2018 Goals | Final Update

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve all had an amazing week. Can you actually believe that this is the last day of 2918 already? Where has this year gone!

If you’ve followed my blog since January you’ll know that I made a list of blogging, Social Media and personal goals I wanted to achieve in 2018. The list was quite the length and some goals were far more attainable than others!

Here is a link to the original post: https://ashleighbekkah.wordpress.com/2018/01/04/my-goals-for-2018/

For today’s post I thought I’d do a final update on these goals and whether I’ve achieved more since my previous update in August. You can check out that post here: https://ashleighbekkah.wordpress.com/2018/08/04/2018-blogging-goals-8-month-update/.

I hope you enjoy,
