Happy new month, it’s a new day and a new month and it’s so exciting, maybe because it’s also my brother’s birthday but then I mean we woke up feeling good, we have food to eat, we are healthy, we can walk, we can talk, the list goes on. There are a lot of things we should be grateful for, most of which are sometimes overlooked.
So it’s a new month, what are the things you planned out for this month, what are the things you want to do? Where do you want to go to this month?
Do you usually plan your day ahead? Do you write out what you need to get done?
I know the pandemic has really disrupted some things but still we can still get things done. I’d suggest writing your goals down for the month and breaking it to weekly and daily goals. Breaking it down makes it easier for us to get things done. We then have to allocate the time we want to spend working towards these goals.
My goal for the month is to work on my social media accounts. I just recently started learning about twitter and I’m enjoying it and hoping to gain more followers there and I enjoy engaging with the blogging and writing community there, they’re always so helpful and supportive. To grow social media accounts seems like a task sometimes but they are needed to really put our work out there and promote it.
Last month, there was a post I saw on twitter where people were commenting what they hoped to achieve that month and I participated in it. I found out that writing it down made me really work towards them. I commented that I wanted to grow my blog, Twitter and Instagram account to some certain numbers and I was able to achieve almost all of them except for my Instagram and that was because my account was blocked for some unknown reason. So writing down your goals and placing it where you can see it can really help you with working towards it. For me, last month I took a screenshot of the comment and viewed it frequently to see where I was, how far or how close I was to achieving the goal and to know what I needed to do to make it work. I was at two hundred followers in the beginning of the month of July and at the end of July I was at nine hundred followers, I’m still shocked by the growth even if it’s nothing grand because then I didn’t even know what I was doing or why I was getting followers. So this month my goal is to get up to 1.5k followers and possibly more. Growing my twitter account has also helped me in growing my blog since I get views through twitter. So be sure to check out my Twitter account and follow, I’d definitely follow you back.
For my Instagram, I’m currently at five hundred and sixty followers, it’s not my main account though, just the one I created recently for the purpose of this blog to post inspiring quotes and some blog post so if you’re interested in quotes on positivity, self love and personal development then the Instagram account is for you. I plan on growing it to seven hundred followers or maybe even one thousand if I’m lucky. I plan on changing my aesthetic and be consistent there because I rarely spend time on my Instagram these days because I’m promoting my blog post on Twitter. I want to post more sharable and valuable content and I hope it gets me the desired results.
I have a Facebook page too that I’d love to grow but I just haven’t wrapped my head about how to grow it or researched about it yet so I plan on doing that this month and also figure out Pinterest. Everywhere I check on how to get traffic to a blog Pinterest is always recommended so I’d really like to know what it’s all about and learn about it. If you have tips on how to grow on these platforms please share them with me.
So those are my goals for the month concerning social media, other things are to focus on myself and ways to become a better version of myself and learn different things through reading books and watching videos. I’ve found myself reading a lot of books and watching a lot of helpful videos during this period to help me become better or to learn something. Let me know the books you’ve been reading and the movies you’ve been watching.
Let me know what your monthly goals are in the comment section below and let’s interact. I love reading and replying comments and I want this blog to be as interactive as possible so let me know what you are up to this month.
This post is sort of an introduction to my next post which is how to set goals ,specifically monthly goals. I know I don’t normally post on Saturdays but I couldn’t resist, I wanted to wish you guys a happy new month and I’m hoping to start posting twice a week also so Saturday might just be the day. When I started writing this I just wanted to post a happy new month message with some quotes but I’ve already written something more tangible.
I hope you set your goals for the month and work towards them, don’t forget to let me know what you’d be up to and what your monthly goals are. Do have a blessed day and month. I hope you get to achieve everything you want to in this month and more. Stay well, stay safe and have a lovely day.
