Typically, I try to bring you guys the latest in health, wellness, and “miscellaneous” fun – but this week I am also participating in a project called Blogging 201. B201 is an online course in blog productivity – helping bloggers focus, improve, and maximize their blog efforts through a series of lessons and exercises – so of course, I wanted in!
Each day, I’ll be posting a B201 “activity” in addition to my regular posts – so if you’re a blogger yourself, or if you simply want to know more about where ThisFitBlonde is heading, read on!
B201 – Day 1 – Set Three Goals
Consider what you want to accomplish with your blog. Write down three concrete goals you want to achieve.
- Publish FIVE times per week consistently through the end of 2014
- Spend ONE full hour each week reading followers’ blogs, commenting, and building blog community with my peers
- Invite THREE guest bloggers to add posts before the end of 2014 – one in October, November, and December
As you guys can probably gather, I’m a relatively new blogger – I recently hit the “50 Post” level, which makes me feel more established, but I am a newbie when it comes to the fitness blog community. I want to be “known” among peers and used as a source of professional advice as well as a sounding board for concerns from my readers and peers – a support group of sorts.
Here’s to a much more productive final three months of 2014 – I’m ready for the challenge!
