I started the WordPress Blogging Branding course. It is really fun, short (only ten days) and FREE! It is designed to help you build your blog and set achievable goals — one day at a time.
I want to do this because I’ve felt stagnant lately. I’ve been so busy getting settled that I’ve been ignoring the fun things in life and personal growth! I’ve always loved my blog and wanted to do more with it, so I’m focusing my energy on that this month! Another reason is because it is NaNoWriMo — or official novel writing month.
I have NO intention of writing a novel this month, but I do want to focus on my writing and am using this month’s focus as an excuse to do so 🙂
This course started by asking “Why do you write your blog?”
I started my first blog veganoutofthevalley.blogspot.com, my senior year of college as part of a branding project. I’ve kept blogging since then because it is something I enjoy, it helps me keep my friends and family updated when I’m away and I love reading my old posts to see what I was doing and feeling at the time.
Based on this question and a few others I was prompted to come up with three specific (and time constrained) goals:
- Publish at least one post per week
- In addition to my one post, create a weekly features — I’m going to focus on …TACO TUESDAY. My favorite day of the week.
- Spend one hour per week engaging with other bloggers on WordPress.
This post is the official assignment of Day One. For the next nine days, I’ll continue this challenge and then roll directly into the next one to fill up the rest of the month!
