Personal + Blogging Goals for 2018

Pretty soon we’ll be entering the 5th month of the year, but these are my personal and blogging goals for 2018!

My personal goals for the remainder of 2018 are:

  • To continue to explore and introduce my girls to all the world has to offer them
    • Through travel, dining, conferences designed for girls and/or young adults, etc.
  • To get more organized when it comes to preparing meals and dinner at home
    • I don’t know what it is, but every day I draw a blank, as to what I’m going to have for dinner. I usually don’t get home until evening and I’m pretty much drained from work and the travel time it takes to get home.
    • So, the goal is to find recipes that require less than five ingredients and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes.
  • To work on my fitness goals
    • I have a long list of fitness goals, but I’m convinced once I get my meals under control … I’ll be halfway there!
  • To continue to improve on my Spanish
    • I started learning Spanish when I was in high school, but that was like 20 years ago … Two years ago, I enrolled myself in the community college’s personal enrichment course for beginner and intermediate Spanish, just to get back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to have a full conversation with anyone, but it did inspire me to want to explore the language more. So, when I can, I use the Duolingo app and I also listen/watch YouTube videos on my breaks and in the car.
  • To create a financial budget that works and be able to stick to it
  • To try something new each month or do something that I love to do and haven’t done in awhile
    • For example, this month I went horseback riding for the first time in 9 years … and it brought back so many memories from my childhood and when my husband and I went horseback riding in Cancun, Mexico. The feeling was great, but I paid for it later, though – my muscles ached for a week! It was a group riding lesson that will be offered monthly at a nearby stable, so that gives me something to look forward to each month when I need to woosah!
  • To participate in more social events and meet new people
    • About six months ago, I joined a really cool social group on Facebook for women of all ages in my area. Every month they meet for Happy Hour, which gives the members a chance to meet up and form a connection. I figure, as the weather gets better, there will definitely be more to do in and around the area.

My blogging goals for the remainder of 2018 are:

  • To post new content weekly
    • I would like to post at least twice a week, let’s say Sunday and Wednesday .. but, if I can’t my secondary goal is to make sure I post new content on Sundays!
  • To work on all social media platforms attached to my blog
    • Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram
  • To follow my blog post planner and update, as needed
  • To take quality photos and videos
    • The video portion will come later, of course … but, it is a goal of mines!
  • To participate in blogging seminars and such, to improve my blog and blogging skills.
  • To grow my blog’s content and readership

  1. Thanks for sharing your blogging goals – I think I’m going to work on similar goals too (taking better photos and video, posting at least once/week, improve blogging skills, etc.) Good luck:)

    1. Thank you and good luck to you, as well! 😊 Blogging definitely isn’t an easy task, but you have to start somewhere … I’m taking baby steps and trying to get one goal down, before moving on to the next!

      1. Hi Jennifer, thanks for following a newbie like me. I’m still trying to learn more about blogging, and I’m glad you joined me on my journey. I’m taking baby steps too and trying to achieve one goal at a time. Keep it up! We can do this:)

  2. What I used to do when learning Spanish was watch Spanish-language films with English subtitles on so you can practice listening. Or read children´s books in Spanish, it´s actually quite fun!

    1. I’m going to have to check out the children’s books, because the novelas are too addicting, lol – Thanks for the suggestion! 😊
