Reflect: my October goals and achievements


I usually don’t look at numbers when it comes to my blog, unless I’m checking up on my personal goals which I’d set for MelaninTalks. This is mostly due to me not wanting to become fixated by the amount of followers, likes and comments etc (this doesn’t mean that I’m not forever grateful for everyone’s love on my blog tho). I mainly blog because I enjoy sharing contents that I’m passionate about with everyone, and in hope that it reaches someone.

Throughout October, I have been participating in Blogtober and truth be told, it’s definitely harder than it first looked hahah. However, I’ve enjoyed it at the same time to say the very least. I specially want to say a BIG thanks to you, as without you being a follower or stumbling across my blog by mistake, you wouldn’t have made it to MelaninTalks. I never expected to see the rise in followers, as it wasn’t that long ago that I had reached my September goal of 100 followers on here. Before I get too soppy, let’s discuss my October goals that I’ve set aside.

By the end of October I’d like to…

  • Reach 250 followers on MelaninTalks
  • Reach 900 followers on my Instagram
  • Reach 800 followers on my Twitter
  • Interact more with new bloggers on social media (as I’m not as consistent with this as I’d like to be)
  • Branch out to educate myself (in the coming weeks I’ll be attending a bloggers brunch, purpose leaders event and some others too)

Those are pretty much everything for my October goals and yes it may be short, but I’ve got a lot more in store for my blogging journey. Other than being able to set my goals, I get to see how far I’ve come since my first ever upload (thanks to WordPress). Hence I thought of sharing my current stats too.

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post as I look on my progress and future goals for the end of the month. I wish for nothing more than success for your blogs too in the coming months.

Did you set yourself October goals which you’ve met? Got a new project happening? Feel free to share and post them below in the comments section.

Hope you have a lovely afternoon.

Yours Truly,

Melanin Talks x



  1. It’s great to set yourself goals and targets for each month so you can keep yourself motivated, this is such a great habit and mentality to have. It is probably best to not get wrapped up in stats because that can really dishearten and irritate you. Congrats on your progress lovely and I can’t wait to see more content from you! ❤
