89 Days

(Daily Prompt: Goals)  

When you started your blog, did you set any goals? Have you achieved them? Have they changed at all?

I am a novice blogger.  I started this blog on March 8th of this year, 89 days ago.  When I started, I really didn’t know what I was doing only that I loved to write, tell stories and share my life stories with other people.  After several posts, I realized that I needed to focus and have more goals for why I’m blogging.  That’s where my “White Rabbit Project” came from, I decided to find my passion or passions in 365 days, make them part of my life and share my journey.  With that, I knew that to be successful I needed to have specific goals.  I came up with 3 goals to reach for at the end of the 365 days.   (Which I mention in an earlier post Day 43…The View From Here)  

How am I doing on reaching those goals, you ask?  (Even if you’re not asking you know you’re going to get an answer anyway…)  For awhile, I was very consistent on writing almost everyday, taking Sundays off for family and rest.  Then life happened and at the end of April, I began to slip into a little slump.  (You can read about that in the post ….”The Writing Slump”)  I have by no means, given up on those goals.  However, I am pushing through while trying to keep in mind that I need to write with passion and heart or this my love of writing will become just another task.

The other 2 goals of working on my writing projects (other than my blog) and getting them published,  I will admit that I haven’t even restarted those projects.  Which is irritating because by my words and sharing my passion with other friends who are writers, they have begun and finished their projects.  In fact, 2 of my friends have published their books already and I am still here writing about it.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s great that I was able to encourage them and help them restart and finish their goals but I need to put my own words into actions.

So, thank you to the Daily Post for the Daily Prompt today, you have reminded me to get my butt in gear and reach for my brass ring.

  11. Hi there, I am pleased to say I have attained one goal which you can read about how I went about getting a book published but to be true I have yet to fulfill the goal I set out when I launched the blog. It’s all part of life’s rich journey. Wish you well.
