It’s that time of year where you reflect on the year and set your goals for the new year ahead. I’ve asked a few people this week what their new years resolutions are and they’ve all said they’re not setting any. They all said they set them but gave up.
I set myself 3 goals for 2018:
- Lose 3 stone
- Continue to build blog and post twice a week
- Save £2000
Did I achieve them? Let’s see.
Lose 3 stone
UPDATE: Weight loss can be challenging and you have to stay dedicated even when it becomes monotonous. I didn’t get into the right frame of mind this year so didn’t achieve this goal. It’s still a work in progress and I will get there.
Build blog and post twice a week
UPDATE: I started off well at the start of the year then by March I didn’t post anything. I got back into the swing of things in November by redesigning the blog. It just shows how time can just pass you and nothing is accomplished. After my birthday I decided to stop procrastinating and get into a routine of posting twice a week. I’ve set time in my calendar twice a week to focus on my blog which has helped tremendously. I really enjoy blogging so I want to continue to grow the blog and improve in 2019.
Please see 2018 stats below:
Top countries to view posts:
- UK 625
- USA 143
- India 29
Other countries include Germany, Australia and Trinidad and Tobago. It’s amazing that my blog has been read all over the world and I’m grateful. Thanks readers.
My aim for 2019 is to double these stats.
UPDATE: I achieved my goal and saved £2000. It takes time but I’m getting there with my budget using YNAB. YNAB is a great budgeting tool that allows you to take control of your budget. It’s so great to watch my savings grow. Check out YNAB here.
For 2019, I have set myself some goals and jotted them down in my bullet journal (check out my blog post about Bullet Journalling). I will post the results this time next year.
