2016 Quarterly Goals | Q3 Goals

I never thought baby brain was really a thing. I always thought it was an excuse to let off pregnant women when they couldn’t be arsed. Ignorant of me to think so, yes, but I do still believe some women milk it. After 5 months of getting up repeatedly during the night either to pee, eat or tackle some heart burn, the lack of sleep starts to get to you. I hadn’t been able to focus on any one thing for longer than 20 minutes. Now little Luna is here I have a new sense of drive, and being as she sleeps a good chunk of the time I figure now is a good time to set some new goals.

Blog

Set a schedule. I would like post three times a week. I have lists of post ideas, I just need to write the articles. At the very least I should a post each week.

Youtube

Keep it up. This past week I’ve gotten three videos up. This is the pace I’d like to maintain.
Booktube. I would like to get back into booktube. I have a lot more time for reading in the evenings and I’d like to talk about what I’ve read. Even if it’s just a weekly round up of what I read and then I’ll build from there.

Social Media

Instagram. I’m so lazy when it comes to instagram. It’s such an easy platform that I could really benefit from. Again I’m going to challenge myself to post there three times a week.
Twitter. To be honest I still don’t understand the point of Twitter and I’ve considered eliminating it. I’m going to give it until the end of the quarter. I’m challenging myself to use Twitter once a day anf if I still don’t see any benefits I’ll be deleting my account.

Reading

Goodreads Guilt. Everytime I log in to Goodreads I’m met with my yearly goal and the fact I’m 41 books behind amd counting. As I have more time now I should be able to close this gap. But it means I’ll have to finish at least 4 books a week to meet my goal of 100 for the year… yikes!
Serial Killer. During my reading adventures I want to finish up some series. I have lots of them. I read the first book, bought the rest of the series and just never got round to finishing them. Or in some cases I liked the premise of the first book, bought it and every sequel and now own a series I don’t know If I’ll like. My main focus will be the works of Cassandra Clare. I feel like I’m missing out in that one.

Other Projects

Writing
I want to finish my first draft of Live Laugh Love and have drafted a plan for Channelers by the end of the quarter. This is a hefty goal but it’s one that I really want to achieve even if I have to put off other goals.
Jewelry. I want to get my jewelry business back up and running. I have the supplies, the time and the creativity. I just need to get on it.

That is an impressive list of goals for me to work towards. Some may say daunting, but I like to keep it positive here.
What are your goals for this quarter? Let me know in the comments of leave me a link to your blog.
