Overview

Well, I'm attempting to take on full-time blogging. I realllly want to be more involved online with writers and I decided the only way to do it, is to comment, blog and get involved in blogfest contests and whatever else I can dive into.

Now, why isn't this easy? Well, anyone who has followed me knows I'm a college kid. I also graduate in May but must complete my 19 hour course load first! Which I will do, :)

Anyway. To get organized aside from my school planner:

I now have this:


This is my blog schedule. I actually set it up for March, and wrote everything I have to do for the rest of February in the margins. I'm so excited!

One my list of things to do are part of the Campaign over at Rachael's Blog.

K.T. Hanna over at The Scribble Muse has begun this awesome campaign to get people motivated to finish their goals. If you'd like to sign up, head over there and check this out!

My goals are as follows, but unofficial (only meaning, I may add to this).

  • Come up with something cool for my "Blog Anniversary"!
  • Edit my short story for Cove and Sara
  • At least finish editing half of Flintlock (this will be about 200-250 pages)
  • Finish all school work and related Graduation/Graduate things 
  • Visit more blogs and plan more posts 

Yep. I made these super quick after an exam on Tuesday.These are all things I've been intending to get around to do, and have kind of accomplished some, but if I have this goal in mind and a support group, nothing's going to stop me!

I am also going to participate in the A-Z Challenge!!



My attempt at a theme are my characters/places. I might have to kinda tweak that a little considering I don't want to give a ton away!

Then there is the "Got Green?" Blog Hop!


You can stop by Mark Koopmans blog to learn more about it!

I hope this gives everyone some more awesome things to participate in! As for me, I'm off to study. Yay exams. :/

  4. Ah yes. College. Remember it well. It was only less than two years ago for me :)

    So excited to see you around more!! You're gonna love it. :) Just make sure you don't bite off more than you can chew. I recommend blogging every other day or so. I actually don't have a schedule and blog when I have something to blog about. (Which usually tends to be about every other day).

    You didn't really ask for advice...haha. So feel free to ignore my ramblings ;)

      I tried to do this 'post on mwf thing...and that just didn't work, lol.

    1. Thank you! I was super excited about it! My problem is, I hate white space...and I always feel the need to cover it all up!
