Assignment #1-Blogging 201

How?  How is it even possible that I’m already a day behind in the assignments? I thought for sure the course started today.  How will I get through the course if I can’t keep crap straight?  Like I did everything else!  We wing it!  OK!!!  Jumping in now!

Today’s (what I thought was today’s assignment) is: consider what you want to accomplish with your blog. Write down three concrete goals you want to achieve. 

Goal #1 should be to get my shit straight.  But it’s not.  I can’t possibly be THAT responsible. Pressing on….

 

Goal #1:  I really need to find my blogs focus.  It started as crafts, recipes, and kids.  It’s kind of drifted to just recipes, and silly antics of my life, simply because that seems to get the most views.  The problem with this is, there are a gazillion food and life blogs.  I need to find something that makes me stand out.

Goal #2: And I’ve blogged about this already a few times, I have to blog more consistently. Most days after all the chaos of dinner, homework, cleaning up etc, I don’t want to do anything! If I set a goal of 3 days a week, that is also hard, as it is really work.  Whether it be research or prep etc.  But I really need to make Goal #2 a priority to achieve Goal #3 happen.

Goal #3: Increase traffic and numbers.  I need to be more social media savvy, beyond Facebook.  I’m ok with Pinterest, but need to work on that along with setting up a Twitter and Instagram account.

3a. I want people to LIKE my blog and for people to check back in on their own, not just because it pops up on their news feed.

 

Goal #4.  To have more time in the day to accomplish Goals #1-#3, and 3a.

    It did start today. I think the assignment is posted very early- or is that late the night before?

    More time in the day? I need some of that!!!

    You aren’t late. It did start today. The difference is they are posting it at midnight GMT time so everyone in the world gets it at the same moment. I live in Seattle so there is a a lot of time difference. I received it at 5 p.m. on the 19th so it feels like I received it on the wrong day.
