Cool Internet Stuff, August 2016 Edition

cool internet stuff

Heyo! I took a break from doing Cool Internet Stuff and monthly goals posts last month when I was taking a little break from blogging. But I’m back! And I’m switching things up a little bit. From now on, I’m not going to do posts that outline a list of different goals every month. Instead, I’m going to just focus on one main goal every month. And I’m just going to include it along with the Cool Internet Stuff posts where I round up some of my favorite online finds from each month.

So now it’s time for September! This month, I want to focus on one thing: consistency. I’m working on creating actual routines for my mornings, afternoons, and evenings. And by doing so, I think I can be more consistent with things like blogging, social media, and creating other great content for you guys. So that’s the goal for this month. I’ll report back next month with what I did, what worked, what didn’t, and all that good stuff.

If you have a goal or any other cool internet finds from the last month, feel free to share in the comments!
