September 2020 Goals And More

19:23

I can't believe it's nearly September already. I was going to publish this post on the 1st, but I'm too excited to get back to blogging so it's going up today instead. I decided to take a mini break from blogging a few weeks ago as I found I'd begun obsessively checking each blog post to make sure I'd written what I thought I'd written and that there were no typos or anything like that and as a result I was getting frustrated with blogging in general and it was becoming a bit of an anxiety-provoking experience for me. I never want to feel that way towards my blog as it's kinda my escape from the anxiety I experience in every day life, so I took some much needed time away from it and I've found I'm coming back to it with so many fresh ideas, it's great.

Anyway, August was quite an unproductive month for me. I set some goals at the start of this month and I only achieved one of them, which was to get to 225000 page views. Sure, I've been making more of an effort to get out the house more, which I still feel really uncomfortable and anxious doing, but I'm hoping if I keep at it, it'll fade in time. It was still a pretty unproductive month though and I hope to do more this month and make September much more fulfilling and exciting. 


Onto my goals for this month though:


Reach 235,000 all time page views:

My goal for this year is to reach 250,000 all time page views and so far I'm on track to do just that. In order to achieve this milestone though, I've got to try and reach around 7500 page views for this month. The past few months I've been averaging around 7500-8000, so it's perfectly do-able. In order to achieve this though, I'm going to promote my blog loads on Twitter, in comment threads and on Pinterest and then just hope for the best. 


Publish 3 Poems To My Blog:

I've been writing quite a bit of poetry over the past few weeks, and some of it I feel is decent enough to share on here. I'm hoping inspiration with hit me throughout September though and I'll have plenty more pieces of poetry to share in the coming weeks. The first poem this month will be up on Saturday the 5th September, so keep an eye out for that.


Read 2 Books:

I didn't read at all in August, which is a shame as I had some good books lined up in my Summer reading list, but we're fast approaching Autumn now and if I want to finish up my to-be-read list for the Summer then I've got to get a move on and read 2 books in September. 


So those are my goals for September, there are only a few of them as I don't want to overwhelm myself, but September for me is going to be all about moving forward and laying the foundations for what's to come. I began doing some design work for a side project I've got going on at the moment and although it's early days yet so I don't want to say anything in case it doesn't come to fruition, I am really excited about it, if I can just get over this blogging slump. 

Anyway, I'm going to end this blog post here as I've got a lot to say on various things and I don't want to make this blog post too long, so I'm going to end it here.
