The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them – Og Mandino
After the success of last months goals I am more motivated than ever to set high goals and achieve them. I have a lot planned for this little internet space and I’m so excited to see what the future holds.
I’m not making any goals for Instagram this month. I’m going to take the pressure off myself and just let the account grow at the speed it’s going to grow. If you want to help and you like to see cute photo’s of Emily then you can follow me here.
Twitter – I am starting September off with 514 followers. I would love to reach 650 by the end of the month. This isn’t as big a milestone as I usually set however, I feel like the growth on Twitter has slowed down slightly so I feel like this is a realistic target. You can follow me here.
Page Views – Last month was AMAZING for my views. You can read all about it here. I am setting a goal of 750 views for September. This is double the goal I set for last month but is less than what I actually achieved. I don’t want to set myself too high a target and feel disheartened if I don’t reach it. 750 views in a month is still amazing and I hope I can achieve and exceed this.
Pinterest – I am starting the month of September with 19K monthly unique viewers and 3 out of 5 of my top performing pins are related to my blog. By the end of the month I would love to have 50K monthly unique viewers and at least 4 out of 5 top performing pins be my own. You can follow me on Pinterest here.
Facebook – This is the first month I have set a Facebook related goal. I do not have a blog Facebook, only my personal one. Last month I trialled posting links to my posts to my personal Facebook page to gauge how this impacted my views. I found it was really successful but it makes me so nervous to have people I know in my real life read my blog. This month I am challenging myself to post one link a week to my personal Facebook page.
Clean every day – With Mrs Hinch on the rise, I can confirm that I have been inspired. I am not one for cleaning at all but for some reason this woman makes me want to scrub down everything I own. I am challenging myself to clean something every single day. It’s about time I started helping out a bit more around the house and for the time being I’m enjoying cleaning!
Read more – This was a goal from last month that has transferred over. If you read my recap post you will see that I decided on ‘needs improvement’ for this goal. I have just finished my first book in about 6 months and I am reminded how much I love to read. I am aiming to finish four books this month at the very least!
Get out more – Similar to my previous goals of ‘walk more’ I am aiming to get out of the house more. I would like to get out and about at least 5 days out of 7. I am doing well on my One Million Steps challenge and I actually really enjoy tracking my steps. This month I would like to make more effort to be outside in the fresh air and just do more.
So there we have it. That is my goals for the month. I feel as though they are all very much achievable and I feel confident that I can have another amazing and successful month. I feel more motivated than ever with this little blog and I feel as though my stats are starting to reflect that.
What goals have you set yourself for September?
