You probably live in a warmer climate than I do. I live in Rexburg, Idaho, a cold miserable place 9 months out of the year. So, I revel in summer, and suck the marrow out of it. The warm days are so short here that I have to hurry, and while I want to have fun, I want to be productive too.
The warmth fills me with innovative energy, and I use it as a time to improve my writing and blogging among other things. All summer, I am sure to have my writer's notebook with me wherever I go because you never know when you might be struck with a brilliant idea, or a mosquito. If you are one who gets out into nature, few spaces are more empowering for writers.
In thinking about the summer, I decided to write down a few solid blogging goals that I want to accomplish, fearing that if they are not on paper, they will not happen. I thought I would share them with you, and you will find some of the ideas fun and stimulating. So, when your not swimming or sun soaking, here are some ideas for what you might achieve:
OK, so maybe you can't do all of this in a summer, but my intent was to provide lots of ideas of how you might take yourself more seriously as an author and improve upon your skills. I want your blog to rock and get thousands of hits a month, and the kinds of projects I've listed here will help you get there.
Good luck my friend, and let me know how your summer goes. I would love to hear any feedback from people who try some or all of these. I am excited for you as a blogger because I know of the joy and pleasure that can be had. I wish you the best, most productive summer ever. Keep in touch.
