April Goals // March Recap

April has always been my favorite month. It's finally warm enough to go outside in a tank top and shorts, all of the flowers are blooming, and it just so happens to be the month I celebrate my birthday (April 2nd, if you're curious). The month of March really went by quickly. I went on vacation with good friends, we worked a lot on our house, and I made a pretty big life decision, which I will talk about at a later date.



Here's what I hoped to accomplish in March:

1. Establish a cleaning schedule (for real). I'm just going to face it, me and schedules don't mix. I attempted to make a cleaning schedule and stick to it, but life usually got in the way. I am happy to report, however, that I did consistently do more chores during the week to free up our weekends, so I'll say this one is COMPLETE!

2. Paint the guest bedroom. We did not paint the blue room, but we DID rip out the carpet and paint the room that will become my husband's office. I'm going to go ahead and say COMPLETE on this one too, because really it was just my goal to do something with our spare rooms.

2. Schedule (some of my) social media posts. I started using Hootsuite last month and I really enjoy it. I won't say that I scheduled posts every day or even for every blog post, but I did use it fairly consistently to promote not only my blog, but some of my favorite bloggers/blog posts throughout the month. COMPLETE!

3. Have blogger collaborations. I totally dropped the ball on this one.

4. Save $2,000. COMPLETE!



April Goals:

Personal:
  1. Establish a gym v. running routine. Right now I kind of just run when I feel like it, but with two races coming up, I need to focus on endurance.
  2. Spend quality time with my husband, work on developing our love languages and improving our communication skills with each other.
Blogging/Social:
  1. Increase my instagram following and engagement. Since April 2015, my instagram account has doubled in followers, and I've done that all on my own! I want to continue to focus on posting quality photos, using relative hashtags, and engaging other accounts. My goal is to grow my account by 100 followers.
  2. Work on an editorial calendar that works for me. I attempted last month to make one, and it just didn't work out.
  3. Create and host a link up in the beginning of May. I know this is April, but in order for it to happen in May, I need to do all the planning in April.
What are your goals this month?

I need to make an April to do list too. I would love to have a cleaning routine. I do it all at once and usually because company is coming. Oops. Good luck crossing off your list!

Brita Long said...

My editorial calendar is a loose guideline. I frequently move posts around. It's mainly helpful because I can look at it when I feel uninspired, and have a topic already on hand to write. And if I don't feel like writing that topic, I can swap it out for another one! I use Google calendar since it's easy and free.

Happy April! And happy belated birthday, friend!

Ashley Lee said...

I should probably come up and stick to a cleaning schedule.. I feel like I am constantly cleaning.. but there are always messes! ha!

Tracy Walker said...

Great post! I'm working on my April goals too. Do you have a successful plan for saving? I so need to work on that. I blog over at blogbytracy.com about living the sweet life (food, life, faith). Would you be interested in collaborating by chance?

Shane Prather said...

I am working on instagram engagement as well, Hoping the changes don't hit us too hard. Good luck!

Whitney Alison said...

Good job on last months goals! I keep trying to create a cleaning schedule for the house for Boomer and I but...we keep failing. For April I really want to stick to my financial goals, and get back to blogging at least once or twice a week. I miss it.

That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can't afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also OK with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3 months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care of us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cleanable.

How to get your Ex Boyfriend back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that me and my ex-boyfriend are living together again.
I' m Mary from England, My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.
