Well folks, two down and one to go! You’ve already read about our individual resolutions for this year, but what about the blog itself? We’ve got big goals on that front, as well. We hope you’ll stick around for the next twelve months and keep us accountable!
1.) Generate Discussion
Beneath the many topics and opinions we cover, the underlying message of our blog never changes: we believe everyone, women especially, should be empowered to use their voices and speak up. We are not satisfied with passive discontent, and you shouldn’t be either. Nothing ever changes when silence overrules objection. This year, we’re going to rock the boat. We want you to rock it with us. We resolve to continue writing for you, but, we will also constantly be challenging you with a variety of other content via our social media pages. The hope is to facilitate discussion and work together to learn the art of listening to and appreciating opposing points of view. The topics may be silly or serious, but your commentary is always sincerely appreciated. If you are open to participating and helping us reach our goal, be sure to follow our social media pages below:
2.) Expand Our Focus (Marketing and technology)
Speaking of social media, uh… we’re still new to the game. Honestly, we’re pretty disappointing for a pair of Millenials, so our goal this year is to dedicate some serious time and energy into figuring out how to maximize our viewership through social media. We love to write. We love to write for you. But that doesn’t do much good when our readership is low. So tag all your friends! Share every post! Send us some love! We want to help all women find the courage to use their voice.
(Okay, okay, calling on you to increase our readership isn’t exactly the goal here… we know we’re going to have to roll up our sleeves and get to work! …but you’re always free to send us some love!)
3.) Amplify Your Voices
Notice how we keep saying that our goal is to encourage women be vocal about issues that matter to them? We mean it! While the two of us have plenty to say, (seriously, one of us is almost always talking while the other always has conversations happening in her head. We’ll let you figure out who is who!) simply expressing our own opinions doesn’t fully embrace our mission. We want to hear from you!
Our goal for this year is to highlight voices from every background and persuasion. Have an idea you can’t get out of your head? Dying to share some profound or perfectly mundane insight about parenthood or careers? Passionate about a news story making the rounds and want to share your own opinion? Write it down and send it our way. We just might feature it on the blog! And don’t stress about whether or not you think you’re a good writer. Take a step out of your comfort zone and give it a whirl. We can tell you from experience, it’s worth the effort! When you’re ready, simply send us a message through any of our social media sites or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cheers to a new year, friends! 2017 is going to be great!
