Happy April everyone! I know it's already a few days in, but I wanted to share my goals for this month. I've seen a few other bloggers with posts explaining their monthly goals and really liked seeing other blogger's perspectives on what they want to achieve. This may or may not become a monthly thing, but I wanted to give it a go and see what happens. Maybe you can relate to some of these goals, blogging or personal. I'd love to know some of your goals in the comments!
1. Reach 30k views this month
That's right I'm putting my numbers out here for you all to see! I know I don't get the most views and I know I'm far above some, but I seriously appreciate every single view I get. I've been hovering between 22-25k views these past few months and want to bump it up to 30k. If I implement some new techniques and focus a little more on post advertising/promotion I really think I can do it.
2. Post on Instagram at least 5 times a week
As much as I want to say post everyday, sometimes I'm just can't. I try to take as many pictures for Instagram as I can, but many times when I don't post it's either because a picture that I have is too similar to one I just posted or I didn't have enough time to take the pictures I wanted. I hope to be a little more prepared when it comes to Instagram this month.
3. Reach out to other bloggers more
I love the blogging community, and I have a few friends here and there, but I want to make more of an effort to get connected to people. Every other blogger I've met is so sweet and supportive, and I want to be that for others too! By the way if you're a blogger in the Bay Area or Orange County and want to hang out some time, let me know I would love to get to know you!
1. Commit to Whole 30
I'm doing a nutrition plan called Whole 30 during the month of April! More about this in Thursday's post, but I want to commit myself as best I can to the rules of the program.
2. Clean my room once a week
My room tends to get...explosive every once in a while. I came back from Spring Break and there were clothes on the floor, clothes on my desk, clothes on my chair, etc. Basically it was a pigsty and it shouldn't happen again. I'm making this one of my goals so that it won't get out of hand again. Hopefully if I do a tidying up at least once a week things will always be in order.
3. Be more social
I don't know if you guys know this, but I'm a complete homebody. I like to stay at home under my favorite blanket and would be happy never leaving my couch. Yes, it's ridiculous, but home is my happy place and getting too much social interaction always drains me. I don't need to go out partying or anything, but I want to make an effort to see my friends more. I see my roommates constantly, and while I love them, there are other friends that I don't get to see often enough. If I put in a little extra effort to be social (and make schedules work, Maci, why are you always so busy!?) then I can be sure to see everyone who I want to hang out with.
What are your goals for April?
