Zero to Hero – Day 29: Plan the Next Thirty

Comments 14 Standard

Today’s assignment: sketch out an editorial calendar to cover your next 30 days of blogging.

I am actually liking the idea of ‘planning’! It will give me a possible reason to buy this:


It is from HappyOrganizedLife at her Etsy Store. Erin is one of many people I have fallen in love with; her work to say – I have fallen for her work! Erin has also created a Travel Set which I REALLY want need to buy!

I have already created; well drafted what I want to write about for the next few days. I am just waiting for the results of the poll I created in my previous post. I am thinking about making some resources; which I know I will use!

One of these posts is going to be a Q&A post; as angiemdelamere has offered to a buddy with me *waves hi* which I think is a fantastic idea!

Zero To Hero – Day 28: Create a New Feature

Comments 12 Standard

Today’s assignment: develop a regular feature for your blog.

Why do this? Why create a regular feature on ‘My TEFL Adventures’? I know that doing this regular feature will make readers have something specific to wait for at regular intervals — in other words, my blog has a hook. Just like Ailsa and her Travel Themes and it is always a good idea to work on healthy blogging habits and regular features help me stay on track.

But what can I do? Some of the examples that have been given on the Daily Post are:


  • A weekly photo post (or even better: a weekly photo gallery post) – that could be an idea; but I feel that this is not suitable for this blog at this particular moment in time
  • A monthly Q & A with one of your blogging buddies – I think this is a good idea; but I do not know where I would start from though?!
  • A Music Monday, featuring the song that rocked your weekend – this could be a possiblity, but currently I am not listening to much music 😦
  • A Flavor Friday dedicated to the recipe you experimented with over the previous week – to be honest I do not really cook at home and my food is the same most weeks!

I have thought of about doing a ‘Throwback Thursday’ post where I write about something that has happened in the past or a ‘List Friday’; where I write list of things. However; similar to what Papered Thoughts (Rin) does at her blog and on her Instagram. As ‘My TEFL Adventures’ is a blog is about my TEFLing adventures I think that my regular feature must be something linked to TEFLing or English.

I could do a “Idiom of the Week” or a “Metaphor of the Week” – what do you all think? I have created a poll and I hope that you will all help me decide. As I do appreciate all my readers and followers; as you are the people (in theory) I am writing for, other than ‘venting’ my experiences.

Which feature should I do?
