Reflection On July & Goals For August

July was a busy month for me personally and for my blog. For July I had set a goal that I would post consistently on my blog each week and I have achieved this, I am so happy and proud of myself. I have finally found my routine with my blog. I am wanting to continue with this goal this month.

In July I celebrated Bournemouth Pride, if you would like to read about my experience you can read my post here. I organised a party for my mum’s birthday and we celebrated.  I had a guest post from a great company all about stationery storage, which you can read here. I was really happy with the progress I made on my blog this month.

This August I want to:

  • Have all my content written and scheduled for August within the first week.
  • Reach out to two brands that I would like to work with.
  • Reach 11.2K on Twitter.
  • Eat better and cook more (as sometimes I can be quite lazy ha ha!)

I have a really great month planned especially as my little brother, my sister-in-law, niece and nephew are coming down to stay and the whole family have lots planned. I have really enjoyed planning this months blog content as well, so I hope you enjoy reading them. Also, it’s Summer and we’ve actually had some sun so far ha ha!

What was one of your favourite moments from July? What is one goal you have for August? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  1. We’re currently visiting family in Ontario, Canada but I’m really looking forward to having a routine/schedule again. July was very busy as well as I neglected my studies (an unintentional 3-week break…. relatable?)

    I’ve also gained weight in July which I’m not proud of so I plan to work out for the first time ever when I get back. When January 2020 comes around, I want to be both emotionally and physically stronger. Finally, I plan to schedule some blog posts and go back to posting more frequently. By January, I won’t have this luxury so it would be nice to post what I can to add more value for my readers.

    Having July reflections and goals for August is a really good thing. I’m sure you will reach your goals this month! 😊💕

  2. I have just reached on of my goals. I found out yesterday I get to write a history article for the e-newsletter for the history society in my town. I am so excited and already started writing it today.

    I have been able to get back into beta reading last month. I enjoyed that. I haven’t been contacted by more writers since then sadly. But it does give me more time to focus on my blog again.

  3. Great goals Lauren! I particularly like the first two goals the most because I’m not reaching out to brands enough like I should. I also am really bad with writing blog posts ahead of time! Having everything ready within the first week of the month really gives you time to relax a bit and maybe even plan for September if you wanted to! I hope you are able to accomplish them all!

  4. Congratulations on achieving your month goals! Having monthly goals instead of the very generic new years resolutions is so helpful!
    My biggest goal this month is to take big steps towards launching my own business. I really can’t wait to see it function.
    My best wishes for this wonderful month 🙂



  5. Good luck with all of your goals for August! Love that you have quantitative goals so you can measure your progress. Sounds like you have a lot going on in the next few weeks! It is so cool that you got to celebrate Bournemouth Pride last month. Sending you lots of love!
