On January 24th, 2021, I had a post about “goals”.  I thought I would update you on my progress.  I have reprinted my original goals below.

One: to increase the number of posts I write.

I currently make about one to two posts per month.  I would like to make 2 to 3 posts for the month of February.  In 90 days, I would like to be averaging 4 to 6 posts per month.  I will do this by blocking out more time to write and research.

Well, I haven’t been doing real well on this goal.  I have increased this some.  I am averaging around 2 to 3 posts per month.  Assessment: progress.

Two:  To increase the number of followers to my blog. 

I currently have about 8 followers.  I am thankful for them all.  In 30 days, I would like to have 15 followers.  In 90 days, I would like to have 50 followers.  I will do this by working on developing more contacts and studying strategies to increase my followers.  

Well, I achieved the 15 followers in thirty days.  But,….I haven’t made it to fifty yet.  I now have 25 followers…halfway there.  And, I appreciate my followers.  I also appreciate my readers.  It amazes me the worldwide reach of this, so thank you.  Assessment: partially achieved.

Three: I would like to improve my marketing strategy (the admin side of things).

I work on this some, but I really don’t have a clue about what I am doing.  I will study ways to utilize Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn to market my blog.  I will develop an email list for my blog.

I haven’t done real well on this.  It seems beyond me in ways.  I did develop an email list.  I am utilizing it. Assessment: in progress.

I am doing some other things, though.  I have found a couple of books on Amazon Kindle.  One of the books is a beginners guide to using WordPress.  The other one is about SEO (Search Engine Optimization).  The little I have read has been interesting.  I have also started a podcast on Anchor to get my work out on other platforms.

One thing I have shifted lately is my writing focus.  I have tried to focus more on shorter posts lately.  This strategy is to help me dig deeper for my longer posts.  We will see how it works out.  I am currently researching for a longer post. Hopefully, I will be posting soon on that. I have a feeling I will need to re-assess my goals in 30 days and create new ones. That is part of the process in life.

Please be sure to comment at the bottom of the post.  I would love to hear from you.  Please be sure to press the like button, too.  You can follow my blog, too!  There should be a button on my page.  I would really appreciate it!
