Things To Work On

Hey there lovelies! I’ve been brain storming and thinking about all of the little things I want to work on- personal goals, surrounding the blog, Nate & I, our home, etc! Feel free to leave feedback. I welcome it, of course.

++The Blog & Social-Media
1. Comment more on other blogs.
2. Consistently comment on my top reads vs. thinking I have nothing to contribute or that the blogger gets so many comments already that mine wont matter.
3. Participate in Fill in the Blank Fridays
4. Do my first giveaway- any suggestions?
5. Purchase sponsorship from a favorite blogger to gain some readership- but which?
6. Start accepting sponsorship of my own after gaining at least 100 readers via Google Connect!
7. Look for and contact possible sponsors that I’d be interested in working with.
8. Ask permission of local business’ if I may take photos of their establishment and write about them on my blog.
9. Print Moo Cards to have on hand when inquiring if I may take photos of business’ or people.

++Personal Goals
0. Attend church every Sunday.
1. Become more organized.
2. Find an easy to maintain “work out” or a small activity I can start to do every day that I wont put off.
3. Work on putting my tattoo ideas into visual reality.
4. Maintain my friendships back home outside of Facebook – CALL PEOPLE.
5. Start a couponing system, know what coupons we have, what days are “double days” at the store, etc.
6. Open my cookbooks- cook for fun!
7. Pick up my guitar at least 3 times a week and use online tutorials. (Know of any?)

++Nate & I- Marriage and Fun
1. Take a trip once a month to new places in our home state (yes, like Tieka and her Husband). If, you know, gas ever stops going up.
2. Work on little home projects together.
3. Go out to breakfast before work.
4. Participate in a new activity together- dancing lessons, learning to play instruments together, planting a garden.

++In The Home
1. Print wedding photos for our scrapbook and album. Purchase album!
2. Buy large and small frames for downstairs wall collage.
3. Pick and print photos in those sizes.
4. Sand down upstairs dresser, paint a bright color, and attach new hardware.
5. Visit yard sales in search of some main furniture pieces we’re still lacking.
6. Pick paint color for focal TV wall and left entry wall downstairs. Or possibly a fun wallpaper for the entry wall that will tie into the focal wall!
7. Choose flowers for planting.
8. Plant my cilantro plant.
9. Figure out where we want to plant our garden.

Do you have lists similar to mine? I am crazy about making lists and love the feeling I get after I compile all of my thoughts into an organized system like this. Now- to execute! I’m already well on my way with some of these- just gotta keep it up! My next list? My packing list for Chicago! We leave on the 5th and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve never even ridden in a Taxi, ya’ll. It’s serious like that. Small town girl meets big city, seriously. My eyes are going to be like that of a kid in a candy store. And after that? I can’t even wait to visit New York City. OH man. What I would give to attend one of the fashion blogger conferences there!

    I love this idea. I've tried to tie mine into more of a goal list for 2011 however most of them are financial.

    I should probably be adding more financial goals to mine, honestly.

    I kind of made a 2011 list, but the thing is: I WILL NEVER DO THEM. So I have to create shorter term goals. Otherwise I'll just be like, "I have all year to do that!"

    We share some of the same blog/social media goals :) The sponsorship thing sounds like a good idea. I'm starting to see it around A LOT.

    Sponsorship has definitely gained in popularity. I'm learning a lot about it so I'll be prepared when I hit that mark. I'd love to be associated with sellers that my readers would be interested in and maybe offer giveaways and such. That'd be wonderful. I hope it doesn't take me forever to reach that goal!

    I have some similar goals about organization and salty. Mainly, now that moving, birthday and dance show madness is over, I want to focus on my writing and reason again. I want to start a summer sand company. And as always, I want to conitnue saving money and being healthy and cultivating my relationships!

    I love lists like this! That's why I'm on my second 101/1001 lists. They are fun to make and to tackle! I'm also interested in commenting more of my friend's blogs and blog sponsorships. Let me know if you find anything!

    I've neglected your blog for a while and now the heading is so new and exciting!

    I think these are all great goals and I wish you luck in completing them all! =]
