I was so hyped about this that I was still awake at 3am this morning, even after slipping into bed just after midnight. Not even reading my Kindle for over an hour could calm me down. I had ideas racing through my mind and was trying to think of strategies to make it all work. It’s got to work. It will be like a dream come true. Seriously.
An idea that I had was to add two new features to my blog. A “Follow Friday”, where I put the spotlight on somebody, and a “Sunday’s Secret”. How the latter will work, I am not entirely sure, but I am sure ideas will come to me as the weeks progress. In between, I will write about me, and personal events as usual.
The first thing that I became aware of is that I am going to have to be dedicated to this project like never before. No more slacking off and leaving this blog for days and weeks at a time. If I want this to be a success and reach the right people, then I have put everything I have into it. I am just a little chick in a wheelchair with a dream. I do not exist on anybody’s radar, so I have a lot to prove. I have been told that I have a talent for writing, but without even a diploma in journalism, this is going to be a challenge.
I have always been a hands on person, so who needs a diploma anyway?
But still, the challenge that lies ahead scares me. I alternate between thinking I am crazy and believing that I can do this. I know that I can’t just start nagging people on Twitter to notice me. That will hopefully come with time, and people reading my blog. I have to start somewhere, and already have one or two names in mind of people I would like to approach. Then, I have sent a couple friendship requests to others on Facebook.
In the meanwhile, my blogroll has been weeded of all dormant links. I have already started punting my blog on Facebook and Twitter. So far, I’ve had over 100 hits today without even having posted a new article. That’s more than I have had in the past two weeks combined. Tomorrow, will see the first “Sunday’s Secret” surprise. Nothing major, but guaranteed to put a smile on your face… See you then!
