I've been really working on starting a foundation for this blog that I'm hoping will last into the future. Towards that, I've:
-Set up a monthly calendar for my blog posting schedule.
-Did every planned post, and am about a week ahead on posts give or take a few days depending on my publishing rate.
-Regularly working through the three programs I've got going on. My blog views have gone from about 0-50 daily to now 50-100 daily. Subscribed readers will come, but the focus is exposure right now.
-Spent some time planning out the next few months and some goals for the upcoming year, which I'm very excited about.
-Doing my own photography for the vast majority of any pictures, and looking into ways to really improve said photography.
-Kept the 3 posts/wk. minimum goal.
-Recognized how much regular work it takes to build a blog platform.
-My method for writing posts is to just get everything out all at once one day, and then wait a couple days and edit to fine tune everything.
The other goals I completed:
-5000 words towards my novel.
-Only one sewing project, but that's because I wanted this month to really focus on laying the foundation more than anything else. Now that the system is starting to get into place there's going to be a lot more sewing happnening here.
Still working on:
-My blogging voice.
-Developing my brand, and trying to figure out details with promoting that.
-Making my schedule better by becoming a morning person so that things aren't last minute and done late, but instead done first thing.
-I really need to get my office in shape so that it can become a hub.
-Developing social media and figuring out how it's going to be used to promote my blog.
