I am so happy that June is finally over! I can’t believe that it felt like it went on for as long as it did. This is my first monthly goals post and I’m a little nervous about it because I’m so worried about setting myself for failure or not setting my sights high enough to begin with! I know that everyone feels like that sometimes, just paralyzed into not doing anything which is why I’m determined to make goals anyways! I have to keep myself accountable to this blog and this is one of ways of showing that.
I really don’t want to stretch myself too thin this month with most of my time being spent on building and
learning this blogging stuff but this month I want to read at least books. On the TBR this month is…
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Night circus by Erin Morgenstern
Cruel prince by Holly Black
This one is spent mostly on trying to improve my skin care, working out, and personal time with God.
Skin care: Try one new product and one new DIY.
Body: Workout at least 30 minutes 5 times a week and lose 2 inches(I try to focus on loosing inches instead of pounds, just a little tidbit for ya).
Personal time: Focus fifteen minutes of bible reading and meditation. I’d also like to memorize 5 new verses.
This one is my primary focus for the month because the blog is so new and I want to see dramatic growth this month. I’m basically starting with almost zeros all across the board as far as followers go on social media and subscribers.
I want to see 20% growth in my followers which would bring my followers from 40 to 48. Not a lot it seems but 20% is a big goal for someone with essentially no experience!
I want to see a 300% growth. Yes you read that right, 300% right now I’m only sitting on 10 consistent followers and I need to see better development than that since Instagram is a huge part of where my bookish audience comes from.
Subscribers and page views
For subscribers 5% and a 100% growth in everyday page views.
Fingers crossed! The goals above seem so daunting! It’s not like I’m not excited to work hard to reach these goals but I’m alsways so worried that I’m not doing it the “right” way which I’m definilty learning that there usually isn’t a “right way” but that doesn’t change the fact that I feel that I should have everything figured out this very second! Myself and any other new blogger, we just need to breathe and understand this will all come in good time. *Thumbs up!* Please leave me a comment or shoot me an email for what your goals are this month!
