Okay – blog progress time.
My first goal was simple in theory but requires perseverance:
Specific: Post twice per week: one a little short one, one a bit more substantial.
Measurable: Starting in the first week of February, I will be posting twice per week. (Monday and Thursday – unless something significant occurs that changes one of those days).My post ‘Experimenting with the blog 3: Blog Goals‘, 28th January 2021
Well – so far, so good.
- First week in February, two posts.
It will take a month or so to make sure I’m in the right pattern but seems positive.
My second goal was:
Specific: Think of a catchy name for one type of blog by the start of February.My post ‘Experimenting with the blog 3: Blog Goals‘, 28th January 2021
The result is above as the title of the post: Thoughts for Thursday. It started as Thought Thursday but there was something about it I just didn’t like.
I thought this was perfect for my shorter post. It allows me to post things like quotes that resonate with my writing, steps forward/backward in the writing process – any ‘thought’ that seems appropriate for a writing/reading, history and paranormal blog.
The next part of the same goal was how I was going to measure it.
Measurable: A post written (not necessarily published) under the catchy title.My post ‘Experimenting with the blog 3: Blog Goals’, 28th January 2021
And that was completed on 29th January 2021 – but it was a Friday, so I had to schedule.
But I’m very happy with Goal 3:
Specific: Organise a guest poster by end of February.
Measurable: I will have the guest poster named, with a date set, by the end of February.
And I’ve nailed it!
And waiting to hear back from a few more!
Quite pleased with myself actually.
