November Goals

I can't believe it's already November. Where is the time going? In just a few short weeks I'll be in DC celebrating Thanksgiving with my brother and his fiance, then I'm visiting a friend in Philadelphia for a quick weekend trip and next I'll be off to Spain for Christmas! But before I get caught up in all this traveling, I wanted to set some time aside to talk about my goals for the month. 

Having written goals is a great way to look back and see where you netted out each month. I try to set attainable goals, rather than the one's that I'm probably not going to achieve such as marrying George Clooney (dammit Amal, I was so close!). So before we jump into December, which I'm sure will come just as quick, here are some things I'll be looking to achieve this November.


Build Social Following // Since I've started blogging again I've tried to focus on building my social platforms. My main goal these past few months has been Instagram. I've joined pods and started using a lot more hashtags to engage with new readers. One thing I've noticed that I'm not a huge fan of is when people follow you & then unfollow you within 24 hours if you don't follow them back. Whenever I follow people it's because I love their content they're producing, not because I simply want the follow back. 

I would also love to break the 500 likes on my Facebook page this month. I'm only 55 likes away so I would really appreciate it if you wanted to connect with me on Facebook! 

Blog Twice a Week // I'm pretty proud of myself for blogging 1-2 times a week. I think it's important to be consistent so when readers come to my page it's not the same post they just read. Even when I've had writer's block I look for ways to publish content. I recently refreshed an older post on ways you know you're a blogger when I was feeling stumped. It's important to me to continue to write because it's a great outlet to get that creativity flowing and I truly love it.

Collaborate // When I first started blogging a little over 2 years ago one of my favorite parts was collaborating with other bloggers. Unfortunately, since I've been so busy with working & simply writing and scheduling content, I've been slacking on actually connecting with others. So for November I would love to collaborate with another blogger on a post or project. Feel free to contact me if you have any ideas!


Family Time // One of the things that I constantly berate myself for is not spending enough time with my extended family. I see my parents & even my brother who lives in another state pretty frequently but I never seem to find the time to connect with other family members. So for this month I'm going to try to better about calling them at least bi-weekly to show that they're important to me. 

Workout Once a Week // You might think going to the gym once a week is such a minuscule goal, but for me, it's an undertaking. Ever since I started on this journey of living a healthier lifestyle I've focused more efforts on my eating then physical activity. Well, for November I'm hoping this changes. I have a co-worker who's also trying to get back into the swing of things so we've tasked ourselves with working out at least once a week. Wish me luck - I'll need it!

2017 Travel // Now that it's almost the end of the year I really need to make some moves on my 2017 travel plans. I pretty much have all the trips planned in my head but I need to book my flight for the Dominican Republic in February and research a girls trip to Las Vegas and Peru. As soon as I have one trip planned out I'm always looking for the next adventure!

Now let's hear from YOU! Share in the comments below some of your goals for November!
