But I wanted a way to be even more proactive with my goals, so I’m using this blog to hold myself accountable. And because it’s closer to the 15th than the 1st, I’m going to use this post as check-in.
Ready? Here we go.
• Publish Blog Events [DONE]
• Blog Smarter ebook [Ongoing]
I printed off Blog Smarter and am working my way through it with a red pen. My ultimate goal is to expand it. It’s too short as is.
• Write two blog posts about writing and publishing [Ongoing]
I wrote First Draft Sucks for The Path of Least Revision. It was fun and seemed to be well-received. I have no idea what post #2 will be.
• Deal with my webcam [Ongoing]
Google+ recognizes my webcam because it lets me use the microphone, but it doesn’t let me use video. I’m wondering if it’s trying to tell me something about my appearance. (I really don’t think it’s that awful, Google. But whatever.)
• One day per weekend of NO business [Ongoing]
The first weekend of doing this was AWESOME. I have every attempt of continuing it, but I also have doubts about my ability to stay away. So we’ll see.
• Go for a walk, for a bike ride, or other non-working adventure three times/week [Ongoing]
First full week in August and I might fail at this. Two out of three days isn’t bad. Right?
• Survive Bout of Books
Bout of Books won’t start until the 19th, but I have good feelings about this one. It doesn’t seem to be as big as our 500 person one in May. And I’m just trying to be more relaxed about it in general.
