I am trying out some new New Year’s Resolutions ideas this year. I know, I know–soooo cliche. I promise I’ll be brief.
The first “new” item on my list was to pick a word that will represent all my blogging goals for 2018. I have chosen the word CREATE. I will focus on creating new material, new series and new readers during the next 12 months. I also hope to create a small income, but that’s really a secondary goal.
The second is to CREATE a mission statement for my blog so that all my goals will align with that central theme. So here it is…..drum roll, please….
My blog’s mission is to assist non-Mexicans (Expats) learn about living in rural Mexico by sharing our family adventures and disasters along with the stories experience by others and to keep my mom up-to-day on our daily happenings.
In order to advance the above mission statement I have the following goals for 2018:
I hope to develop a variety of featured guest posts including but not limited to: Charities and Non-Profit Organizations, Inspiring Authors in Mexico, Blogs about Mexico Worth Reading, Small Businesses in Mexico, and Individuals Braving Mexico. (See Your Stories About Mexico).
I plan to participate in the April Blog Challenge based on the topic A to Z Reasons I Love Mexico along with my SOTB Blogging Group. Last year I completed the A to Z Survival Series.
I really would like to finish and translate (well, my son will be doing the translating) my animal adventure e-book.
I am determined to continue with the Herbal Lore monthly posts about local plant life, their medicinal properties and the lovely teas you can make with them. Plus offer relevant e-book bundles when they become available.
And that’s it. I told you I’d be brief. I’ll post an update (and hopefully release date as well) mid-way through the year.
