Today I started the course on WordPress again. I had taken it when I first started blogging, and decided to take it again as a refresher. Wouldn’t you know, they changed the course. Now, instead of using WordPress.com, they are using WordPress.org which, of course, costs money. Yeah, there is a free trial period of 3 months, but I am not going to do a trial only to then switch back, so I am going to do the best I can without switching.
Yes, I had stated that at some point I might want to upgrade to a new version, but I am not ready for that yet. So there, instructor, see me sticking my tongue out at you and being the stubborn student I am.
Anyway, the second lesson involves goals and planning for the blog. I guess I missed that the first time around.. I know I have stated goals for March, but I don’t think I really have a complete idea of what I want my blog to be about, more than just trying to inspire people. I I feel it is important for me to have a focus, or rather a theme to my blogging.
I have had a vague idea of what my theme would be – something like encouraging others to follow their dreams, or become the best they can be. Something like that sounds worthy of my time, but it is vague and I just don’t know what I want. Hmm, maybe this course won’t be exactly what the instructor expects for me, but if it makes me think about what I am doing, that might be just what I need.
What about you, do you have a defined purpose for your blog?
