    Well done great list. Lots are achievable too. Some of mine are but are a bit ambitious. I am over half way though and completed only 35%. Need another kickstart or a win on the lottery :)

    Bluehost makes #1 super easy, especially since you already know how to use wordpress. (I sound like I’m a rep but I swear I’m not! I just had that good of an experience!)

    I love the variety of this goal list. You’re inspiring me! Also, I love that you will only cut out pop for two weeks hahaha… someone once told me they gave up their daily pop and never felt better. So I gave it a try, and sure enough, I felt great! Now I drink it as a treat for the movie theater or other such occasions. Good luck on your list – I believe in you!

    I haven’t participated in the 101 in 1001 challenge but I created a list of 30 goals I want to achieve before age 30. I loved reading your goals for yourself (seriously just makes my type a heart swoon). You have so many great goals I would love to incorporate into my life as well (like not eating out and making homemade gnocci). It also seems like your goals are really going to benefit your blog so I can’t wait to watch your blog continue to grow <3
