30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 8 – Short term goals for this month and why
I know the picture to the left are of my goals for the year, but I thought I’d share them anyway. Especially since my short-term and my long-term goals always have “No, absolutely, no running around naked”. It is something that I constantly have to remind myself…because if I didn’t, I’d be running around naked scaring the world on a daily basis. I just can’t help myself. 😉
In all seriousness, monthly goals are not something I often think about or map out for myself. In light of this I really had to sit down and think about this one. I know I always have things in mind that I’d like to get done within a certain timeframe, but I never really thought about them as goals…even though I guess they are.
I think my biggest goal for the month of June is to finish unpacking from the move. We have about 2/3rds of it done, but we still have a lot to go. I’d like to eventually find my new living room at some point this month. LOL Also, my main goal while doing this is to purge as much crap as I can and to put things away in an organized fashion. The other day my hubby just suggested we started throwing stuff wherever to get it unpacked and I yelled at him. I told him there was no way in hell that was going to happen because I am not going to have an unorganized and clutter house, like the old one. With our basement we have 2 1/2 times more room now for stuff…I’ll be damned if we are going to use all of it. LOL I’m determined that more room does not equal more stuff and I will take down anyone who tries to jam the house full of crap. 🙂
Another goal I have for this month is to continue blogging almost daily (only giving myself a break on the weekends, if that). I’m trying very hard to grow my blog and I know this is the best way to do that. Since I started actively blogging about mid-April, I’ve noticed a huge jump in the amount of readers that visit me daily. In fact, I’ve almost surpassed my total views from May and I’m only 13 days into June! I’m very proud of this and plan on continuing to work hard. Not only do I want to gain readers, but I also want to write about things that people will enjoy or even find helpful. I am grateful to each and every person who have taken the time to read my blog…we all have busy schedules, so it is a real honor when someone takes time out of their day to read my posts! In light of this, I want them to feel that they are reading something worthwhile and that they haven’t just wasted their time.
Last but not least I’m trying to get everything planned and gathered for a Natural Childbirth series that I plan on writing for the blog. I’m going to be including a few guest writers in this so I want to have everything ready to go so I can start posting the first week of July.
That’s pretty much it. Nothing too deep! LOL Do any of you have any short-term goals you’d like to share?
