This summer there is a lot I want to accomplish. There are so many things I want to do to treat my blog more like a business, but I also have to prepare to homeschool for the first time in the fall. And I want to spend more time with my family doing fun things. So, I’m creating this bucket list to keep me on task. I don’t want to get to the end of August and wonder where all the time went!
Here are the things I’d like to accomplish this summer. Yes, you can call me a crazy dreamer.
Create a newsletter for my blog
Post to Fiscal Phoenix at least once a week.
Have my site redesigned so it’s mobile friendly
Develop an editorial calendar for August through December
Get caught up on my reviews and giveaways
Write at least 25 posts ahead for those busy fall, homeschooling days
Comment on the blogs I follow at least 3 times a week
Clean up my e-mail accounts and computer files
Buy Bookworm’s books
Find more free curriculum for the girls
Create independent work for each child to do when I’m working one-on-one with another child
Organize our homeschool room and move our play area to the living room
Plan our homeschool year and daily calendar
Find a babysitter (Our current one is leaving to go to grad school, which is too bad because she’s wonderful!)
Continue to work with the girls on ABCMouse.com
Attend at least two festivals or other events with the family
Go to the blueberry fields to pick
Can blueberry jam and syrup
Take the kids to the zoo at least once
For now, that’s my list. As I think of more, I’ll add to them. I’ll also update this post every two weeks or so to keep myself accountable. 🙂
Do you write a summer bucket list? If so, what’s on yours?
