July Goals

3 years ago

It's that time of month again: the beginning.  My favorite part.  And that means time to reflect on last month, and look forward to this new one.
Reflecting on June: She is Fierce
Somehow, June was a pretty big month for She is Fierce.  This little space experienced some pretty big growth in social media, a result I think of both my increased social media use and sponsorships.  I've also implemented blog sponsorships, and have a few beautiful little spaces featured over on the left there.  In the last week, I've started an editorial calendar, and have the next six weeks planned out for this space (now I just need to actually write the posts).  I love how much this space is growing and changing, and I can't wait to see what July brings!

Reflecting on June: Life

This month has brought a couple changes to my real life as well, not the least of which is a new job that I absolutely love! Early in the month, I learned that I'd gotten an interview at a local law firm and starting about three weeks ago, I started my first 9 to 5 job.

July Goals

// Start a budget: I've been saying for months (okay, years) that I need to start a personal budget, but I never do because, well, I'm lazy.  I'd like to start putting money into savings each month though (you know, for the ever-looming student loans), and I think this is probably the easiest way to do that.

// Read 3 books: I love reading, and have a ridiculously long list of books I want to read.  I never set aside the time to do it though, and this month I want to work on making sure I do.  

// My Bookshelf: On that same note, I'd like to set up a series on this blog called My Bookshelf.  My plan is to write book suggestions, reviews, takeaways...anything related to books I've read or want to read.  Do you have any types of posts you'd like to see in this series?

// Figure out Google+: For the past month or so, I've been using Google+, but only really in the sense of linking to my blog each day.  I know there's more on there, and that it is a huge resource, but I just don't understand any of it.  This month, I'm going to learn more about Google+!

// Complete the A Beautiful Mess design course: I started this course a couple weeks ago, but haven't had a lot of time to devote to it.  It's a great course though, and I really want to learn more about design and HTML.  

// Yoga: I've done yoga off and on for years, but this month I'd like to start making it a daily practice.  There are so many benefits to yoga, and it's something I'd really like to get better at.

// Work on Improving She is Fierce: And this is where you can help me! I've got plenty of ideas for this space, but I need your input to - what makes you read She is Fierce, and what would you like to see more of here?  I'd love if you could take thissuper short survey for me!
