My February Goals and A Giveaway!

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.  ;)

 

February Goals

(check out our faux shiplap wall here!)

Thanks to my friend Kirsten Thompson, of Sweet Tea & Saving Grace, and her Blogging With Intention Series, I learned how to write goals that I could actually achieve.

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?

  1. I have been thinking about starting a blog for months now, I have so much to say, I have been around the world with a military husband, have 2 sons and work in the healthcare arena. I would also like to talk about adoption, which I am. I don’t think we talk enough about that subject. Would love to own the book.

  2. Congrats on all your goals! I actually read to sample of Abby’s book and was thinking about buying it, so it would be awesome to win it! I cannot wait to see your first newsletter…that is also one of my goals as well. I am also trying to figure out a Pinterest strategy so I am looking forward to what you do!!!

  3. Glad to hear the SMART goal setting is working. I would love to hear more about blogging and am interested in the book.

  4. One of my goals in the first quarter of 2016 is to start a blog. I have had the idea for over a year now. This would be hugely helpful.
