Well I have decided, after blogging for about 11 months to review this site.  I admit I have faltered.  My intention was to do at least weekly blogs, it started so well, then I ended up doing monthly blogs, life just got in the way.  I am now back to doing weekly blogs and I am going to try my utmost to maintain this.  The scheduler is helping me to do this and is  forcing me to plan ahead too.

When I first decided to create a website and blog, I purchased a ‘blog planner’, I lost interest in it fairly quickly though.  However, in my quest to use up what I already have, I have now started to use it to plan my blog posts.  I will also use it to review my blog and make some goals.

I have recently reviewed my theme as I didn’t really like the look of the previous one, so have gone from twenty sixteen to IPPO theme, note sure how its going to work but I am going to try to review at least every 6 months.

Things I planned but failed to do:

  • Failed to do weekly blogs
  • Failed to improve and develop site
  • Failed to do WordPress Tutorials
  • Failed to research blog development


Because I just lost momentum for a while, I didn’t prioritise and let other things get in the way.  I have so much going on at the moment.

What am I going to do differently?  

  • I am going to fully use my blog planner, schedule blog posts in, spend at least 4 hours a week on my blog
  • Write a development plan for my blog and schedule reviews
  • Do a light touch monthly review on where I am up to with developing my blog
  • Research how to develop my blog
  • Populate website with more content
  • Improve content
  • Do some WordPress tutorials
  • Do full review of blog every 6 months and one annual review

What has gone well?

  • I’m still here, blogging!
  • I am enjoying writing blog posts
  • Some people actually like my posts (thank you guys!)
