Blogging 201. Assignment #1. Setting goals.
By Emma Palova
EW Emma’s Writings
Now that I have already accomplished the first goal of having a company site for Emma Blogs LLC, I can actually spell them out.
At the beginning of 2015 I wrote my goals on a white story board under the title, “Goals 2015.”
First I listed my fiction goals to complete the memoir “Greenwich Meridian” in 2015 for 2016 publication. Second, I posted on the white story board: Write short story for Writer’s Digest contest in May.
Then followed: market fiction, publish fiction and sell screenplay.
Well, one month into the new year I have barely touched any of these, except for some marketing and putting together the short story in my head, before I set out to write it. So, what have I been doing I ask myself?
“Blogging, my friends,” I answer.
So, I flip the page of the white story board to Blogging Goals and go deeper yet into my writing/blogging diary because the goals on the board are more long-term.
And there it is, pure and clean in the diary:
1) Have a company blog/website for Emma Blogs LLC. Well, I can mark this one off. Once I read Michelle’s post on goal setting I just started working on the site. Got it done in three hours, drifting back and forth between themes Radcliffe and Twenty Fifteen. It tells the company story and introduces the staff.
2)Get an E-Newsletter out for February along with creating a mailing list. I started mind work for this in the wee morning hours when I cannot sleep.
3) Hook up with affiliates. I already started with Learn to blog and I need to post their logos. I also want to hook up with PR Web and Wild Technologies.
Goal setting does work. I am a living proof of it. I falter when I don’t set goals.
Thanks Michelle for pushing me forward.
