Hey. So I’m back today with a new blog post on how to start setting goals that you’ll actually be able to achieve. Everyone always says ‘Learn your Goal and Strive Towards It’. But they never tell us how. Setting goals is easy. But striving for them? Nah. I could say ‘I’ll earn 100k pageviews in one day;)” but we all know that’s practically impossible. 99 percent, what’s going to happen is I’m going to see a cute tumblr quote about having dreams and just sit back and be like, “Yeah, I’ll just keep on dreaming my dreams.” But that’s NOT IT. You have to work for those dreams to become reality. But working…that can be hard. IDENTIFY WHERE YOU’RE STRUGGLING This means, for me, is identify why you can’t achieve all the goals you previously set. Is it because they are too hard? They’re out of your league? You’re always…

HOW I STARTED Back in November of 2016, I really got obsessed with blogs. I would stare at them for hours, read millions of ‘how to start a blog’ posts, and just crave my own. I tried out so many platforms, but most of them were paid. That was before I had unlocked the full potential of blogger. I started blogging with blogger, and fell in love – customization was limited, but all of it was free! I bought a template from pipdig, customized it, put up my first blog post, and that’s where I began. Soon after, close to the end of December, I felt like blogger wasn’t completely fulfilling my needs. I wanted a more solid space, and that I could get from WordPress (ORG) only. At that time, I was also about to build my author website, which my parents were paying for. At that time, Siteground…

I get blogging stress all the time because blogging is not all rainbows and sunshine and it’s not all that easy. It can be stressful – really stressful. Trust me. I know from my own personal experience. Don’t get confused, blogging is fun – but also stressful, especially if you’re really that serious about it. Related Post: 5 Things to Do to Get Rid of Stress. MY BLOGGING STRESS I want to start off by saying that I was pretty committed to my blog right off the bat. I’d been seeing so many blogs, obsessing over them, staring at their ‘How to Start a Blog’ posts for hours, staring at the bluehost web page for days, watching full time bloggers talk about their lives, and everything. I was so committed and determined. For the first month, that is, January 2017, I was very committed to my blog. I’d post every…

Bullet Journal Supplies. When I first started bullet journaling, I was most confused about what supplies to use. This was mostly because most of the famous brands other people were talking about (e.g. sharpies, etc.) were not available in my country. This is just a small post about what supplies I use – again, what I use, not what I recommend. MY BULLET JOURNAL For my journal, I use this ‘anchor journal’ that I got at Target on my trip to USA. It’s really nice and though almost no one uses these kinds of notebooks, I’ve said this before, there are no rules here! You’re free to do whatever you want to do. I personally find my ring-bound notebook to be much more convenient and ‘free’ than a typical journal. It’s really easy to open and write in, and plus it’s really cute, which is really motivating. I don’t know…
