Update on my blogging experience

So remember back in that post when I talked about the things I wanted to do improve on my blog? I think I’ve done a pretty good job so far. I’m required to post once a week, but I try to throw in some other things just for fun every now and then.

I’ve also been making it a habit to add some pizzazz to each post. I’ve even managed to add some relevant videos to some of them. I try to include links to fun and interesting pages, as well as kickbacks to some of my own blog posts to increase my web traffic.

I’m most proud of myself for figuring out how to add a new page of information. Last night, I created a page that links to all of my classmates’ blogs.

My new goal is to ensure that I update at least twice every week, which might be a struggle, given that there are about eight weeks left of school and a lot to be done between now and then. I’m trying not to panic!

Am I doing this right?

I figure if you’re going to do something, you might as well put your whole heart into it, right? Similar to the stance I’m taking with my thesis (That’s another fish to fry, I will blog about it one day.), I am deciding here and now to put a little more thought into this blog.

I’m going to try to include more pictures, links and update the “about me” section. I have gotten a head start by finally figuring out how to add a photo of myself. Most of the things I’d like to do will take some time for me to learn, so please be patient. I’ve done WordPress before, but it was a much more fill-in-the-blank series of actions at a publication that I worked for.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do to make my blog more interactive? Drop me a line and let me know!

Here’s to progress!
