Taking my blog to the next level...

Posted by on Tuesday, May 27, 2014

I've been thinking about blogging lately.

Perhaps it was because I was supposed to teach my Basics of Blogging course again, but it got cancelled due to low enrollment.  Teaching has been interesting - but that chapter of my life is done for a bit.  I haven't put my name in to teach for the next little while as I have decided to make travel my priority for a bit - and since I travel when and where the deals are good, I don't want the restriction of teaching to interfere with that.

I've done a lot of "research" into blogging... what works, what doesn't, ways to promote my blog, social media... and I've decided that I want to try and use some of that research to make this blog bigger and better.  Maybe make it something more than my mom reads (that is if she even reads it anymore).

The blog will still be about me... I mean, that's the topic that I know the best.  But maybe you'll get a better insight into my life, my passions, my quirks, things that make me go hmmmm.

I'm going to make a plan to post more regularly.  With topics.  I'm going to update the blog layout (I'm still looking for the perfect one for me.  I'm not a programmer - I need at least the bare bones to tinker the html behind the scenes).  I'm going to come up with some weekly post ideas that I'm going to run with for a bit, and maybe do some (free) promoting if I can come up with some ideas.

We'll see how this experiment works...

    Yes I still read them, when I think of it. Sometimes I have a couple to read at once. Mo
