October has passed and November has now rolled in which means…we’re getting closer to Christmas! Though the title isn’t about Christmas, I am very excited about being closer to the holiday season because Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday!
Before I can officially dive into November, of course, I have to take a look back into October and all that has been accomplished. With that being said, let’s give a recap on my October goals and see how I did!
Reach 900 podcast plays. When I look and see how I am able to check this goal off of my list, all I can do is feel a flood of gratitude. Yes, I’m the one that records and puts out the podcast episodes on a consistent basis, but it’s the listeners who meet me halfway by supporting me that gets me to where I am. When I said that I’m getting closer in the title of this blog post, I’m referring to one of the goals that I made for 2021. The goal is to reach 1k plays on my podcast and I’m almost there! Not only am I almost there, but I’m currently 36 plays away! I’m so close and if you haven’t had a chance to listen, The Black Princess Diaries podcast is available on all streaming platforms or you can listen to my podcast here.
Practice promoting myself every day. I still have a lot of work to do with this one, but nothing happens overnight. I have so much to promote that it becomes a little bit overwhelming at times and I end up not promoting much at all. I’m proud of what I have done though and I think that I’ll keep this as a goal to continue working on!
Now that we’ve recapped for October, let’s look ahead to what I’d like to accomplish for the month of November!
- Reach 50 email subscribers
- Practice promoting myself everyday
- Work on SEO
- Bulk create all blogmas posts
- Practice being the main character daily
- Work on sleeping at a proper time
What are your goals for November? I’d love it if you shared them with me in the comments!
Well done! 👏👏👏 am very happy for you. Keep at it, working hard always pays back ( BTW Xmas is my favorote holida too ☃️)
Thank you so much love! And yes another Christmas lover! 🎄💕

Congratulations. SEO is tough, but please share the things you learn about it. And share how you balance your time between the blog and podcast and the relationship between the two. Id say use your blog to promote your podcast and vice-versa. Have you thought of written summaries or previews of your podcast in your blog?
If I actually manage to take the time finally to do it, then I definitely don’t mind sharing a few tips I’ve learned! I’ll write that idea down of sharing my time between the two. I also occasionally mention each other on both platforms already! I don’t think I’ll be writing summaries or previews on my blog as of right now, but my podcast is available to listen to on my blog as well located on the homepage or just go to theblackprincessdiaries.com/podcast ♥

Well done for your podcast goal, I’m sure you’ll reach your 1000 posts too. Take small steps with your self promotion. Put it all down on paper (or type it – I’m old 😂) then break it down so you know what will work each day. My goals are writing goals this month x
That’s a great idea! And don’t worry, I love writing and typing lol. Somethings I prefer to type but others I need to have physically like books and planners. We both will do great this month ♥

Thanks for sharing this.
Well done on the podcast and thanks for also sharing the struggles. It’s difficult to manage all tasks as a blogger.
I wish you all the best for your November goals.
Of course! I think it’s important to share the struggles also because others should, not only see that they’re not alone, but that it’s normal. It’s super hard to manage tasks. I have so many different goals for the different areas of my life and I’m just trying to balance it all. Thank you love and I wish for you to have a successful November also ♥

Inspiring goals that make me think a lot about my own progress and the work ahead! I think “practice being the main character daily” is an awesome approach to self love and acceptance. I’m with you on the promotion one. It’s a lot, but here we are sticking with it. Oh, and I’m excited for the winter holidays getting started too!
There’s someone I follow on Instagram and she’s always talking about being the main character on her stories, which is what inspired me to start trying. I love the concept of it! It’s definitely a lot but I’m proud of us for sticking strong! And yes I’ve already been watching Christmas movies on TV and it has me even more excited for the holidays ♥
