This is today’s (actually yesterday’s) assignment from Blogging University. I’m going for easy and transparent, so I copied the instructions and will fill in:
…Today, publish a post you’d like your ideal reader to see, and include a new-to-you element.
- First, brainstorm the kind of person you hope will read your blog. What do you want to say to them?
Welcome, reader. I prefer talking in person with others, at least most others, while at the same time writing like this gives us a chance to share things in convenient ways. I’m learning how to communicate using a blog so that it has the most benefit to you while also being easy and enjoyable to read.
- Next, start your new post by clicking on the button below. Remember to include a media element (an image, a video embed, etc.) you haven’t experimented with yet.
I’m thinking video. Very simple. Let’s see if I can pull that off. I see that when put text in-between the numbered assignments, #2 became it’s very own #1. I like that: cheeky numbers.
I’m pasting the link to a video I just shot on my iPhone and uploaded to TouYube:
- Finally, give your post a few tags, including bloggingfundamentals, and publish it.
I’ll also add the tag “cheeky numbers.” That makes me chuckle.
Writing with a specific person in mind is a great way to focus your thoughts and goals. Exploring new media elements adds more tools to your storyteller’s toolbox and helps engage your readers.
