How on earth am I going to post blog entries regularly?
In order to post regularly, it is very important I set specific goals detailing when I am going to post and what I’ll be posting about.
My goals (so far) for this blog…
**WHEN I will post — I am going to post once or twice a week, usually on a weeknight or on the weekend.
**WHAT I’ll be posting about — I’ll be posting about communication (best practices in workplace communication, content development, change management and training) and about my other main interest … to be continuously learning. (I always learn SOMETHING through yoga, travel, my reading and TV favorites and the occasional cooking/baking adventure.)
You’ll see many of the following tags (and some categories as I progress) …
- media use
- continuous learning
Are you setting specific and SMART goals*? It is something we should all aim for.
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?
Best laid plans, indeed…
