#1 = single = first/firstly = one = sole = singular
The title, oddly, came in a dream. What does/did it mean? No idea! But I felt a need to play with it. Given this blog is related to writing/blogging and the gals (JJ, Rey and Linda) at the Triple Threat Investigation Agency, I’m simply going to type whatever pops into the ol’ noggin’. Why not do one post without a pre-set plan in mind?
The first action I’m taking this (very early) morning is penning this post. The second-first is taking a breather while enjoying a hot coffee (it’s really cold here right now) and a few cookies (orange-cranberry, in case you’re curious).
My single thought/objective re A Writer’s Grab-Bag: learn how to make and get the most out of it. Utilize all the bells and whistles. Make it happen. That’s the #1 intention for the year.
My sole aim re the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series: get ”Forever Poi” completed and ready for Amazon, etc. My one dream re the TTA P.I.s? <LMAO> Get a film/TV deal.
Maybe you’re new to this blog or blogs in general, or are thinking of starting your own. That’s awesome! You’ve got your #1 on the list nailed.
The #1 question on some folks’ minds perhaps: why create a blog? We-ell, besides the fact it’s fun, blogging’s become a prevalent means of communication. It’s an excellent way to share information. Did you know money could be made at blogging? T’is true. It takes time, however, and commitment . . . and, as the saying goes, don’t quit your day job (at least not right away).
So, first and foremost, determine your niche/focus. Who will you blog for? Make it a sole priority to become familiar with “Blogging 101”. Don’t be daunted by the plethora of information out there; embrace it.
It’s been on your mind, on your tongue, and in your heart—so, commit to it. And Day One: set up that blog (it’s neither difficult nor time-consuming). It’s Establish goals. Get a domain name and blog host, install a free blogging platform, add an opt-in form to collect subscribers/followers, start posting (take a look at last year’s posts). And after you’ve got that marvelous eye-catching blog up and running, one thing you’ll want to do: keep it interesting, keep it fresh/current.
We all have it within us to do well. You (and I) can be top bloggers—#1s! It’s merely a matter of applying ourselves and managing each objective as if it were the first and foremost one.
We’ve won when even one (no matter how small the goal is) is done, because—kudos to us—we made a decision and saw it through to fruition.
Ones have run into some, but they’re still single units in the grand scheme of it all. And now, the single thing I’m going to do is give thought to the weekend post while munching more of the aforementioned cookies. Nummmmm.
Have one heckuva day, my friends!
