Blogging Branding – Again

Since the streamlining of my websites and general internet usage; I feel like my blog needs to become my main ‘hub’ here. As in, search TragicFangirl on google, you get me. This place – not my dA or twitter. I am thinking that going through the Blogging Branding Course via the WordPress University again. See if retaking the course helps me reach the goals I have in mind.

Step one is.. writing down my goals, setting them down in ‘stone’

  • Gain 20% more followers – I don’t have that many in the grand scheme of things. So, gaining another 20% is only actually 19 people! I don’t think that’s too hard an achievement.
  • Work a reliable publishing schedule – At the moment, I post on an ‘as and when’ basis, so I’d really like to find a method to my posting that works for me and my readers too.
  • Growth by reaching out – Overcome my ‘blocks’ when it comes to commenting on other peoples blogs and posts. Likes are nice to give and receive, but I won’t ‘get anywhere’ unless I speak to others too.

I think the questions posed in the Blogging University Course email are really interesting ones and they make me feel a bit self reflective on what I am doing and where I am heading.

Why do I blog?
My reasons for this has changed since the conception of the blog. At first, I went down a nostalgic journey over the ‘things in my life that have made me smile.’ Now, I’m heading down the path of ‘I would like feedback and followers for my creative ideas’

If my blog exceeded my wildest dreams…?
I’d love to have more comments and feedback on my posts. A little community of followers that voiced their opinions on my hobbies and creative ideas – which are intrinsically linked.

I don’t think that any of this is wildly unobtainable; it’s just going to take a bit of work and effort on my part!

Of course, any thoughts and feedback from my current followers would be greatly appreciated.

    1. It’s just a course that WordPress offer.
      You get emails through on a daily and/or weekly basis and it helps you set up your blog and helps you get noticed, etc.
      It’s been a really fun learning experience~
