It’s goal-setting time once again, is it weird I’m actually starting to ENJOY my goal setting?
I’ve reduced my goals this month to 6, as I am having an Unwind Week this month and I need to actually unwind!
Thankfully, I remembered that while in the middle of setting my goals so shoved a few of them towards April. Look at me being all sensible! 😉

Okay, let’s start with the usual recap of last month’s goals and how I did.
Last Month’s Goals
01 – Write 27,000 Words – DONE – I actually managed 28,324
02 – Update 50 blog posts – DONE – I actually updated 71 blog posts!
03 – Fix Issue on Google Console – NOT DONE – for some reason I couldn’t sign in to the console.
04 – Read 1 book – DONE – I actually managed to read 4 books!
05 – Go on a Date – DONE – Normally we aim for a simple Costa date (which we managed) but for our 16th Anniversary together, my partner took me to see Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show!
06 – Run a Month of Updates – DONE – I planned them, created the imagery and set my phone with alerts to tell me when they had to be uploaded.
07 – Update ALL NuMONDAY listings – DONE
08 – Create a Timeline – DONE – this is the secret project, we had meetings, decided what needed to be done, assigned jobs and got to work! 🙂
Hot damn! That was a good month! In fact, not only did I manage to complete almost all those goals I also managed to:
- Organise all my stock (and damn was there a lot!)
- Rearrange some rooms (we relocated our bedroom to a different room)
- Finish the house purge (going through every room and reducing our possessions)
- Design how my Craft Room needs to be set up (once we’ve had our house rewire)
- Completely rearranged our box room
This Month’s Goals
01 – Write 28,300 Words
In order for me to complete the 85K Writing Challenge, I need to write approx 28,000 words in March.
As before, I will keep my overall total word count update on my Friday blogs as a form of accountability. (Thanks to everyone who has been cheering me on!)
02 – Update 40 Blog Posts
I’m still trying to keep this one reachable, but like last month, will do a push to hit more than this target. But if I only manage 40, it’s a win.
03 – Fix Google Console
Hopefully, if I can get into the console, I can fix it!
04 – Read 2 Book
Since I started reading every night, I’m getting through books a lot quicker. So I’m upping this goal to 2 books, mostly because I have my Unwind Week in March and will hopefully have a few days to chill and just read. Bliss!
05 – Go on a Date
We have been together 16 years and my partner and I are still as close as ever, if not closer, than when we first met. So having these “dates” which can be going out somewhere or simply to the coffee house, is important.
To give these dates even more weight, they are going to be added to my goals list.
06 – Get Ready for Taxes
My financial year runs April to April, so I need to get all my paperwork and accounts up to date to make doing my Self Assessment easier once my financial year ends.
Friday Update: 62,658 words (tracking my word count for the 85K Writing Challenge).
