And for good reason – I need the accountability. With not as much time to get things done and a good dose of “baby brain” (I swear it’s even worse than “pregnancy brain”), I’m all over the place and things have been hanging on my to-do list for quite a while now.
My goal lists are a nice mix of personal and business, because that’s just how my life is. A nice blend that I don’t want to separate at the moment.
But before we jump in, I wanted to let you guys know that I’m working with Laura from Paper & Honey on a new handwritten logo for the site. I’ve been eyeing her work for a while and finally reached out and asked if she could help a girl out. It should be debuting this month, and I can’t wait to show you the final design.
Okay, let’s get into the good stuff.
Start writing CrushWorthy so you guys can finally get your hands on it (My original plan was to launch it this month, but that’s obviously not going to happen. New plan = launch by March 2015. Ha!)
Edit Work With Me page to reflect new services This happened earlier today!!
Finish writing my Resources page and publish for ya’ll to benefit from (yes, I just said “ya’ll” and yes, I do live in the midwest)
Clean out Dropbox and organize folders (seriously, this is a disaster at the moment)
Update my blog editorial calendar
Batch write 2 weeks worth of posts and keep up with it (this one is SO hard for me. I’m a “write in the moment” kind of gal, but I need to get better at getting some things done ahead of time)
Start brainstorming a month-long challenge I’d like to host on the blog in the new year
Design 1 Brand Kit for the new design shop I’m opening in the new year (more info on this coming soon!)
Finish hanging the curtains in our living room
Decorate for Christmas (yes, you heard that right)
Figure out our daycare/nanny situation
Paint 1 room in the house
Order & send holiday cards (we get our holiday pics taken this weekend. eeek!)
Get the majority of Christmas shopping done (I know… reeaaallll specific, Amanda. I’m just not sure what to expect for my first holiday shopping season with a baby on board!)
Okay, I think that’s enough to conquer in one month, don’t you?
Got a special goal you’re working on this month? Tell me in the comments so we can cheer each other on!
