Hello friends! Happy Monday, and welcome to a brand new week. Is that how you feel on Mondays too? I actually do, but by Wednesday, I’m kind of “over it” and ready for the weekend. ;) If you remember, at the beginning of January, I was excited about a new year stretched out all clean and full of potential. I posted about my goals for January, and hoped and prayed that I would have the self discipline to work steadily toward success.
Cuz I haven’t in the past. ;)
(check out our faux shiplap wall here!)
Let’s see how I did, shall we?
JANUARY GOAL #1–Create editorial calendar with scheduled posts for Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. For the month of January, include a Let’s Get To Know Each Other post weekly.
Result: Success!! Except for Sundays, because, unfortunately the link party I had joined as co-host is no longer. (insert sad face here) I have posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (check out Five Minute Fridays!) for the month of January, and each Monday was a Let’s Get To Know Each Other post.
JANUARY GOAL #2–Finish reading Building A Framework, by Abby Lawson, watch the tutorials and interviews, and either implement recommendations, or schedule their implementation for a date before February 29.
Result: Success!! I finished Abby’s book, and have implemented MOST of her amazingly helpful strategies. Building A Framework closes with Abby’s expertise related to product development (I have an idea!) and e-mail marketing (stay tuned for a minute to hear more about that).
****BEST NEWS EVERY RELATED TO GOAL #2–Abby has graciously agreed to give away a copy of her amazing e-book, Building A Framework, to one Reinvented reader!! If you are a blogger, I promise you that you need this book. If you would like to be a blogger…same. :) Just leave a comment on this post to enter.****
JANUARY GOAL #3–Create and post reader surveys for both Reinvented and RoadKill Rescue.
Result: Success!! Thank you so much to those who participated, your feedback was invaluable. BTW, the winner of the $25 Amazon gift card is Karen. If your name is Karen, please check your e-mail inbox! :))
I’m actually kind of amazed that the simple act of writing down my goals was so instrumental in maintaining focus and making progress.
So…what are my goals for February?
- Finish reading Kirsten’s book, Inbox of Opportunity.
- Using Kirsten’s book, create my newsletter, and send out the first edition.
- Create Pinterest strategy for new posts and implement.
There we go, folks. Thank you so much for reading! I’m so excited!!
