The 2014 Directive: July

So I am totally behind the ball on this, but I am jumping in anyhow!  The 2014 Directive is sponsored by Kate and Trudy. The idea is to have a SMART goal each month of the year rather than getting bogged down by one big goal in January that you forget about by March (if you are lucky)! 

I've been working on the setup for this blog for a while now but I want July to be my semi-official launch.  My goals are to post 3-4 times a week, develop an editorial calendar in order to accomplish this, and follow through by utilizing link parties and commenting on others blogs as well.  I feel like July is going to be a great month for me and I am off to a great start.  I hope to show you more as the month progresses, but I have a great blog notebook setup and some ideas from my brainstorming session written down.

Do you prefer New Year's Resolutions or does this Directive ring true to you?  How do you plan your blog posts?  Any recommendations you can send my way would be greatly appreciated!  


  1. So glad to have you jump in, Michele!! Good luck this month - I'm a new follower now so I can't wait to read your posts :)

    1. Thanks Jessica! I love the idea of the smaller goals rather than big resolutions. Thanks for following - I'm glad for the accountability!

  2. I plan mostly around link-ups that hold me responsible to getting things done - WiP Wednesday@Fresly Pieced, Finish it up Friday@ CrazyMomQuilts.
    I also like more social link ups too - Let's bee social, Sew Cute Tuesday, Sunday Stash.

    Good luck on your blog, I started following you today!!
