Goal Setting for Greatness

Welcome to my weekly goal setting linky. Thank you to everyone who joined in last week; for those who didn’t, here’s how it works. You can set yourself some goals, and join up to the linky – then we all leave positive and supportive comments on each other’s posts. Next week, we all come back and review how we did with this week’s goals, and then set some more.

I also set myself monthly goals, which you are of course welcome to join in with.

The only rules are that you must visit the two people directly ahead of you, and leave a supportive comment on their blog. There’s also a badge at the bottom of the page to add to your post.


Goals for July: An Update

Increase my Income by 5%  – I was going to say 10%, but I’d rather make an achievable goal and nail it. I have lots of ideas up my sleeve, and more time for work than I have over the last six months so I’m confident I can drum up some more work.

Work on the Background of the Blog – I feel like now I’m in a routine with regard to posting, but there are lots of things I’d like to sort out with regard to the nuts and bolts of it. Things like sorting the categories and editing older posts which haven’t been touched since I moved over to self-hosted in October last year. Time to get going!

Write an E-Book – at the beginning of this year I wrote a list of blogging goals for the year and publishing an e book was on that list. I’ve done very little towards achieving that goal, despite the fact I’ve had several ideas buzzing about my head. July marks the start of the second half of the year, so it’s time to pull my socks up and get on with it!



Last Week’s Weekly Goals

Get up to date with my work – I’m almost there with this, though an enforced day in bed last week through feeling rubbish certainly didn’t help!

Nail the blog comments – I almost did this, but not quite. There were a couple of linkys I didn’t join in with this week, because I didn’t have time to comment etc. For the most part though, I did ok.

Prioritise and work on one e-book – this has completely not happened. With everything else that’s been going on, I didn’t even touch the e-book last week. Must get back to it this week.

This week’s goals

Do one “extra” job – Several clients lately have asked me to do one-off jobs for them, without any sort of deadline. Because there’s no deadline, I’ve sort of put them in a pile for “when I’ve got this stuff sorted” but I think there’s a real danger I just won’t ever start on them if I don’t make it one of my weekly goals!
Work on evergreen posts – A lot of the things I post on this blog are relevant only to the time in which they are posted (this post being a prime example) but there is also a fair amount of evergreen content on here. The other week, I tweeted a two-year-old post out, it was picked up by Mumsnet and put on their front page, and then went a bit crazy on Facebook as well. I want to make a list of my evergreen content and share it on social media in a rotation.
Prioritise and work on one e-book – this is a roll over from last week!

This linky will be live until Wednesday evening (BST), so feel free to add a post later in the week if you’ve not got round to setting any goals yet.
