Welcome to Weekly Wishes, a personal goal setting community where you can share your upcoming dreams and hold yourself accountable to achieve them. I’d love for you to join us and add a link to your own goal-oriented blog post! It’s a great way to make new friends from around the world and gain some motivation to achieve your weekly aspirations.
Hello friends and Happy Monday. :) This past week was spent working and shopping around for some new living room items. My living room is really starting to feel like a “home” now and I’m so happy with how it’s coming along. I’ve never decorated something so intensely, but I actually really, really enjoy it. It’s kind of like graphic designing…but in physical form! It was also a close friend’s birthday this weekend, so I was happy to see and celebrate with him. :) Other than that, things have been pretty lowkey lately. Just working away and trying to enjoy the stillness. :)
In other news…after a ridonkulous amount of thought, I’ve decided to retire Weekly Wishes at the end of this month.
I’ve been hosting this linkup every week for almost two years now, and I have loved seeing it grow into a community of go-getters. It’s beautiful to see so many people come together to set goals and make things happen and I enjoy every comment and email I receive from people who have said that Weekly Wishes has helped them accomplish their goals. It’s such a simple practice, but I’m amazed by the impact people have seen from it. To the people who regularly participate, I am so impressed and humbled by your participation.
But as with anything, I think it’s important to take stock every now and then and decide if something still fits into your life and goals. As much as I LOVE goal setting and creating communities, I think I’ve let Weekly Wishes sit stagnantly for too long and haven’t put the TLC into it that it deserves. It feels like a project that’s “there,” but that I haven’t had the time to love or care for in recent months. Instead of letting it trot along without much direction, I think it would be best to let it retire. You are, of course, welcome to continue writing weekly goals on your blog. In fact, I encourage it! I also won’t be disappearing from the goal-setting game completely. Rather than sharing weekly goals, I’ll be sharing monthly goals in longer form, with goals and stats for myself and The Nectar Collective. I hope you’ll find those posts even more informative and interesting. They won’t be a linkup, but you’re welcome to leave a link to your own posts in the comments — I’d love to read them!
Lastly, as Weekly Wishes retires, I’ll soon be launching a new project with the similar objective of “creating progress.” It’s called The Blog Hive and it’s geared toward bloggers and business owners who want to create a buzzing, beautiful, and profitable blog. If you want to stay in touch with the Weekly Wishes community, The Blog Hive will likely be a great place to do that. :) You can sign up for our newsletter for updates on when that will be released. I can’t wait! It’s one of the big passion projects I’ve been working on lately. :) Though it’s a little different, I think it will be the perfect successor to Weekly Wishes.
Again, thank you for participating in Weekly Wishes and being here, now. It’s hard to let go of a project that has been part of TNC for so long, but when it’s time, it’s time. Thank you so much for understanding! I will be doing one last round of Weekly Wishes next week for anyone who would like to participate in the last one. :)READ MORE >>
