I’ve completed my first month of blogging! While I didn’t post as much as I would have liked, I learned new things about blogging and can’t wait to put them into practice.
Moving on, August is finally here and that means 2 things:
- Summer is well and truly here but also, autumn is close and it’s almost time for dark nights and cosy jumpers.
- My birthday is this month, I turn 23 on the 28th and I’m gonna PARTAAAY (read: eat food and watch Netflix with my dogs)
I thought I would start the month off right by setting a few goals for myself. A good way to know that you’re still moving forward even on a bad day, is to set goals for you to see your progress. For you to see that you’re not wasting your time and your efforts are worth it. Here are a few of mine:
Post 3-4 times a week
I originally wanted to do a blog-post-a-day challenge but I gathered I’m not experienced enough for this (the future, maybe?!) So now the plan is to post every other day, that way I have enough time to produce good content and really get into the swing of blogging.
Hit over 150 views on my blog and 20 followers
My blog is still relatively small, and by small I mean, tiny. Hopefully, this is a realistic goal that I can reach. Goals, no matter how small, are still goals and each one should be celebrated. So, that’s my blog goal for this month!
Improve my photography skills
Photography is something I’m still coming to grips with, I have recently bought a few things like phone lenses, a light reflector etc. that will help me create the best photos that I can, with practice of course.
Learn how to create a halo smokey eye
My makeup challenge this month is to finally crack the halo smokey eye! Since it’s my birthday at the end of the month, I’m going to be celebrating in some way and I’d like to wear this look and be #servinglewks.
So that’s it! Those are my goals this month, what are your goals for August? Are you planning on learning something new, or something simple such as taking a walk everyday? Let me know in the comments below!
