Goal Setting in a Blog World
I started my blog journey on March 26, 2014 with not a clue as to where I was headed with my blog. I knew I wanted to write and share my journey into my retirement years, even though I was not sure how I wanted to do it. I did not want to be boring for sure!
Nevertheless, I forged ahead learning as I grew in the WordPress Community. I took blogging classes, writing classes, and photography classes. I read the work of other bloggers. I participated in challenges and stretched my creativity to new levels. I began to gain confidence in myself as a writer. I now had a path I knew I wanted to follow. I wanted to write.
I love writing. It seems to free something inside of me. It brings me great joy. I was meant to write and gifts should always be used. If I reach one person with something I have written and it invokes great feeling within them, then I have done my job.
In concert with Dorne, and her blog, Write Dorne, Putting Life Into Words, we have decided that we are going to define our writing goals and ambitions in a weekly blog post. Both of us are interested in getting some of our work published. Between us, we thought that if we make our desires public, we would better support each other in achieving our goals. If you are inclined to join us feel free and ping back to our posts for additional support.
Here are my goals for this week:
I am sure you are gasping for air at this point. What I am trying to do is carve out more time for writing and being creative. I do not think that 4 hours a day writing and blogging is unreasonable. I view it like a part-time job. Just like any job, I find that if I work too hard, my creativity suffers.
This is a start, a jumping off point if you will. Thanks for letting me share my goals for Silver Threading. I hope you will come back and visit again
