For the next 10 days I will be ‘Blogging about blogging’, specifically about branding and growth. When I upgraded my WordPress account, I was directed to The Daily Post’s course on Branding and Growth. It’s a ten day course which will help me make my blog more relevant to my goals.
Day 1 tasks me to set three goals for my blog. This is difficult as I honestly don’t have a direction in mind. Blogging to me isn’t about the numbers but if I want to use my blog as a means to get my poetry read then I guess numbers matter, so yes, increasing followers or views would be good. However, I think more importantly I need to focus on the content of my blog which has become very random lately!
Three blogging goals related to being a writer/author/poet
Goal 1: add new poetry posts once weekly
Goal 2: add a monthly book review feature
Goal 3: redesign website to include sections on poetry, book reviews and running
Two blogging goals related to numbers
Goal 1: achieve 500 followers by year end
Goal 2: increase views per month to 2,000 by year end
Current blog numbers
WordPress Followers: 408
Views per month: 1,200 for August (but was 1,900 in May)
Have a great day, more on ‘Blogging about blogging’ tomorrow!
