Back for the New Year! 2017 Goals

Keeping up habits when you have a full time job can be tough! Since I last wrote, the holidays have come and gone, year-end goals at work have been set and production has been ramping up, and I started working on becoming a better storyteller in an effort to make a bigger push on this blog.

I also did more research by paying attention to the types of posts I enjoy and the types of real-life point of view stories I enjoy reading. My biggest fear is that Not a Mom Squad will become a diary of personal rants. My second biggest fear is that it will become successful! Which brings me to goals.

How will I know if my blog is successful?

SMART goals generally stands for setting goals that are:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Actionable
  • Realistic
  • Time-based

SMART goal examples could be to lose weight by a certain date, to save a specific amount of money, or to cook a low-calorie meal instead of ordering in a few times a month. For Not A Mom Squad, my 2017 goal is to post at least 4 times a month over the next year. I hope that by writing and sharing 48 posts, I will develop my voice, find an audience, and maybe even learn how to take better care of myself!

I’m looking forward to sharing my “secrets to success” (in quotes because I don’t feel successful), my “lifehacks” (in quotes because it’s mostly just how-to’s for the chronically lazy), and my trials and errors as I document my own version of living my best life.

I hope you will keep reading, consider signing up to receive an email every time a new post is published, and to hit me up with ideas, comments, inspiration, or laughs.
