Monthly Goals // September 2018

A new month means new adventures and new Goals for the upcoming month, it’s goodbye August and hello September. I can’t understand where the past month has gone, especially as August is a five week month. I already know what’s coming as August wasn’t the best month, I know I haven’t been able to achieve them. I wasn’t able to push myself as much as I liked thanks to being super busy each week.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for August and creating some new ones for SeptemberAugust has been such a busy month! Who said August is quiet? Not only has work been busy but I have been up to a variety of things outside, from visiting Red Bull Racing and spending the weekend at Silverstone, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // August 2018 here.

Before I set myself some new Goals for September, let’s reflect on my August Goals!

Collaboration Month | I have a couple of collaborations lined up but unfortunately, not as many as I would have liked! I am happy with the collaborations I have organised but also some companies have contacted me after emailing them some time ago. I’m pretty excited about these, it’s always good to work with a brand.

Attend World Endurance Championship | Done! I was super excited to visit Silverstone for the World Endurance Championship. I have definitely missed this event and it lived up to what I remembered.

Plan August & September Content | Done! Thankfully I was able to finally get some ideas planned and written for August, now I’ve moved to September. I have a couple planned thanks to the collaborations but I still need more. I am hoping to have a good weekend of searching and planning soon.

Comment on Blog Posts | I participated in quite a few blog comment pods at the beginning of the month but unfortunately, even though I commented on what seemed like all the posts and then some, I didn’t receive much back. This is one of the only reasons I dislike the blogging community, I feel like you don’t have much in return. Throughout September I am going to continue this and hopefully, have some returned comments.

Increase Twitter Stats | My Twitter stats were a mixed page in August, overall I improved from July but not massively! I am in a healthy place with my Twitter and I am going to push myself, I would love to reach 3.5k followers soon. I have been wanting this goal for a while now, I am currently 26 followers away. If you’re not already following me, please do follow me here and I’ll follow back!

Increase Page Views | I wasn’t able to increase my page views to the desired number but thankfully I did achieve a similar number to July. The past two months have been hard and it’s definitely shown itself from my views. Over the coming months, I am going to push myself to be where I was May/June maybe even this time last year.


Let’s get to my September Goals!

Comment on Blog Posts | For me, sharing the love with fellow bloggers is important, during September I going to schedule some time to comment on posts. Instead of just flicking through Twitter or Instagram, I am going to head over to some of my favourite blogs and catch up!

Plan September & October Content | Content has really dried up for me recently, I am getting closer to having no content so I really need to sit down and just plan upcoming content. I am hoping to do that sooner rather than later as currently I only have content up to mid-September!

Attend British Touring Car Championship | September is another month I’ll be visiting Silverstone, this time around it is for the British Touring Car Championship. I can not wait to attend this one, it’s always a great weekend of racing!

Increase Twitter Stats | I had a healthy August and I want to continue this into September, it would be great to increase my followers as I mentioned above. At the same time of reaching a good number of impressions and profile visits, this in return should help boost my blog views which is something I really want to increase.

Spend Time with Family | Since moving to Aylesbury, I have hardly seen my parents, now they’re are over an hour away. During September I would love to try and spend more time with them but also my cousin and his family. There are quite a few birthdays this month, so hopefully we can all celebrate these!

Organise Photos | This year, thanks to living so close, I have been able to attend the smaller events at Silverstone. Meaning I have the opportunity to take photos in my role as an official photographer. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the time to go through all these photos, I am going to schedule some time to do just this! Then hopefully hand them over to Silverstone before they create the material for next season.

I hope you have enjoyed this post! What is the one thing you would love to achieve this month? Let me know in the comment!

  1. These sound like great goals Gemma. That’s so cool that you are an official photographer for Silverstone, I hope you manage to sort through all your pictures. Enjoy celebrating the birthdays with your family too! Hope you achieve everything you want to and have a lovely month! ❤ xx

    1. Thank-you Bexa! I’ve managed to sort through one lot, but there’s still at least two more. Not even half way through September so I’m hopeful. I hope so, I hope you have a lovely month aswell


  2. Great goals. Love the one about spending more time with family. I think that’s important. My one and only goal for this month is to be my best instead of trying x


  3. Good luck with your goals lovely! I used to take part in so many blog comment threads on Twitter and although I do love the blogging community and 99% of people are SO supportive you soon learn who just link drops and won’t actually return the comments. The best ones I’ve found are on @hellobexa on a Sunday and the @bloggerstribe ones!

    1. Thank youu Jess! I really am pushing myself. Thank you for those recommendations! Yes I have definitely noticed that, which is a shame but totally agree with you on @hellobexa. I love participating in her blog pods, those are the greatest and I do receive good comments and have met some friendly people.


  4. These sound like fab goals. I like to set some too in terms of daily page views. I really want to try and reach 5K on Instagram by the end of the year but it’s such a struggle. So many people constantly following & unfollowing. IT’s very frustrating.
