Why do I Blog?
I started blogging for one main reason, I was told it is a great way to establish an audience as a writer. I have a great dream of one day being a published (and best-selling/famous) writer. I want to see my books on the shelves in bookshops one day. Until my great novel is written, I decided I should be working on building a readership.
The second reason I blog is because I enjoy contemplating things and bringing up ideas. Through blogging I can do that in detail and get my ideas out there into the world, to perhaps even make a difference.
If my blog exceeded my wildest dreams… what would that look like?
My wildest dreams are to be included in lists like: Best bloggers, or Inspiring women bloggers. I day dream of having thousands of followers and eager fans waiting and cheering me on as I finish my novels, which, due to my fantastic blogging success, are instant best sellers. I dare to dream of being invited to go to writing festivals and writing conferences. Exciting writers and bloggers would be guest posting regularly.
I would have a logo, and cool tag line. I would have thousands of followers. I would have large spikes in traffic when a post is made. I would a have a readers discussing the ideas I post about in the comments section, without necessarily my input. All discussion would be positive and supportive. I would be posting a couple times a week.
By the end of this year, I will…
- Post at least 3 times a week, each week.
- Posting days could be… Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
- Writing post, Review Post and a Daunting Concepts
- Once a week posting one favourite post by a blogger I follow
- Have Facebook linked and set up posting my blog posts
- the day after each is posted
- a repost of a popular old post weekly
- post favourite posts
- Finish off Brand
