At this point, my blogging goal is the finish the long-form story that has turned into a novel that I've been working on for about five months now. I completed NaNoWriMo in 2011, but this is a much more involved project, and has become a bit more fulfilling. I just need to finish it now.
Thanks for sharing that, Sarah! I've been meaning to check in on how everyone is doing with their goals. This thread is a great reminder!
Yes Definitely! I had forgotten about that thread since it was a while ago, but we can use this new one as a way of a follow up or how have your goals been going?
I recently switched over to self hosting, and did a total blog makeover. It's been a great transition I LOVE the freedom of self hosting, but I think my biggest goal is to improve my blog both content and design. I also want to do more cool things to write about :P I just got a new job and well....thats not exciting!
Oh and I want to to Guest Blog more!
I take guest bloggers!!
As far as followers go, I try not to set goals for that. I am happy if I see a couple of people reading a day. My blog , I am hoping turns into one of those things that helps me finish my book. As of now it is not going that way but maybe it could (?) But it serves me as a good collection for when I apply to jobs. So, for me that is what I have always needed it for and so it works. But of course I want to end up like Jenny Lawson ,The Bloggess.
I want to set myself a regular posting schedule and actually stick to it.
I've been shite at both for the past year and a half. =/
Yeah, me too. I used to write every day.
I'm not really sure what happened.
That's my big thing right now. I've got several weeks of consistent MWF posts now, but I'm now at this point where it's like, "OK. I did that. It's hard. I quit."
Thats something I am rubbish at too! I am just back from 2 months of no posting and hoping that this time I am more regular with things to post about =D
Same here. I have decided to carry a small notebook with me everywhere and also I have set a reminder on my calendar for each night to prepare a blog post.
Also, made a motivation board for my blog which I will hope help as well!
