So, last year I started my feature called Educate Emma. This feature's goal was to culturally educate me. Thing is, I failed on every goal I started.
Yep. Every. One. I am a big ol loser.
This is okay though. I'm realizing that I fall into a regular pattern when it comes to my projects: I set the bar too high and then suffer miserably when I don't reach them. The problem with Educate Emma was that I promised to review absolutely all of the media I consumed - plays, movies, TV, albums and books. This made cultural consumption seem like a chore. The whole point of Educate Emma was to NOT make learning a chore. So, I have a revised plan for Educate Emma:
1. I will review all TV seasons and books I consume - TV seasons because I don't watch a lot of them, and books because I am still predominately a book blog. However, for albums, movies and plays, I will choose one of each per month to highlight. This means that I can pick the most pieces I have the most thoughts on and also eliminate a huge workload for myself.
2. My goal is to post twice a week. If I can produce more content, awesome. But two weekly posts is the manageable bare minimum I can maintain. This is way better than leaving you all in the dark for so long.
3. My Educate Emma goals:
A. A book a week. (52 books)
B. Two plays a month. (24 plays)
C. An album every week. (52 albums)
D. A TV season every other month. (6 seasons)
E. Two movies a month. (24 movies)
I really plan on meeting these goals this year. I want to start producing more regular content. My blog is an extension of my writing style and my history, and I love creating reviews for it. I also want to do more discussion posts and engage more in the community.
What are your blogging goals for 2013?
