2017 Goals Check In #2!

Back at the start of the year, I shared with you my 2017 Goals for the year ahead. Seeing as we've rolled into October already (where has this year gone!?!) I thought I'd do a mini check in to see how I'm going so far with a few of the goals. If you want to see all of the goals, check out the original blog post, or see the mini check in I done back in April.

Personal Goals
  • Read 4 books I managed to get halfway into one book so far... Does that count??
  • Drive somewhere new - Haven't made any progress with this since April
  • Go to the cinema 15 times - Not too bad here, managed 6 trips so far
  • Start & uphold, the 52 Week Saving Challenge - I've done really well here! Week 42 and I'm still going!
  • Organise my room better - Totally done this!  
  • Start and finish writing a book - Sort of. I wrote an outline, three chapters and then some notes for the next few plots.
  • Go out more often - Have got a little better with this! Done a three night outing streak in May, and lots of other little fun trips!

Blog Goals
  • 1200 Bloglovin followers - At 1065, so possible to do still!
  • 5500 Twitter followers - At 4390...
  • 1250 Instagram followers - Sitting on 1080, which is over 100 less than back in April
  • 400 YouTube subscribers ✔
  • 350 Facebook page likes ✔
  • 200,000 blog page views ✔
  • Post 3 times each week ✔

Overall, not too bad so far! I really need to get a move on with the personal goals, as those are the ones I actually want to achieve by the end of the year, but I'm finding them a little tricky still. Quite happy with how my blog goals are going so far, and the fact I've achieved a handful of them already so close to the end of the year.

How are you doing with all of your goals or resolutions for the year so far? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

  1. This post confused the hell out of me because the first line I saw was "seeing as we've rolled into April already" and I was suddenly totally bamboozled. I actually went to check the date on my computer, because I thought maybe I'd imagined the last 6 months, haha! Confusion aside, you've done so well with your goals! Good luck for the ones you've yet to achieve, I'm sure you'll get there by the end of the year :) x x

    1. Haha, this is what happens when I'm thinking about my April post and put that instead of October! Changed it now - sorry for confusing you!! I should proof read these things before publishing!! Hope you're goals are going well too :) xx

  2. I enjoy reading your goals and seeing if you achieve them. Makes me want to do one.

    1. Thank you! Hope if you have set some goals for this year, that you're doing well with them :) xx


Thank you for dropping by my blog! I read all my comments, and will try and reply when I can!
