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?

    • Ooh I never thought of a Q&Q Buddy…can you add that to the poll please! If you can that is; never created a poll before!

      • If you are keen, I am ready and available! 😀
        I think we are in the same boat here… I have no idea how to create or add a poll.

        I think Hugh (down below) will have a better idea.

  1. Wordle Wednesday sounds great – my mind is wondering what it could be, but I have just voted for it.

    • Hugh, your assistance is needed! 😛
      Neither Jemma or I know how to make a poll. Feel free to enlighten us if you know how.

      • Just been beaten to it ladies. See below. Thanks for your help nerdinthebrain.

  2. I love the “Idiom of the Week” idea. 😀 Especially if it included the literal interpretation pictures…those always make me giggle. 😉

    To add a poll, go to your post editor…you’ll see some buttons along the top (like “Add Media”)…one of those buttons is “Add Poll.” I think the first time you do it, you have to sign up for a free account with the service, but, after that, you can just ask people to vote for things all over the place. I hope that helped! 🙂

  3. I love the Throwback Thursday idea. Congrats on making it through Blogging U 101!

  4. Many thanks for the ideas everyone; it seems that only two people have voted in the poll. Not to worry; look out for some new posts coming soon
