Inside My Mind: Personal Goals v8

BLOGGER (2)Wow, has this week ever flown by! I blinked and the seven days were up!! Even though it went by super fast, I got a lot accomplished that I am happy to share with you today. This week, I wrapped up a summer internship, packed my sis for her freshmen year of university and worked away on upcoming posts! I am exhausted and glad to have a couple of days to relax before I have to trek back to school.

Last week, I set one goal for myself (in addition to 2 existing goals):

1. Get my September posts partially written – I actually knocked this one out of the park because I did get most of my outfit detail posts written for September (which will be released on Mondays!)…but there is still a lot of work to do for all of the other days. That is why I am keeping this one up here!

2. Be more active on neglected social media platforms – Should I just take this one off? Maybe I should…I have been so bad at progressing with this goal. I need to get into a routine of posting on Twitter. This one, I could use a little help with this one – if anyone has any tips…please leave them in the comments below!

2. Learn Mail Chimp – Nope…just nope. We’re going to move this one to the top of the list this week I think…you know…before school begins.

This week, I have one goal to add to my list of outstanding goals:

COMPLETE MY CURRENT GOALS. Yes…it has gotten to this point. I need to clear some of these outstanding goals of mine off this list! I have two weeks to do it. Wait, two weeks? Did I just say that? Yes I did. I am postponing next Sunday’s post and deferring it to the next week so that I can do a feature post of mine!! Maybe the extra week will push me to complete 1, 2 and 3! I sure hope so!!

Enjoy your week and make sure you check out tomorrow’s post as I have a special announcement to make for Pearls and Polkadots!


Inside My Mind: Personal Goals v7

BannerCan you believe that we are coming into the third week of August? It’s like I blinked and the summer ended. I am running around getting ready to go back to school, helping my sister get her things ready to begin here freshmen year at university – things are crazy. That doesn’t leave a ton of time for goal completing, now does it? Well you would think that…but I actually got some things accomplished this week! So let’s take a look back on last week’s goals…

Last week, I set one goal for myself (in addition to 2 existing goals):

1. Be more active on neglected social media platforms – Did I use Twitter? Yes. Did I check out Twitter Chats? Nope. So that is why I am keeping it on the list yet again. I mean, it’s not a terrible goal to continue to have, right? Especially if you are like me and don’t really use Twitter too much.

2. Learn Mail Chimp – I can honestly say that I actually have read a lot about Mail Chimp. The reason I haven’t crossed this one off my list yet, is because I still need to activate my newsletter feature/build it.. (oops). I am a slight perfectionist and this won’t be off my goals list until I can make sure that it is exactly how I want it to be!!

My Planner Series   So I wanted to get a head start on my planner series this week, and I did actually. I prepped my planner and began writing it out in draft posts!! I may have to push the series back a week, but you never know! I want my planner to be perfect (perfectionist, right?) before I show you all what it looks like!! However, this was a goal that I definitely accomplished!!

This week, I have one goal to add to my list of outstanding goals:

Get my September posts partially written: September is going to be a super busy month, and I don’t think I am going to have time to post every day if I have to write a new post every night. Between two jobs, dance, and the actual school work…things will get a tad hectic. Thank goodness for the scheduling tool, right? I hope this week I can get at least two weeks worth of posts/guest posts compiled so I can just schedule them up to fire off each day!September

I am only adding one goal for this week since I this week is already going to be nuts!! I want to make sure that all of my September posts get lined up and ready to go…and I need to be able to focus!!
