I always struggle going back and forth between setting goals, and not setting goals.

Sometimes I find that it brings me even more stress and anxiety, but other times it is so nice to see that I can achieve things. Having goals, especially when they are written down, allows my successes to be real, because I can check mark it.

If you read my post about some of the things I learned since last Blogtober, then I think you will like this one. If you haven`t, you can go check it out here.

Today I`m sharing with you some of my goals to reach by next blogtober.

When I first started this journey, I never would have even dreamed about being where I am now. I am beyond grateful and appreciative for every moment up until this one.

It`s been a very educational and emotional journey, but a journey so worth taking.

So what`s in store for Thoughts with N?

I really want to reach 500 WordPress followers. I am very far away from it, so I`m not sure, but maybe!

I will be opening up to guest posts! (So do let me know if you`d like to write one!)

I want to start a writing series of some kind. I don`t have a plan yet for this one, it is just still bouncing around in my head.

I want to write a few pieces that are relevant to world issues, and not just my perspectives and feelings.

I`d like to guest post more frequently on other blogs.

I want to grow my Wellness and Self-Love program.

I want to reach 100k monthly views on Pinterest .

I think goals are so important, but I think it`s also important to allow ourselves to be human and have feelings. While I would love to accomplish all of this, it`s okay if I don`t.

I want Thoughts with N to cover more areas of Mental Health and not simply my story.

I want it to be a place for people to share their stories.

Do you make goals?

Love Always N

  1. I’m in the exact same conundrum about setting goals. I’m trying to set realistic goals rather than big goals in a short space of time that are unrealistic and bound to just cause me stress. Great post! x

  2. These are great goals and I know you will achieve them! I always make goals but never seem to achieve the majority of them. I’m hoping for different this month!

  3. These are very solid and reachable goals. Now you just have to stick to them 😉
    I’d love to start a blog series, and I’ve got multiple posts written for it already. But with it I’d like to start a newsletter, which takes a bit more work and planning. But I can’t decide what is the best time of year to start a career and self-development -focused blog series… January?

  4. I love this! I do make goals, but like you sometimes I find them helpful and motivating, and other times I find them stressful. So, I think it’s good that you’re not putting too much pressure on yourself with your goals – it’s a really healthy way to do it I think! Hopefully others will be inspired. And, of course, good luck! <3

  5. I struggle sometimes too!
    I always make myself goals but then either forget about them because life gets in the way or get annoyed when I can’t meet them.

    Your goals sound really good! I need
    To make mine for the month ?

    Love Lozza xo

  6. That first sentence really hit me.
    I like to have goals so that I have something to work towards but I’m learning to not be specific with them. I want to leave them not too narrow to remain open-minded but not too broad to give me a little but of direction! ?

  7. Yes! I love making goals for the beginning of each month. Helps me really focus in on what I want out of the month❤️

  8. I do make goals but I am bad at keeping them. I do hope to reach 200 followers. It is slow but I am trying to branch out with my posts for to reach it

  9. I think you’ve set excellent goals for yourself and a realistic timeframe. I, too am doing Blogtober (for the first time) and it will be a challenge! Good luck, and keep us posted as you progress through your goals!!

  10. These seem like really achievable goals, I am relatively new and I am learning so much as I go. I really enjoy series of posts both to write and to read because you can go more in depth on a topic.

    Is Blogtober a hashtag? It would be lovely if you could explain what it is to me ?
