August goals

Hi everyone! 

I’m back!

I never meant to take such a long break from blogging – I never meant to take a break at all. But life got in the way and I was busier than I had initially thought I would be.

My PhD is almost over – and life has been crazy busy because of it. But I’ve also been having a lot of events going on. I went to Venice for my birthday (post and vlog coming soon!), Lisbon with my Grandma and Mom, Glastonbury Festival (multiple posts!) and Belgrade for a work conference.

But I’m now ready to be back, because I never wanted to be away in the first place. I’ve been wanting to be blogging for the whole time, as well as starting vlogging soon!

So without further ado, I’m hoping setting some goals will help me focus and keep up with a schedule.

Statistics

Of course statistics isn’t the most important thing. I hope to be more consistent, but I need to keep a more realistic schedule. For blogging, I will be posting once a week, but with the monthly goals (start of the month) and favourites (end of the month).

But regardless, I’m still hoping to reach some of these number goals!

Current

Goals

Twitter: 1592

Facebook: N/A

Instagram: 420

WordPress: 302

Pinterest: 1.2k monthly unique views

Twitter: 1750

Facebook: 100

Instagram: 500

WordPress: 320

Pinterest: 5k monthly unique views

I really hope to start vlogging too – I’ve set up my YouTube channel but yet to upload any videos! What do you guys think? I’m so excited but also terrified – so I’d love to know what you all think, and if you’ve got any words of advice.

I’m really hoping that these goals will truly once and for all kickstart my blogging journey again. Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. Please share your goals with me for this month – lets help each other!

See you in the next one!

    Welcome back!! These are solid goals. I’m kinda done with IG for right now I’m not focusing on it. I’m planning to start mb YouTube channel this month. I’m literally watching YouTube videos on how to edit on premiere pro right now. Starting a channel seems scary but before you know you’ll have 1k subscribers

      Thank you so much! Oh gosh me too instagram is SO hard! I will give you a follow – excited that someone else is starting off at the same time! I’m hoping to get my first video up this weekend 😳

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      I’m so glad! Me too, I need to re-read my own goals already! Its so hard to keep up what with every thing else life throws at us but setting goals and to-do lists really help me. Thank you so much, good luck to you too!

    Welcome back. I also started to vlog for my YouTube channel and I am really enjoying it. Not sure if I am going to do it every single day though. It can be a lot of work when your vlogs are pretty long.

    But the best advice I can give is that you should just have fun. Don’t focus on the numbers.

      Thank you so much! I will go and check out your channel and give you a follow! I can really use all the advice right now – there is so much to do! That is definitely a lot of work – filming and editing 1-2 days a week seems like a lot to me already 😖

    Good luck with your goals. For me, Instagram is a lost cause at the moment, but I`m trying to make the best of Twitter. These days it brought me so much traffic, and I want to be more involved in the community. Also going to focus on Pinterest more, as so many bloggers swear by it.

    • Rina Kay

      Thank you Carmen, you too! Same, I know how you feel about instagram and yet I keep going back there… Pinterest is definitely something I want to work on too! It sounds like if you can make it work it is amazing. Good luck to you too!
