I haven’t done an update on how my Goals for August 2018 went yet, so I thought I would do a quick post about how I have been getting on and talk about my Goals for September 2018.
Goals for September 2018 – And August Summary
I have now been doing my blog for 6 weeks. I am still enjoying the whole process, and am seeing more views a day, but do still want to increase these views, and build on this. The next step is to add a download and a printable whilst creating my email list. I want to be able to give my readers something for being loyal to my blog!
I have managed to do my 3 posts a week as I had planned. I’ve even thrown in the odd extra post. They haven’t been on my 3 planned topics though.
As I said in my goals for August, I do tend to stray from my intended topics of weight loss, stress busting and sewing. I have moved my topics onto frugal living, and motherhood, as I am realising these are also topics that I know and care about. I find writing posts that I have passion for much better than if I have to stick to topic. Though I have a lot of posts in my head that ARE on topic!
In August I have managed to double all my followers on social media pretty much on all platforms except my Facebook page. I need to do more with that page as I just haven’t used it. And I am trying to engage as much as I can in the time I have. It is a fine line when I have to spend time with my family.
My weight has not changed unfortunately. It’s been hard over summer, as my other half has been off work (he’s a teacher) and we have gone out more and eaten out more. I have really enjoyed my summer off. But my weight loss has halted. It may be easier once I am back into another routine.
My steps have also not really increased. I do need to work on this more.
Again, not really much progress here. I have cut out some of the dresses that I need to sew, but have done very little actual sewing. I do need to get the dresses made up so that I can photograph them before I can place them on Etsy. A real block of time is needed to do this.
My Goals for September 2018
- carry on doing 3 solid posts a week.
- improve and work on my Facebook page
- increase my social media following
- comment more on others posts
Weight loss goals
- To lose ate least half a stone in September, and increase my steps
- Stick more to the weight watchers plan and track on my phone
- Cut out a lot of the rubbish and drinking that I have been doing.
With Christmas in mind and Halloween I do need to be getting a wiggle on with sewing and putting on Etsy in the first week of September.
So – there are my Goals for September 2018 – and my August Summary. How have you been getting on with your August goals? I would love to hear your progress reports. Do comment below, or contact me on social media.
