September Blogging Goals

Today is the first day of September and with a new month comes new goals for the blog. I will revisit last month’s goals to see how I got on and then make new goals based on this and what I want to achieve this month.

August’s Goals
  • Post 2 outfit of the day’s (OOTD) – I have not managed to accomplish this at all. The plan was to take outfit photos in the garden, but after moving to the new house I saw that the garden wasn’t how I remembered it to be. This goal could have been achieved by simply taking photos inside the house so this is marked as a fail.
  • Post two posts a week – I managed 5 posts in total in August (including the original goals post) and managed to post twice in just one week out of four. This was also a fail but I think I really tried at this one so I’m not too unhappy about it.
  • Post three day trip posts – I have not been on any day trips this month so had nothing to post about. Hopefully that will change in September though so this will be an ongoing goal.
  • Post more nail art – I haven’t even painted my nails in the last month due to working 6 day weeks with food so this was a no go really. I still love nail art and do want to post more on my blog however this was a fail this month.

Looking back over these goals the only one I feel I even partly achieved was posting two posts a week and even then, I didn’t do as well as I thought I would. I had a lot of ideas for my blog throughout August (including my university mini-series), however somehow I did not find the time to update my blog or accomplish all that I wanted to.

With all this in mind, here are my goals for September:
September Goals

  • Post two posts a week – I feel that this is something I will be able to achieve with a little forward planning and good use of the schedule button!
  • Post two day trip posts – As we just discussed, this one was a bit of a fail last month so I’ve lowered the goal slightly and will start planning trips soon.
  • Post two more wish lists – Wish lists are some of my all-time favourite posts to read and I just love creating them myself. As part of my 101 in 1001 list I stated I wanted to post 10 more wish lists to my blog and September is the month to get this started.
  • Finish my university mini-series – This may seem a little late but I know some universities don’t start until October and I have a few posts in mind I want to get published. Part One can be found here and Part Two here
  • Comment on more blogs – This is something that has always been a goal. When I receive comments on my blog it makes me feel as if this has all been worthwhile and I’m sure other people feel the same so with that in mind, I aim to comment on 10 blogs this month.
This has been quite a long post this time but let’s see how I get on this month. I have one more goal than last month but I feel these may be more achievable. Do you set goals? What are your goals for September, both in blogging and other aspects of your life? Let me know in the comments section!
