For someone who is currently feeling a bit spare, this couldn’t be a more appropriate challenge. I’ll take that bonus point in advance.
So gang. It’s a very dreary and dreich day here some miles out of ye olde Edinburgh town – I’d be more specific, but I’m too easy to find. Thanks to an immobile Laidig Snr, Laidig Jnr has been doing anything and everything – moving trees, more garden hackery, more housekeeping – except what she wanted to do. For example, today I have cleaned an oven, sold the oven, tidied the front porch, taken the bins out, brought logs in, and now I’m doing some blog-homework before turning my attention back to reality: applications, projects, and Roland Garros. I’m knackered.
Hard as it might be to believe, I’ve been working since the beginning of last month to get this site back on track*. For reasons I’m not in control of, I haven’t been hitting/surpassing my monthly view targets and, thanks to a cock-up on my behalf, I didn’t double my follower count like I had hoped to by 2015’s close. So as mentioned a previous post, I’ve been working through a growing back up of people and sites. I’m nearing the finish line, but what I want to use this photo challenge for is a reiteration of this year’s goals. Why? Turns out that, five months in, I haven’t done a thing with them, and I’d love a bit of help.
• Actually create the blogroll/links of other theatrey-types,
• Hit 200 wp followers,
• Match followed to follower count (26 more sites to find and counting),
• Post about projects, something I’ve never done,
• Get my site up and running, and finally link it to here.
Yeah. Um. Well, in my defence, I’m doing really well with #3. But #2 is the cruncher. See, I want to buy my domain, but I don’t see the point in doing so at the follower count I have. But if I can hit 200 by this year’s close, I’ll buy it.
That’s where you, the reader, come in. If you’re a theatre-type, you know a site that is, or you just plain think your site is a cracking place to be, let’s get to know each other. Maybe it can be a three-birds-with-one-stone-deal, you never know!
Incidentally, I’ll be concentrating my content even more. I’m really enjoying my Sunday Round Ups, but my frequency is piss-awful, and I still have another 65 to feature! I also have a few more 10 Things I Hate About to work through, and I’m putting together a sort of ‘behind the scenes’ thing to some of my scripts. That, however, may take a bit of time, so be excited but patient.
Maybe this is why Scotland produced so many great thinkers and inventors – shit weather just focusses the mind, y’know?
* I aim for 200 minimum per month, and I am 200 views behind on this year alone. Before this month, that number was 258. Pulling it back, very slowly, working for every stat. I gave up on having a monthly follower aim ages ago, le sigh.
