August Goals

This year seems to be running away, as it is time for a new monthly goals post. I enjoy writing these goal blog posts because I like to set goals and challenges. Setting goals motivates me and inspires me to work harder and develop in all areas of life and not just my blog.

This month I have decided to make small specific goals this month. As sometimes I am guilty of setting so many goals, putting too much pressure on myself and I loose myself a bit. So this month I am setting 3 social media targets.

Goals for August-

Reach 7,450 followers on Twitter

Reach 1,120 followers on my Blog

Reach 650 followers on Instagram 

I want to this month focus on building my social media. I want to meet new bloggers and read more content from new bloggers.

What are your goals for this month?

    I’m the same as you, I want to focus on my blog, Instagram and Twitter. I set my blog up a year ago and can’t lie, I pretty much neglected it as I felt a bit lost with it all. I’ve really knuckled down in the last 5 days with everything and the improvement I’ve seen is so encouraging! I hope you manage to reach your goals xx

      That’s great! Sometimes you do loose yourself with blogging. It can be so overwhelming. Keep at it, there are so many supportive people in the community to keep you going xx

    I have only recently started setting blogging goals (to include making a vision board) and it has been so helpful! Glad to see your success!

    Good luck with your goals! I really want to try doing this soon – I can see it really helps with the motivation. I’d love to try and grow my blog more, with my time off at the moment I want to try plan nail looks ready so I’m sorted for a while but need the motivation and inspiration for nail looks!

    I love that your goals are so focused this month – I’m sure that will make them completely achievable. I stopped setting goals for myself at the end of last year because I so rarely managed to meet them but perhaps setting smaller goals is the way forward. Food for thought, thank you for sharing! xx

      Yeah I was guilty of setting too many and stretching myself too thin. So keeping them small and focused this month. Thank you for reading xx

    Simple social media goals are always a great motivator! This month I’m hoping for 4000 on Twitter and 800 on Instagram (not sure if I’ll make that one) x

    I’m trying to get more followers as well. I just hate when people follow, then unfollow. So annoying

      It’s frustrating isn’t it! I use an unfollow app, to get those people out! Xx
