You are never too old to set a new goal and to dream a new dream – C. S. Lewis
It’s that time of the month again where I set out my goals for the month ahead. I love to write this post as it’s lovely to look ahead at the fresh month and be optimistic about my goals. I am motivated by the last two months success with page views and I’m certain that October is going to be my biggest month yet. I have a lot planned for this month and my October goals are going to reflect that.
Twitter – If you saw my goals recap from September you will see that I didn’t quite hit my follower target for Twitter. That is okay and I’m not mad about it, I’m just going to set the same goal again for this month and hope I can make it. By the end of October I would like to have reached 650 followers on Twitter. If you want to help me out you can follow me here.
Page Views – August was such a great month for my page views that I was a little nervous to set goals for September in case I didn’t quite do as well. However, I needn’t have worried because September was my best month so far for page views. With that in mind I’m setting a higher target this month of 1500 page views. I have a lot of posts coming up so I’m confident I can reach that!
Facebook – My goal for last month was to share one post a week to my personal Facebook page and I just missed the mark. I’m keeping the same goal this month of one post a week. I don’t want to spam my personal page too much as I’m not especially active on Facebook however, I know it is such a good source of traffic. I think one post a week is enough for the moment.
Pinterest – This month I am setting myself an extremely high target for Pinterest (follow me here). I didn’t quite reach my target for last month but I’m upping it again this month. One of my main October goals is to work on my Pinterest so I’m aiming for 100,000 monthly unique viewers and four out of five top performing pins. I’m positive that with the themed content I have coming up I can really make this work!
Bullet Journal – So last month I spent a lot of time on Pinterest looking at bullet journal page spreads and getting to grips with the bullet journal system. I spent a couple of days setting up my journal to start in October and I am ready to go. This month I’m setting myself the goal of actually using my bullet journal. My aim for this is to help me be a little bit more organised and focused.
Read more – I think this is going to be a staple goal for the rest of time because I really don’t think you can ever read too much. However, I have a lot of books to get through and I would love to make more time to read. I have a tracker in my bullet journal to write down the books I’ve read each month so I really want to make sure there is at least something on that page.
Do more with Emily – Now, I think I’m a pretty good mum. I love spending my days with Emily and watching her develop and learn. However, now that I’m definitely not going back to work for the foreseeable future I’ve decided I need to be better. I want to set up more activities and take her to the park more. My goal for this month is to set up two new activities a week, who knows, they might even make it to the blog!
What are your goals for this month?
