The retrograde is over. We survived. Everyone take a shot.
Burning sensation done? Cool.
Now that we got the celebration out of the way, August is right around the corner and it’s time to set goals for the month right? Right.
Here’s five things I hope to accomplish before September creeps it’s head in and we are officially ready for fall.
To expand my blog to more varying range of topics.
In July, I kind of got carried away helping to heal others. Which is never a bad thing, but I began to focus on more relationship and dating topics and it was a success.
The retrograde brought insight and ruined communication. Maybe even some relationships and friendships along the way, but we can’t “cry over spilled liqour” or whatever the saying is.
After using enough Bounty to make a mom cringe, we are cleaning things up. Yes, I will still continue on with dating and relationship topics, but I plan to expand into sports, fashion, entertainment, music and even finding some recipes to share.
In hopes not to alienate any particular group, I look to enjoy discussing a wide range of topics with my humor and wit and I hope the subscribers will enjoy that as well.
To continue growing my social media presence.
If you’re a blogger, you understand how important social media is. But you also understand how difficult it is to find active users to engage with post. (I’ll probably write about it more in another post.) But it’s essential to growing a following on your blog.
Over the last month, I’ve experimented with topics catered to relationships. I’ve created polls and I used those polls to create dope post as well as network with great individuals worldwide. But the world is much more than relationships. So I will use the tools I learned to continue to increase my following and engagements, just gonna post about various topics instead of focusing on mainly one. Hopefully you guys stick around for it.
Take a trip somewhere I never been.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I get around. I like to travel. I’m very nomadic and it’s something that makes me happy. Over the summer, I decided to stay with some family friends down in Georgia and though it was tougher than many other places I’ve been. I’ve grown accustomed to this heat and the many bugs.
But my itch to see something new is growing and I know eventually I need to scratch it. I’ve crossed many places off of my travel bucket list in the last couple years, but it’s still so many places I would like to see.
I’ve decided by the end of August even if it’s for just a weekend, I want to visit somewhere. Whether it’s Milwaukee because of my love of deers or Virginia because it’s the place for lovers. Those two destinations are on my list of places I’d like to see. (Editor’s Note: We will get to Cali eventually. Bare with me.)
Find a passive source of income that can turn into more reliable income.
Three years ago, when I started this journey into entrepreneurship I had no goals. I just knew I never wanted to punch somebody’s clock while making their dreams come true while mine sat dormant.
Three years later, I’m proud to say the growth with this blog has been humbling but a blessing. It’s been a slow process but I eventually understand how blogging works. And yes, I haven’t found a way to make income off of it yet, but I have increased viewership. But the goal is to work for myself right? Right.
I’ve created a business for social media branding and I plan to actually find clients that actually understand that you have to pay for services. I will use this as a passive income until it’s more reliable while “working a regular job” and while keep the blog running.
And last but not least..
To actually go on a date and live a little.
So for all those that have been following for awhile, you know I eat, sleep, shit and blog. And I barely do two of the four if we are being honest with each other. I haven’t lived a life worth talking about and that’s got to change.
Lately, I’ve been engaging more with the opposite sex and actually looking for a date. But I don’t go anywhere. But this upcoming month, I plan to change that.
I feel a lot more confident about myself and what I have to offer. It hasn’t always been this way, but here we are. It’s refreshing and I kind of feel like my old self, which truthfully isn’t good, but it’s necessary for me to continue to progress. Maybe I’ll actually find someone I like and that likes me back. But I’m getting old and I truthfully don’t want to grow old alone.
So actually living life a little and taking a break from blogging 24/7 is necessary and I could use a recharge of my batteries.
But those are my five goals for the month of August.
