How Far Do You Go?

Does anyone scroll to the bottom of a blog home page? Not really; or so I’ve heard.  So I took a good look at my blog, remembering all the times people visited to read a certain piece, but didn’t venture further.

Shall not passSo what do I do about that?

Creating my space had been one of my favorite parts about starting my blog – learning about all the neat things I could add and customize and then rearranging them to suit my aesthetics was a lot of fun. I actually missed that part of the experience.  I thought I had come up with a design that worked. Considering traffic was stopping where it came in though, I clearly had something wrong.

100 reasons to go for your goal


Yeah! Thank you! Awesome!

Reaching 100 followers by the end of the year was a goal I set during Blogging 201 and I MADE IT 🙂

Accomplishment is a great feeling best to be shared.  Even if you hit 100 eons ago or are waiting for your moment – you all totally get it. I have found, in this community, there is no accomplishment to small or too big – share and be proud 🙂

100 reasons

Putting Planning into Practice

I need to get my focus on.

I’ve learned so many wonderful things from Blogging U and other bloggers and it’s time I actually make that knowledge useful.

So I’m going to use December to ramp up to 2015; get all my ducks in a row; cross my t’s and dot my i’s; and whatever other cliche’s that suggest I’m going to buckle down and get serious.

I Love You Blog

I didn’t know how much I was loving blogging until I couldn’t do it for 3 weeks.  The pain of being ripped away from a habit I had only developed over a month was surprising. ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Ever the optimist, I used what down time I had to work on my stories; kinda the reason I started blogging in the first place – to create a writing habit. I wasn’t online but, really, what can compare to paper and pen other than a higher word count in a shorter amount of time? Ok…higher word count..shorter amount of time….love it, but pen and paper are still sweet.

I’m also disappointed to have missed most of Blogging 101…super sad about that actually. When I decided to restart my blog, to create this writing habit because I want to write for a living – btw I do a mean press release if you need one 😉 – I stumbled upon Blogging 201. Blogging 201 is really brand based so I figured I should have at least some knowledge of the first installment before venturing into the next so I wasn’t completely lost. Crash Course was the only way to go. (Also how I made it through most of College 😛 so I knew I was capable.)

I did that, then took Blogging 201 and met some great people. Then! Blogging 101 was being offered up again! And some of the people I had met were taking it! I really thought I had hit the perfect balance of all that I needed to feel supported in the best ways and to learn how to create something I could really…really….get behind? worthy? other people would like?

Stick with.

I’m still not sure what I’m looking for but I know my connections are not dead. Hopefully Blogging 101 will be offered again so I can really take part but for now I’m just gonna keep moving on with all of the fantastic things I’ve learned so far, with all of the fantastic people I’ve already found.

An only child who got smarter about SHARING

I was very hesitant about sharing my blog once I found out my posts here were going right on my FB page for all to see.

Turns out, I just had to keep learning.  Thank You Blogging 101!  Extend your brand was a fantastic post that I learned a ton from.

Now I don’t have to worry about driving people crazy with posts. Now I won’t go crazy with wondering what people think (yeah, I’m like that. What? I’m working on it ok?)

My blog goes to my fan page and people can choose to go there or not.

Ahhhhhhh….now I feel like I got my comfy chair worked in just right.
