Vegas Notes

11:28 am Getting it Done

I thought I might make a few notes here about what I learned in Vegas, or at least how I plan to apply it to this blog.

*One thing I am considering is an email list, but I am not sure quite how that would work, considering the frequency with which I plan to update. I’ll look into Zookoda for that, as I think they offer a daily and weekly option. Also, they are an Izea product, and that makes me feel warm inside. I just have to stop for a moment and ponder the foresight of acquiring an email list provider. Over a year ago.

*Bring cooking and toys and school back into the Mothering Many fold. I had tried to split them out, but that’s not working so well for me, and I think it has made this a less …. sparkly and enthusiastic blog. I like sparkly. I like enthusiastic. When they belong to me, I like them even better. I actually gushed when I heard someone refer to me as “high energy” over the weekend.

*Publish on a schedule, one to three posts a day, 5 days a week.

*Rework the categories on this blog. Gosh, they are so ….. whatever it is that they are that I can’t figure out where to put stuff half the time.

*Readership. This is the one thing on my list that I cannot control. But I can do these other things, and trust that the readership will come. Right now, short stat reports that I have had between 315 and 411 uniques for this week. I’d like to see that up to 350 and 600 by a year from now, which is forever in internet life. But it’s also a traffic increase of 50% and I am pretty sure that won’t happen tomorrow. Unless each of you tell all your readers about me. What say you? <–shameless begging Ok, I think that about covers it. Next up: toys. PS, also to change the template to one that allows paragraph breaks, if I can find another one I love.

    Long time reader, first time poster here – no matter what, I’ve always found your blog “sparkly and enthusiastic” but like the idea of it all together (I’m a “one stop shopper” kind of girl). I have you on my list of “blogs I love”. You make me laugh, you inspire me (oh, and make me feel totally inadequate when my 2 kids exhaust me:)). I don’t really have any readers (sad, I know) but if I get some I promise to send them your way!

    my goal this year…grow traffic…and that means taking the time at least 4-5 days a week to put up a solid post, not just a ‘quickie’ one

    good luck with your goals
