Monthly Intentions | September Goals

Flower Vase


Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be part of The Blogger Goal Collaboration once again this month! I love reading other bloggers’ goals and hold myself accountable for these intentions. If you would like to be part of the link up, contact Angela from The Clutter Box

I can't believe we are almost halfway through September! I feel like I was just writing my august goals yesterday, but of course so much time has passed and it's now time to see how I did.

August Recap

  • Post more than once a week
I'm really disappointed at how I did with this goal. I started out alright, then as the weeks went by, I just didn't produce enough posts. 

  • Check out other blogs and leave meaningful comments.
I think I did okay with this. I didn't read as much blogs as before but the ones I did read, I made sure to leave meaningful comments! 

  • Work on the behind-the-scenes of the blog!
This was super hard and sometimes frustrating but I’m really proud of all the things I was able to do. I'm thinking of building my own theme from scratch! It obviously won't happen this month or the month after that, but I really want to do this. We'll see how that goes.

  • Post consistently on social media, especially Instagram.
I'm not really sure how I did here. I'm always running out of things to post so I basically post every time I do have something to post. 

  • Connect with more bloggers.
I talked to a lot of bloggers during twitter chats and it was so fun! Gold star for me on this one.

  • I want to have a personal signature to put at the end of my post.
Okay, so this obviously did not happen. I did try to make one but I ended up not liking it and I just didn't use it. If you know a website where I can make a signature to add at the end of my blog posts, please leave in the comments!

  • Share other bloggers' posts!
I have been sharing blogger's posts a lot on my twitter. Mostly by retweeting, so I think this was a success.

August Highs and Lows

Highs
  • My august stats were on point! The back to school series I did was really successful and it was honestly the highlight of my month.
  • I talked to a lot of bloggers and it was so nice!
  • I started an email list and I got an OK amount of subscribers for a beginner.
Lows
  • I didn't post as much as I wanted to! *Major sad face*
  • Not making my personal signature. I really need to get one. I feel like my posts are just meh without one.

September Goals

  • Post twice a week
This obviously didn't work out last month, but I’m going to keep trying! I wish I could be one of those bloggers who schedule a month's content in advance! I literally write my posts maybe two days from when I’m supposed to publish, sometimes the night before! I really need to get it together.

  • Keep being active on Twitter and Instagram
I post on twitter every day, which is good but I definitely need to up my Instagram game.

  • Make a signature to add at the end of my posts

  • Learn more about Pinterest and get the most out of it
Right now I’m getting a steady amount of followers and I was freaking out when this post got over one thousand repins! This really encouraged me to learn more about Pinterest

  5. Building your theme from scratch... wow! That can be a long process. I wish you well and lots of coffee if needed to get through the coding process.

    Setting up a posting schedule is fantastic!! I'm always all for it - even if I haven't had the time to follow it myself.

    Congrats on the repinning! Love Pinterest.

    Hope that the rest of the month is good to you and can't wait to read how you crushed this months goals.
