It seems completely crazy to me that this is the last month of the year that I’ll be sharing my goals. I’ve gotten so much done for my blog this year, but not so much for the personal side of things. I decided to change the word I use when I don’t finish a goal from FAIL to NOPE because they are still going to get done, I just didn’t finish them yet! I don’t want to do too much in December because I want to make sure to enjoy the holiday, but there are a few things that need to happen.
START DOING MORE COLLABS – NOPE – I have one collab project that’s in progress, but it’s more of a long-term thing. I’ll be brainstorming ideas this month. I want to figure out a way to do collabs that aren’t webinars because my social anxiety self isn’t quite ready for that yet.
REVAMP MY SITE – NOPE – I attempted to work on a couple things and then I got distracted by a cheesy Christmas movie that I watch with my mom.
MASTER MY MARKET – SOMEWHAT DONE – I only got through one module done, but I’m planning on finally getting to it this week.
KEEP UP WITH LAST MONTHS LIFE GOALS – SOMEWHAT DONE – I did everything except for exercising! I am officially done with pop! I haven’t noticed a difference yet, but I’m limiting myself to only restaurants and special occasions. I only applied to a couple more locations and I did pretty well with limiting spending.
KEEP UP WITH PLANNED POSTS & NEWSLETTERS – For once, I actually planned out every post for the month of December! I’m also starting this post a week and a half before it’s supposed to go live instead of the night before. Hopefully, this will help me stay on top of my content. I also have only sent out one newsletter so far and I really need to start sending them every other week.
BRAINSTORM – My time is usually spent writing my posts last minute or procrastinating from them. I’m hoping being able to get my content written more in advance will allow me to start coming up with new ideas for content, collabs & possible products.
CREATE A BUSINESS PLAN FOR MY BLOG – I’ve never really had a plan for my blog and I want to change that for next year. I’m going to start coming up with a plan for what I want to get done each month and where I want to end up by the end of 2016.
HAVE FUN – Christmas is definitely my favorite holiday and while I have a ton of things I’d love to get done this month I want to make sure I don’t spend too much time on my blog. I love spending time with my family and I decided not to blog for the week of Christmas so I can focus on them. We always have a blast and laugh way too much. My mom has been obsessed with watching cheesy Christmas movies, so I’ve been making sure to watch with her occasionally.
I love that you have “have fun” as a goal…priorities on point!
Definitely, it’s important to enjoy the Holidays, especially since it’s my favorite time of the year! 🙂
My big goal this month is consistency. I’ve found that I haven’t been consistent with my blog in the past and I want that to change. So far, I’ve written a post and scheduled an accompanying newsletter (for a special series – I don’t normally do a newsletter every day!) for 7 days of December. Since we’re only on day 6, I’m pretty happy with that!
Consistency has been something I’ve been struggling with for a while, especially with a full-time job. That’s awesome! I’d love to be able to do that at some point, but right now I’m barely getting 2 done a week and a newsletter every other.
