Another month, another blogging challenge. Details here!
But on to Day One.
Consider what you want to accomplish with your blog. Write down three concrete goals you want to achieve.
Nice. I tend to be a bit vague about things like this. When I worked for a particular company, we had annual objectives that we were to be assessed on at the end of every year, and every autumn there would be this great big
wankfest hoo-ha and we’d all go off into groups and jerk each other off discuss things and all that ji jazz. The main thing that we had to remember was to make them (and I can’t believe that I’m saying this) SMART. That is:
S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Realistic
T – Timebound
wank company speak to let us know that what the more detailed we made those objectives the better, and … well, they’re pretty self-explanatory.
So with that in mind, here are my three goals that I’d like to achieve.
- Its blatantly stealing from the Day One task notes, but I would like to introduce a specific weekly posting feature by the end of the month. I don’t know what that would be – whether it relates to my garden, my family history, my photography, or my writing posts – but I can decide on that later.
- Be more active in reading/following/commenting on other people’s blogs and establish a network of blogs/bloggers by the end of June.
- Create/establish a proper blog-related presence on Twitter. Although I do have a personal Twitter account, I rarely use it, and I think that getting out there would be great exposure for me and my blog.
I could include the creation of an editorial calendar as I tend to just blurt things out whenever I get a chance and/or think of them!
