Hello Wonderful Listeners!
It is the second day of Blogging201 and I must say, today’s assignment is an in-depth one. It certainly is not one to be done in a day but that won’t stop me from commenting my opinions.
Today assignment was to “audit” my brand; i.e. make it my own and make sure it conveys my overall intent (and/or some minor intents.) Welp, at first glance I assumed that I might have already done this back in Blogging101. However, my goals have changed and that requires readdressing my brand and how to “audit” it.
First, I wanna address the overall intent. I do believe my current blog appearance and hierarchy supports this intent. At then end of it all, this is a personal haven and diary for me whether that means I come to vent, or be weird or what-have-you. As it stands now, this blog is supporting that. Many of my technical set-ups (sidebars, menus, widgets, etc.) all reinforce my theme of “this spot is for me to be free;” they also happen to reinforce my pineapple overtone as well.
Now on the minor level, it is possible that my blog is not standing up to these goals I announced yesterday. One of my goals was to evoke more viewers to comment and interact with me, the creator, as well as their peers in the comment section. However, these comments are, to be honest, few and far between. (Now of course, there are those who stand loyal beside me and comment frequently enough that they contradict this. However, the majority of my followers [I’m referring to those who actually read my posts] do not comment after reading; a simple “like” is the only evidence of interaction, which, although appreciated, is not my goal.) I would like to change that, and I’m sure I’ll conceive a plan soon.
As for the other goals, they are more personal but perhaps when my artwork gets posted, I may flash it around here and there. It could possibly help the atmosphere a bit.
These are my current thoughts on the situation prior to taking action. If you have any suggestions as to how I may reinforce these goals or ideas, please leave a comment below! I think I have gone and completed (or at least started) today’s assignment. As they say, it all adds up over time. That will do it for now then.
Until next time, as always, cheers.
