So it’s time for my monthly wrap-up! Who knew it was going to be May so soon? It completely snuck up on me, and unfortunately I didn’t really meet all my goals for April as a result.
To recap what I wanted to do, you can find the full post here.
I was able to control my spending on take-out even better this month, but pretty much all the other goals were either misses, or near-misses. I wasn’t able to get anything done in terms of knitting, and while I read more this month, I stalled out about 75% of the way through my second book. And keeping up with my PT exercises was kind of hit or miss. Better, but still not great.
So overall I really kind of missed the mark for April. But, with May now here I’m reinvigorated and motivated to really get some self-improvement done.
So here are the goals for this month:
1) Finish posting all the Disney photos on instagram.
The trip was more than three months ago now. Time to get them all up. If you want to follow along, go on and follow me @magpiemakingdo!
2) Be more active on the blog twitter.
I finally remembered my password for this, so I’m back in the tweeting game – and this time I want to be a little more proactive at networking and fostering bloggy relationships. So if you want to follow me there, head on over!
3) Spend no money on take out or fast food until my birthday week.
This means I have to make/bring every meal from home until the last week of May. Hopefully it’ll help me not only spend less money, but also eat healthier.
4) Post on the blog consistently every Tuesday and Thursday starting week 2.
I’ve had to put the “starting week two” caveat on this, mainly because, well, week one is already come and gone. Whoops.
5) Work on my blog photography.
This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I’ve had a DSLR for years at this point, and honestly? I still have no idea how to use it. Additionally, the blogging photography game has changed drastically since I first started a blog ohhhh eight thousand years ago in college. Flatlays? Backdrops? Props? All of these things weren’t really standard when I started my first blog. And while my photography has improved from that very beginning in my cramped, dark dorm room, stylistically I haven’t really changed adequately with the times. So I want to spend some time in May specifically devoted to that.
So here we go. Wish me luck, and we’ll check back in with these goals come June!
What are your goals for May?
