October Goals

September was my first month of sharing goals and making a plan to meet them. It was successful and really helped me focus on reading related goals

This month I need to focus on the goals I didn’t reach from September and add some new goals to make October successful.

Reading Goals

  • Commit more time to reading and less to sleeping/netflix/phone – The main goal for this month’s reading is to spend less time on my phone/netflix and more time reading. Although I am reading at a decent pace I have noticed I have been wasting a lot of time with netflix or napping, so I would like to commit more of this time to reading instead.

Blog Goals 

  • Stick to my schedule – This month I really need to focus on reaching my planned schedule of posts, last month I was very late posting most of them. I realize now the time and effort I need to commit so hopefully this month I can get on track

Bookstagram Goals

  • Interact more – Stories and interaction is my biggest focus. I need to be more social on my instagram page by posting stories and interacting with others through their posts.
  • Improve photography – Putting more time and effort into my pictures is very important to me this month. Since I have been rushed or late to post I end up using mediocre pictures and I want to address this ASAP.

Journal Goals

  • Worry less, journal more – This month I am going to focus on just adding more to my bullet journal. I am always too concerned with how artistic and perfect a spread looks and I end up waiting and waiting until I have enough time to do it good – which means I never do it. SO this month I want to stop being a perfectionist and just embrace using my bullet journal for whatever I want, whenever I need.

Writing Goals

  • Write down your thoughts – I am having trouble finding time and my spark for writing. October is a very busy month school wise, therefore I am going to keep it light and commit to writing down thoughts and ideas in a notebook.

September Goals

At the beginning of each month I have decided to set out a list of goals that involve reading, blogging, my bookstagram, journals and writing. I will outline those every month and then share my process with a wrap up at the end!


Reading Goals

  • Tackle more reads this month since August was dedicated to reading IT by Stephen King (TBR to be announced tomorrow).

Blog Goals

  • Increase my amount and frequency of my posts which will be achieved through my book reviews, TBRs, book hauls, discussions, pop up posts, and my newly introduced Me, Myself, & Mondays.

Bookstagram Goals

  • I have introduced a “theme” for the fall months, I am testing out how to take pictures and edit them in order to meet certain standards to fit my given theme
  • Communicate better with my followers through instagram stories

Journal Goals

  • Start faithfully using my planners and bullet journal because I tend to neglect it and then try to play catch up. I want to make it a daily ritual to journal/plan.

Writing Goals

  • Keep a notebook on hand in which I can write down any ideas that come to me
  • Possibly successfully write a short story

 

Here it is, my big September plans. I like to set goals and sometimes I go a little too far, so to start I have made realistic small, but signficant goals. Hopefully I can commit this month to achieving these and then aim higher in October!
