This week was great! The fact that it was spring break at the schools gave me extra time to write and investigate information in order to meet my goals! I don’t expect every week to work like this, But I am grateful for the positive start to my first ROW80!
My life will be chaos for the next eight months or so, so I am going to set goals that I have some hope of accomplishing.
1. Write at least 1000 words per week on WIPs
YAY! I nearly doubled that 1000 this week! Lotsa gravy!! Maybe hot fudge…. might be a better incentive….
2. Start a Twitter account
Goal met: 4/4/2012
3. Learn how to use Twitter, Facebook and my blog to at reach at least 10 new followers.
Okay, I have acquired new followers on my Twitter and Facebook and probably have more than 10 between the two, but I am actually meant blog followers and so far I have only gained a couple, so still in the works and moving forward on this one. One step in the right direction, I got Kristen Lamb’s book We Are Not Alone, and I am making progress through that.
4. Post at least one blog that is not a ROW80 check-in
5. Learn how to use wordpress so that I can do things like add the ROW80 badge to my sidebar, or locate a blogsite that I understand how to use.
Okay, made some progress here as you might notice by the new theme on my page and the fact that I have the ROW80 badge on my sidebar!!! Thank Pru for directing me to http://www.lairdsapir.com/2012/02/gettin-friendly-with-wordpress/ ! It was a huge help and I will be following the blog for new hints to try.
Hmmm. I am thinking it’s a good thing that I kept my actual writing goals down to a minimum. It looks like I may be spending quite a bit of the next couple of months just trying to reach some level of competency in platform building!!
Okay folks. A little less scared here. I think I can actually manage this list! It might be tough at times, but I really think I can swing it!
