Hi guys! Today we’re talking blogging ambitions. There is a wide variety of things I’d like to do within the blogosphere but I’ve narrowed it all down to the six activities I’d like to complete most at the moment. These are all things that many bloggers have done already but since I’ve yet to tackle them, I’ve listed them below. I wasn’t sure about writing this post because I’ll undoubtedly feel like a failure if I never check anything off this list but I really like sharing things with you guys as well as being able to kinda journal my thoughts and wishes on my blog. Anyway, let’s get started!
Post Four Days Per Week
While I’m not at a point right now where this is possible, I’d love to eventually post four times per week with the fourth post occurring on either Saturday or Sunday. If I’m super specific, I’d like those posts to be reserved for a series to be run for one to two months before a new series begins but we’ll see. I have so many ideas but not enough time on my hands to turn those ideas into the high quality posts I think they could be.
Start a Twitter Chat
Speaking of ideas, I have a name, handle, hashtag, schedule and four chat topics already written down just in case I ever muster the courage to start my own blogger retweet and chat account on Twitter. As is the case with posting more frequently, hosting a weekly chat takes time. It’ll be a while before I take on this task if ever as there are already so many amazing chat accounts out there!
Write an eBook
Writing is my favorite part of blogging so being able to author and illustrate my very own eBook is an absolute must for me even though I have no idea or plan for what I’d like to write about. Not an outline. Not a topic. Nada. I just know it’s something I’m extremely passionate about and when the time comes I’ll dream up something I want to share with the world.
Open an Etsy Store
This is a somewhat blog-related activity as my shop – if I ever launch it – will have items for both bloggers and non-bloggers alike. I already have quite a few ideas written down so hopefully I’m not too terribly far off from beginning this little venture. While there’s never a perfect time to start, I just want everything to be as planned out as possible prior to putting up whatever the internet version of a storefront open sign is.
Write More Guest Posts
I’ve just sent off a final guest post draft to one of my favorite humans in the blogging world and I’m already excited beyond words. The thought of contributing my writing to someone else’s work is wonderful and I hope to have the opportunity to do it again very soon. I will keep you posted on the status of my first guest post either here on my blog or via Twitter. Stay tuned!
Create a Newsletter
Last but not least – and actually the activity I’m anticipating most – is creating a monthly newsletter to complement my blog. I have more ideas on this than any other item on this list which may have something to do with the fact that I used to make newspapers for my Barbie dolls when I was little and, back when I was a working mama, I made a mockup newsletter for my job just for fun. On my free time. From my home. What can I say? I just like assembling fun bits of information into perfectly packaged and easily digestible little documents. And I’m a dork.
Those are the six blog-related things I’d love to accomplish in the near future and now it’s your turn! What’s on your blog to-do wish list?
