I started realizing I wasn’t doing anything with my yearly goals while writing my halfway through the post so this month I’m really trying to start making things happen in July! I didn’t end up getting most of my goals in June done because I took an unexpected blogging break for a couple of weeks. I had a bunch of setbacks with WordPress which are slowly starting to work themselves out and the best thing for me to do was to step back for a while. I’m super excited for July and ready to get my butt in gear and start making things happen.
START PROMOTING MYSELF AS A DESIGNER – FAIL – Not going to lie, I didn’t even touch this one.
LAUNCH MY NEWSLETTER – FAIL – Didn’t touch this one either, it’s going to be a goal for this month.
READ SAINT ANYTHING & EXTRAORDINARY MEANS – DONE! – The only goal I actually accomplished this month. This might not seem like a huge accomplishment, but a couple months ago I would rarely even read one book in a month.
MAKE SNAPCHAT STORIES – FAIL – I really have no idea what to put in my SnapChat stories. I mean all I do it work 5 days a week and then come home & blog. I think I’m just going to hold off on SnapChat until my life gets a little more interesting and work more on other social media platforms because I haven’t been doing so well with them lately.
I just got some new eye brushes yesterday, I wouldn’t have gotten them since I didn’t do too great on my goals. but I needed to spend 12 more dollars on Sephora to get free shipping so I decided to get them. May’s incentive still hasn’t happened since June was so busy but I’m hoping sometime this weekend, I have all my supplies!
IMPLEMENT MY BLOG IDEAS – I’ve had a few ideas for my blog and this month is the time to start making them happen. I don’t want to say too much right now but one will be a one-time thing and the other will be monthly! I really can’t wait to share them with you though!
UPDATE MY PAGES – My pages aren’t very well written and some of them need a little more content. I tried to get them done before I launched my WordPress blog, but I kept putting it off because it’s harder to talk just about myself. Once I get the content written I’m going to have someone help me refine them and make sure they flow nicely.
LAUNCH MY NEWSLETTER – Since I failed at this last month, it’s back on my list again!
START PROMOTING MYSELF AS A DESIGNER – Another repeat from last month!
BRAINSTORM PASSIVE INCOME IDEAS – I recently purchased XO Sarah’s new eBook all about passive income and I really want to get some steady income through my blog. Since I’m not doing very well at promoting myself as a designer I’m not really gaining any clients. I’d love to start saving up a little more money for when I get my own apartment.
APPLY TO JOBS – Time to actually start applying to jobs. I don’t know why this one makes my so nervous, but still really excited at the same time.
COMPLETE MY CHECKLIST – I started making a checklist on Saturday of all the things I want to do with my blog. It consists of posts, the blog ideas I mentioned before, a giveaway I’m planning, my goals for this month & a few other things I’ve been putting off doing with my blog. Some are easy while others will take a while to complete.
If When I complete my goals for the month, I’m going to invest in an (online) personal trainer. I’m going to be working at doing more exercise on my own, but I feel like I really need someone to help push me. The reason behind the trainer being online is because I hate working out in front of people and I’d rather just work with someone online instead. If you know anyone let me know!
