The Blogmopolitan Quiz!

Hey y'all. Yes, I still exist. I'm working on some big things (not really) so that's why I'm been too busy (lazy) to blog lately. But thankfully, Erin @ Two Thirds Hazel has inspired me to post with The Blogmopolitan Quiz. Check out my answers below, share yours in the comments, and don't forget to visit Two Thirds Hazel to read more!

Bonus: I had so much fun with this, I did the first 2 as well!

Wow. I have no words for my lack of commitment to my monthly goals this year. Maybe my lull in blogging is a contributing factor? I'm hoping to change that in a big way very soon.

My June goals were such a flop. I didn't read any books. I haven't read a book in the last few months, even though it has been on my list each time. I didn't cook dinner every week, but we did eat at home at least once a week -- only A cooked most of the time. Instead of planning our July 4th trip, I decided that neither of us should take off work or spend unnecessary money -- so grilling out and fireworks at home it is! I did a horrible job of taking photos. Even when I was in Omaha, I only snapped a few grainy iPhone pics. I didn't meet my goal of cleaning every day, either. Instead I just made messes every day.

I am trying to rediscover my written voice. Hopefully I can use this space as a trial and error. I mean, that's what it is has been since I started it, right? So, without further ado…here are my July goals.

Write every day. Publish twice a week.
Send handwritten letters.
Put pictures in my office.
Order a new planner.
Work on a new blog design.

Writing has always been my creative outlet. I want to write every day this month…and publish at least two posts a week. Hopefully those posts will be worth posting and not just fillers. 

Handwritten letters are the best and I don't send enough.

My office is very plain. If I feel like I'm in my own space, hopefully I'll be more creative.

My planner ends in July, so I need a new one. I use my planner for everything…event planner, work reminders, meal planning, cleaning schedules, birthdays, blog post planning, and more. I do believe I'll go with Erin Condren again this year. 

Once I rediscover my voice…I want a fresh space to share it with you.

Do you set yearly or monthly goals? How are you doing in keeping them?
