There have been things that have been and gone in my life, but one thing that I’ve been consistent and proud of is my blogging journey. I can’t take credit for this post idea, Jenny in Neverland recently shared her blogging journey and I loved the idea of sharing how I started, my favourite moments and the future. Thank-you Jenny for sharing your journey! It was such an insightful post and I am so proud of everything you’ve achieved.
I started An Ocean Glimmer in October 2013, for college I had to create a blog to showcase my writing. As this was something I had to do, I never had the passion like I do now, I didn’t last long before stopping. When I was writing for The Checkered Flag I would share a mini blurb and direct traffic to The Checkered Flag. I didn’t restart An Ocean Glimmer probably until May 2016 with my very first post, Free Comic Book Day 2016.
Being nominated for a blogger award is always an amazing feeling! I always get excited when I receive the notification and a few days ago was no difference. The blogging community is amazing and I just want to say a thank-you for nominating me, Samantha from Always Believe in a Miracle for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
We’re already halfway through the year, which means it’s less than six months until Christmas! Can you believe it? I love writing these Monthly Goals as it helps me to be on target for my Personal and Blogging Goals. I feel without them I would forget and go off track, there’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the year and not achieving the Goals you set out at the beginning.
Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for June and creating some new ones for July. June has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy with a couple of car shows and visiting Plymouth. I swear I have not stopped and it’s gone so quick to think it’s now July. You can learn all about what I’ve been loving throughout June here.
Before I set myself some new Goals for July, let’s reflect on my June Goals!

Can you believe that it’s already the end of March!? Like where on earth are the months going, I’ve had a great start to 2018 and I’m really enjoying myself. I’m quite positive that I’m on track to achieve the Goals that I set out in my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals. It’s all well and good setting Goals but it’s even better when you are able to accomplish them.
If you follow my Monthly Goals, you’ll know I’m doing quite well on achieving my Goals, I do have a couple of moments each month but don’t we all. Today, I wanted to share with you some of my tips on setting realistic and achievable goals. I know it’s nearing the end of March, but I feel if you’re struggling with your Goals at the moment, these tips could help you.

Last month, I shared with you my 2018 Goals, I love creating posts like this as for me it gives me motivation for the upcoming year. Here I planned out the things I would like to achieve, I try and keep these quite simple and actually made them achievable! Nothing worse than picking a goal and not being able to achieve it during your desired time frame. This post though is all about my 2018 Blogging Goals.
I’ve really upped my blogging game over the last few months and I’ve got everything crossed that I can achieve a lot in 2018 if I put my mind to it! I was going to include these goals in my 2018 Goals post, but I felt it was better to separate them, else the post would have been quite long and I’m not sure how many of you would actually read that much. I finished 2017 reasonably good, even with not being 100% focused on my blog.
I feel 2018 might just be a good year for An Ocean Glimmer, shall we get started with my 2018 Blogging Goals?

It’s nearly the end of January, our first month of 2018 is nearly complete! It’s been a crazy month, as well as very busy, not only in my personal life but also at work, January is a horrible month having to pick up things after being off for Christmas. This is the first year I’ve experienced something like this as I’ve always worked in retail and a Christmas break doesn’t exist!
One thing I love doing at this time of year is plan out what I want to achieve, you could even call it complete. I know I do my Monthly Goals but those are more specific for each month, whereas these Goals I don’t actually know when I’ll complete them. I’ve never been one for setting New Year Resolutions, I feel Goals are much better, for me, they give more motivation to achieve them.
