Zero to Hero DAY 26: GO MINING FOR IDEAS, AND START SOME DRAFTS
For this one I have created two drafts containing titles only. One is called “Crafty”, the other is “The hoop as a metaphor.” I wonder how long these two will remain untouched?
DAY 27: REVISIT A TASK AND A POST
For this one, I’m going to endeavor to keep up with the Phoneography Challenge. That’s the challenge I found in response to one of the Zero to Hero days. The first Monday of the month is coming up, and the subject is nature.
DAY 28: BUILD ON YOUR POPULAR CONTENT
My post, “To Knit or not to knit ,” was fairly popular. My plan for building on it is to start a regular crafting feature. That also ties into my “Craft y” draft.
DAY 29: CREATE AN EDITORIAL CALENDAR
This one makes me nervous. Having a calendar would obligate me to post regularly wouldn’t it? I’ll have to mull the idea over for a few weeks. For now, I will mention some of the ideas for features I’ve come up with.
- Crafty stuff
- What I’m loving on Pinterest
- Art Journal Day
- Look what I found! (This will maybe allow me to discontinue my blog with the same name).
- Things I See (This can replace the photo blog that I haven’t been keeping up with).
- Just a List
I’ll flesh these out as I start thinking about the calendar.
DAY 30: THINK BIG PICTURE
Before I can think about extending my “brand,” and promoting my online presence, I have to think about who I really want to be online. I have to narrow my focus because as it stands, I’m trying to do too much. I’m getting overwhelmed. When I get overwhelmed I don’t do anything.
If this blog is really a way for me to document my life then I don’t need to be a brand. I just need to be me.
So for the next 30 days, I’ll be taking some small strides. The first thing I need to tackle is my resistance to getting up early.
Now, I’m going to have some ice cream.
