My month in numbers for July 2014

July was all about the pictures. Not surprising from someone who calls her blog "Happysnappy". ;)

For July 2014´s update and goals check in I´m doing {My month in numbers}. It is a project taking place at Julie Kirk´s blog  where you sum up your month with numbers. Here are some inspirational instructions on how to go about it. This is my 28th consecutive participation.

I´m keeping 220 photos and 3 videos for the month. It was my girl´s birthday and that event got a lot of camera attention. :D Here are my favourites from each day. Click on the mosaic to see it bigger.

I followed 09/31 of the #photoprompts for June plus 7 Plan B takes:  Find August´s prompts here in this note on my Facebook page (note available only during August 2014)!

For daily reminders of the #photoprompts Like my Facebook Page here or Follow me on Twitter here.

News of the month:
My girl´s 15th birthday party

"On line" goals:
In July my Paula - Buenos Aires Facebook page grew by 78 followers. I´m hoping for the 900 followers milestone next. Suddenly the "crazy" goal for 2014 of 1000 looks doable. My Twitter account for which I didn´t set goals is growing too. 268 persons are following @PBAtweets.

Btw: everyday at 6pm my time I post a #photoprompt for the next day. Takes off the pressure of thinking what to photograph for your 365 projects, gives you a conversation starter and once you start looking for things you actually SEE more.

Plus I wrote 4 Wednesdays posts and had 1 guest blogger:
+ My June´s numbers.
+ How to plan a party using Pinterest
+ Something I found on Pinterest that I actually made
+ A step by step tutorial on using jars for souvenirs
+ First steps on setting up Pinterest by China Rodriguez 

Remember I got invited to be part of the board of the International Bloggers Association? Well I was promoted to VP of our G+ community which you can join here AND I´m also in charge of the G+  sharing network. It is brand new, come and make your voice heard.

I was invited to cohost linky parties:
+ 4 #ilocesocialsaturday
+ 4 Ultimate Facebook parties
That many linky parties I´ve been doing had been overwhelming for my Happysnappy blog so I moved them to their own site: Nice to meet you

My "hobbies" goals for this year include:
60 layouts (0 so far), 12 fiction books ( 0 in June, 5 total), 6 non fiction ( 0 for June, 3 in total ) and 6 rereadings (1 ! Finally!!!).

My "go out" goals for 2014:
From the 6 new places to eat: this month, that is 2 total  ,  0 craft fairs in June ( 6 total),1 animé exhibitions ( 3 out of total Yay! ) and  from the 3 new Museums the count is still at 1 art exhibit in Jan. and now 1 revisit.

Christie C said...

Looks like a great month for you! I'm constantly taking pics as well

Ann B said...

I am not a big goal setter but I would love to try it for a bit. I think it would really motivate me to have something in writing to work towards.

Margarita Ibbott said...

I love the idea of keeping a tally in numbers. Are you a professional organizer or do you just like organizing? I'm asking because I AM a professional organizer and blogger. I'm keeping an eye on your blog. :)

MaryJane Tauyan said...

Kath Rivera said...

What a very productive month. My mom's kinda lame and I hope this month will be fruitful.

Angele @Shoeboxbegone said...

I love your diagram with the days you took pictures! I keep track of goals, just not as detailed as you :) great post!

Slow and steady wins the race. Building a following online is hard and takes lots of time.

Enjoyed our take on goal setting.

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

Margarita, I was born this way. :D I was the kid who´d spend hours organizing buttons by shape, colour and size. All my dolls had name and surname and I still have a list of them I wrote for "the class".

I´ll be cheering for you MaryJane!

Go for it Kath.

I love lists Angele. :) And I´m the visual type. It´s easier to know how I did with schemes.

Miguel Cruz Cairo said...

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words... definitely a great way to make memories.

Eliz Frank said...

You had a terrific month and I'm impressed by your record keeping. Terrific memories too.

Julie Kirk said...

I've never set out such clear cut goals as you do Paula - it's really quite something! I keep wondering if [like me] you've moved away from using regular scrapbooking as your 'go to' method of life documenting. But with your daily photos you're certainly still memory-keeping though!

Your post is pinned to the Month in Numbers board - for the 28th time!!! - with those from all the other numerical list-makers now:

Here's to a happy-August!

Julie :-)

p.s: Doesn't your daughter look like you?! :-D
