Goals for May (and a giveaway!)

In the blogging world, it seems like the beginning of a new month means two things: a ton of giveaways, and goals for the month ahead.  And who am I to argue with either one of those things?  I love making lists (especially of things I need to get accomplished), and who doesn’t love free stuff?  So in celebration of what I consider the beginning of spring, I’ve got both of those things for you today.  Exciting, right?


Blog Goals

1 // Reach 50 followers on Bloglovin‘! I’m so excited to start growing this little space on the Internet.

2 // Start taking much more photos

3 // Write five days a week, every week (this one is going to be difficult for me)

4 // Work on writing more meaningful posts, rather than just lists and photos

5 // Start using social media more, and better.  Anybody have suggestions?

Life Goals

1 // Get moved in to new place!!! (May 17th…I’m counting down the days)

2 // Get my room fully unpacked and decorated

3 // Learn to make one real meal.  Pinterest, anyone?

4 // After Boldface, get my essay fully edited and ready to submit to literary magazines

5 // Choose classes for Paralegal School, and get ready to start classes in June

What about you?  What are your goals for the next 30 days?

And now, on to the best part of today’s post: the giveaway!!

    Pinterest is great for recipe inspiration. I’d recommend a one-pot meal…something you can make any night of the week when you’re tired and don’t want to do tons of dishes! I love stir fry, which also happens to be a great way to use up leftovers.

      Oh, and a goal for the month is to get a solid 8 hours of sleep per night…I know this one will be tough but worth it.

      I’m definitely going to be stalking Pinterest for easy recipe ideas! I’m an awful cook, but I really want to get better at it, and the Internet makes that so much easier. Stirfry sounds like a delicious option! Thanks :) And good luck with the sleep – I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

    One of my goals is to get a lot more organized in all areas of my life!

      I love organization!! That might be one of the reasons I’m so partial to lists. I definitely suggest a planner if you don’t already have one, or else Evernote. I use both!

    I love this list of goals! I am thinking about making a list of goals for my blog too! :)

      Thanks so much! I say do it – I keep mine in my Evernote so that I can keep track of it throughout the month.

    If you want, I can e-mail you some recipes on Facebook. I’m compiling a cookbook for my move! Good luck with your goals. Mine for the month of May: fill out an application for an apartment next week, rent one, find a job and move at the end of the month. Fingers are crossed. :)

    I like #3 of your blog goals. In regards to #4 of your blog goals, I understand what you mean…I have loads of photo-posts on my blog!

    As for your life goals, good luck with your new home. :)
