Blogging Goals for 2015
1) Become more organized (in life and with blogging)
This is something that I struggle with every day. I am awful with time management. All throughout high school and college I used a day planner. I think it has something to do with physically writing things done and then getting the satisfaction of scratching through them when I completed the homework or assignment.
2) Actually use my blogging planner
I found a few blogging planners that I liked and I printed them off and even put them in a fancy notebook with dividers…and the notebook is still where I left it…on the desk in my office, no where in sight since I am sitting in the living room in my new comfy chair 🙂
3) Take better photos for my blog posts
That’s why I am taking advantage of this free high-definition stock photo from https://unsplash.com. I do not have a DSLR or a point and shoot camera so all of the pictures that I use are either from my Samsung galaxy 5 or from my iPad mini.
4) Monetize my blog
I already have some affiliate links and photos up, but I want to start using them to their fullest potential. I would love to make enough money to pay for some of the food that I use for recipes or enough to get this camera.
5) Two Thousand Twitter Followers
6) One Thousand Pinterest Follower
Please follow me on Pinterest
7) One Thousand Instagram Followers
Please follow me on Instagram
8) One Thousand Facebook likes
9) Make a Fitness eBook
Check out my protein bar eBook
10) Have my blog professionally designed (logos, headers, buttons, etc)
This is a must! I currently use one of the free themes on WordPress with its stock header. I want a nice clean and professional looking blog.
1) Travel more (visit New York, California or Washington state)
I really want to visit Europe and Australia, but I know that those are not in my near future, so for now I will set my goals on more realistic places.
2) Read more books
I miss reading. In college we were forced to read A LOT, but I still love to read for enjoyment. My favorite author is Janet Evanovich. Her books are hilarious! I seriously Laugh Out Load.
3) Become more flexible/Do more yoga
I used to do Bikram Yoga a couple of times a week and I had to stop because it was getting expense. At $16 dollars a class, it adds up quick. YouTube and Hulu have a lot of different yoga videos so I think I will start off there.
4) Run a half marathon
But first I will have to be able to run a 5K LOL. I am a heavy weight lifting kind of girl and not a cardio bunny any more.
5) Save Money
6) Have a professional fitness shoot
And get in the best shape of my life!
7) Expand my consulting business
Currently I only promote on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. But I would love to start promoting more at local gyms, doctor offices and spas.
9) Spend more time with my family
10) Be more spontaneous
