At the end of last year I posted about 5 goals I have for my blog this year and also about some personal goals concerning things I would like to achieve this year. In order to keep on top of these I really feel the best way would be to break items down and have a firm plan to concentrate on certain aspects of these goals each month. I think this will work best by setting myself some monthly goals to achieve.
This month I would like to:
1 Improve Photography
I would like to take a number of standard shots that can be used on general posts for example a post like this that doesn’t need specific photographs of a certain item but whether a general ‘blog’ or ‘personal’ photo would easily fit. I did start by taking a few in January and I would like to expand my generalised blogging photos this month. I have been having fun with flat lay photographs but soon clicked I need to go on a shopping spree for lots of filler items!
2 Write 5 Back Up Blog Posts
Having chronic illnesses that are unpredictable sometimes means that although I plan to do XYZ it sometimes doesn’t happen as I suddenly wake up rather ill when the day before I felt fine. I plan to blog 3 times a week this year on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on this blog. In order to achieve this I need back up posts and also need to be a week ahead with my blogging schedule. Too often last year I sat writing a post needing to publish it that day and I didn’t always achieve this. This year the plan is this will not happen.
3 Afternoon Tea
I want to have afternoon tea at a different place each month this year. This is certainly on my to do list this month. I’m hoping to go somewhere next week in Birmingham. If you are local and have any suggestion for a venue please let me know.
4 Setting New Business Up
Another one of monthly goals I have is to concentrate on setting up my new business. I have some suppliers to see next week regarding this so it will be busy busy busy where the business is concerned. I would also like to have began work on the new website.
5 Craft Goals
This covers me wanting to knit socks and also crochet 3 items this year. The plan is I will continue knitting my socks and I will sort out all my yarn supplies in preparation for working on my crochet plans.
Do you have any plans to set some monthly goals that you would like to achieve either on your blog or in your personal life?
