Yes, today is The Writing Journey's one month blogoversary! I'm really very proud of how the blog is shaping up and I think the caliber of people who have been stopping in and saying hello are top notch!
What We're Doing
Right now, we've got the What I've Learned series going pretty strong. There have been three posts (what? You missed the first one?) and I'm going to put up a fourth
this tomorrow evening, I believe. The Technorati Authority rating hit 6 7 today, so that's yay! And we've got 16 RSS subscriptions! I can't tell you how pleased I am! 😀 And I anticipate things getting even better!
What We're Going To Do
I've got more plans for the site, of course! From a content perspective, I'm going to start a new feature in one of the sidebars called "Steps on the Journey." We will feature one writing book each week to help hone our craft as well as learn the business so our incredible, riveting, heart-stopping stories don't collect dust in our bottom drawers! Or under the bed. Or in the third drawer of the dresser, behind the unmentionables! I'm also going to be posting more about markets and contests. One of the things I've always enjoyed is researching different markets, finding new and interesting places to submit stories. So that's in the works. From a techie perspective, I've got a couple more plug-ins I want to get installed on my WP platform. The one I'm especially interested in getting on here is You Comment | I Follow, which removes the nofollow tag from comments, so that they won't be ignored by search engines. I'm inspired to add this by Lenky's Blog, Because Linking Matters. I also want to get the Forms plug-in I have working properly, so I can create a contact page. I haven't had time to really get into figuring it out. So far I've only gotten frustrated with it! But that's okay. It'll work out. So that's it, thus far! Thanks for learning with me. I think it's going to be a great year! VG
