This goal was about meeting, greeting and having fun. I think I did a little bit of it, but I’d like to do a lot more. Namely:
Host a giveaway – I’ve actually never done this
Participate in hosting a blog link up – With other bloggers. You want in?
Advertise more – I’ve done a few product reviews, but I definitely want to partner with the right brands and expand my horizons that way.
Help You Out
One thing I need to definitely pay more attention to is making my posts useful for you readers. I know that’s what people look for and doing ‘How To’ posts and tutorials are so much fun, so I will be planning on more of those in 2013. I want to make things fun and interesting, count me in on that.
Lastly, Identify Success
This was kind of a reflective goal. A way for me to think about my motivations for blogging and realize how I can get better at it. Blogging is my outlet from my professional job and my graduate studies and I think beginning with the end in mind can serve me well.
Do I need to think more about it? Absolutely. Will it help me in 2013? I think so.
My miscellaneous items included getting a professional picture – check; getting business cards – check, check; and switching to Word Press was a question on that item. While I didn’t get that far, I’m definitely planning on it ASAP. Advice is welcome.
