I’ve had two consecutive months where I’m spectacularly failed to accomplish the goals that I’ve been setting for myself. Which, as you might understand, has made me a bit wary of what I set myself for October.
I’m going to start off with an assumption but I think it’s a reasonable one. If you’re a writer, then you most likely have a web page or blog of some kind. The question is; what are you posting on it?
I got a nice little surprise the other morning. The very generous Raimey Gallant nominated me for a Liebster Award. I guess this means I’m doing something halfway decent with this page.
As with many people, even so often something crops up in my Facebook notifications that makes me annoyed. I had such an occasion this past weekend.
Ever since I read Caroliena Cabeda’s post for the #AuthorToolboxBlogHop last month, it’s been in the back of my mind to get a more structured schedule in place. I keep thinking something like that would help me remember to do the little things (more on those below) that I know I should be making time for but get pushed aside in favour of more immediate concerns.
Well, who would have thought it?
When I decided to give blogging another try 18 months ago, I don’t know that I expected to make it this far.
I was thinking, after some of my recent setbacks, that I should remind myself why I’m doing what I’m doing and what I want to accomplish with it.
In my goals for February, I said I wanted to make a decision about whether or not I was going to do interviews. And, for better or worse, I think I’ve made one.
I said something last week in a random Twitter post the I should start planning my blog posts ahead of time. I’m now thinking that I spoke truer than I’d intended.
So I spent some time this weekend working on my blog page…
