Stitching for Literacy Update

The Monday “What have you done lately?” accountability post, where I announce my Needle and Thread: Stitching for Literacy program promotion goal for the week and fess up on last week’s goal.

Last week, my unofficial goal was to complete a task suggested by our marketing guru, and my official goal was to take the first step in matching some of the interested libraries with Challenge partners.

I completed the task for our guru and have another one to complete this week. I can’t say enough how great it is to have this guidance. We’ve had a lot of fun just winging things around here, but there is potential for so much more with proper–or any–management.

I also took the first step in matching a handful of libraries, and I did it just now because I couldn’t bear to admit here that I was a timid slacker who procrastinated so long I ran out of time between posts. Hats off to you faithful readers who nudge me along in spite of myself.

This week, I have three goals, and I’m going to go ahead and put them out there because I want to reach them.

1. I want to complete my homework for our guru.
2. I want to follow up on a bunch of recent goal activity that yielded no response. Following up is not my forte. I want to do things once and move on. Unfortunately, things rarely work that way.
3. I want to change the way I communicate with Challenge Participants. Right now, it’s hard and time-consuming, so I haven’t been doing it, which is bad bad bad. In a duh moment (as opposed to an a-ha moment), I finally figured out what would work best for all of us. I hope Participants will agree.

So there. Make me do all three, okay?
