As you are reading this, I am mostly likely in a car and on my way down to Tennessee (I live in Indiana), and while I'm down there, I am most likely going to complete a few things on my 30 by 30 list. Anyways, since it's the middle of the month, I have finally decided to make some goals...
Post more than once a week
I know I've been talking about for awhile, but here I am two years into blogging (on Friday) and honestly I have no drive for it anymore. Sure I have a ton of drafts sitting there, ready for finishing touches and the publish button to be clicked, but for some reason I keep adding to them or changing things and they never see the light of my readers *which is like five now*. So, my number one goal is to get my grove back. To set time everyday and actually follow through with it. To fall inlove with blogging once again. To sponsor some blogs and get my name back into the limelight. To post more.
*as I mentioned above, I am on vacay this week, but don't fret, I actually do have some posts scheduled
Take new profile pictures
Sure a selfie is good, but it's generic. It's a "hey, I was just too damn lazy to pull out my actual camera and do some picture taking" type of thing. And the picture just doesn't fit with where I am wanting to go with this thing.
Redo old blog posts
This one may take me a while, but I need to redo my oldies. After two years of blogging, some of the oldies just don't fit with my overall this is me any more. Just like the profile pictures.
Take some time and learn photoshop
Photoshop is a great tool for editing pictures, but I want to learn how to add awesome text like Canva does. Or I could just continue to use Canva? I'm not sure if this goal should even be on here now.
Spend more quality one on one time with my kid
Lately, we have been at my parent's house until it's time to go home and get ready for bed, then we go home, take showers, and go to bed. I have barely spent anytime doing puzzles, playing trains, building legos, etc with the little guy. I can blame it on the weather all I want, but it's really my fault. This month I am going to set up a bed time routine with him. A eat dinner, take a shower, and read a book bedtime routine. I am going to TAKE the time and enjoy the little moments with him.
Make a budget
Oh man, I suck at budgeting...
Experiment with my hair
I have been in a hair rut for a bit now. And on Saturday, I went and dyed it two shades darker- Check out my Insta for pics. But what I am talking about here is the fact that I am always doing the same hairstyles- either flat ironed straight with pinned back bangs or up in a pony tail. I need something more. Correction: I need something more that isn't time consuming in the morning because I really love my sleep.
Take more time for myself... and read more.
I've started a board on Pinterest detailing the books that I want to read this fall and I have to say that I'm pretty psyched to read them all- considering that I am in the middle of reading three of them...
Do you have any goals for this month?
