To Do List: September 2016

Where did September go? I can’t believe we’re in October already! Don’t get me wrong though, it’s all good because it means our holiday is just around the corner!!

I seemed to have quite a big to do list for September, but from reading other people’s to do lists, I have realised it’s OK not to complete these – I can just carry them over to the next month. So here’s what I had planned:

  1. Schedule tweets – I used Hootsuite for this and it took an age to do because I scheduled all of my previous blog posts. Once it had been done though, it was brilliant as I could just sit back, relax and not have to worry about promoting previous posts.
  2. Jam Jam’s blog post – I had planned to get this post completed in September, but time has run away with me and as I want to bake with this product I would prefer to take my time rather than rush it and write something half hearted, so this has been moved over to October’s to do list.
  3. Organic & Botanic review – This post was about a moisturiser which was kindly sent to me to try out – you can catch the post here.
  4. August to do list – you can catch up on my round up of August here.
  5. Decoupage post – So over the last couple of months I have done quiet a bit of decoupage for friends and family, so I had planned to write a post on these. Again September ran away with me and I ran out of time, so this post has been moved over to October as well. I can see October being mega now with everything else I have planned!!
  6. White Hart meal review – As it was Andy’s birthday at the start of September I treated him to a meal at our favourite restaurant – you can catch up on it here.
  7. Primark make up post – I watched a vlog by Saira which was all about Primark’s make up and the review she gave for the most of the products was brilliant, so I thought I would treat myself and test it out for myself! You can find Saira’s vlog here and the post I wrote here.
  8. Novello Lounge review – this is a new restaurant which has opened in the town where I live. I was invited to the opening night where we had free food and drink for a few hours. You can read what I thought about this place here.
  9. 2,100 tweets – each month I give myself a target of tweets to hit, just so I don’t become lazy and just scroll through to Twitter and it also makes me interact with other bloggers. I managed to achieve this with still a week to go!
  10. 485 followers on Twitter – I have to say, I absolutely smashed this! I finished on 508 which is 240 followers up from last month! Thanks to each and everyone of you who has followed me and stuck around!
  11. 549 blog views – Again, I smashed this too! I finished on 668 views which is 248 views up from last month. I was and in fact still am, completely buzzing about this!

So, that’s all of my September to do list. I have to say it’s my best month yet and I can’t wait to see what October brings!

How did your September go? Did you manage to do everything on your to do list?

  1. Massive congrats on hitting your goals lovely and you have inspired me to get scheduling tweets for next month. It’s something I always plan to do but never get round to doing because it is SO boring, but it is definitely worth it!

  2. I’ve never read a post like this before! It’s such a good idea! I love a good checklist and I love that you aim to reach a certain amount of followers, tweet and visits! Might have to steal this idea!

  3. I haven’t read a blog post like this before! This is such a good idea that I kind want to do over at my blog too! I think it’s so great to like share what you need to get done because it keeps you accountable. It’s great that you got a lot of the stuff on your list done. Good job! I hope you accomplish what you need to get done for October!
