I have been blogging for quite some time now and I have learned quite a few things.
I am skilled in setting up and designing my blog but when it comes to having an editorial schedule and a plan for my blog that is definitely not my strong point. One of my goals for this year has been to achieve this, but I have been kind of struggling with enforcing it.
I have joined WordPress’ Blogging 101 class. It started today and I will be following with the daily tasks and hopefully by the end I will be a blogging pro!
Today’s task: who I am and why I’m here
Who I am – I will start with the basics, my name is Jessica aka Redhotwritinghood or on twitter @red_writinghood. I am a graphic/web designer in Birmingham, Ala., who loves art, books, music, coffee, all things Apple and Adobe and a proud nerd. I started my blog for a web design class in college and fell in love with my blog handle and just kept going. I love the way you can express yourself while blogging, you feel free to say whatever comes to mind. I’m not a ranter really, but I have had some post that had a little darker tone but isn’t that how life is. You have to take the good with the bad.
Why I’m here – I’m here blogging because I have something valid to say. I have a viewpoint that no one else has. We are all unique, every last one of us, and we should have the opportunity to say what we feel. Some are good at saying it in public, I am not, so I say it through my blog. I am taking the Blogging 101 class because I need all the help I can get with organizing my blog and coming up with a schedule I can stick with.
Day 1 down, look for more to come! If you are new, thank you for checking me out!!
