It’s 2018 and there is no better way to start the year than with a challenge. This year, I want to push myself to be a better blogger, vlogger, content manager, netizen… whatever it is I do. One way I thought I could push myself is to require myself to post in every online outlet I have at least once every month. And I can achieve this by imposing a theme for every month. Let us begin with the January 2018 Word: NEW.
January 2018 Word: New
New may mean anything. A new me. A new dish I made or tried, a new habit, a new friend, a new product. Anything new. Whatever new means to me and you, in different ways, that is ok.
1 : having recently come into existence : recent, modern
2 a (1) : having been seen, used, or known for a short time : novel
(2) : unfamiliar
b : being other than the former or old
3 : having been in a relationship or condition but a short time
4 a : beginning as the resumption or repetition of a previous act or thing
b : made or become fresh
c : relating to or being a new moon
5 : different from one of the same category that has existed previously
6 : of dissimilar origin and usually of superior quality
I will be posting blog posts, videos, tweets, photos, and anything else online that will have the theme new. I will be using the hashtag #Jan2018New.
At the end of the month, hopefully, I will not have only shared the January 2018 Word: New with you. I hope to know more about me and what new means to me and what other ways can new have meaning for me and my life. You are also invited to share with me what the word means to you.
On February, I will come back to this blog and post a summary of all my posts with the theme “NEW.”
2018 Monthly Word Challenges
Every month, I will post a word here that will guide some (not all) my posts. I will be required to post at least one relevant blog post, one video, one tweet, one IG photo, and one Facebook post about the word. The goal is to encourage me to think and post more consistently. To offer posts and thoughts that are useful and insightful. Continue reading January 2018 Word: NEW [Blogging Challenge]→
I have been blogging for more than six years. (I know, right?) After attending the Cebu Blog Camp last weekend, I became more inspired to improve as a blogger. I decided to finally do something I have never tried: PODCAST.
My first podcast was as a guest in the Pakbet Podkast last Sunday which was so sabog and funny. I did mention the Cebu Blog Camp there but we also talked about a lot of other things.
I decided that I would start my own podcast. And since I am not sure yet what my podcasts are going to be about and how I am going to structure and direct it, I decided to make a test podcast with Cebu Blog Camp as a topic.
I used the microphone of an A4Tech Headset to record the podcast. The recording software used is the Windows 7 Sound Recorder, imported to ULead Video Studio, edited and saved as MP4. I converted the MP4 to MP3 using a free software from Brothersoft. Then, I uploaded it to Archive.org. Nosebleed!
Did you ever feel like life is happening around you but you are not a part of it? That’s what I feel right now.
I feel a sort of disconnection with the world, like things are happening around me and I’m too caught up with the different things I am busy with to be part of the bigger picture. It’s like there’s that great big world out there… and I’m not part of it.
