I have always kept a journal as far back as I can remember. I had several notebooks with my thoughts spanning over several years. I would sometimes read what I had written a few years before and laugh at how ridiculous my ideas now seemed. Sometimes, I would be amazed that I had achieved some of the things I had yearned for but had looked impossible. Unfortunately, I lost my journals because of frequent relocation to different countries. Thankfully, now there are blogs and I can note my thoughts on this blog and be able to read them wherever I am.
I am taking a ‘course’ called Blogging 201 starting today. The first assignment is to write three goals and also write a post for bonus points. My goals are:
1) Publish at least two posts each week up to February 1
2) Read and comment on other 201-ers’ blogs for one hour per week at least up to February 1
3) Have at least 10 followers (hopefully more) by December 31 2014
Apart from the requisite three goals, my other one is to have clear themes for my blog. Currently, I just write whatever I want but I think this may not garner a following.
I look forward to learning a lot through the Blogging 201 course.
