May Family Goals Printable and May Blog Goals

Well spring has finally sprung here in Southern Ontario!  I love spring and summer and I'm so happy to see all the flowers blooming and signs of new life everywhere after a long winter.  And the warm weather is great too :)

I'm here today to share the May Family Goals printable with you.  A few months ago I posted about how we use our monthly family goals sheet and I plan to share a new one each month so you can also create a monthly goals page in your family.

Going with pretty purple butterflies this month to celebrate spring!

I really hope this page helps you achieve your goals this month in your family!  

OK, on to the second part of this post... my monthly goals for the blog.

A couple of months ago I told you that I would be changing up how I do these review posts.  Instead of all the stats, links, and reflecting back, I'm just going to be looking at the month ahead.

If you're new to the blog and would like to catch up on some of my older posts, you can view the monthly reviews here.

If you've missed any posts this month, you can read all the April posts here.

I'd still love some input from you on what you like or don't like about month-end posts.  Nothing's ever set in stone so if there's something you'd like to see or something you don't like about monthly review posts, please let me know!

I'm 1 for 4 on the goals I set last month.  Not great :(  I knew April was going to be a busy month and it turned out to be even busier than I expected.  Good busy though... lots of great family time :)

I did get some blog maintenance tasks done, but I have more I'd like to do.  I worked on organizing our upstairs bathroom and it's nearly finished, but I haven't shared it on the blog yet.  And I still haven't written a guest post.

I also said I was going to launch a de-cluttering challenge in April, but I actually launched an email de-cluttering challenge instead.  I'm really excited about this challenge and I know I'm not alone in feeling overwhelmed and unproductive when I open my inbox and am faced with thousands of old emails.  I'm just doing a little at a time and it's amazing how much of a difference it's making already.  You can join in at any time!

So, I'll put the other de-cluttering challenge on hold for awhile but keep your eyes open for it in the future :)

Here are my goals for May:
  1. Continue purging emails and encouraging others to do the same through the You've Got {Too Much} Email! challenge.  
  2. Finish organizing our upstairs bathroom and share bathroom organizing tips on the blog.
  3. Complete more blog maintenance tasks {I know, it's still a vague goal but I do know the things I want to complete - it's just kind of tedious to list them here :)}.
I teased you last month and the month before about some exciting news coming up.  Believe it or not, it still hasn't happened (it's completely beyond my control and I'm not very patient... can you tell?!}.  So again this month I can't tell you more.  But as soon I'm able to, I will definitely fill you in :)

But, I am excited to be celebrating my First Year Blogiversary this month!  I can't believe I've been blogging for nearly a year.  It has flown by!  Any ideas how I should celebrate this milestone?!

So, what are your family, personal, or blog goals for May?  And what do you think about monthly review or monthly goals posts?    

Happy organizing!
