follower now. Hopefully I can get my next bundle of sketches loaded tonight!
I have been slacking SOOO bad since I last posted this. I have like 8914876185 drafts, but never finished any of them. I must get back into this!
I am still trying to get a new post out. Now that I am off the trip I want to do shorter post, but like always I am getting pretty wordy. Went to Shenandoah National park last weekend and I’ve already decided to make it two post instead of one. Only two post in July and in slow in August, I would like to have 4 post a month.
Those sound like really realistic goals!! I think I need to start back up slowly again. I have a lot to say, but for some reason, I just can’t get it down on a post lately. Best of luck! I will be be stalking your blog for updates!!
So have you finished the draft yet? I am still working on mine. Way behind schedule now.
Fiiinnally posted one. Although it feels like cheating since it’s just a minor update. Gotta start somewhere!!
Well, after much deliberation, I finally have added a new post. I think I will really be doing two a month, and as always I am very wordy. Trying to work on that.
