This year, I am working from a list of goals encompassing the entire year. Before I declare my Round 4 goals this Sunday, I’m taking this opportunity to share and evaluate my progress toward my larger 2014 goals.
Focus on layout and design aspects of my Blogging Action Plan. Not so much….
I’ve been adapting my blogging habits and content organically, and will be moving to a website sometime in 2015.
Add all useful bits, templates, links, etc, for each feature to Master Resource File. Target attained!
I’ve since created templates for all of my regular features.
Build positive blogging habits – post regularly, build queues, answer comments, and share diversely. On target.
Steady progress with regular blogging, developing features, and answering comments.
I’ve got ideas about queue building and diversification of sharing; but I’ve been more focused on creating content and interaction.
Maintain regular posting schedule; queue one post for each regular feature. On target.
Regular posting; not for queuing.
Brainstorm what I want in a website; move The Unfettered Life to a spiffy new home. On target.
