January 2014 Round Up

January did not go by too fast. It actually moved at a nice pace for me and I’m proud of the things I’ve accomplished. In addition to my regular monthly goals, I have projects scheduled for the first five months of the year and as I type I’ve completed all but two things off of my January Projects list! In my Meetup post next week I’ll talk about the goals, but for the round up let’s talk about those projects.

I’m actually two months ahead on my graphic design company goals. Not only did we come up with a name, but the logo is complete and I’ve started initial work on getting social media names and website set up. This makes me really happy. Although we still have quite a bit to get done before we can launch, I love that this is moving smoothly and faster than planned.

January was my first month using an editorial calendar and I have to say, I love it. I’m still stuck on post ideas a lot of the time, but having the posts I do know I’m going to write planned ahead of time helps a lot. I’ve written an editorial calendar up for February and I’m hoping it goes as smoothly as January did. Putting aside time on the weekends to focus on blog writing is also helping.

AND – In case you haven’t noticed yet – I did some sprucing up on the blog! Our About page is all new, the sidebar is mostly new and the photo of us is new as well! I also changed my personal photo on twitter, etsy and google + so that they all match.

Projects I did not complete – mission statement for fallenpeach and a newsletter schedule for 2014. I’ll push these in to February and see how it goes!

Do you schedule projects for yourself each month ? How much did you get done in January?
