- If I was going to blog in detail then 3 convicts was too many, in future I need to set realistic goals.
- I realised after the second week that the posts needed to hang together somehow – to make up a single theme – this resulted in me going back over several of posts after publication to tweak them so that they ran smoothly from one article to the next.
- Once I published my first post I also realised that I would also need to advertise its release, this resulted in me dusting off my twitter account @kerbent and spending a few hours watching YouTube videos to work out how to use it. I also announced the post in several Facebook Groups. This has been a somewhat successful strategy as the number of readers did not fall as low as they had been pre-the April 2017 A to Z Challenge. However, more work needs to be done to develop an effective strategy.
- Originally I had planned to only do four posts for the month, however, when I noticed the Geneameme "Five Faves" I decided to do this also. Blogging can be a very lonely activity so as participating in a group activity can be very invigorating.
