Reviewing April’s Resolution and Announcing May’s Goal



My goal for the month of April was to spend time journaling. I’ll be honest and claim April as a failed month. I didn’t write one word in a physical journal. I did a lot of nonfiction writing for school, but those two are completely unrelated and different writing styles. I forgot who it was that I was talking to goals about lately, and they reminded me of my Project Life scrapbook which I’m been drooling over and working on almost daily. If journal/scrapbooking counts, then I did a pretty decent job in April. I got the Project Life stuff on 4/11, and I have been working on it almost every day ever since. So depending on how you look at it, I either failed, or I did an “ehh, alright” job.


So to announce my May goal….drumroll please…..In May, I’d like to work at being a better blogger. I’m an accidental selfish blogger. What I mean by that, is that I read every blog post (of the people I follow) but I rarely comment back. Or I let great posts sit in my reader without sharing them. Or I go days without blogging. Weeks without saying anythign good sometimes. I’m still going nuts with school, but I’d like to spend more time on the blog this month. I want to comment more on the blog posts I like. I want to share more posts in my Weekly Internet Finds Series. I want to write better posts, connect with more people.

That being said, I’d like your help! Introduce yourself if you don’t usually comment on here. I’d love to make a new friend. Or suggest a new blog I should read, because my Reader could use some spring cleaning.

    We win some, we lose some when it comes to setting goals that span over an extended period of time. So don’t get down on yourself about the journaling thing. 🙂

    And hooray for your May goal! Mine is the SAME THING. So I’m glad we are on the same page. 😀

    Great May goal! I’m constantly finding new blogs on Twitter that I wasn’t previously reading. I have trouble if my Google Reader gets too big, so I try and keep up with peoples posts on Twitter too, and I keep GR for my faves 🙂

      Pshhhhh You’re a step ahead of me. I never know where to find blogs, and unfortunately most recently I’ve been twittering on my phone (and unoften) so I don’t get around to clicking as many links I would like to… Though, sometimes I can atleast click on them, and then read them later!
