When I first started blogging, almost a year ago now, I committed to writing once a week on Mondays. The commitment went something like this.
I’m trying to train myself to post regularly. Blogging is new to me. It’s something I’m doing for myself, but wouldn’t it be cool if someone actually wanted to follow me? Remembering to jot down my thoughts in my idea book is a start, but turning those ideas into a posting routine is another story all together. There’s a couple ways I think I can do it. After all, like writing any blog or newsletter, I want to make it easy for my readers to follow me. To do that, I need to pick a day or two a week – any regular cadence – and stick to it in the hopes that my readers will come back and check out my next post. 🙂 For now, I’m going to try and post on Mondays and yes, today is Saturday! But I’m still learning.
Since then, a lot has changed.
- I’ve tried to stick to posting once a week, but confess it hasn’t always happened and I’m definitely not posting on Mondays.
- In less than a year, I’ve posted 66 blogs on communication.
- I’ve had 1,150 views from all over the world and 503 visitors to my site.
- I’m most thankful for my 19 followers who read and liked my posts. Thank you!
- I turned my blogging into a business helping small business owners grow their business and started a Facebook page. Follow me here.
It’s almost 2023!
I’m looking forward to another year of regular communication for myself, for my followers and on behalf of my customers. I’m also excited about my time leading Talk Circles with the local college to help international students practice their English. It’s something I started in 2022 and it’s definitely been a positive experience. More to come on this.
Communication helps you express yourself, clarify problems and build trust. It’s essential to building good relationships and connecting with others. 2023 is almost here, I’ll leave you with this thought, which I stole from the internet.
You never know when a moment and a few sincere
words can have an impact on a life.
