I signed up to Blogging 201 in November but then NaNoWriMo happened and I barely even looked at it. Luckily there is another one running now! This one is on branding and growth, which should be interesting. The first assignment is to think of some goals for my blog, and writing a post about them might actually motivate me to stick to them!
I aim to complete/stick with these goals by the end of January.
1. Get to 100 followers.
I feel like I could achieve this earlier, but the way my follower count goes up is pretty unpredictable. I will go for ages without any new ones and then I will post something with the right tag that must reach the right people and I will get quite a few in one day! But hopefully doing this Blogging 201 stuff will help me get more engaged with people and perhaps exceed this goal.
2. Write one comment on another blog every day.
While this is more than doable I get shy about commenting on people’s blogs, which is silly because they are there to be commented on and discussed! I hope I manage to stick with this one the most because I reckon it will probably be the most rewarding to complete.
3. Schedule three posts a week.
Before I had a little break for NaNoWriMo I would try and post something three times a week. I quite like that frequency so I will try and stick to it. However, I would love to be more organised about it and work out what I want to post about in advance and schedule posts more, rather than just hitting publish as soon as they are finished.
So, those are my goals! What is everyone else aiming to do with their blogs?
