Use Persona Paper and Other Online Sites to Track Your Hobbies

What if we didn't think about Persona Paper as a site to just contribute content?
What if instead we use it for exactly like it sounds -- a personal paper.

This is the story of me.
This is the story of what I'm up to.
It's breaking news about what's going on in my life.

WRITE ABOUT A SKILL YOU WANT TO IMPROVE

When I'm not writing or working, I'm busy line dancing. I just do it for fun. But I'd like to get better and there are sooooo many dances out there. So I've decided I'm going to up my game. I don't always want to be the one stumbling on the dance floor at socials or looking all fumbly.

MAKE PERSONA PAPER YOUR TASK MASTER

I had heard that one of the best ways to improve any skill is deliberate practice. It's being methodical in your approach to practice. So my first step is to start by writing down the new dances I've learned this week and keeping track of when I practice and review them.

STATE YOUR GOAL PUBLICLY AND REPORT ON YOUR PROGRESS

The second thing I've heard about establishing new habits is to go public. So I think using online sites like Persona Paper are the perfect venue to state your intentions publicly AND get paid for doing so.

Goal: Become a Better Dancer

I've made a master list of dances I've learned or reviewed this week. To see what's keeping me busy, click here .

I have class tonight so I know I need to review before class.

Bittersweet Memory
Beautiful In My Eyes
Nitty Gritty

I've always jotted down the list of dances I've learned in class in a little notebook. But then what's the point of scrawling down notes if I don't review 'em. Now I see having listed them all out on a master list why I feel so overwhelmed. There's a lot of dances I've learned just in a week.

P.S.

Still playing around with what content gets posted on which site. It's a work in progress and I think it's best to just play around and see which platform serves the content best. Which gets the kind of interaction you want. Where is it best monetized and so forth.

Do you have a passion you want to explore further this summer? Tell us about it.

Sounds like a great way to keep track of your activities and to keep you focused.

Kim --- So can we expect to see quilting updates?

This sounds like a great idea, I have many things I should probably keep better track of

Nice way to stay focused! I could use a little more of that. I would like to up my game on Hula Hooping! I haven't done it since I was a young child, but it's great exercise and the freedom of movement is beautiful.

I hear it's one of the latest in things to do it with a "weighted" hula hoop. Would love to see pictures of ya doing it.

That's actually a good idea, I'll have to think about it and get back to you. I have so many projects rumbling around in my head right now, I don't know which one(s) I should pick, lol.

I think that's a great idea, using Persona Paper more or less like a diary, a shared diary and then some. Let's face it, many of us don't have any shortage of things to talk/write about.

AdrienneJenkins wrote on June 26, 2014, 5:52 PM

Let's hear about all 15 projects in a day.

Its a great idea Adrienne! People can also use Google Keep along side Persona Paper if they like emoticon :smile:

This is another great idea from Adrienne. To use PersonaPaper like a personal diary is a way to keep track of your projects and to reach your goals. Very good.

This site has a lot of potential uses. This is a good one too.

I want to make the nonprofit where I work this summer, have the highest amount of money and more children served this season than any season before. It is a lofty goal, but I have a great team and I think it will work.

Thanks AdrienneJenkins for the suggestions. I think sharing a personal objective is a great use for this site. Have a great time with your dancing goals.

I tend to blur the boundaries between personal experience and what I read, study, etc so for me PP pages are a platform for all things
