Hey friends. The blog is officially a month old! I’ve worked so hard on it and its been an exciting, overwhelming, stressful, fun adventure! I can’t wait to see how it grows and develops over the next few months.

One thing I wanted to share on this blog was a goals series. I remember I used to see a lot of my favorite bloggers sharing their goals for the month and checking in on what happened last month. Since I didn’t really set June goals (at least on here),
Here’s what happened in June…
I started the blog and discussed the idea of living your best life on a budget.
My goals for July
Increase my page views. I got just over 400 page views this month, which I think is great – I think its obvious that more than just my mom is reading this. I’d like to get at least 1000 in July.
2 posts per week. I managed this for all of June, except the very last week. This week was a crazy one for me, and had I prewritten some posts it wouldn’t have been a problem. But I only had time to write one post so that’s what I did.
On that note, develop more of a blogging schedule and write more than a day or two ahead of time.
Increase my Instagram following. I’ve had Instagram since it was pretty new (I think my page goes back to 2012) but I can’t say I really started to utilize it until last year. I’ve grown a lot just since the beginning of the year, going from 300+ followers to almost 900. I’m proud of this and hope to continue to grow it, as I feel like its a mini blog itself. I’d like to try to hit 1000 followers this month.
Continue to work on the bedroom makeover. I managed to get a bag of clothes to the thrift store but I really need to continue on the decluttering. I’ve got a pretty clear vision for what I want design wise, I just need to get to the point when I can actually implement it. I also ordered a shelf. I know where I want it to go and what I want to put on it but again, I need to get some of the mess gone before I can hang it.
Less candy more vegetables. This one’s pretty self explanatory. I know its better to have goals with more tangible numbers, and while I could quantify this, I’m not really sure what’s realistic. Basically I eat too much candy most days, and I get maybe one vegetable serving a day (if that), so I just want to improve these numbers.
Workout twice a week. I used to always get to the gym two or three times a week but for the last year or so I’ve been lucky to make it once a week. So I’m going to try to go twice a week. It should be easy this week because I’m only working today and tomorrow, but I’ll have to really try to make it happen the rest of the month.
Have a great 4th of July. Its my favorite holiday so I’m hoping for a good one!
