First Quarter Review

I thought it would be fun idea to take a look at my goals for 2010 and see how I am doing at the end of the first quarter. I think it's important to periodically look at goals to see if you are on track or if adjustments need to be made.
I thought I would break this down into Blog Goals and Shop Goals as I feel they deserve separate attention.
Blog Goals:
  • One of my goals is to post EVERYDAY on this blog. For the entire first quarter of 2010...I am accomplishing this goal!!! I have started scheduling more posts and keeping with my Wordless Wednesday and Friday Features posts :)
  • Another goal was to reach 100 followers. I started the year with 80 followers and I am already up to I'd say this goal is right on track too!
  • I also wanted to change the layout of my blog and make it a three column design. As you can see...I got this done too!!!
  • One area I am falling short in is my giveaways. I wanted to start doing more giveaways, but still haven't gotten to this part. I did participate in the One World One Heart giveaway, but that is it so far. I am still trying to decide if I want to host my own giveaways or have well known giveaway blogs do this for me.

Shop Goals:

  • One of my biggest shop goals is to have 120 sales in 2010! So far this year I have had 23 (according to Etsy). I don't like that they count multiples as one order...but oh well. This is almost 8 sales per month and at this rate, I will not reach my goal of 120. But knowing that my sales in November and December are my highest months, I still believe I can meet this goal :)
  • Another shop goal is to reach 350 shop hearts. I started with 267 and I am now at 294. This equals 9 hearts per month and at this rate I will exceed my goal of 350!!!
  • My last shop goal is to keep my 100% feedback rating. I truly believe I make a quality product and offer excellent customer service, so this goal should be a piece of cake :)

What goals have you set for your blog and shop in 2010? How are you coming along? I'd love to hear about your goals...drop me a comment :)


  1. Oh.. after reading yours I think I have to set mine.. but every time I set a goal or plan something.. it came out the opposite way.. so.. still thinking about it..

  2. Awesome idea, and really nice goals too. I had a set of 10 goals I wanted to accomplish before May 30 2010 so I'll be reviewing those soon, but I'm also really excited to start some new ones!

  3. You are really doing very well with your goals so far. wishing you continued success!

  4. Those are some really good goals you have!

    Keep working hard! You WILL get there!

  5. My goals aren't nearly as laid out as yours. Looks like I have some work to do...vague goals make for vague results I suppose. first 'goal' is to define my goals.
    I really like how you've done it and will use it as a 'guide'.

    Thanks for the inspiration!!

  6. Great progress on your goals! I have a feeling you'll meet your sales goal cause your work is so wonderful!

    I've managed to blog every day so far this year too although I would love to take a blogcation sometime.


Thanks for stopping by!
I love your comments!!!
