2012 Goals

Well it’s just about the middle of January and I figured I should make my goals for myself and this blog public, so you all can help hold me accountable.

My goals in no particular order:

The Blog.

Subscribers. 

The last time I published a post WordPress informed me I have 54 WordPress subscribers and 164 Twitter followers.  My goal for 2012 is to double my WordPress subscribers.

Posting.

My plan is to continue to post every, single day.  If I make it, that will be two full years of daily blogging.

Product Review.

I would like to be able to do a product review on this blog.  Preferably a product I like, so I can write a glowing review.

Twitter.

Tweeting.

My Twitter goal is to learn to tweet.  Seriously.

Twitter Followers.

My other Twitter goal is to get Bob Harper to follow me.   I know, it will be tough but I think I’m up for the challenge.

Writing.

Paid Writing.

I’m not going to say I want to get a full-time writing job, but I would like to get paid to write something.  Anything.  I don’t care if someone pays me to write a freakin’ ad on Craig’s list.  I just want to be able to say I made money by writing.

My Book.

I’m writing a book.  There I said it!  Now you know.  Taking a page from Donna and the Dogs, I will be posting a line at the end of each blog letting you know how many words I currently have.

My goal is to write a little bit for my book each day.  In three days I have slightly over 1.000 words, I need to pick up the pace on that, because I hope to have the book complete (in rough form of course) by the time this blog is two years old.

Sampson and Delilah.

My goal for Sampson and Delilah never changes.  It is to give them the best life I can and enjoy the time I have with them.

So there you have it, and now that you have read my goals, knowing I have shared them is what will hold me accountable and help me accomplish them.

How about you, have you set any goals for yourself, your dogs, your blog or anything else?

 

Day Eighty – What do you think?

I gave myself a challenge beginning in December and that was to write in my blog everyday (hence the Day…at the beginning of each post.) My dilemma now becomes what to write about.  Since going to the Pet Writing Conference last weekend I decided that I would like to focus on writing about dogs;  and since I really love writing about my own it seems the logical choice.   I wonder though if writing about them every day is too much. 

There is a blog on Animal Planet called  Daily Treat that has been funny every time I checked it out.  The thing is though, that I don’t know if I have the material to write about the two dogs everyday and make the blog worth reading.  

So I want to throw this out to you; I am not excusing myself from my challenge, I still intend on writing everyday, I was just wondering what you thought about me taking this blog and making it a weekly or bi-weekly blog; on the off days I will use my Auntie Jodi’s Thoughts to keep myself in writing frame.

My goal here is to produce a great blog with great content and not bore you to tears.

What say you?
