The beginning of April means a time to recap my goals. I like things in three, therefore my goals were to save money ($6,000 for the year), continue to grow my blog (375 readers daily), and ride my bike (1,000 miles this year). So how am I doing at day 90?


So awesome I took down my widget bar. Of course, I was trying to clean up my side bar so removing this gave me a little more wiggle room.  I’ve been averaging 20 – 25 miles per week which puts me Ahead of the game.


I’ve been trying to live with a new motto: work smarter, not harder and in doing so I’ve been outsourcing some of the nitty-gritty, time-consuming work it takes to run a blog. Blogging is not all fun and games all the time; it takes work! However, I’ve been growing my readership by making sure I write targeted content (finance or small house plans) and even took the time to redesign the look of Little House in the Valley to streamline my topics. Based on my Word Press stats, I’m averaging 300 visits per day.  Progress: Mostly on target.

Saving Money

Still on target I’m glad to admit. Consistently making money has been my roadblock to saving money. So far, so good. If I can just keep this momentum up, I should be able to meet my goal. Progress:  On Target.

Overall, I’m meeting my goals and been consistent since last month. Let this be the recurring theme for the year!
