Blogging 201 has started!

Blogging 201 has started everyone!!

I have to admit that I feel a little bad about starting with it without having finished all the assignment of Blogging 101, especially after being away for over a month. Still, don’t want to miss the opportunity to learn something new here, and… I promise I’ll finish all my remaining assignments as soon as I can.

Today is actually Day 3 of Blogging 201, so I am already two days behind and trying to get caught up. Anyway, the idea of the first assignment was to set three blogging goals. I’ve been writing here mostly for fun and never gave much thought to my goals with this blog, but I can see that, even though I enjoy doing this a lot, I haven’t been very constant… at all, so… goals are good.

For now these are the ones that I have in mind:

• Goal # 1: Write at least three posts every week starting in August.

• Goal # 2: Create an editorial calendar and come up with at least 60 blog post ideas.

• Goal # 3: Create a facebook and Twitter account for the blog by the end of August.

What other goals would you consider to make of blogging an habit and to make your blog grow a lot?

Happy blogging everyone!

    As they always say, a start is a start is a start… Saw your blog, and truly impressive.. Love your Goal Number 2… And what does one say.. All the very best :)… Cheers.. Rajesh

    • Hey Rajesh, thanks for stopping by! I hope I can achieve all my goals. I really would like to write a little more often!

      I see that we are using the same blog theme. Here’s a question: How did you get to create a menu with all your categories under the header? I’ve been wanting to do that and don’t know how. Help? Thanks!

      • asarpota says:

        Hey Monica… Thanks for the stop… On the categories… After you are in WP=Admin… Go to Appearance… Menus… Create a Menu Header and you can drag drop what ever categories you want.. I did not want too many, so limited myself to a few sets only.. There is a way where you can do sub categories, which is creating categories under categories adn then dragging these below… I did that on my other site (www.asarpota.com), but kept it to a select set on this one….. Let me know if this helped

      • Hey, thanks for the help, that’s awesome! I will definitely try it asap! 🙂

    Good luck on Blogging 201! We’re now on day 4 and I haven’t had a chance to do any of it, so you are already ahead of me! 🙂

  3. I signed up to this as well.. hoping to get things done but like you I am a little behind… (LOL) actually is not really that little.

    Hey, Monica! Just wanted to stop in and say hi. Missed you in blogging 201; it was a super group. I encourage you to try the editorial calendar, even if you use it in a smaller way, say for like September, instead of sixty posts, just to see if you like it or not. I was hesitant to try it, but it turns out I LOVE my calendar. It helps me stay focused and spend my time where it’s most useful. And thank you, for following my blog!

    • Hey, how are you! Thanks for the encouragement, I’m having a hard time focusing on writing, but your message just made my day. You know, I came up with the 60 post ideas at the end and I am planning to use it as a sort of challenge. I haven’t created my editorial calendar yet, but I can imagine it is a huge plus and extremely helpful tool and you are right, I will create one. Also, I am finally creating some social media accounts for the blog, so it has an email, a twitter account and I have to create the FB and the instagram. I am still loving this a lot. How are you doing? I am enjoying your pictures a lot! I especially love your One woman’s crap is another woman’s treasure post. 🙂 Thanks for your message again 🙂

        So glad to hear it made your day, yay! Settling down to write something can be hard. Maybe your 60 post challenge will help to motivate you. (: Sounds like you are slowly chipping away at different parts of a blog—the social media and stuff. Blogging takes a metric shittonne of time, doesn’t it?
        I’m doing pretty well. Super busy, and about to get busier as my next American Sign Language class starts up in a few weeks, and my boyfriend (Matthew) and I are going camping for a week very soon. But it’s all good, all fun.
        So glad you’re enjoying my blog! It makes *my* day when I hear that.
        Take care!
