Getting this blog set up is going to take some work up front before I start posting about my goals. It's like getting your tools all ready before starting a project so you don't have to run around looking for every tool after every step.
Here's what I need to do to get this set up:
- Create an image of myself (drawing or photo) for about page (05.01.18 edit: using the logo I drew, a self portrait will have to come later)
- Create an image for the home page (through photography and photoshop or sketching, ok to be rough, don't let perfection be the enemy of good enough. (05.01.18 edit: took photo of my little ceramic elephant, wanted to do my stuffed knit elephant that ER made for me but it won't stay up on its own so that will have to come another time)
- Figure out how to set up a newsletter service to let people know about new posts (05.01.18 edit: figured out a way to do it manually)
- Start writing posts about the steps I have already accomplished! The blog is about action, things I did, not things I'm gonna do. (05.01.18 edit: started planning things and writing a few things, will be ready to start tracking after I return from MN)
