I realized the other day that I have 3 HUGE milestones coming up for my blog.
Milestone 1: 100 posts
Milestone 2: 5,000 hits
Milestone 3: The One year Anniversary!!!
As it stands currently, this is my 91st post, I have 4,843 hits, and eight weeks and 2 days until my one year Blogiversary.
Now, wouldn’t it be freaking fantastic if somehow I managed to hit all three milestones on the same day (October 15th). Not just fantastic, but fabulous. FANTABULOUS!
The first one I have control over, I can spread my posts out over the next two months so that my 100th falls on the right day. The third one is inevitable- the day must come, the anniversary will exist no matter what.
The second one, though, I have no control over. So it’s up to you guys- my readers (can I call you friends? fans? or is that too weird. Yeah, it’s a little weird. We’ll stick with reader friends). I need you to help me get the word out. I need 157 hits by October 15- but I can’t go over that until October 16!
I know, I’m weird. But I’ve never tried to hide that.
So, what do you think? Doable? or Pipe dream?
I say Doable!
To celebrate the one year anniversary, I plan on posting a week of my favorite posts, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to comment below and that will help me start planning. I’m a planner, it’s what I do.
I’m also thinking of starting some sort of weekly story post. I’ve seen it on a lot of other blogs and it seems popular and a good way to find new followers. Would you guys prefer for me to post a current WIP or something new? It would probably encourage me to actually finish a WIP, but if it was something new I could tailor it to a weekly blog post, make the segments short and it wouldn’t have to be novel length when finished. Hmm… I could always post Twenty-Five, that would get me back on the editing warpath. Or would it be horrible of me to steal the idea of other bloggers? Well, I have 2 months to decide, I’m not going to start anything until after the anniversary.
And a little thing that makes me happy: learning that maybe I don’t suck at networking after all. I was absolutely delightful at last night’s greater triangle chapter ISES meeting.
