This blog post, Self-Reflection of 1st week of blogging is a self-reflection from a template that I’ve been using so that I can review the information that I’ve learned, and to set up the things to concentrate in the near future.
Self-Reflection of 1st week of blogging
1.What did I do well this week?
a. Reflect on what went will in your blogging this week.
I was very reluctant to change from one theme to another. I wanted to get a sense how everything was related. This morning I took the plunge and changed the theme. Therefore, it’s going to take a little while to make a few changes here and there (i.e. to the headers and logo. It’ll be worth because now I have a better structure.
Update: All in all, I went through about 9 or 10 different themes until I finally settled on using the HighEnd theme that’s currently on my website.
b. What new things did you learn and take action on? What came easily to you?
I’ve learned the fundamental difference between a post and a page. I digressed there a little bit. It’s going to take a little while to find that perfect theme. I’m reminded of that song from the movie, The Greatest Showman – “This is me”.
2.What did I struggle with this week?
a. The hardest part was just trying to focus on a specific topic that I would enjoy writing about.
b. I was frustrated that some programs are harder to use than others. I didn’t like that sometimes answers were very hard to find. The hardest part is where are the users? I increased the numbers of my followers from 15 to 25.
3.What do I want to do differently next week?
a. Reflect on how you’d like to approach your blogging differently next week. I’m going to try and expand my social network to include more Facebook Groups (see below) like the one that I created for Pinterest Artwork to share with other bloggers). I hope to see some of my fellow challengers in the group someday. I signed up for an Instagram account, but I don’t know I’m going to use it extensively at this point.
At the time that I wrote this post I hadn’t signed up for the Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Course. By enrolling in this course, you can join their private Facebook Group called Freedom Bloggers. This is one of my favorite Facebook Groups because there’s always a lot of information shared about blogging which helps me at times to build my Frequently Asked Questions post.
“Facebook group is a page meant for users with common interests, where they can share information or their knowledge. Any person can create a group about any topic, cause or event.
If you’re looking to establish a brand and promote your business to a large number of people, a Facebook Page makes the most sense. If you’re a new or small business looking to establish a presence, a group can be of great help, especially if you sell niche products.”
“What are Facebook Groups good for?
Prepare to feel the love. Facebook groups are designed to promote engagement between your members, especially if you post insightful content and creative conversation starters. This is the perfect platform to speak to followers who have an interest in your business, so are much more likely to interact with your posts”
b. What changes in your routine, lifestyle or attitude do you need to make to achieve your blogging goals next week?
