Writing has become a special part of my day. I know I have a lot of room to grow with my writing, delivery, presentation, flow, organization…you get the idea. What I look forward to, is looking back and seeing how my writing has progressed. Like anything, the more you do it, the better you get.
I have never been one to journal. I keep my thoughts in my head. But, as I get older, there is just so much up there, I need a release. And, COVID-19 jump started this journey. I’ve actually had this blog site for over a year. I just didn’t know where to start. What do I want to write about? Trail running…YES! My journey with Christ….YES! My personal experiences and growth….YES! But, where I start was the biggest hurdle. Until one day I wrote a piece and posted. I want this to be more than an online diary. I want to engage with readers.
I don’t know much about the blogging world, so I started searching around my WordPress features and noticed a course they offer on Branding an Growth. I signed up, because reading the topics I knew I would learn how to engage with readers.
Which leads me to day one.
Set three goals for your blog. I am choosing to share them with you because I want you to see what my goals are.
Off the Beaten Path! Off the Beaten Path will be a post about our mental and virtuous strength. We endure more than we can ever imagine; and many times we hold it in because we have to remain strong on the outside. Off the Beaten Path allows us time to reflect and process our experiences.
Since my goal is having people engage in my blog, it is only natural I engage in my followers’ blogs! I am excited to support my followers and be inspired by them.
I have quiet time every morning to spend writing, while on Covid-19 quarantine. Having this goal came at the right time. It will keep me on track when I go back to work – which will be soon, I’m sure!
I look forward to the next few months, and beyond. I hope to hear from you, especially if you want to be featured in Tribute Tuesday.
All my best!
