Apologies for the long delay! I’m back … with a few modifications. Namely, I am going to strive for discipline this time around…and actually post once or twice a week.
Here is what you can expect from me…
I’ll be commenting on communication & media — noting best practices (and bad endings) in communication, content development, change management and training.
I’ll be writing about my own interests in continuous learning, communication (see above) and keeping a work life balance through yoga practice, through traveling around Chicago and through reading – especially magazines (my love of magazines should become fairly clear!).
In order to find out if blogging can help me achieve balance and help to identify goals, I have to actually, you know, BLOG. I have to act on my plans.
A while back, I crafted a blogging schedule to help me in this adventure. I told myself I should write about specific topics on specific days. This hasn’t happened yet, so I have revised my schedule to something more achievable…
“Best Laid Plans…” schedule
Blog at least once a week about life and the things I love: DIY, yoga, reading, communication best practices and communication issues.
As a communications/marketing professional, I believe in publishing schedules and in the power of brand. (This scheduling and effort always helps me accomplish more at work.)
I need advice from experienced bloggers and experienced people, I think.
Question: Will the workplace tactics of scheduling and branding help me deliver a blog? Can a blog truly help me identify goals and grow? How can I make my blog a place for those things?
