Happy New Year + My 2015 Goals (For the First Time EVER!)

I don't make resolutions.  While I may have certain goals in mind, I usually don't write them down and I definitely don't share them (not even with family).

But, I want to have a more concrete plan.  I want to accomplish my goals this year. I think if I have them written down, I will know where I want to be and will have an easier time getting there.


While my blog is primarily a giveaway and review blog, I would like to add more of me to my blog.  I do LOVE giveaways but there is more that I want to talk about.  

I love trying new recipes and do so at least once a week.  I'm hoping to embark on a major house renovation within the next year or 2, we are a one income 5 person family living in 1008  square feet, I have a daughter who is a competitive gymnast....all of that to say, I want to add more about parenting, gymnastics, recipes, home improvements, finances, budgeting, DIY, etc...basically, more of me and my life.  


My goals for
  • to increase my social media following to 48,500 . It's currently at 36,675.
  • post 2 non-giveaway articles and 1 recipe a week.  
  • to have $200 in blog income a month.  My highest month last year was $171.82 and  my monthly average for the last year was $73.85.
  • Decrease  International Alexa ranking below 100,000.  It's currently at 214,587.
  • Decrease US Alexa Ranking below 20,000.  It's currently at 31,442.
  • Increase monthly pageviews to atleast 20,000.

My financial goals:

  • Pay off my van in June
  • Save $1,378 using the 52 Week Money Challenge
  • Save at least $5,000 towards our home addition
  • Buy a laptop
  • Keep a checkbook register

My fitness goals:

(I got a MisFit Flex for Christmas, which is a fitness and sleep monitor)

  • Walk 4,000 steps a day

I'm being REAL conservative here because I know myself.

My Marriage goal:

Have a date night once a month

My Mommahood goal:

Have a date once a month with each of my sweetgirls.

So there you have it! I’ll try post updates at the beginning of each month to let you know the progress I made in the previous month.

Since this is the first year that I've made concrete goals and I've made them public, I hope I haven't bit of more than I can chew...

  1. Stephanie,
    You are a busy lady with a great sense of your strengths. I am sure you will hit your goals running and may need to set new ones when you smash through the ones you have set.
    Happy Creating in 2015,
