A Blogging Plan!

31 Jul

A plan, a plan! I have a plan to make my teacher site a blog. To have more than the static welcome and required pages is my plan.

So far, other than maybe a cursory update none of the teachers at our school actually uses their sites. If I challenged the teachers to login, I would venture to say that 90%, or more,  wouldn’t even know their logins, much less where to go to access their page. Therefore, I am challenging myself to start actually using my site. Who knows, maybe it will be catching and others will follow.

While some content will stay the same, such as they course syllabus and contact information, the front page needs to become dynamic. This is where the plan comes into play. I am going to boldly go from nothing to an average of 2 posts a week! This is an aggressive schedule, but one that will hopefully garner a readership (even if it is an assigned one).

    This is very intrepid of you. ‘It sounds like a plan’! 😉 I hope all will go according to plan.

    I am a much more haphazard blogger and can see the advantages of
    have a schedule like this.

    Sometimes when I have an idea I just jot down the idea and leave it as a draft on my blog. The advantage then is that I never forget an idea I have for a post. The disadvantage is that currently I have 83 drafts on my blog!

    With every good wish

      It is an ambitious plan, but it may be the only way I will get motivated 🙂

      I like your strategy about saving ideas as drafts. I know I think of something, then it is gone. If I followed your method it would help a lot. As for the 83 drafts, well that just shows how much you are thinking!

    Thanks for your reply.

    Motivation is key 😉
    Many of my draft pages are just a topic heading and no more.
    But it guards against writer’s block.

    With every good wish.
