Today’s assignment: create a page or section on your blog to display links to your online presence elsewhere, and make sure your other presences reflect the brand you’re developing on your blog.
As for this assignment, I am not too concerned about traffic and growth since I am simply happy blogging. As I said in my introduction page, I really started blogging to reignite my passion for writing and to get into a writing habit.
Though I have “branded” my presence across different social networks as “Simply Marquessa” and listed them under a widget on my blog, I’ll have to ensure that (1) all roads lead back to http://www.marquessamatthews.com as the assignment suggests and (2) check out what Tumblr is all about.
Oh yeah, I also signed up for a new email address to mimic my blog name – firstname.lastname@example.org
If I wore suspenders, I’d snap them proudly because I’m almost caught up reading a lot of the blogs I follow. Yahhh!
But I have realized that though I love blogging (and am now a little addicted), I need to reposition myself and pull back a little to put some focus on the novel I want to pursue. My new “addiction” has helped me develop a number of posts that I now have in a queue to automatically post during August while I try to dedicate some time to developing a real story outline.
Alrighty then, what’s the next Blogging 201 assignment, eh? 🙂
