Happy April! Here at Love Doing Life things slowed down a bit. Life has thrown some curve balls lately and we have been forced to take a step back and breathe. A few weeks ago my husband noticed a leak coming from an interior wall in the garage. He opened the wall up and saw that it was coming from the master bath shower. We filed a claim with insurance and my fear of a full bathroom renovation has been realized. We had plans of renovating the bathrooms we just hadn’t planned on doing this so soon. On the bright side, the insurance is going to covering about 90% of the renovation costs which is amazing! Today I am going to be talking about my monthly goals for the blog and personal and showing April a little love.

March Blog Goals

  • Grow my Instagram following to 600 – If you are not following on Instagram CLICK HERE! It is a great way to see what goes on day-to-day!
  • Grow my Facebook page to 350 likes – If you are on Facebook a lot this is a great way to find out when a new post has been published. CLICK HERE to check it out!
  • Gain FIVE new subscribers – This area is still new to me so I am taking it one step at a time. CLICK HERE to subscribe! Since I am not a fan of a ton of emails, I will not do that to you. Right now my “Sunday Love” newsletter only goes out once a month.
  • Get ahead on blog posts – I have been barely keeping my head above water when it comes to blog posts. I am still learning how to balance the blog, Etsy shop, and two children. If you have a method that works for you please share! I need help with this.
  • Make at least two Etsy sales – If you have not checked out the Etsy shop lately CLICK HERE Β to see all the wonderful items that are offered! Easter is coming! πŸ˜‰

March Personal Goals

  • Continue to walk at least two times per week – This will become much easier when Daylight Savings begins. By the time my husband gets home there isn’t much light left. Cannot wait for more sunshine in the day!!
  • Write five letters – I love receiving snail mail and I also love sending snail mail! There is something very satisfying about it.
  • Paint mailbox post – Our mailbox post needs to painted or sealed, especially since the weather here in Florida will really take a toll on wood.

As you can see my blog and personal goals for March were less than stellar. I actually got discouraged with my blog in March. Like most bloggers I consume as much information on blogging as possible. Day after day I am reading these success stories and how people are killing it in the blogging world, and I am truly happy for those people but it also highlights the realization that I am not there yet. One positive thing that has come from this, I am getting to practice my self-encouragement. I know that I have what it takes to succeed I just need to be patient. Even thought I did not complete all my personal goals we got a lot of house project either started or completed. We finally removed an old chain link fence in the backyard that has been there for over two years. We have also started to plant flowers in our garden beds which I love!

And now, here are my monthly goals: April love!

  • Paint mailbox post – Our mailbox post needs to painted or sealed, especially since the weather here in Florida will really take a toll on wood.
  • Read one book – Some of you may laugh at the thought of only reading one book but allow me to share with you all the things I try to balance. A husband, toddler, three-month old, dog, cleaning, laundry, meals, fitness classes, writing a book, master bath renovation, blogging, Etsy shop, friends, family, and sometimes when I am lucky me. There are so many facets to my life which I love but by the end of the day I can barely keep my eyes open. The thought of reading a book puts me to sleep right now and it’s 4:30 in the afternoon.
