I cannot believe it’s already August! The month of July definitely flew by. I’m sad summer is going so fast! July was such a busy month for us. We did a lot of traveling and had my annual family camping trip. Despite being so busy, I was able to make a ton of progress on blog stuff. I’ve been improving the layout, working on building my email list, and making plans for future projects that I’m super excited about! I think August is going to be another big month!
Let’s start with a recap of my July goals!
–Make at least one new meal per week. (I don’t think it was technically one per week, but we did try a lot of new meals!
–Start laying down plans for my Etsy shop. (I’ve started working on my designs and have lots of ideas for future ones!)
–Send out wedding thank-you cards. (So close! We finished them yesterday.)
–Clean out my closet. (So proud of myself for getting this done! I might do a blog post this month on closet organization. What do you think?
–Surpass 1,000 followers on all of my social media platforms. (No, but I was close! I surpassed 1,000 on both Facebook and Twitter, but am about 80 short in Instagram. Help me out, will you?
-Open my Etsy shop! Yes! I’m so excited! I still have a ton of work to do before launching it, but I definitely think I can have it done this month. More specifically, I’d like to have it done in the next two weeks or so, but I’ll call anything in August a win. Anyone who has an Etsy shop who could offer some advice, I will love you forever.
-Clean out the guest room closet and hall linen closet. Now that the wedding is over, I’m in reorganization mode. I’m done with the master closet, so I’d like to do the guest room closet and the hall closet, because they are both in desperate need of being reorganized.
-Surpass 10,000 page views on the blog. I’ve been teetering on the edge of 10K for a couple of months, so I’d like to pass it this month!
-Work out 3x per week. I’ve been doing okay with my fitness goals, but I’m not great with working out consistently. I’ve been doing a lot of Pilates, which I really enjoy. I just want to push myself to do it at least 3x per week this month.
-Find a new job. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I need to find a new job. I’m not a fan of unemployment, so I’m hoping to get this squared away sooner, rather than later.
I’m also excited to let you all know that I’m officially accepting sponsors on Very Erin! If you’re interested in checking out the options (including free ad swaps!) check them out on my Work With Me page!
