One of the things that I’ve been really considering lately is my blog. What can I do differently with it…should I play with the design….am I blogging about what’s important? You know…little things. New year…New Blog…You know how it goes.
While on twitter I stumbled across this tweet talking about how to re-invent (or invent) your blog and make it … more. So, because my life isn’t complicated enough…and I’m a glutton for punishment…and I’m really really hoping to make a blog that’s worth the time you take to read it – I decided to join the challenge. If you are a WordPress blogger, I challenge you to do it as well (because then I won’t feel like an idiot!).
So…the first challenge is….((drum roll please))
I am supposed to introduce myself..
“Hello….my name is Mary and I’m a …” wait…Let’s try it again.
For the majority of you reading this, you already know who I am. My name is Mary Huston, I’m a school-based Speech Language Pathologist who blogs about whatever I decide I want to blog about… wait… no…that still doesn’t sound right.
I blog about things relating to speech-language pathology. These may be issues in the workplace – discussions that have come up on Facebook or twitter – or reviews of different apps that are used in speech-language therapy. (okay…it IS about whatever I decide I want to blog about! It just sounded bad to start with that.)
I came into blogging about 1 1/2 years ago and even though I truly angsted (is that a verb?*) about blogging, I haven’t looked back. I love connecting with other professionals through my blog. For me, blogging isn’t about personal stuff (that’s what
For those wondering…there will apparently be several learning posts associated with the ZerotoHero (why do I always type hear instead of hero?) challenge – it is a 30 day challenge after all…but I’m sure you can figure out the difference between those and my normal posts. One, they’ll be more regular..LOL. But, for those of you who are only paying partial attention – they’ll also have the Adventures with Zero-to-Hero (1, 2, 3, etc…) tag.
For those of you who are WordPress bloggers – are you taking up the challenge? For those of you reading – will you stick with me through the challenge? (pretty please????)… and for those of you true diehards that have been with me from the beginning…what should I change or NOT change about the blog? I was already told I shouldn’t change my header picture. Anything you absolutely love (or hate)…and please don’t say my writing style….
Drop me a line…
until then…Adventure on!
* I know angsted isn’t a real word – but it sounded cool in my head…It should have been “I experienced angst at the idea of blogging”…I was trying to be funny…give me a break!
