Blogging Goals

Do a headstand by summer – CHECK! (see feature image)

Next goal? Create a better blog!

I just signed up for the WordPress Branding & Growth course. The day one challenge is to set three actionable goals, so here we go!

  1. Publish twice a month for the next three months (through the end of August).

I started this blog because I feel that (a) I have something to say, (b) I have something to share, and (c) writing helps me work through my thoughts, opinions, and emotions. Posting consistently will help me develop my voice and improve my writing. That headstand took some practice, and so will becoming a better blogger.

2.  Have a well designed blog that I am proud of by July 17th.

I am a designer. It’s not only my day job (I’m an architect), but also an integral part of who I am. Beautiful design makes me happy. My perception of everything that I come in contact with – a website, a store, a t-shirt, anything  – is greatly influenced by its level of design. Good design makes me linger. I want people to linger here. I want to express myself visually, not just through words.

3. Find my community.

For the next three months I commit to:

A. Spending 1 hour per week reading and commenting on the blogs of those who have followed and liked my posts.

B. Spend 1 hour per week finding & exploring new blogs, and commenting on a minimum of 3 blog posts.

I guess that’s kind of cheating. Two goals in one. I’ll let it slide.

So there you have it folks! My three #bloggingbranding goals.

Lets grow together and inspire each other! Let me know if you have (or are) participating in this course!

  1. I’m taking the course as well and found you through it. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in doing this course. 😊 I’m always more into the written word than design so it’ll be nice to follow a design focused blog!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I just checked out your blog and absolutely love it. I love that blogging connects us to people and exposes us to concepts we might never otherwise come across in day to day life 🙂

  2. yes, i’m on the blogging branding course too. maybe day five. i’ve lost track. i have to comment on three blogs today, just like in the blogging fundamentals course. both excellent courses. and, as you say, free. it’s great being at the wordpress blogging university. a steep learning curve. good luck on your journey.

    1. I agree! It is a bit intimidating. I’m trying to not obsess over everything, and instead just enjoy the learning process. That’s why my tagline is “start before you’re ready.” 🙂

  3. Oh-those are such good goals I want to steal them! I’m reading along with you saying “me too!” I will NOT steal them, honest, but you really do have a thumb on a great path to go down. I have been wondering lately about my own blog’s direction -hence I signed up for the class. I HAD an idea for my direction when I started but it’s veered and I think I’m a little to everywhere now and need to reign it in somehow. Well, here’s to us, right? Let’s do this! Thanks for sharing ☺️

    1. Thank you Amanda! My blog is still a bit all over the place too, so I feel you 🙂 But I think that’s okay. I hope that my blog will continue to evolve as my interests change and I grow as a person. Maybe I’ll focus on a certain thing (or things) eventually, but right now I’m really enjoying the process of exploring my varied curiosities! It’s great to connect with people on the same journey!! ❤
