February Goal Recap & New Goals for March

It's that time again. The time of the month where I recap on the goals I set last month and set new goals for this month. This project has really helped me to see that I suck at sticking to personal goals. While I did not meet all of my goals, I did meet some I hadn't written down!

I got my house completely and utterly clean. I purged so much junk and stuff that I don't need that I now have too much space!

I got my tiny humans on a schedule and the house seems to run more smoothly.

I found a natural alternative to help with my anxiety and depression.

I have started writing more often and actually generating a passive income from doing so!

On to the goals we discussed last month and new goals for this month.

Blog

100 views per page. I was not able to do this! I did get close with having my older posts viewed 100 or more times, but I was not as diligent with my newer posts. Fail.

Make $200 in affiliate marketing. This month, my affiliate income was approximately $50. I focused more on my writing career than I did my blog and marketing. Fail.

Write 1 erotic piece. I actually wrote 10! While they were ghostwritten and I can't claim the credit for them, I did write 10 erotic pieces. Go me! Did it!

Write 3 blog posts a week. I really need to focus more on prewriting when I have time. I do great with getting blog posts out in time if I have them queued up. Fail.

Have 100 members in my facebook group. While my group has been more active, I have actually gone down in members. I went from 60 to 59. If you would like to be added to my group (it's for bloggers, sex toy users, manufacturers, and sellers) please lemme know! Fail.


Personal

Walk 1 mile a week. My plans to be fit and tone and exercise a lot have not been going well. I haven't even been drinking my smoothies anymore and have instead opted for a plain biscuit each morning. In other words, walking one mile a week in February did not happen. Fail.

Finish PolyHubby's scarf. I have a love/hate relationship with crocheting. I think it is time for me to put aside this project and work on something else. I did not complete Poly Hubby's scarf. Fail.

Finish The Last Star. While I did not finish The Last Star, I did start on The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice. It's a great book and I recommend you read it if you'd like some good smut. Fail, but did part?

Make an exercise routine & stick with it! I actually did make an exercise plan and it is hanging up in my hallway. But I did not stick with it. Another fail.

Orgasm. With the help of the BSwish BThrilled I actually want to get off more and have been getting off at least 4 times a week. I did it! 


With all that being said, you can bet your ass that some of these will be tried again in March! On to new goals...

Blog

100 views per page. I need to advertise my blog more diligently. With thousands of views on a couple of my pieces, I know that 100 per page is nothing. I can do this.

Make $1,200 in affiliate marketing & online writing. I really slacked up last month with this. My goal is to bring in $300 a week. This is what I would make with an out of the home job, and if I want to continue writing for a living, I need to prove to myself that I can bring in a good income.

Write 1 erotic piece for the blog. While I have been writing a lot of erotica lately, it isn't stuff that I can claim under my name and share with you guys. This month I want to write a 5,000 word erotica just for you guys. Anything y'all would like to read in particular?

Prewrite 3 Blog Posts Every Sunday for Each Week! I really hate myself for not being able to provide content on time here. I truly love my blog and want to keep it up to date and fun to visit. This month I plan to write out a weeks worth of posts on Sunday so that you can enjoy Poly Love & Sex on the weekdays I have promised to deliver content on!

Instead of doing 5 goals this month, I'm going to focus on these four.


Personal

Draw something. I haven't been drawing as much as I would like to lately. I'd love to draw a detailed landscape piece this month. I am confident that a month is more than enough time to draw something I'm proud of.

Read The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. I started it recently, but I am already a good ways through it. I read a lot of blogs, articles, and other online media, but I miss the feel of an actual book in my hand.

Pass current class. I'm in school for a Bachelor's in English and so far I am loving the class I am. The problem is I usually burn out half way through. This semester I want to plan out my week on Sunday and pass the class with a high grade.

Keep my house clean. As I said previously in this post, a goal I didn't write down but did complete was completely cleaning my house. I want to keep it this way. I find that when my house is not clean it is easy for me to slip into depression. A clean house equals a healthy me.

Again, I'm just going to focus on four goals this month. Maybe 5 is too many for me. I know that comping up with 5 for this month seems daunting. What are you goals for this month?
