Hello all! This is my second Round of Words and I am so super happy to be here!
So far, I have one short-term goal and three long-term goals. First, the short one:
Find a theme I actually like. Let’s be honest for a second. I love WordPress! The app is spectacular, the interface is helpful and informative, the Reader keeps me engaged with other blogs… but I have not been too terribly impressed by the free blog template layouts. Translation: I really don’t like how my blog looks. That’s awkward. So, I plan to spend an evening combing through templates to see what I like. Most importantly for me, it has to be fully mobile-compatible, while still visually appealing. If I can’t read my own blog from my phone, no one else will either. So there’s that.
My three long-term goals are:
Continue my Creation365 Challenge. I’ve started writing mini-stories based on photographs from the book “Earth from Above: 365 Days.” Somehow I’m already a day off… meh. Details. It will make me an infinitely better writer if I’m consciously writing every single day.
Post one tutorial per week. Right now I’m on a paracord kick, but I’m not too picky. I might do crochet tutorials, painting techniques, doodle tips, whatever. But I’d like to do one tutorial a week. More if I’m feeling ambitious.
Design/Develop a No Phone Challenge (name pending). One of my pet peeves as of late is how cell phones are making us antisocial in real life, damaging relationships, making us generally boring people with our noses to the ground. Not cool, kids. We’ve got to work on that, and I’d like to take a head-start at it. Maybe you’ll join me?
There are other things I’d like to do too, but I know once this month gets rolling, my life will become quite busy, and I don’t want to get burnout on my blog. So, that’s me! Thanks for stopping by! For more information about ROW80, visit https://aroundofwordsin80days.wordpress.com/blog/
