Zero to Hero: Day Twenty-Nine

    I write a weekly motivation post on my blog, based on an inspirational quote I’ve found, but I’m not really sure what people would like to read more; how the subject of the quote has affected me in my life, or just general motivational chitchat? or both?


    @pkanwar1983, I’m not sure why that gray block is appearing, especially because you other posts look fine. It may be time to post a question in the regular support forums.

    @anamelio, I’m with you! I love paper, and the computer-based tools I use are the ones that most closely mimic simply writing a list.

    @captjillf, you can do a combo of both. If you use others’ photos, though, you might make sure the accompanying post has a personal angle and isn’t purely informational.

    @cogitoergomum, I second the Buffer recommendation. It’s what we use for scheduling/managing social media, too.

    @sarahkey1, why not ask your readers? They’ll tell you.



    I feel a bit like I’m leaping off a cliff here but I’ve decided to try a weekly post. I’ve called it, “Things you didn’t know about Nana” inspired by my grandchildren being shocked when I do something they don’t expect. I figure younger people could let the cat out of the bag, revealing something they found startling about their grandmas.



    Now I need a bit of help. If someone clicks on my avatar it takes them to a different blog of mine. This is the one I want to link to



    @timethief . . . oh my word I am NOT flirting online but I do get you . . . are we related???



    I just wanted to say hi. I just started my blog a few minutes ago. I hope I can still do these activities even though it looks like your are done with it soon. I’m going to try to do a few and see if I can get my blog up and looking good. If you would like to see the progress of my blog as it goes, here’s a link to it – – Thanks again.


    Could it really be just one more day? Not ready to say goodbye. Will miss Z2H. I did start a regular feature on my blog called Fiesta Friday and would love to have you all join the party.
    @timethief, I refer blogger buddies to you all the time. You always have the answers.
    @birgerbird, I hope to see you at the party.
    @michelleweber, come and visit us once in awhile. It feels reassuring having you around overseeing things.



    @angiechristina Amen Sistah Friend!!!! More appetizer ideas and recipes, please!



    I really learned a lot from Z2H. Every blogger, “newbies” and “experienced” alike should try to go through it. Newbies will be enlightened and the experienced ones might just find something they missed. Today’s challenge can make a blog sustainable. I am making my calendar of activities now. This is gonna be interesting :-)



    OK, a bit of a schedule then… Well, I published it on a static page so i guess I’ll have to stick to it….



    I love this idea of a regular feature. Perfect for my blog.
    I am thinking of doing a regular backstory/interview of someone either well-known or very successful who also is in recovery. My problem is that I don’t know a boatload of well-known people. I guess I can start small and work my way up. I think it will have to be monthly to give me room for error and time to find someone.
    My other idea is a weekly crazy thought, but that doesn’t stretch my boundaries much. :)



    I already started Wisdom Wednesday, a quote-based post on… you guessed it… Wednesdays. Now I will be adding a photo-based post on Mondays. I am also going to be getting some drafts out of my head and ready for tweaking and/or posting. One more day… : )


    @syndromelady, please feel free to work your way through the tasks — they’ll all be on The Daily Post through the end of February, and maybe beyond — we’ll be working out the best place for them to live.

    @angiechristina, or course! The love goes both ways :)

    @anniethinksabout, I think that’s a great idea, and might suggest that stories from not-well-known people — regular people in recovery and leading happen lives — would be just as compelling. Give a voice to some folks who don’t have their own online platforms.



    Just wondering whether the Zero to Hero info will stay online as a resource? My past month has been way too full-on to do much more than dip into this challenge, but I would love to refer to all the daily assignments in the future. Thanks!


    @angiechristina – Thanks to you and Fiesta Friday I have already (unwittingly!) nailed this task!

    And earlier in the week I started a notebook with ideas for posts grouped into my categories – I should have posts for a good couple of months now, and that’s not even including ones which hit me out of the blue! So feeling very prepared and I’ve got a much better idea of where I want to go with my blog.

    Thanks so much to Zero to Hero and all who worked on it, especially @michelleweber!



    Okeydoke…will put up the question in Sunday support forum…


    @aliloud, yes, it will stay online — look for a wrapup post on The Daily Post later this afternoon with more detail.



    Making an editorial calendar was one the best change I did for my blog. I do not have a ” squeaky Tuesdays” or any such titles but it is more goals for me. This is my week.
    Monday: sneak preview of creative procedure
    Tue: What has inspired( web sites)
    you this week with links
    Wed: Share workspace
    Thur: Fav photos found this week
    Fri: business procedures

    So I made a Monday post last week giving some ideas what I will post about. Tuesday will be garden techniques that had inspired me and links to other site. Wed will be garden tool cleaning techniques. As you can see it is a bit flexible on the topic but having a calendar has really helped. I still enjoy daily prompts although I am not the greatest writer in the word it makes me think and challenge myself. Hopefully my post are getting better.
