Setting Goals

As much as I love writing, I don’t do it nearly enough. Work and motherhood always get the upper hand and I chalk my excuses up to that and call it a day. But what good is it, for me, if I let my creativity die for nothing?

Well, I can’t have that! So, instead of finding more excuses to come up with, I decided to join this blogging 201 sort of class to keep my scatter brained butt on track.

I’m setting goals people! I’m setting goals for myself, and more specifically so, for where I want my blogging to take me.

I’ve always thought of my blog as a series of adventures that I’ve gone on and shared with the world. It’s never the same story twice and there’s always a different feel to it. I feel like I collect my memories on a shelf there and I place them inside glass balls for everyone else to see; whether it be bad or good. There was never a specific reason as to why I created my blog other than the simple fact that I love to write and I’ve always seen myself as an open book. I’ve always felt that I wanted to share a piece of myself with the world. Pieces that could only be seen and heard through words. So, in order to keep that dream alive and kicking I’m going to have to make some things happen:

1. Blog/write, at minimum, twice a week to create a steady habit for myself and to keep my creative juices flowing and nurtured.

2. Actually gain about 100 consistent readers and receive actual feedback from “regulars” I want to acquire regulars.

3. Interacting. I’ve got to get better at it. I’m going to interact with 5 people/bloggers minimum during the week.

Trying to keep up with this isn’t gonna be a slice of Apple pie or anything, but it’s certainly well worth it! I’m gonna make this happen. Let’s DO THIS!
