The first day of a new year.
I posted my first blog entry on January 3rd last year. When I first decided to start a blog it was intended to be an off-shoot of my Facebook page that focuses on finding the positive side of life. Conversations Around the Tree, was going to be a place for me to comment on current events, political insanity and reasons why life really is a worthy thing to stick around for.
Instead, I tried a few photo challenges, writing challenges and suddenly my blog became a place for me to express my creative side. A place to learn from others and a place to meet really smart and creative people.
So here I am…ready for a new year. I’ve given some thought to what direction my blog will take in 2015.
First, I need to spruce it up a bit and organize it into categories.
Second, I have not remained as focused on the blog as I had hoped to. However, the fact that I made it through the first year without allowing it to fall away is an accomplishment and I’m going to build from there.
Third, I need to actively engage with other bloggers. I know if I want to extend my reach, I need to reach out to others. I also want to learn from others and to do that I must make contact with those willing to help me learn.
Fourth, I am going to start a daily photo post. Hopefully each photo will in some way relate to what has happened in my day. However, I realize there are really boring days that occur…so on those days I will simply wing it!!
Fifth and final, I plan to post more creative writing. This is something I’ve dreamed of doing…what better place than here!
To those of you that have followed my blog this year “Thank you!”
I look forward to sharing another year with you all out here in the blogging world.
