I know I cut it a bit close, but over the weekend (the last weekend of March), I actually did sit down and make a plan for Sustainably North for the next few months. I used the blog planner I picked up from Tickled Think last week as a starting point for my blog plan. I’m keeping the basic plan I came up with earlier in March, at least for the next few months (I can reassess at that time and see if it’s working). I’m going to start posting a smaller post on Fridays, too; that’s going to be more fun things like quotes or pictures (plus I can write the monthly post about bUneke for a Friday, too). I’ve got an idea of topics for the next three months, and I’ve decided on the actual Monday essay posts for the rest of April (as well as a book to review). So now I have to get going and actually write/read everything!
Over the weekend I sat down with the productivity planner I got from Tickled Think, too. I was able to come up with goals for roughly the next year. In terms of Sustainably North, those goals involve growing the blog. In terms of other projects, those goals involve finishing them. I don’t have definitive time tables for anything, just roughly what I want to accomplish in the next month, three-six months, and year. I wasn’t able to come up with any goals at this time beyond the year mark because I want to see where I’m at.
So with that being said, for April I want to get the next 2 months of Sustainably North written and scheduled, as well as get a 1st draft of the Make Your Way story done. I know I’ve been saying that for the last few months, but I want it finished so I can move onto other things. Beyond that, I need to get my next article written for bUneke Magazine before the 10th, so that’ll be happening too.
Thinking of bUneke, I did manage to get a few more book reviews from Sustainably North cut down to the length they wanted and submitted yesterday. So that’s pretty exciting. Unfortunately I’m almost out of books I’ve reviewed on Sustainably North, so I guess I need to get reading, too!
All in all, this was a good week of planning. And now I’m going to have a busy April. Wish me luck – I’ll let you know how things are going next week! 🙂
