2015 Monthly Goals {September} 

monthly goals

Happy September everyone! It is such an exciting month for me, though I do not know what will happen tomorrow but I love the idea that have planned something and God willing it all goes to plan. I can hardly believe September is here so I keep pinching myself checking and asking is it really September? I am flying out this week for my long overdue vacation, you have no idea how long have been wishing and hoping for this day to come. I have rescheduled it so many times to accommodate other people but this time I decided enough is enough and I am going so ladies and gents all booked and confirmed. I am so excited, I will not say my destination but it includes Amsterdam, Netherlands and Fukuoka, Japan. Anyway onto the reason for this post, the goals.

Let us look at what I scheduled for August and how much have accomplished or not done at all.

AUGUST GOALS

The goals for August are as follows:

  • Read 4 books – I have not read a book since March, I have been slacking big time. I absolutely love reading but put this on a back burner for far too long. FAILED – bought one kindle book and have been meaning to read it but kept forgetting. This goal will be moved to September.
  •  Spend time with family – funny that I even have to document this but I have not seen my parents for over a month now and we only live 2 hours apart. I have my many excuses handy but I need to make time. PASSED – spent time with my sister she came to visit me then spent the bank holiday weekend in Wales with my parents.
  • Reconnect with old friends – Again funny I have to document this but in this busy day and age I seem to need to be reminded of the norm. PASSED – have reconnected with my friends which has been nice and this week I am going to visit the other friend.
  • Blog schedule – I need to recreate my blog schedule, I am not the greatest blog around but I functioned better when I had a schedule to go by. PASSED – this has been on point, used one weekend in August and scheduled 2 weeks worth of daily posts which was awesome for me.
  • Blog posts – Do equal amounts sponsored and equal how to, tips, fashions etc. I am feeling as though I am losing myself in all these sponsored posts. Don’t get me wrong I am grateful but I feel I am losing the reason I started blogging. PASSED – I was able to do equal sponsored and non-sponsored posts, made me feel good to just write a post because I felt like sharing not because I was asked/paid which I am not saying I hate I am grateful just nice not getting lost in the money.

Now onto the September Goals 

  • Read 4 books – I have not read a book since March, I have been slacking big time. I absolutely love reading but put this on a back burner for far too long
  • Blog about my vacation and share the vacation pictures.
  • Improve blog traffic – I used a blogger friends post on how she managed to triple her blog traffic in a month. I know it won’t happen overnight but need to start working on. I will be honest have worked on my following but never really put much effort into traffic, sure I have a blogger support group on Facebook and participate in blogger groups but never actively worked on the blog for traffic improvement.
  • Do something have never done before, I got this idea from boo. When we were away a few months back he took me ice skating and go karting, I have never done either of these before, I was so terrified but after it was over I was glad I did them. Obviously I won’t be buying ice skates anytime soon but I will be going go karting again.

These are some of the personal goals I want to accomplish in September!!

Do you have any goals set? How did you do last month?

    I also keep thinking to myself… “wow, it’s September?! really?!” I do love this time of year because it’s sort of like my head start on the New Year. Love your goals list!

    I’ve set myself with some goals and I take one step back than two steps forward. I’m getting there! 🙂

    I don’t think I could read 4 books! I only read when on holiday. I too am working on a goal to improve blog traffic…think I read the same post and trying the same tactics. Find stumble upon very good. Pinterest also. Good Luck!

    I too always have huge goals to read more and then life happens and it is the first thing thrown by the wayside. I’m looking forward to seeing how September’s goals work out for you.

    I always have lofty reading goals like yours and never accomplish them. But it looks like you spent a ton of time with family and friends…the books will always be there, but the people won’t!

    I should making reading a book a goal. I have a full Kindle and honestly haven’t read a book in years.

    Reading 4 books in a month when I was younger would have been cake but now it would be such a challenge!

    I love this idea of having monthly goals! Writing them down makes it more official too. I’d like to increase my blog traffic too. Blogging can get quite time consuming though x

    Goal setting is such a great way to accomplish things. I am a major list maker and just getting to where I can check something off motivates me. I love that you accomplished nearly all of your August goals – Way To Go! I need to add reading more onto my own list…I have been meaning to but like you I purchased it but still haven’t gotten there yet. Maybe we will both do better in September.

    I love the idea of setting monthly goals. I can;t believe it’s September already either (although am kind of excited about it as I love autumn!). You did so well on your August goals (I really need to reconnect with old friends – time passes so quickly and it’s so easy to go for weeks without any contact…), and best of luck with the new ones. I hope you have an amazing holiday too!

    well done on completing most of your goals. I haven’t read a book in months either so to read 4 would be impossible for me. I hope you meet it this moth xx

    You passed most of your goals for August. I need to improve my blog traffic. That is also my goal for September. Good luck on all this. I hope you meet all your goals, especially reading 4 books.

    This is such a great idea to keep you on track with your goals.

    I am too scared to look at all the goals I gave myself at the start of the year – I think I should really start making an effort in the home stretch.

    Good luck with reading 4 books! I always hope to read more books and then i get so distracted! you can do it!!
