Blog Goals

So I had this awesome post planned for today's Saw It Pinned It Did It link-up, but I totally forgot to take a picture of the final product. Total Fail. Y'all, this Working/Teaching/FRG'ing/ Dog owner thing is making me a bad blogger. In the spirit of being a better blogger, I have been thinking of some blog goals to shoot for while Lane is deployed. 

1. Do an outfit post 
This terrifies me. I don't claim to be any kind of fashionista, but I believe that is good to push yourself. Do something every day that scares you, right? 

2. Do a complete House tour. 
I partially want to do this because I need to take pictures for my family back home. This will probably be later in the summer when I have made more progress on my DIY projects. 

3. Reach 100 followers. 
Now, I am always amazed at these blogs that start on a Monday and have 500 followers on Friday. I haven't really focused on gaining followers (although those of y'all that do follow; I love ya). This seems like a manageable goal which will keep me focused on communicating with new commenters and participating in link-ups. 

4. Do more guest posting. 
Anyone looking for someone to guest post? 

5. Become more consistent. 
I feel like I fall back on link-ups for consistency. I love link-ups, especially when I am lacking in inspiration. However, I want to try to create more structure within my blog outside of link-ups. My weekly deployment check-ins are my first attempt at this. 

So now the most important part. What do y'all want to see on this little blog? Do you want more pictures of Asha (obviously this is a yes because she is adorable)? Do you want more army stuff? Anyone want a full post on financial aid for military spouses? Y'all rock my world so I would love to hear what you like. 


  1. Lovin' the list... putting things into goal and action-oriented item! Girl.... I say blog what your heart desires. Get out of your comfort zone and post some outfit posts!!! I recently have been getting into the swing of snapping self portraits, and it's been a blast ;)

  2. I am looking for a guest blogger or you can host a five away on my blog. Both will help with followers! You can contact me for more information! You hve some really great goals! It's crazy people really gain followers that fast! I'm no where near that but it all comes with patience right?

  3. Great goals! I'm taking a blogging hiatus (too much stress with our upcoming PCS back to the States and general life stress), but I'd love to have you post on my blog once I get back to it. I'll shoot you an e-mail when that time rolls around.

  4. I think that's a great list, and everything on there is very attainable!

  5. Hey girl, I'm coming over from H54F link up! I love how you have set goals for yourself. That's the best way to get anything done! This month (March) I will be doing a Spring Clean your closet theme, so if you clean out your closet or do something amazing with it, I'd be more than happy to let you guest post!
