I wish I knew where February went. I mean, it’s only a couple of days shorter than other months so how is it gone already? I confess that I didn’t even look at my February’s Goals until about a week ago when I realized I wasn’t sure I’d done anything to complete them. Fortunately, it looks like I did a good job without even realizing it. Let’s take a look at February’s goals!
Continue Blogging More! SUCCESS. I didn’t blog as much as I would have liked to, but I attribute this to my growing computer issues (and the fact that I was sick… again). It’s taking longer and longer to complete blog posts because my now 6 year old computer is quickly dying. I am working on saving the money to purchase a replacement. The only downside to my blogging is that I never managed to do a 12X30Challenge post for the month. Blah.
Better Myself. GETTING THERE. This was a pretty cryptic goal and will remain that way. I spent the first week or so of February on vacation and found some mental clarity. I can say with confidence that I am bettering myself and working towards this goal.
Gain Profitable Sponsorship. HUGE SUCCESS! I am so thrilled to have finally sold an ad space on this blog – and for a whole 6 months. It doesn’t amount to much, but it’s something. I also did a sponsored post that I am proud of and hope to bring more of those in the future.
File my Taxes. DONE! I was really worried about my taxes when I wrote out my February goals. I had figured them all out and still owed Federal about $90 because of the “Affordable” Health Care Act. I didn’t understand how I owed that much when I make so little. Fortunately, some really important exemptions were brought to my attention and after combing through my taxes again and getting all of the forms straightened out, I no longer owe that $90. Unfortunately, federal doesn’t owe me anything either.
Get my license straightened out. FAIL. I am so embarrassed that this still isn’t done. Even when I have time off, I don’t have time!
Replace my Computer. I know, I know. I have already mentioned it a few times between this post and others, but my computer is on its last leg. I am looking to replace it within the next month and I am working super hard to get the money together – a combination of saving money from my regular day job, blog sponsorship, PayPal donations and a GoFundMe Laptop Campaign. I’m determined to have a nice, new laptop to replace my desktop by the end of the month.
Read a Book. I never find time to do this. I fall asleep often while reading since I have Narcolepsy, but that doesn’t deter my love of books. I recently received a book in my February Loot Crate and I want to read it!
More Featured Posts. I loved so much putting together an interview and doing a featured post about Liana, an awesome woman who does geek inspired watercolor & ink portrait art. I’m definitely interested in doing more posts like this one and working directly with shops, businesses, bloggers and the like to expose my readers to them.
Make Anniversary Plans. My 1 year anniversary with Jeremy is coming up on May 4th (I know, right? We have the coolest anniversary date). I know that’s a couple of months away, but we have a bad habit of procrastinating and not making plans far enough in advance. This leads to huge disappointment and stress. I want to have secured some sort of plan by the end of the month. I already requested that weekend off from work, so at least I have already made some progress.
I’m happy with how much I accomplished in February and hope to get my whole list of goals completed this month. What are your goals?
What Is This?
Every month, Link Up and share your monthly goals with My So-Called Chaos and A Peek at Karen’s World. Check out the goals of other bloggers and see how yours compare. Hold yourself accountable and maybe get a little something extra done one month at a time. Great way to break down life a bit and accomplish things!
