WordPress.com Blogging University Day Four Assignment: Identify Your Audience

meI would like to reach as wide an audience as possible. Ideally, I would like to reach fellow amateur poets, notable published poets, poetry critics, publishing houses, literary agents, and anyone else in the poetry publishing industry.

For the second part of today’s assignment, I’m not exactly sure which new element to include. I’ve already used pictures in the few blogs I’ve posted. When I use content like that, I try to remain aware of the source to properly cite them unless the content is part of the public domain. I have also posted poems since poetry is my primary focus.

I think I’ll embed content from other social media sites I use. I’ve created an author page on Facebook as an offshoot of my personal page. It’s something to get me going in the poetry world. When I post to WordPress, the posts are instantly shared with my Facebook author page. My posts are also shared with my Twitter account. I’m not sure if they’re shared with my LinkedIn or Pinterest accounts yet. That may be for the future. Until then I’ll embed my Pinterest profile. I have exactly twenty boards with the one I created three days ago, “For the Love of Fonts”. The boards I pin to the most are “STAR WARS!”, “LEGO!”, and “Creative Writing”.

To maintain a consistent presence across all of the social media platforms I use, I keep my profile picture the same throughout. It’s not an ancient picture, but it’s not exactly recent either. I’m not trying to sell myself on a dating website with it so I’m not concerned about that. It’s my favorite picture from my last deployment to Qatar and I’m wearing my favorite color – red. I think it shows an air of professionalism as well as conveys a lighter side of me.

  1. Thank you howtoaddict. I’ve got miles to go before I sleep. There are some cosmetic changes I want to make and I still have much to learn about WordPress Blogging. It’s been great so far. I love putting my words down on paper, though right now they’re mostly from the wonderful Blogging U instructions. Any suggestions on realizing my goals?
