2014 New Years Resolutions & Goals

Every year I try to make goals & resolutions and I often don’t achieve them due to lame excuses.  This year is the year I want to see change in my life.  I wanted to share my goals and resolutions with all of you as a form of accountability.  I am excited for this next year and can’t wait to see what it brings!

Blogging Goals & Resolutions:

  • To focus on my blog more than I ever have before.  I want to take it up a notch and really put in valuable time into my blog to create great content.
  • Publish 3-5 posts a week/Develop a blogging schedule that works (if you have any tips, please share!)
  • Continue to ‘beef up’ my Sponsorship Program.  I have made some big changes to the program and am excited to get it going.
  • Sponsor at least 2 other blogs a month.  As much as I want others to Sponsor my blog, I think it is important to support others as well.
  • Get to know some other bloggers and become friends. :) I love meeting new people!
  • Attend a blog conference!  These seem so fun! (any recommendations?)
  • To reach 1,000 followers on all social media sites. (FB, Twitter, IG, Pinterest, & Bloglovin’)
  • To get a new look/blog template for my blog.  (any recommendations?) I want to do a lot of research on different designers to find someone that will really get me and what I am looking for.

 

Personal Goals & Resolutions

  • Become more organized.  I’m not necessarily unorganized, but I know that there are some areas in my life that need to be more organized.
  • Read at least 2 books.
  • To not eat SO much junk food.  I am the junk food queen!
  • Go on at least 4 bigger trips (1 every 3 months or so) & make 2 of them places to visit family.
  • Exercise in some sort of capacity at least 3 days a week.
  • Be more selfless.
  • To keep financials under wraps and make over payments on my student loans.

What goals & resolutions do you have?

    I would LOVE to attend a blogging conference but goodness it isn’t cheap!

    • Samantha Curtis

      I completely agree! I really want to go to one too! They definitely can be pricey and I think it is a little scary because I don’t really know anyone in the blogging community that well so I would be going ‘by myself’. Happy New Year!
