Goals for 2016

Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to a great 2016. At the beginning of the new year, I like to sit down and think about what I want to accomplish for the year. Not just a resolution that will probably be forgotten in a month, but goals that will help me on the path to where I want to be at the end of the year.

  • Blogging Goals
  1. Connect with other creative bloggers to find a group to do challenges with, giveaways, and help each other grow.
  2. Increase monthly page views to be consistently 5,000+ - post quality content on a more regular basis and utilize blogging groups
  3. Increase sponsored posts throughout the year
  4. Interact with my readers on a more personal level - QOTD on Facebook, behind the scenes photos on Instagram, small giveaways, personal posts

  • Personal Goals
  1. Be more organized - craft supplies and paperwork
  2. Be present more often when spending time with my family - not multitasking
  3. Teach my girls to crochet, bake, cross-stitch
  4. Set a monthly budget - evaluate every 3 months

  • Education Goals
  1. Read at least one new book each month - mix of fiction and non-fiction
  2. Take an online course to help out with my blogging - photography, coding, building my blog
  3. Attend a conference where I can increase my learning
  4. Take a community education class - offered through the school district or the local college

I have written these goals at the beginning of my planner and added notes on how I will accomplish my goals. Here's looking forward to a new year full of possibilities!


  1. Great goals!!! I especially love the personal goal; so important!

    1. Thanks Kim! I could have added many more, but wanted to start out with 4 for each. If I do well, I may add more during the year.
