Since we are well into March, it seems like a good time to check in on how my some of goals for 2016 are shaping up. Specifically my goals concerning this blog.
I want to be sure to post pretty regularly. Not every day, but 3-4 times a week at least. For the first few months, I think I've done pretty well on this front with only a few major gaps. But I can always be better about consistency. In the beginning of the year, I've been a bit loose about which days I post, going forward I'd like top achieve set days.
Continue regular series, create more
I feel like I've touched on most of my favorite regular series (Something New, New Block, Art and Nature, Zoo at Home..., On My Mind..., Book Review). I haven't come up with too many new series... Yet.
Tag and categorize
At the beginning of the year, I tried to go thruogh and add tags & categories to all my posts. For some reason I have a hard time doing this at the time of writing the posts. I'd like to get better at this.
I had my first giveaway last year, and my second in February. I enjoy these, but I need practice. The turnout was not as big as I would like.... One thing I haven't done are any trades. I'd really like to pursue this.
Although I really want to get better at posting consistently, I also know I'll need a break. Traditionally July and August have been the months when my posting falls off. I think this year will be a good time to experiment with a controlled break. I plan on taking August off of blogging.
