Goals & 3 New Pages!

I love creating. I love writing. I love sharing and meeting new friends.
I've been blogging along for 2 weeks now. I had incredible response from my post "Pieces of My Heart Typography". Lofty blogging ideas abound and I'm totally hooked.

I expected little to no response to my projects. However that's not the case. (THANK YOU ALL!!!) I needed to set some goals for myself and remember why I pushed publish on my first post. They also needed to fit with my life. I think everyone should ask themselves these questions.

Like why do make the doofiest lookin picture your profile picture? LOL. By the way, I'm standing in front of a picture of the forest pretending to run through it.

Sorry, I just needed to add a picture to this post- ok ok seriously:

What are my blogging goals? How do they fit with my personal goals?

First, the word that defines my personal goals for 2011 is Polish. I've got so tied up in acquiring things. Things like a house, family, business etc. Yes I acquired all that, but it was half assed. My house is a mess. My kids are not learning responsibility. My business records are a wad of paper in a box. The list goes on. My goal is to polish and streamline everything going on.

Now, to my blogging goals. I want my blog to make me accountable to my personal goals. I only want to post or make something for me. I want to connect with like minded bloggers and make new friends.

With that being said, I've created 3 new pages. One lists my goals that I want to blog about. There's just a few right now, but I will be adding more.

The second is for my friends to showcase and inspire others!

Last is an idea. I hope it will grow into more, but it will depend on the response.

Thanks for reading! I'm so thankful for all you readers.

Can anyone else relate? Am I just a crazy person? What are your blogging goals?


  1. Sounds attainable to me!!~ Have fun..and thanks for joining in....XO

  2. I love your ideas and goals. And a blog is a great way to be accountable! -- at least I think so. I'm trying something similar & I started on the first of the year, so still pretty new, like you!


  3. Hi, I am a newbie blogger myself, only about a month now. I have some goals, but have not posted on my blog yet. I seem to keep getting sick and then get discouraged.
    I have the same messy house, lack of responsiblity teens and taking a class in accounting to help with paperwork.
    I hope to learn more about you and am now a follower.

  4. haha...I think most of us can relate in one way or another. For me, the messy house and kids that are not learning responsibility rings a bell! Good luck in your blogging adventure. I found you on Debbiedoo's.


  5. I think your goals sound great. BTW I am having a blog party and the link opens up tonight at 8pm EST. I hope you will stop by and join in for the fun. www.diybydesign.blogspot.com. Hope to see you then.

  6. I love your thinking! I'm thinking about all that right now too. Thanks for following me! I think it's cool that we started blogging around the same time (kind of like we're the same age!) J/K!
