New Year Goals

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post and my first post of 2020. I just would like to say happy new year to everyone. I hope you all had a great start to the new year and I hope you accomplish all your goals. For this year i am setting goals for myself and hopefully sticking to it. I wanted to share my list and talk about some goals I wanted to achieve for this year. I have done a couple posts in the past on different goals I’ve wanted to achieve. If you haven’t read any you can find these posts on my blog site. You can type in the search bar “goals”.

  • Gain traffic
  • Sticking to schedules
  • Staying up to date on social media posts
  • Pinterest
  • Improving my skills
Gain Traffic

Let’s face it, for some of us bloggers coming up with a marketing strategy for traffic comes easy. And for some (like me) becomes difficult. This year I’ve decided to put in more time on my blog when it comes to Pinterest and work harder in driving traffic to my page.

Sticking to schedule

One thing I really want to do, that’s always at the top of my list is sticking to my consistent schedule. Now I know I can’t get mad if I trail off. Being a mom of two a wife and a blogger is a hectic schedule. Sometimes my kids schedule just don’t fall in place with my blog schedule and posts go un typed or unscheduled. But this year I want maybe a little less of that. I want to stay consistent and organized, plan posts ahead type some up ahead so I can get more content out there. So far into 2020 I have not started this goal but here I am trying.

Staying up to date with social media

This goal kinda goes hand and hand with my goal of staying consistent. I feel like if everything isn’t staying consistent and am not posting then I won’t reach my amount of traffic I want. The most social media platform I usually fall off on random days are twitter. And this is because with Twitter you have to sit and read tweets and take time out your day to tweet. As a busy mom I don’t get much time to do this so I don’t bother to go on everyday. And for Instagram it’s the lack of finding what I want to post. Staying consistent with my colour feed making sure what I want to post goes with my feed. And to be honest it’s all hard lol.

Pinterest

Pinterest, the number one social media platform that every blogger is using. Also if you don’t have me yet on Pinterest please add me HERE. Now I am always trying to find time to piñon Pinterest. I love going on there for fashion inspiration or hairstyles for my girls, whenever I can grab my iPad am always pinning. But that hard thing is finding the right time to pin my content. Or even making the right blog graphics, and making sure you got a great photo. This year I want to actually sit and start making my Pinterest strategy. I never actually took the time to create one it was more when I got the time I’d just pin. But what are some strategies that worked for you all? Please let me know in the comments.

Improving Skills

I am always trying to improve my photography skills. Especially for Instagram or even if it is for any blog content. People are always attracted to a good photo. I have came a long way with this, at the start of my blog career my photos were pretty awful on my blog. But along the way I learned how to improve my skills. But hey that’s the way we can learn and get better. I really want to improve my Instagram content a lot and gain more engagement. Hopefully I can stick to it and actually do it this year.

Thanks everyone for reading today’s blog post. I hope some of my goals for this year helped you. What are some of your goals for this year? Please like, share and comment. I always love hearing your thoughts. Also if you haven’t read my latest posts please read HERE.

June Goals

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a great week. It’s the 5th of June and I am just now writing my June goals for the month, I have realized that I probably won’t have high expectations this month because of a lot going on. This month I am doing a lot of packing because I am getting ready to move, I am super excited for this move I am so ready to be leaving my apartment. I am ready to start a new chapter in my family life, also after this move I will be putting up more content and be even more consistent with my blog.

One of my goals are to consistently at least on my social media platforms. Especially Twitter and Instagram I want to increase my followings, be more engaging with my followers because before increasing numbers I at least want connections with my followers. My second goal is pretty similar to the first, I want to continue to improve my content with Instagram. I am always trying to put up the best quality of pictures on my instagram; one thing I believe in is if you don’t put out the best or least quality it can always lead to lack of following and engagement. I am always hearing this consistently when doing my research on social media containing being a blogger. My third and last goal is to work hard and increase my views on my blog, I feel like this will always be a goal every month for most bloggers I mean even if you got a thousand every month you want to push for two. Sometimes I feel like giving up on blogging but I remember it’s not about the numbers I started all this because I love it. Soon enough my numbers will grow, heck today I made it to more views ! I am getting somewhere and I feel proud of it.

And there you have it three of my big goals for the month of June, its always hard to keep up with blogging especially being a mom and a wife but I feel like setting goals for yourself every month helps motivate you even more. I hope this blog helps in some way, thank you all for reading, sorry if my blogs seem short I am trying to put out posts while dealing with a move and kids running around. There will be a post up Friday morning at 9am EST standard time so look out for that! Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you !

Fashion Motivation Quotes

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.”

Miuccia Prada

“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.”

Goodbye 2018

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! It’s crazy it’s the last day of 2018. It went by so fast I feel like it just zipped through, this year was a bitter-sweet year for me to be honest I can’t complain. Everything that happened made me better or just made me stronger, I am now so ready to bring in the new year and make new memories with my family. I am also excited to see what 2019 has in store for me I hope its more sweet than bitter.

A lot has happened to me in one year, a whole lot of emotions but of course am not going to get into everything. Here are my highlights of my year!

  1. My oldest daughter starting her last year of kindergarten – This was really emotionally for me because she is just not a baby anymore.
  2. Finding out I was Pregnant – Of course because this was the biggest surprise!
  3. The birth of my second daughter – This was of course the biggest, five whole years later another daughter. I will never of course forget those precious moments I experienced.
  4. Seeing my husband go back to school – This was a huge moment for me because he finally found what he loves doing and he took a huge leap and went back. Especially in an odd time because I was pregnant that moment and he is doing it all while being a father.
  5. Starting my blog – This was a total unexpected experience for me, from leaving a job I somewhat hated and one day picking up my laptop and finally starting a blog that I always wanted to do but I always procrastinated. But it just wasn’t the time and that day I picked up my laptop and did it was the right time.

I can’t not wait to embrace 2019 and see what it has in store, its crazy how the days are just flying by so fast. Now everyday we just have to soak in every last-minute before it just flashes before our eyes. 2018 has gone too fast for me but I would like to see what my next chapter holds, what is one of your biggest 2018 moments? Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you all! Thanks for reading!
