I know a lot of bloggers like to do beginning of the month goals; I personally prefer end of the month reflections. So I want to take this time to discuss the progress I made this month.
This was a great month for Beauty Marks. I accomplished most of the goals I set forth. I wanted a more simplistic and lighter theme, I think my site is looking better, though I am making more layout changes, I want to increase readability. I may begin implementing ‘read more’ tags so that a wider range of articles are visible at a glance. My monthly goal was to post 12 times in August, 3 times a week, which I managed to do for the first time since starting this blogging adventure. I organized my menus, and categories. I’m beginning to have active readers, whom I so appreciative of. The one goal I did not accomplish this month was staying one week ahead in my planning. So that is something I want to continue working on in September, but I’m getting the hang of this whole planning thing. So it’s been a good “first” month for me. This is the new beginning of Beauty Marks and I am loving how things are panning out.
August was also a good month for me personally. I think my job hunt is finally coming to an end. I had an interview this week and things seem promising. I’m starting to get serious about my health and fitness. I’ve only been working out consistently for 3 days, but that is a record for me, and I actually see myself committing this time. Overall, I’ve been more organized. & I want to give some of the credit to this site. Sharing my journey with you all keeps me motivated because I don’t want to let you guys down, and I don’t want to fail in front of everyone, so sharing my honest progress with you all is keeping me on track, because I enjoy sharing good news, and I enjoy sending out the message that it’s possible to make these subtle life changes when you really want it. We are all every day people, and we have to stop letting life get in the way of our goals. I am very pleased with my progress thus far.
So this is going to be my last post of August, besides my Currently Obsessed segment coming up this Monday. I will be spending the remaining days getting ready for September. I already have a lot planned and I’m excited about sharing it all.
