Another month has passed, and if you noticed by the title, then you know that February officially marked a year of being self-hosted! For those who don’t know what it means to be self-hosted, then it basically just means that it’s been a year of officially owning and having full control of my website. Let me tell you, it’s the best feeling in the world, and the most important step in order to make a career out of blogging!
Now that we’ve gone through that accomplishment, if you’re a constant reader here then you know the drill, it’s time to look at what else I managed to accomplish in February.
Begin working on season 4 of my podcast. I, unfortunately, didn’t get to record any episodes in February, but I was able to get some information in to the person who’s going to create my new intro and outro music. So, look forward to that once season 4 is out!
Figure out technical issues with my blog (Google Analytics). Okay, so I’m cheating with this one because I didn’t figure out Google Analytics, but I did try. For anyone who has dealt with Google Analytics knows how much of a pain it can be, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you’re reading this and you know what you’re doing…this is my SOS.
Continue working on self-care. I really want to work on my self-care in all aspects, and I did so in February by trying to take care of my hair a little better. I’m terrible at oiling my scalp consistently, and we black girls know how important it is to make sure your hair and scalp are moisturized. I bought a bottle of hair growth oil that my friend created, and ever since I received it, I’ve been doing good at oiling my scalp daily (go me)!
Drink 5 (20oz) cups of water a day. I’m so proud of myself with this one! I have to be honest and say that it hasn’t been EVERY day, but it has been most days. I’m not sure why it’s so hard to drink enough water, but my goal is to make it where I’m actually craving more water instead of having to force myself like I’ve had to do quite a few times.
You really don’t realize how much you’ve accomplished until you lay everything out. I didn’t realize I accomplished anything until now, so here’s your reminder to do the same!
Now let’s get into my goals for March!
- Make 5-10 sales on my eBook
- 5 more newsletter subscribers
- update old blog posts
- work on Season 4 of pod
- Practice new hobby at least 3x a week*
- Create a morning skincare routine
- Finalize a solid morning routine (if I don’t get it done then please get on me)
*I shared what my new hobby is in yesterday’s newsletter. If you’d like to be a part of the first to know announcements and when freebies drop, then you can sign up here or on the home page.
I do have one more goal added on than the normal amount, but I believe that I can get these goals accomplished and that March will turn out successful!
What’s a goal that you have for this month?
