If there’s one thing that I hoped for this year is that I would finally bring my blog to the next level, and that starts with reaching my goals for 2017. I’ve never been really good at keeping up with goals, mostly because I totally forget that I had set them in the first place (oops). This year, I want things to be different. This is why I thought that, after each quarter, I would do a little quarterly goal update. This idea helps me remain proactive and ensures that I actually set a strategy towards reaching my goals.

If you haven’t read the last quarterly update, make sure to check it out here as well! So here’s how I’ve done with my goals for 2017 in the second quarter (April to June).  View Post

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I’ve hit the biggest creative slump lately. That explains why I’ve barely posted anything on here or on Instagram in almost a month. I tried several times to come up with something, but every time I ended up staring at a blank screen, sighing loudly, and turning off my laptop. Been there?
