I can’t believe it is May again. I can’t believe time still has flown by in lockdown but here we are. May has always been one of the busiest months socially of the year besides December. Of course, we are still dealing with the pandemic so it is a little bit different again. But I am still going to make the best of it. That is all we can do, right? So here are my goals for May.
My goals for May
Read 10 books
So the other day I was on Twitter and then I saw this blog post from someone about the books that were coming out in May and I suddenly my wishlist became longer and longer. There were so many books on that list that I wanted to read. There were 50 books on that list that I wanted to read. But reading 50 books in just one month is quite impossible for me. I still have my social media/blog, my part-time job and a life. So I decided to set a goal of reading 10 books in May. That is double what I normally would read. Not sure which one I am going to read. I guess I am going to pick a few from that list and see if I can buy them for my Kobo e-reader here in the Netherlands. And of course, you can find the reviews of those books here on my blog.
Work on my blog and social media accounts
I want to create more content this month. I want to write daily blog posts, I want to make more YouTube videos again, I want to make more TikTok videos and create awesome Instagram posts. But I also want to interact with other content creators. I want to spread the love basically through my blog/social media channels and by commenting/liking someone else’s work/content.
My own birthday is at the end of May but that is not the only birthday this month. My brother’s birthday was yesterday (May 1st) and my mom’s birthday is next week (May 8th). It is going to be a busy month, but there are still lockdown restrictions here in the Netherlands. We can only invite a few people (like 1 or 2) over but these are the birthdays I am going to.
So as you can see not a lot of goals but I can say that reading 10 books and working on my blog/social media channels is a lot of work. I want to attract more views. I want others to see the things I am creating. Right now, my blog views are low again and I just wished that others would see my content too.
