Apply to jobs at least once a week – I’ve finally settled on what type of job I would like to have within the wide field of technical communication. I have always wanted to write but now I know I want to write for the web – websites, blogs, and social media. I want to help companies connect with their audience online. I fell in love with content strategy during my last semester in grad school and I believe it’s the best way for me to explore my passion of technology and writing.
Start content strategy for Ann Singleton Tax Service, Inc. Facebook page – I created a content strategy report for my mother’s company last month for my final paper. In case you don’t know, content strategy for the web involves evaluating the content on your website or social media assets (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) and determining if the content is working for your image and your audience. There’s a lot more that goes into it but that’s the basic idea. Content could be anything on the site from any words to your pictures and videos. Content strategist could even suggest a change in the structure of your site even though I consider that more the work of an information architect.
Since things have slowed down for me, I can now focus on implementing my plan. I’ve already started on some parts of the plan but the biggest will be the Facebook page.
Reduce sugar intake – I still running strong with this one from last month. I’m taking it day by day. Last month I really didn’t battle any strong cravings but I did have tons to celebrate which always include some type of sugary dessert. Plus I had to indulge at ghirardelli in Miami.
Finish Couch to 5K (for real this time) – It’s only three days a week. I only have three weeks to go. I know I can do this. Instead of making myself run outside after work, I’m using the treadmill too. I rather run outside on the weekends when the temperatures are still low.
Walk 30 minutes a day – I’ve been reading pieces of Dr. Oz’s book “You on a Diet”. He talks about how walking 30 minutes a day is so beneficial to our health. I’ll only walk on the days I don’t run. I probably won’t walk everyday but I would like to walk at least 2 or 3 days at a week.
June NO BUY challenge – Every time I talk about doing this my boyfriend rolls his eyes. Maybe it’s because he knows I have a shopping problem. I’m committed this time though…I think. No I’m going to do it. It’s just 30 days. No shopping. No H&M, No Etsy, No Target, No Amazon. I’ll even wait to use my gift cards from graduation until July.
20 posts – I want to write at least 20 posts this month which is this many more than last month.
Start Facebook page for this site after 25 posts – I’m starting a Facebook page but I wanted to get enough posts on here before I really launched it to the world. As I write this I have 9 post and hope to have 25 by the middle of June.
