September Blogging Goals

September Blogging Goals {VIA}

I have this motivational quote as my wallpaper to my cellphone.

I found this topic over at The SitsGirls under Writing Prompts for September. I love looking through their writing prompt ideas and get my gears turning. After going to the Women Get Social Philadelphia conference, I began looking at my blog and my blogging goals a little differently.

RELATED: Goal Tracking

Everything requires baby steps, however I feel like my blogging and blogging goals are sloth-like baby steps. I seem to start off thinking of “I need to set blogging goals”. Then life happens. A few days later, “I need to get back to setting those blogging goals”. Then life happens. A few days after that, “Here’s a piece of paper, let me get started on setting those goals”.

Being a mother, working, and trying to find balance is nearly impossible, because balance doesn’t really exist. And when you try to find balance in blogging and family, it really doesn’t exist. There is no way, I am going to be able to write my blogging goals (or a post) and give even 65% of my attention to The Get Fit Baby.

So I take the time when I get it.

This morning, I am thinking about my September blogging goals.

I’m going to stick with only three because I know adding more to my plate will only discourage me, if one- let alone ten don’t get accomplished. Besides I have so many other goals that need accomplishing in my personal life, that I need to keep it simple.

  • What do I what to achieve by the end of the month?

By the end of the month I want to have a clear understanding of what my editorial calendar is going to look like for October and if possible, November. I want to have things planned on my editorial calendar and I want to have consistent content to provide to my readers. I love having my series running, such as Fitness Fashion Friday, Motivational Mondays and Workout Wednesdays. They ensure that I will always have something to write and you to read. They are usually fun, easy-to-read pieces that give you health, fitness, and fashion tips.

  • Where do I want to be in my achievement timeline by the end of the month

By the end of the month I want to have every title or series idea listed on my editorial calendar. I want to know what is being posted on each day and how I can either work around it, or through it based on my life’s challenges.

  • What will I settle for? Is settling an option?

I am pretty good at settling. I tend to have low expectations in general in my life. It’s not that I don’t want that mansion in the middle of the woods with the 10 feet high windows that have no curtains, but there’s no one around to look in anyway. It’s just that I have always felt that if I keep my end point attainable, then not hitting it won’t be such a let down. Is settling an option this time? No. I am going to make it my priority to have my editorial calendar planned for the next two months. I want to write. I want you to come back and read. I want to have a blog that is crack-a-lackin with visitors. This time settling is not going to get me there.

What are your September goals?

The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle Informercial

September 13, 2014 in Randomness by The Get Fit Mom

So you know when you see someone on YouTube or your favorite blog (besides mine) and think, “Hey, that person is SO funny”, but then quickly brush it off because they are in cyberspace and you’re just that dot in the night sky that can be mistaken for an airplane? That was me with my new found friend, Jenn Rian. When I first met her, it was in a Facebook Group for the Women Get Social Philadelphia conference hosted by the SitsGirls. She was actually posting a video about her armpits (don’t ask, just go to her Facebook page for more details). When I sat next to her at one of our assigned tables, I was immediately intrigued because of her quirky business card that she handed me.

However, all the pieces started to fall into place. Quirky, witty, blogger, outgoing; if you’re not seeing the picture, this chick was like my virtual soul mate!! Since the conference, which was ending exactly this time a week ago, I have messaged her and commented on her Facebook, probably to an almost-stalker status. But she’s cool with it!

Below is her amazing infomercial-style announcement on an amazing e-book bundle, The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle, that is being offered. I really wanted to make a big to-do about this e-book bundle because it is worth over $1030 and being sold for less than $30. It is an amazing collaboration of some of the best authors on subjects ranging alternative health to skin care, gardening, and meal budgeting.

Since I can ramble on and on and on about how wonderful this bundle is, I am just going to leave all the details to Jenn in her video.

When ordering your Healthy Living Bundle, be sure to order through this link.

And don’t forget to check out how funny and awesome Jenn really is. I mean, you can take my word for it…. But…. you’d better just go see for yourself!


My New Love Interest- Keurig 2.0 Introduction

September 10, 2014 in For The Home by The Get Fit Mom

I was selected by Influenster to review the new, sleek, and modern Keurig 2.0. I was beyond excited to review this for Influenster, since I am probably the one of Keurig’s biggest fans. I was alone (which if you know me, knows this never happens) on a Sunday morning recently and thought it was the perfect time to open my big box and get to brewing. The following video is an introduction to my Keurig 2.0 (to be named something phenomenal later).

Disclaimer: This is an introduction to the Keurig 2.0 Model K550. I received it from Influenster in exchange for a my opinion about the new brewing system. It has not been established that a video or post was necessary for the review. All opinions are my own and do not reflect those of Influenster or Keurig.
