Well, I guess it is official. I am one of those “serious bloggers”. In fact, I will go to great lengths not to miss a day of blogging. Even though I am lying on the couch, feeling sicker than I’ve felt in years, with shards of glass in my throat (or at least it feels that way), body aches, chills, and a low-grade fever, I still feel compelled to at least write a short post.
It has taken quite awhile to get to this point. I started this blog in 2011 but didn’t post regularly until this past March, when I took Photo 101, followed by Writing 101.
Now I am getting ready to start the 2-week course, Blogging 201, in hopes of learning how to improve my blog. My first assignment is to name three goals. I have a lot of goals and it was hard to narrow it down to 3, so I wrote down my top 4:
- Expand my audience by tapping into and utilizing other social media tools.
- Learn more about the tools that are available to improve the appearance, format, and readability of my blog.
- Become more comfortable writing opinion pieces.
- Get my A Day in the Life Series published.
So, wish me luck and feel free to give me suggestions and feedback.
Now, I am going to close my eyes and go to my happy place. I hope to wake up feeling better.
