After completing Blogging 101, i could not resist registering myself to the second part. It is already fun from day one. I will link all my assignments to this page.
Assignment 01: Set Three Goals
The idea is to write down three concrete goals i want to achieve. To be more specific, short term goals.
- I want to complete my novel “That’s How I Tell My Story” on short pebbles with 50 episodes by December 2015. (Published online – linked)
- Follow 100 more blogs by end April 2015 and read / comment on at-least 100 posts.
- Write 10 good poems of different kinds by April 2015
Assignment 02: Audit Your Brand
The tasks is to assess the blog, top to bottom to figure out what’s inconsistent or unhelpful — and start to fix it. This seems to be a continuous process. Am on board all time!
Assignment 03: Get Reads all Over
The tasks is to verify if the site is mobile-friendly and familiarizing with the features of responsive design. I always use my laptop to post and most of the times my mobile to read and verify them. I sure do check for mobile friendliness. Have explored all the features of my theme ‘motif’ and even the responsiveness.
Assignment 04: Creating Editorial calendar
I went through my blog statistics and apparently, my novel and its episodes has highest number of hits. I decided to write a short story. However to reach more visitors i decided to tag it with some other challenge.
I did work on short story from indiSpire short story challenge. Here is what my work has produced: The Unfriendly Time
Assignment 05: Making Most of Archives
I have widgets for top stories and recent posts. I have also tagged my personal favorites posts in About page. However i would like to tag one of my personal favorite post here.
Here it goes: Midst Every not a Thing
Assignment 06: Dig Deep into Social Network
I have connected my blog to Twitter and LinkedIn. Facebook, am not very sure of connecting to Facebook yet. And i really dont have plans for how i will use them for next 30 days. Following related handles on twitter is the so far plan!
Assignment 07: Making the Most of Events
With my schedule currently it is a little difficult to host an event. However to do one for short time is definitely in TO-DO list. I decided to participate in one instead. Here is my submission for Monday’s Finish the Story Challenge: The Depth of Fools Lake.
Assignment 08: Making Blog a Hub
The task is to create a page or section on blog to display links to online presence elsewhere, and making sure that other presences reflect the brand being developed on he blog.
This is a real food for thought. I had never explored this dimension prior. I hope am going to explore this with time.
Assignment 09: The Buddy System
Yayy! I have convinced my friend to start a blog and she will start soon. We are planning for few posts together and a new blog. Am excited!
Assignment 10: Adding a Poll / Survey
I added a Contact me / Feedback / Poll to my Blog. HERE it is! Have also added a Poll to my online novel.
This completes the BLOGGING 201 Course. Thanks a lot to the Team. 🙂 .
