This week I am participating in a new meme. Each week we are asked a question or given a prompt and we share our answers or our opinions. This week's two questions are: What are your current Blogging goals? And, do you have a plan for achieving them?
My immediate and most current Blogging goal is simply to blog with hopes of building a good many followers, meet new friends, find other good blogs, hopefully entertain, and possibly even enlighten you with my nature photography.
I began studying photography as a serious amateur approximately three years ago. I have become aware of so much beauty in nature. I am starting to be able to distinguish different calls that certain birds make. I find beauty in the tiniest weed, grasses, trees, vines, old barb wire, wooden fence posts, and of course, all of Oklahoma's beautiful horses and wonderful array of wildlife.
Sadly, I am also much more aware of how very much we are trashing our planet. I find huge piles of litter in some of the oddest places. I am working on adding some features to my blog now. One is a badge and link exchange. However, the most important one for me, is trying to figure out how I can use my nature, and environmental photography, to contribute in helping to clean up this planet we call home.
I do have an extensive Blogging history. I authored 'The Painted Veil' for over five years. I worked almost around the clock for five years until I had hundreds of followers, a Google page rank of five and my Technorati rating was somewhere around nine hundred. I still can't believe I deleted it. But, I did and, what's done is done. I do not expect to ever gain that amount of exposure again as I am not going to drive myself nuts working at this computer sixteen to eighteen hours a day for the next five years.
Now in conclusion, I plan to achieve my current goals by doing just what I am doing now. I am participating in a lot of memes and meeting a lot of great new people. I also have a ton of really good friends who know me from my old blog. Eventually, I have plans to market my photography and move on to a dot com address. But, for now, I am just enjoying taking my pictures and visiting all of my blogging pals.
That wasn't difficult and I hope I didn't bore you all to death. If you would like to join in just follow the little kittens in the badge below.
