Just like that, it’s goodbye Summer.
Who can believe we’re about to enter September? It doesn’t seem right to me at all… March feels just like yesterday! This year hasn’t exactly been the best for anyone I think, so I suppose it’s not necessarily a bad thing that it’s flown by.
That being said, August seems to have been a busy month and so I thought now was a good time for some reflection before we enter my favourite season… Autumn.
What did I achieve in August?
Firstly, non-blogging related – Bought a new car – If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen my recent reel showing of the car that Dale and I have bought. We went for a Mini Countryman Sport and I love it! There are a lot of luxuries that I never knew I needed, like heated seats and Apple car play… but not only that, it’s a really sturdy car and I actually feel really safe and secure whilst driving. Writing this makes me feel like I should have written a full review!
Planned content for the rest of the year – turns out that coming in to Autumn inspires me and then I was already on a roll so carried on for Blogmas and up to the end of this year!
Managed to publish posts consistently all month – I have struggled with consistency from day one so any time I can keep up with posting regularly is an achievement to me. In August I have shared more of my first Trek America trip, a photo journal, a review of StitchFix and also 8 things to know before you get a puppy.
Reached over 100 followers on my blog and 2,600 on Instagram!
In fact, it’s a been one whole year of Watt The Blog!
When you break it down in to small acheivements like that, the year doesn’t seem so bad after all.
Moving forward in to the glorius Autumn, here are my blogging goals for the season:
Continue to post consistently and more often – I’m going to aim for twice a week in the run up to December, then ATTEMPT a daily Blogmas up to Christmas eve… wish me luck!
Stick to my content plan – it’s all very well making a plan for the rest of the year, but I need to actually stick to it…
Reach 200 followers on my blog – that one might be a bit of a stretch, but I can try!
Create a blogging Facebook page – I keep meaning to do this, but haven’t quite got that far yet.
I’m sending out optimism and good vibes in to the universe right now and looking forward to reflecting back on these goals later on in to Winter!
What are you goals for the coming months and what are you proud to have acheived in August? Let me know in the comments!
