Welcome to week one of the Sumer Time Blog & reader Challenge. This week we’ll be plunging into summer feet first with our first week of posts. Are you ready?  

Summer Goals

Summer goals for your blogs, what you plan to do, what you plan to accomplish and how you plan on doing this.

My summertime goals are all kinds of lame. You still want to hear them? Fine, go ahead, keep reading.

  1. My blog goals are as usual to be creative and be organized.
  2. I want to do more features and feature more authors. If I could cut out the email I would be perfect lol.
  3. My blog goals are hampered because I have a lot more on my plate, so the best thing would be to juggle better…because I have a few more summertime goals besides blogging –>
  4. I have to write two books. Just two. But they are proving tough. Mainly because I can’t sit at my computer for an extended amount of time.
  5. I have the mom guilt about the kid sitting there playing video games and the fact that my butt needs to get in shape so I also have a goal of kind of getting in shape.
  6. Then, I need to get my blog in better shape, so I’m trying to play slave driver to my fellow co-bloggers to get them to help me post.
  7. At some point I would like to go on a vacation – even if it’s just to the Northshore.
  8. It’s about that time to rewatch Buffy, who’s with me?

Summer Goals!

  1. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    Thank you for starting this challenge! It’s a refreshing way to start summer and it’s just fun. What’s this about writing TWO books?! 😀 YAY! Although, no bueno for not being able to sit for extended periods. (I’m not supposed to sit on anything but a yoga ball due to permanent back damage, but it’s not ideal in a lot of places…) I’m currently watching Grey’s Anatomy for the first time ever.

    I love your goals! I always have a hard time trying to stick with mine.

    And I totally agree with needing to rewatch Buffy, I was just thinking about that the other day! 🙂 Thanks for this challenge it’s really awesome.

    Great list!!!! I love this challenge.
    Thanks so much for hosting.
    I can totally see binge watching Buffy this summer. It’s been years since I’ve binge watched them all. I would totally do it with you.
    Have a great day!!!!
