Do you have goals and dreams for your future? Do you have them written down? Every week, I remind myself of my goals for the month to make sure that I’m on track for hitting them. Sometimes I’m way behind the eight ball, and other times I really feel like I have a good handle on them. Either way though, my site improves and my readers have a better experience from the improvements.

Goals by the End of January

In alignment with my yearly goals, here are my goals for the end of this month:

  1. 725 subscribers
  2. Earn $1,250 with LifeAndMyFinances.com
  3. Brainstorm potential free resource ideas
  4. Pay an extra $1,200 on the mortgage before the end of the month

How Am I Doing?

1) 725 subscribers – Last week, my site has 677 subscribers. I am in the process of adding another option to subscribe at the end of each post – but haven’t quite figured it out yet. Regardless, adding 7 subscribers (I’m now at 684) is pretty decent. I’ll be ecstatic once I break 700! 🙂

2) Earn $1,250 – So far this month, I have earned $1,150 thanks to a new widget ad and a couple of sponsored posts. I should easily earn another $100 to meet my goal of $1,250.

3) Brainstorm New Resources – My only idea so far is free budget sheets….maybe a free widget to calculate an early mortgage payoff. I haven’t had much time to think about this with all of my other projects going on.

4) Pay $1,200 Toward the Mortgage – We’ll most likely be able to pay a handsome amount extra on our mortgage, but I think I’ll wait to add it until our next month payment, and then just stay consistent with that each month. Regardless, it will be exciting! :)
