August Goals

Ah, August. I can’t believe it’s here already. The last month before school starts again. In July, my goals were to support other bloggers and try to post 3 blogs a week. I did support other bloggers (not as much as I wanted to but as much as I could), I did not post 3 blogs a week.

The summer is a little tough for me. My job has Summer Fridays, a half day every Friday for the summer. I took the rest of the day off so I am off every Friday. I love it. I get to do my grocery shopping early, I meet my husband for lunch with the kids. And then I take the kids out after to do something fun. Bowling, the aquarium, the beach or park… Something to be out. Then we go home and swim in our new mini pool and I cook dinner. It’s just an extended weekend and I changed my mind about 3 blogs a week. 2 is good for now. I really enjoy that extra day to hang out with my kids and just relax. So, I really haven’t tried that hard to post 3 blogs a week. I think I did once and the other weeks I managed 2. It’s whatever.

I’m not mad at myself. I am happy that I am not forcing it.

So I am going to adjust my August goal. Continue to support other bloggers. Aim for 2 blog posts a week. That’s it because this is going to be another slower month. We have a vacation for a week coming up. I will not be posting at all that week. I will be putting my phone down and relaxing with family and friends. We’re going to Williamsburg, VA to explore this time. My other friend is getting married in November so I have a bridal shower, and book club. Plus, I need to take the kids and my niece back to school shopping. It’s going to be a busy month, but a fun month.ย  I still can’t believe that it’s already August.
What about you? What are your goals? How’s your August look?

  1. August is a bit slow on the uptake over here. I kinda want to be โ€œon itโ€ but I am more off it I have to say. Hoping some inspiration and motivation comes my way soon. Well done on your achievements thus far. Hereโ€™s to the rest of August ๐Ÿ’–

  2. Wishing you the best on these goals! These types of posts are my favorite and I find them to be inspiring. I am working on finishing 2 e-courses and stay consistent with publishing posts.

  3. My goal for August is #selfcare to prep for the #backtoschool chaos of September. On my to do list is a facial, mani/pedi and 90 minute massage ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  4. I love that your goals include slowing down and switching off to spend time with your family <3

    My August goals are all pretty boring, SEO optimising old posts to bring up DA etc although I've just suddenly realised that I need to start on recipe development for September because I run out of my Foodie Friday recipes at the end of this month :-O

    1. Those things are important though. Haha! I have no idea how to do either of those things. I need to start reading a little more about it. ๐Ÿ˜ I canโ€™t wait for more recipes!!!

  5. As women we do so much and try to be there for everyone, including ourselves. Just stay focused and you will meet those goals. I have a few for August and one is sticking to my lifestyle change….don’t know how that will be but I’m going to try!

  6. Hiya! Thanks for the read ^-^

    I hadn’t really thought about August goals – I appreciate the prompt!

    My goal is to post at least 2-3 week at, and build up a reasonable following (my blog is only quite new!). I think for August I’ll aim for 15-20 followers <3

    Happy blogging!!

  7. Seems like your a busy bee this month. My goals for this month is to support other bloggers by reading their work and leaving comments behind more often. And taking care of me.

  8. Good luck with your monthly goals! I’ve got a lot of ‘life admin’ stuff to finish this month, including painting and assembling a LOT of furniture for my new flat haha. Fingers crossed I can get it all finished on time! xx

  9. Good luck with those goals! I too have started posting only two blog posts a week. I used to post up to four but with recent jobs I don’t have as much time as I would like to spend on my blog. Thanks for sharing!
